Re: 1903 Bio. ~ John S. Woolson ~ born Tonawanda, Erie County, New York

Robin,

I just this past week saw a letter written in 1855 from John S. Woolson of Tonawanda to John Horace Woolson of Lewiston. This must be your John. John Horace is my Gr-Gr-Grandfather. Your John must have been about 15 and my John was about 19. They went to school together at Wilson, NY.

I copied the letter for my collection. Would you like a copy of it? It's not extremely lengthy and I could post it here, or send via email.

Also, I would like to know more about your John's family. I once saw Theron Woolson's Will at the Niagara County Courthouse, but didn't copy anything from it, since he wasn't part of my direct Woolson branch. I believe Theron was John's father?

I wonder if by any chance you or your cousin has the corresponding letter written by my John to your John? Or anything that might further connect the two branches of the family?
