In Reply to: James Wooley NJ 1749-1813 by William Collins of 1722

William -
Here's some info for comparison that was taken mainly from Stillwell's "Historical and Genealogical Miscellany: Data Relating to the Settlement and Settlers of New York and New Jersey (in 5 Vol's)", [Author John E. Stillwell, M. D., (first published NY, 1903; reprinted by the Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1970). The Woolley family is listed in Vol. 5; typical listing details are:
Vol. 5, Pg. 449: "#113 James Woolley, [son of Stephen and Ruth (Tucker) Woolley, of Shrewsbury,] born Oct. 7, 1749; married, first, Abigail Middleton, second, Huldah Skirm."
Vol. 5, Pg. 460: "#113 JAMES WOOLLEY, son of Stephen Woolley, #72, born Aug. 7, 1749 died Feb. 7, 1813; married, first, Dec. 13, 1770, Abigail, daughter of Thomas and Patience (Tilton) Middleton, born July 23, 1749; died June 6, 1775; second, Dec. 18, 1776, Huldah, daughter of Abraham and Elizabeth (Fowler) Skirm, born July 31, 1756; died Oct. 29, 1825."


James Woolley, of Chesterfield & Nottingham (Stephen 5, Emmanuel 4, William 3, Emmanuel 2, Edward 1) was born 07 Aug 1749 probably in Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., NJ, (a second source lists his birth as 07 Oct 1749, probably Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., NJ). James died 07 Feb 1813 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ. He married (1) Abigail Middleton, of Nottingham 13 Dec 1770 in Chesterfield, Burlington Co., NJ, daughter of Thomas Middleton and Patience Tilton. She was born 23 Jul 1749 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ, and died 06 Jun 1775 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ. He married (2) Huldah Skirm, of Nottingham 18 Dec 1776 in the home of her parents Abraham and Elizabeth (Fowler) Skirm (probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ). She was born 31 Jul 1756 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ, and died 29 Oct 1825 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ.

Children of James Woolley and Abigail Middleton are:
i. George7 Woolley, born 21 Oct 1771 probably in Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., NJ; died 05 Feb 1836.
ii. Sarah Woolley, born 12 May 1773 probably in Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., NJ.
iii. Gideon Woolley, born 17 May 1775 probably in Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., NJ; died 05 Feb 1836.
Note: in regard to #2 George Woolley and #4 Gideon - I question whether the brothers both do in deed have the same death the dates; but then which one is in error?

Children of James Woolley and Huldah Skirm are:
iv. Elizabeth7 Woolley, born 30 Jan 1778 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ; died 01 Oct 1849.
v. Samuel Woolley, born 17 Sep 1779 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ.
vi. Hannah Woolley, born 01 Aug 1781 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ; died 09 Jul 1783 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ.
vii. Deborah Woolley, born 30 Sep 1783 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ; died 06 Oct 1784 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ.
viii. Mary Woolley, born 13 Apr 1785 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ. She married Isaac Thorn, Jr., 08 Jan 1807 probably in Monmouth Co., NJ; born 05 Apr 1786; died 16 Jul 1841.
ix. John Woolley, born 04 May 1787 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ.
x. Ann Woolley, born 28 May 1789 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ; died 19 Mar 1859. She married Jonathan Pettit 09 Jan 1812.
xi. Huldah Woolley, born 10 May 1791 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ; died 17 Feb 1869. She married Isaac Thorn 09 Sep 1818 probably in Monmouth Co., NJ.
xii. Charlotte Woolley, born 15 Oct 1793 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ.
xiii. Edna Thorn Woolley, born 31 Jul 1796 probably in Nottingham, Burlington Co., NJ. She married Joseph Knight 09 Mar 1814 probably in Monmouth Co., NJ.


I don't have much on the 2nd generation:

ii. Sarah Woolley (James 6, Stephen 5, Emmanuel 4, William 3, Emmanuel 2, Edward 1) was born 12 May 1773 probably in Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., NJ. She married Hugh Jackson 03 Sep 1799 probably in Monmouth Co., NJ.

Children of Sarah Woolley and Hugh Jackson are:
i. Edna Jackson.
ii. Abigail Jackson.
