Thayer's Notes:

a According to The Galveston Daily News, Aug. 28, 1894, also genealogical sources online appearing to follow printed sources, Duncan Hood was the son of Indicates a West Point graduate and gives his Class.John Hood, the Confederate general. The same sites give his birthplace as New Orleans, La.

b The most recent volume of the Supplements to Cullum's Register available to me (1950), which may also be the most recent volume in the public domain, does not record Mr. Hood as having died. I've been unable to discover any information as to his death.
