Long time no see!!!
I've done a good bit of searching today, but can't find anything concrete.
However, I think I've found just the lead you've been looking for!
Try the John Bell Hood Society at:
A number of Hood descendants are on the Board of this organization/museum.
I'm sure that some of these folks can help your friend!
We miss you in the Gainesville Vols!
Hope you are achieving wonderful things personally and professionally!
Please give my best to your wonderful Dad! -- Jim Huffman, Adj./Ed.
