The following is from "A Twentieth Century History of Trumbull County, Ohio" by Harriet Taylor Upton. Lewis Publishing Company. 1909.
"Henry Hood, retired farmer of Mineral, Trumbull Co, was born on the farm where he now resides in Weathersfield township. Henry is a son of Simon Hood who came to Liberty in 1804 from Penn.
Henry Hood commenced life by working at the cooper's trade and on various farms. He enlisted in Company F, 171st Infantry Regiment, Apr 27, 1864 having been a member of the Ohio State National Guard for five years. He was mustered out of service August 20, 1864. He was in the Battle of Kellar's Bridge, Kentucky where six hundred union troops were attacked by three thousand Confederate soldiers. The Union soldiers were armed with condemned arms and being out numbered were forced to surrender after a sharp engagement. After being a prisoner for twenty four hours, he with his comrades were paroled on account of the Union Army pressing Confederate troops. Then they were compelled to march fifty miles to the Ohio River where at Augusta they captured a boat and compelled the crew to transport them to Cincinnati, where they were again sent to the front. In that first engagement he was wounded in the knee, also a bullet struck his belt buckle and glanced off, the buckle doubtless saving his life.
For a number of years he followed the cooper's trade but of late years engaged in general farming. On account of his age he is now retired from active work abandoning such in 1905.
He has a farm of nineteen acres upon which he resides and owns three hundred and seventy five acres in Kentucky.
He is a Republican and has several times held local office including supervisor. He was at one time a member of the Mineral Ridge Grange. He was one of the honored members of the Grand Army of the Republic, McPherson Post at Niles. In his church faith, adheres to that of the Methodist Episcopal denomination in which he has been a Sunday School Teacher. He has also held the church offices of steward and trustee of which board he is now an honorary member. He is one of the oldest members of the church to which he now belongs."
