      The book "Maplewood", Fairfax County, Virginia by Diane N. Rafuse states that Jeremiah Moore, grandson of the well-known preacher Jeremiah Moore, purchased 200 acres, including Strawberry Vale Manor, from Priscilla Gantt (widow of John Gantt, Jr.) in 1874. Jeremiah Moore's family owned the house until the late 1870's when it was sold to M. C. Snook. Members of the Snook family owned Strawberry Vale until 1950.

      From the book "Maplewood", Fairfax County, Virginia by Diane N. Rafuse: "It has been reported that Maplewood was a girl's boarding school. No documents have been found to support this story. However, Melvin L. Steadman, Jr. remembers adults from his childhood who attended a boarding school at Strawberry Vale Manor. Exactly who was responsible for the school remains uncertain. The Gantt family has records that Ann Beale Wilson, wife of John Francis, ran the school. When the Snook Family vacated Strawberry Vale, Mrs. Thompson, a granddaughter of the first Snook owners, found in a room of the top story of the house an 1850 map of the United States, which suggests that Jeremiah Moore could have run the school".
