I do not any more on the family together. I lost the trail of James and Sidney.

I did find James S. Wools (a minister) married to Nancy A. (age 44, b. in IN) with a son M.B.? in the 1870 Jefferson Co., Ky (Louisville 5-wd) Census, pg. 509b. I also found a record of James S. Wools marriage to Nancy A. Bottorff in Clark Co., IN on October 6, 1851. If this is the same James Wools, then Sidney probably died shortly after the 1850 census.

I was able to trace Temple:

1870 Meade Co. (Courthouse Dist.) KY Census for Templeton Wools & family
1880 Goliad Co.(ED 63) TX Census for T.G. Wools & family
1900 Uvalde Co. TX Census for Temple G. Woolls & family
1910 Kerrville Co. TX Census for Temple & Fanny
1920 Cotulla Co., TX Census for Fannie (Woolls) Guinn & family; Temple G. living with Fannie

1910, 1920 & 1930 LaSalle Co., TX Census for Frank Harris & family.

1900 Medina Co. TX Census for James L. Woolls & family
1910; 1920 & 1930 Medina Co. Census for Ella P (Lacy) Woolls and family members

I also got information off the TexGenWeb Project Archives.

Both James S. and Temple G. are listed as ministers. I plan to send away to the M.E. Church for information.

Here is what I have based on the above sources:

Temple G. Woolls; b. Feb. 1838 in KY; married:
Nettie A. (Sale?)*; b. Sept. 1845 in KY; their children:
James L. Woolls; b. Dec. 1864 in KY; d. before 1910
Henrietta Woolls; b. July 1868 in IN; d. before 1880
Frank Harris Woolls; b. Oct. 3, 1877 in TX
Fannie Woolls; b. Dec. 1878 in TX

*if Nettie is Nettie Sale her parents are Anthony Wayne Sale; b. abt 1815 in Louisville KY and Henrietta Selby Woolls; b. abt 1821 in DE. Nettie is also listed as Nancy. I have no proof . . . so it is just a guess that the Nettie who married Temple was Nettie Sale. The dates, birth states, and placing them both in Louisville is all I have so far.

James L. Woolls married Ella P. Lacy; b. Nov 1871 in TX(daughter of Earl Washington Lacy and Jennie Bissett); James' and Ella's children:
Laura E.; b. May 1892 in Medina Co., TX
Jennie E.; b. Aug. 1893 " "
Nettie Temple; b. Sept. 1894 " "
Helen Lucile; b. July 1896 " "
Selby Olin; b. July 4, 1897 " " (my grandfather)
Newell Frank; b. July 1898 " "
Otha M.; b. 1901 " "
Gladys C.; b. 1902 " "

Frank Harris Woolls married Sarah "Sallie" Sanders (b. abt 1878 in AL); their children:
Frank Harris; b. abt 1903 in TX
Temple Asa; b. abt. 1907 in TX
Mollie; b. abt 1909 in TX
Francis; b. abt 1915 in TX
Sanders Bartow; b. Nov. 7, 1917
Sarah Ethel; b. abt 1921

Fannie Woolls married John P. Guinn (b. abt 1917 in TX); I think they only had one son: John P. Jr. (b. abt. 1918)

I have nothing about the Gwathmey's but what I have learned from online family trees.
Thanks for your help.
