This is a photo of my great-uncle Clagett Foster Hook (1896-1979) in his WWI soldier uniform. He was a member of the A.E.F., a precursor to the Army military unit of today. He was born in Capon Bridge to a family who had been grist millers for generations. He moved to Bartonsville with his family in 1909 and worked in the flour mill prior to WWI. After the war, he moved to Berks County, Pennsylvania to operate a  farm. When he died, his body was transported by train to Winchester and interred in Mt. Hebron Cemetery.
