Capt. Daniel Hooker

Written by Richard Patchin

As of this writing, Capt. Daniel Hooker’s headstone is the oldest existing marker in the Alhambra cemetery (1856) after the area became an official cemetery in 1854. However, there is some evidence of burials on this site as early as 1851.

Captain Daniel Hooker was born in 1791 in Vermont. We know that his wife’s name was Catherine Hall. They had one son, James Monroe, who was born on March 27, 1833 in Clymer, Chautauqua, New York.

Captain Daniel Hooker died in San Ramon, CA from heart issues on January 28, 1856.
