From Bill Fawcett's book:
MARY GOULDING HOOFF (FAWCETT) was born on December 1, 1853 at 212 S. Fairfax Street in Alexandria, Virginia to James Wallace Hooff and Jannett Brown. Mary was baptized at St. Paul's Episcopal Church on February 5, 1854 (Lemons 1980:64). She married Edward S. Fawcett at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Alexandria, Virginia on October 21, 1875. Edward Fawcett died on Marsh 21, 1901 in Alexandria. His widow and son (Laurence) continued to live in their home (517 Prince). As a member of the Chancel Chapter of St. Paul’s, Mary kept and maintained the communion silver and also prepared the communion bread (Kaye 1984). In 1907 she found a "Blue Boy" postage stamp on the marriage proposal written by her father, J. Wallace Hooff, to her mother, Jannett Brown, in 1846. It sold for the record amount of $300 (Kaye 1984). Mary Fawcett was still living with her children at 517 Prince Street, Alexandria, Virginia at the time of the 1920 census (ED 2, sheet 4, line 8). Mary (Fawcett) died on February 20, 1925 in the Emergency Hospital, Washington, D.C. (Blum and Blum 1958).
