An unknown, unmarked grave stone in the old and historic Hood cemetery in rural Texas. Hood Cemetery is a one-acre site that dates back to 1845 and the many settlers who came to what is now called Tarrant County during the first few years of permanent Anglo settlement in the area.
The cemetery is one of Tarrant Countyâ€™s oldest. The burial grounds were part of an original 640-acre survey given to Thomas M. Hood as part of the first land grant in 1841 commonly referred to as Peters Colony or Peters Colonists when Texas was a republic. Peters Colonists were given 640 acres of property for settling in this part of Texas as part of Texas' efforts to help colonize the young Republic. Thomas Hood and his family moved to North Texas from Missouri.
There are several unmarked graves like this as well as several confederate soldiers who lay at rest here in this well kept and historic cemetery in North Texas.
