Message from fellow researcher:

Passmore W. Hoopes, Sr., was born April 19, 1840, in West Goshen Township, Chester County, Pa. He was a son of Lewis
P. and Mary H. Hoopes. He attended Pennsylvania State College and was a member of the class of 1862. He went to
Laurel to take charge of the farms of the late Hugh E. Steele, and later located on the old Scattergood farm, in East Bradford. Afterwards the family came to West Chester, where Mr. Hoopes became superintendent of Marshall Square, continuing in that position nearly 14 years, and retiring when he was unable to perform its duties. During the Civil War he enlisted in Company A., 1st Pennsylvania Reserves, and served on the staff of General McCall as guard, and also as provost guard at Fredericksburg. He was in the battles of Gaines Mill and Antietam, and was taken prisoner at Bethesda Church and served in Libby and Andersonville prisons for six months, until July 21, 1864. Fifty years after the war he and a former comrade, Sobescus Cromleigh, of Parkesburg, Pa., were sent by the United States Government to Andersonville as Chester County
guests of honor at ceremonies on the old scene of their former privations.
