The Children of
Anninias "Annie" Hardaway & John Oliver Hood
Perhaps the most obscure of the spouses married into the original 'Hardaway-Nine', John Oliver Hood was quite possibly born sometime in 1866 in Texas. It is known that he married Anninias Hardaway, but not when, based on the recorded birth of their first son to reach adulthood. Anninias is thought to have passed away before the 1900 census year, given her children were split up among her brother's, Montgomery and Hillory Hardaway, by that time.
LORADO RANDLE (nee HOOD)
Thomas completed a country school education at Hoods Point School, beginning first in 1902. He traversed through Waco before resettling in the City of Fort Worth, found listed as a janitor for First ME Church in the City of Waco's City Directory. In fact, he spent the majority of his life performing custodial duties. He completed a draft registration for World War One on September 12, 1918, out of Fort Worth, Texas. He also registered for World War Two in 1942 while working at the Neil P. Anderson Building as a custodian in Fort Worth. Tom married and had a daughter--whose mother was called Sarah:
EXA HOOD (1911-1996)
Tom Sr. was then married, and divorced in about 1939, by Mattie Bell Randle. To that union were born:
Stillborn HOOD (1921-1921)
THOMAS A.J. HOOD JR. (1922-2010)
CLARA LOUISE HOOD (born in 1926)
MARIAN JEAN HOOD COOK (1926-1987)
PAUL EUGENE HOOD (1929-1994)
PAULINE 'PAULA' HOOD
After his divorce from Mattie, Tom Sr. married to a woman named Beulah (who identified herself as Bertha when she informed Tom's death certificate), and lived out his days at 5905 Bonnell St. in Fort Worth, working at the Neil P. Anderson Building as a custodian.

A John Oliver Hood Jr. informs Delia Hood White's death certificate in 1943, and indicates 1316 E. Jefferson Ave., Dallas, TX, as his residence. Research in the Dallas , TX City Directory during the corresponding decade does not seem to confirm this allegation.
