Born in Maryland in 1779 he married Susanna Biers and established a home in Pa., 75 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. In 1809 he moved to Ohio to the section entering the land on which the Cambridge Country club is now located. The entire journey from his Pittsburgh home to the very threshold of his cabin here was made by water. William Frazier Hooks was one of the few settlers to enter Guernsey County by boat. Floating down the Allegheny, he entered the Ohio River at Pittsburgh; thence to Marietta and up the Muskingum River to Wills Creek; thence up that stream to the place he had chosen for a home. Although a small man with a stiff leg, he did a prodigious amount of work, assisting in building the old covered bridge at the Wills Creek crossing. Julian Hooks, a daughter, married John Callihan, and some of their descendants are now living in Guernsey County. William Frazier Hooks and wife are buried in the old cemetery at Cambridge. 1820 Census: 2 males under 10; 2 males 10-16; 1 male 26-45; 3 females under 10; i female 26-45.1,3 He was buried on 6 October 1848 at Old Cambridge Baptist Cemetery, Cambridge, Guernsey, Ohio.3 William F Hooks Find-a-Grave.com ID # 21705914.
