I do hope you can help me with a genealogy project I am working on.
According to the Milam County Election Register Jeremiah A. Hood was elected the Sheriff of Milam County on
October 22, 1843.
On Feb 3, 18454 he was elected to serve the county as County Clerk.
If you have any information on Jeremiah A. Hood I would appreciate you sharing it with me.
The maternal uncle of Jeremiah Hood, Robert H. Flaniken (Flanniken?), was Sheriff of Milam county in 1845.
I am also searching for information about him.
I will very much appreciate your help.
Thank you for contacting the Milam County Historical Commission.
I have forwarded your info request to the members of the Milam County Historical Commission and others
interested in Milam County history.

I was able to spend a brief time in the Lucy Hill Patterson Memorial Library (Rockdale, TX.) genealogy section
yesterday afternoon. Unfortunately, I found very little information related to Jeremiah A. Hood although I had
some success with Robert H. Flanniken (Flaniken, Flanneken).
