1919: The following article appeared in the Kopp column of the Journal Messenger in Manassas, VA on November 28, 1919.

Excitement reigned in the neighborhood on a recent Sunday afternoon when Capt. I.C. LeBoutiller, R.A.F., lighted with his airplane in Mr. Thos. Woolfenden's field. In a few moments automobiles, horseback riders and walkers could be seen coming from every direction, the crowd consisting of preachers, teachers, merchants, farmers and mechanics.

Capt. LeBoutiller and E.M. Stouffacher, his mechanic, enlisted in the Canadian forces when the war broke out and went across to England, where they completed their aviation course. When the American forces were sent over they then joined the Americans and fought with them until the armistice was signed. After soaring at a height of 22,000 feet they are said to have brought down two Hun planes, made prisoners of the occupants and returned to their lines in safety. Capt. LeBoutiller receiving only a slight wound.

The aviators spent the night with Mr. Thos. Woolfenden and left about eight o'clock for North Carolina, where the plance will be delivered to a person who purchased it at the close of the war.

1920: The enumerator of the Coles district of Prince William County for the 1920 U.S. Census was Thomas J. Woolfenden, Jr.

1942: The Herndon Observer ran an ad on November 26, 1942, announcing a public sale of assests on the farm of Thomas J. and Bertha Woolfenden at Kopp, VA. This was due to the taking of 50,000 acres by the Navy Department for the rapid expansion of the Quantico Marine Corps Base after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on Dec 7, 1941.

Thomas and Nannie lived their remaining years at 214 Fairview, Manassas, Virginia.
