From Bill Fawcett's book:
JAMES WALLACE HOOFF was born on February 21, 1825 in Alexandria, Virginia. For many years he worked as a clerk in the Quartermaster Office of the War Department (12/1/1861-11/1/1915) in Washington, DC. He lived with his daughter, Mary and her husband, Edward Stabler Fawcett, in their home on Prince Street in Alexandria. From 1865 until his death, J.W. Hooff served as a vestryman at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. At the time of his death he was also senior warden. The children of J.W. Hooff and Jannett Brown include: Rev. Douglass Hooff (rector of All Saint's Church, Frederick MD by 1915), Mary G. Hoof (who married Edward S. Fawcett), and Mrs. B.L. Wallace (who lived in Dobbs Ferry NY in 1915). James W. Hooff died at 5 a.m. on November 30, 1915 at his daughter's home (Mrs. Mary G. Fawcett, 517 Prince) in Alexandria, Virginia (Lemons 1980:62; Alexandria Star 11/30/1915).
