William Woollen and Mary Whitely had a son, Jacob Woollen born in Dorchester Co., MD. Jacob is my g-g-g-g-gf. I think Jacob died in Dorchester Co., MD, but I have no exact record of his death date or cemetery. Do you?
Jacob married Nancy Corkran about whom I know nothing.

Mary Whitely was a daughter of Solomon Whitely and Hope. I do not know Hope's maiden name, so her ancestry is lost to me. I know nothing about Solomon Whitely's birth, marriage, and death dates and places, and I do not know his parents or lineage. Can anyone offer proof of any of this needed info? Their families were probably in Dorchester Co., Md., but I know nothing about any reference sites or assistance with this county.

Jacob Woolen and Nancy Corkran ahd a daughter, Jane Woolen b. 6 Oct 1820 who married Robert Henry Whitely born 27 Aug 1815 in Caroline co., Md. I have his whole line. Robert and Jane moved to Indiana after marrying in Md. on 12 Jan 1837. They lived in Henry Co., IN where I was born. Robert farmed and was a Quaker. Jane's brother, William Robinson Woolen, visited Robert and Jane in IN, and eventually settled himself in Indiana where he farmed, married, and raised a family in a northern county. I have attended a Whitely reunion on a farm near where Wm. Robinson Woolen settled as his descendants included actor, James Dean of Hollywood and Indiana.

Robert H. Whitely and Jane Woolen Whitely are both buried in a Quaker Cemtery in Spiceland, a small town with Quaker pioneer roots in Henry Co., Indiana.

Help would be greatly appreciated.
