    Published by The Hoopes Family Organization, Houston, Texas, 1977-1983.

    Looks at the ancestry of, and traces the known descendants of, Daniel Hoopes, the son of Joshua Hoopes and Ann, baptized 27 May 1672 in Skelton-in-Cleveland, Yorkshire, England and died in 1749 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. He married Jane Worrilaw, daughter of Thomas Worilaw and Jean Perkes, 10 Dec 1696 in Middletown Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. They had eighteen children. Descendants and relatives lived mainly in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma and Utah. Includes Allred, Anderson, Bird, Darlington, Gifford, Johnson, Peterson, Stewart, Watkins and related families. Includes a 130-page index of names covered, in Volume 3

    The volumes were apparently owned by a related family member doing research on the Hoopes-Hoops family line. There are a number of bookmarks in each volume with genealogical information, and there is marginalia here and there throughout, mainly lines marking passages and handwritten page numbers for reference. At the top of the dedication page of Volume I is the handwritten name of "Bina Alverda Hoops Beasley" and the date Sept. 4, 1979. Perhaps the previous owner was related to her.

    The 3 volumes are in GOOD condition, there are relevant marks, lines and inserted bookmarks as noted above, the spines have some light creasing from use, otherwise just gently used and still tight, bright, clean and clear. A solid, presentable set, with an interesting provenance.

    SCARCE Complete THREE VOLUME SET.

    INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This three volume set is heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed.

Internally, the front inner hinge is cracked but holding well; the first and last few pages are foxed and are toned from offsetting and there is some light foxing to the other pages here and there throughout; some pages have light creases; and the pages have a light, old musty smell likely from storage; otherwise the pages are tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. Overall a solid, nice copy but with a light old book smell.

    About ED FLETCHER and his IMPORTANT PLACE in SAN DIEGO HISTORY:

    ******Ed Fletcher, b.1872 d.1955, was a San Diego developer, promoter, and politician.

    In 1888 Fletcher, age 15, came to San Diego alone, and with $6.10 in his pocket began selling produce. In 1901, he entered the real estate business as a land agent, and started a partnership in 1908 with William J. Gross, silent film actor and producer. That partnership developed Grossmont, Mt. Helix, and Del Mar. Fletcher donated land on Mt. Helix where Easter Sunrise services are held.

    Fletcher became interested in developing San Diego's infrastructure and saw to it that many road projects were completed in and around the City. With Fred Jackson, Fletcher raised civic interest in building a road to Imperial Valley, then a plank road across the desert to Yuma, Arizona. Fletcher was later active in having state and U.S. highways built to San Diego.

    Fletcher also took an interest in projects delivering water to San Diego, including creating Lake Hodges. Fletcher and Montana businessman James A. Murray purchased the San Diego Flume Company on June 1, 1910, renaming it the Cuyamaca Water Company. Their company made major improvements to the water system of San Diego County, including the construction of the San Vicente Dam and Reservoir. Fletcher also raised funds to buy land for the Naval Training Station in San Diego, and for building the YMCA.

    In 1934 Fletcher was elected to the California State Senate, and served until 1947. Sometime while in the Senate, he switched his party affiliation from Republican to Democratic. He authored laws creating the San Diego County Water Authority and transferring ownership of Mission Bay to the city.

    Fletcher married Mary C. Batchelder April 8, 1896 at Ayer, Massachusetts. They had ten children.****** (Ten children! There must be a lot of Fletcher descendants out and about!)
