I find 3 Hoods buried in Dresden Twsp - Northeast Iowa Garden of Memories. The timing looks right.
HOOD, Isabella, b: 1822, d: 26 May 1893, m: unknown Hood
HOOD, Martha, b: 31 May 1838, d: 12 Apr 1876 (Notes say that the '8' in 1838 could be another number)
HOOD, Unknown male, b: 1804, d: 06 Oct 1885, m: Isabella Hood

Also in the Iowa Cemeteries database I found:
Name: Moses M. Hood
Birth Date: 1803
Death Date: 17 Jul 1881
Cemetery: Cottonville
Town: Cottonville

I have no idea where Cottonville is.

Unfortunately, my Marriage is sorted by bride's name, so I had to just scan the pages looking for Hood grooms.
HOOD, Moses m: JONES, Amy, 03 Nov 1897, Book 05-290
HOOD, Jennie m: BURMEISTER, Albert, 13 Mar 1881, Book 03-039
HOOD, Mary A., m: PARTRIDGE, Martin C. 31 Jan 1873, Book 02-132
HOOD, Sarah, m: HOOD, John, 24 Jan 1875, Book 02-302

I hope this helps somehow!
