(Robert) George Hood, the son of Andrew Hood and Ann Scott, was born July 28, 1880 in Howick Township, Huron County, Ontario. According to the Cass County, North Dakota U.S. Federal Census for 1900, George had come to the United States one year earlier in 1899, probably with his sisters Annie and Martha, and Annie's husband Jake Halliday. His brother John is listed beside the rest of the siblings as having come to the United States in 1896. George's occupation is recorded on the census as a barber, and that was his occupation for his whole life.

George only lived in North Dakota for a few years, before relocating to Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. George lived in Alberta for the rest of his life. On his father's obituary, it mentions that George was on his way to attend his father's funeral. The only other time he probably saw his Hood family was in about 1940, when the siblings had a reunion in North Dakota/Minnesota. All of the brothers and sisters were at the reunion (except for the oldest brother who had died in the 1800's), along with their first cousin Rob McMorran, who was also raised by George's parents. George was married Nov. 1, 1905/6 to Bertha Jane Follis. Bertha was born June 5, 1882/83 at Tara, Bruce County, Ontario, the daughter of Thomas William Follis and Jane Babington. The Follis family had also lived in North Dakota for a few years before moving to Alberta. The couple may have met in North Dakota, but that has not been documented. George and Bertha had four children: Eleanor Margaret, Gordon Follis, Mildred Jane and (George) William "Bill".
