Onslow Marshall HOOD
Ardenia Alice CORBIN
Mary Catherine RIGGINS
Husband:  Onslow Marshall "Low" HOOD
Birth:  7 Jul 1836, McMinnville, Warren Co., TN
Death:  19 Nov 1916, Ballinger, Runnels Co., TX
Disposition:  buried McDowell Cemetery, Bell Co., TX
Occupation:  farmer
Military Service:  Civil War:  Pvt., Co. E, 15th Texas Cavalry
Father:  Joseph Churchill Strong HOOD (1812-1853)
Mother:  Mary "Polly" WEIR (1813-1864)
Marriage-1:  by 1866
Wife-1:  Ardenia Alice / Ardena Allice CORBIN
Birth:  1843/4 or 19/29 Nov 1845, Carroll Co., MS
Death:  27 Feb 1884
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  William Blaine CORBIN
Mother:  Jane SANDERS

Most secondary sources show her middle name as "Adaline," but I have found no primary record giving her that name.  Based on the 1870 census, her middle name appears to be Alice.

Marriage-2:  1895/6
Wife-2:  Mary Catherine RIGGINS
Birth:  16 Jan/Oct 1851, AR
Occupation:  homemaker
Other Spouse:  m1. Dixon / Dickson CARROLL, b. 1816/7, NC; d. 19 Jul 1892
Other Children (born in AR):   Ezra CARROLL, b. Jun 1883; Elza CARROLL, b. May 1888; Sarah CARROLL, b. Oct 1889; Ernest "Jack" CARROLL, b. Apr 1892
Father:  Andrew Jackson RIGGINS, b. 1830/1, TN
Mother:  Sarah Caroline JONES, b. 1826/7, AL
Children with Ardenia CORBIN born in Bell Co., TX:
1.  [Druscilla? "Dru" Emma] Emma Lou HOOD, b. 17 Dec 1866
2.  Samuel "Sammy" HOOD, b. 1869; d. by 1880
3.  Onslow Marshall HOOD, Jr., b. 1 Jan 1871; d. 1 Mar 1959
4.  Eula HOOD, b. 12 Jul 1873
5.  Lora Dea HOOD, b. 26 Nov 1875; d. by 1880
6.  Joseph Benefield HOOD, b. 1878/9
7.  [Sarah?] "Sadie" HOOD, b. 28 Oct 1879; d. by 1880
8.  [Matilda?] Mettie Beatrice HOOD, b. 27 Apr 1883

Emma is said to be "Drue Emma."  Is Drue a misspelling of Dru, the nickname for Druscilla?  And is "Lou" in the 1870 census the enumerator's mis-hearing of Dru?  Or is Drue someone else's mis-reading of Lou?

Allice should be 26, not 23 (because she's 16 in 1860 and 36 in 1880).

Onslow was born in 1836, not 1846; but his age, as given, is correct.  The father of the CARROLL children was born in NC.  Sarah and Ernest should also have been listed as stepchildren.

Sarah appears to be Mary's child from her prior marriage, although her age is wrong.  Who is Jack?  Is he Ernest?  The father of Mary's children was born in NC, although it is wrong in 1900, too.

7.  1920 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  not found (not Onslow or Mary).
