So, after pinpointing his Craven County involvement to a period between 1864-1867, I turned my attention to Hood's sermons from that period.
Was there anything evident in his messages to the Church that would hint of his political and social aspirations for his people in the way that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had presented?
While waiting for two books of Hood sermons to arrive via InterLibrary Loan (ILL), I turned my attention to the Census between 1850 and 1930. . .
Who were the men noted as ministers in Township 5? What were their affiliations? On what level of the family tree might they have made an impact? And what would tracing their family over time show about their careers?
