Richard Woolaver's wife Sarah (Nee McNitt -she was a widow, maiden Lindsey).Sarah Lindsey McNitt Woolaver had four children by her previous marriageto James McNittby the names of
(1)Lucretta McNitt (b. 15 Sep 1817b. Ellisburg NY -- d. 12 Dec 1904 Morristown, Rice Co Minnesota) married John Denny/Deney/Denney/Dany. (2)Sylvestor McNitt (b. 27 Aug 1822b.

(4)James R McNitt(b. 23 Feb 1827 in Ellisburg NY-- d. 15 Oct 1868.MarriedDia Donna Jackson.
Then the following children ofSarah Lindsey McNitt &Richard Woolaver: (this is the only information I have on these children) (3) isonWoolaver (b.NY) (4) David Woolaver (b.NY) (5) Nancy Woolaver(b. 1831NY)married HENRY SMITH (6) Amina Woolaver (b.1835NY) marr(1) JACOB KAMPF (2)JAMES MANAHAN (7) Giles Woolaver (b. 1837) marriedELIZA GOODSON (8) Sarah Woolaver(b. 1840)married (1) JOHN H. SMITH (2) WILLIAM ROSENTHAL (9) Celesta Woolaver (b. 1843)
Plus the information I have on Richard Woolaver isthat he also lived in Dundee, Kane Co Illinois before coming to Minnesota.I show a birth date around 1798/1799 New York and that he died in 1885 age 87.
I just recently found out that the Woolaver's were in the cloth business (??). After emailing my cousin she informed me she has some heirlooms that were passed down to her of the woolens (but she was informed that our grtgrtgrt- grandmother Sarah Lindsey had woven the items). What my cousin and I are searching for is the exact time James McNitt (sarah's 1st husband) died and when and where she remarried and exactly what children were James's and Richard's.We're finding some strange entries on the census's.We are also curiousabout any connections with our Denny Lines.Our Deney/Denny/Denney/Dany (spelt all four or more ways in census's).
Is anyone related to this line ? Many thanks... Janice
