J.C. Hood
J.C. Hood was born Sept. 12, 1916, in Granbury, one of four children to the late Edwin S. and Lela Kate Heathington Hood. He graduated from Granbury High Scool and attended North Texas Agricultural College (now called UTA), Texas Wesleyan University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He married Cleo Lovell Clary in 1939 and she preceded him in death in 1990 after 51 years of marriage.
J.C. was ordained to ministry at First Baptist Church in Granbury in 1947. He worked at the post office in Granbury and pastored churches in Bennett, Thorp Spring Baptist Mission (where he built the old white church building which still stands), First Baptist Church of Acton and Bowles Memorial Baptist Church in Grand Prairie, from 1958 to 1963. J.C. also worked for Claude Harris, who was the founder of the Girls Ranch in Breckenridge, where he obtained funds for the start up of the home. He later became the administrator of the home. The Girls Ranch was later given to Buckner Orphans Home and was moved to Lubbock two years later. After retiring from the minstry, J.C. worked for the Texas Department of Public Welfare for 15 years, five years in Arlington and 10 years in Mineral Wells.
