REBECCA J.3 BARLOW, (Bryant2, John1), daughter of WILLIAM BRYANT BARLOW and NANCY HERRINGTON/HARRINGTON, was born May 1833, and died 28 June 1911 in Forrest Co Mississippi, burial in Morristown Cemetery, Petal, Forrest Co Mississippi.  (Gary Barlow documented the death date years ago when he visited the cemetery before somebody destroyed the tombstones and re-sold plots in this cemetery.)

She married COLON RICHARD HOOD c1858.  The son of John Thomas Hood and Mary ____, he was born August 1832 [1900 census], or c1836 all other census, and died before 1910.   He and Rebecca divorced c1890-91.  See 1900 census records.   Colon was a private in the 27th MS Reg, Co B, Infantry.
Gary Barlow writes:  hen I was helping to clean out my parents' home in 2012, I found a few old notes I made when I was about 16 years old, including a family tree. I dug up those notes today hoping to find a date of death for Rebecca Barlow Hood, daughter of Briant and Nancy Barlow. I thought it might be there because I knew I had gone to Morriston Cemetery at that time to see her grave. My grandfather told me it was there, as he knew her well since she lived during her later years with him, his half-sister Ava, his mother and his stepfather, who was her son Duncan R. Hood. In fact, the picture of her I sent you belonged to my grandfather and he was the person who identified it as being Rebecca. Looking at those old notes today I didn't find the exact date but on the family tree I made at that time I did list her death year as 1912. I'm certain I got that from her grave marker. I did re-visit that cemetery in 2012 but unfortunately her marker is no longer there. A woman who was there tending to another grave told me that the previous owner had removed quite a few old grave markers and re-sold those plots. She did say he was successfully sued by several relatives of people whose markers were removed and lost control of the cemetery. When I'm back down there, I will try to go by Forrest County Chancery Court and see if I can find records on that lawsuit and contact the lawyer involved. Maybe there's an outside chance they didn't destroy the markers but just buried them or something and they still exist. Not a great chance, I know, but worth looking into. I know Rebecca's husband, Colin Hood, was buried there, too, but his marker was removed as well. What a shame and what a despicable thing to do. But at any rate, I'm certain at least that Rebecca died in 1912.

Wilson Farnham writes: I have been chasing a relative named Aletha Walters Pitts Byrd, that I believe married Colon Richard Hood. Do you know what became of them? An Aletha Byrd is found in the home of Justice Walters in the 1870 census, with a daughter, Mary Pitts. Unsure of her Byrd marriage. Aletha (if this is the right person was married to James Monroe Pitts first. See the Jones County 1850 census; he was said to have killed someone and left the state for Louisiana and Texas. He was the father of my ggrandfather William Walton Pitts of Jones County. GGrandpa found him with a new wife and family in Texas, but was sent home (16 years old then).
