Hood

Harriet and Levi Hood had twelve children. Bishop James Walker Hood is their son. Through his writings we know that his parents were stationmasters and the home he grew up in, on the Pennsylvania/Delaware border, was a station on the Underground Railroad. Levi was a minister in the AUC for 40 years. Harriet worked with Quakers on the Assistant Fair Committee (which meant she helped to make clothes, etc. for freedom seekers) and spoke at the 12th annual meeting of the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society.
