I don't know if this relates to your Mildred Hooten or not, but I found this info in Morton's History of Preston Co.:

Benjamin Hooten was of Highland Scotch ancestry. In 1817 he moved from Fredericksburg, VA., to Philadelphia, and died there the same year. His sons John and Charles came to Preston a little prior to 1825. They first lived at Kingwood, but removed at length to Rowlesburg. The wife of Charles was of a Quaker family and lived to be 97. Her people were eminent in manufacturing. James E., their son, is an attorney of Moundsville. Albert L., an elder brother, was educated at West Point, securing entrance through Governor Johnston and John M. Mason, friends of his father. He was killed by hunting by the accidental discharge of his gun.

HOOTON: John m. Maria Calvert.

Charles, bro. to John b. 1803- d. 1873 m. Margaret Cresson of PA.

Maybe this will give you a link. Good luck!

Nancy :)
