From the Woollen/Woolen Family History book, page 22. David Mitchell Woollen, b1818 Rockingham Co., N.C., d1886 Rockingham Co, m1839 Namcy M. Smith, 1818-1891.Issue: Charles Wesley Woollen, 1853-1936, wed Catherine Lucinda Lewey; Samuel Thomas Woollen, 1839-1864; Wesley E. Woollen?; Lenora Amanda Woollen, 1851-1909, wed James M. Small; DELILA FRANCES WOOLLEN, 1849-1933, wed Rufus A. Carroll; Demarious Woollen (lived Quincy, Illinois, wed Mr. Brown?); Mary Eliza Woollen, 1847-1919, wed James Pinkney Smothers; Sarah Elizabeth Woollen, 1842-1860, wed James Pinkney Smothers. Has Smothers children in book. I add, my Woollen amd Malcolm families had Smothers connections also in Winston-Salem. My grandmother born 1885, who did not like blacks though never rude, always spoke oddly about our Smothers kin. I met a historian who's husband has Woollen/Smothers blood (looks totally "white", and she speaks quite openly that her husband's Confederate veteran Smothers) who after the war wed a (family?) slave. If true, I admire her forth-rightfulness. David Michell Woollen's siblings were Absolom Thomas Mase Woollen b1815, Anna Woollen, b1817, wed James Ensley Thom, and Dela Woolen who June 7, 1843, wed John Hagood or Hagenwood (no more data). Their parents were Sanuel Woollen, b1784/90 Dorchester County, Md., died 1823 Rockingham Co., N.C., wed Elizabeth (Betsy) Thompson. Samuel had 85 acres on Hogan's Creek, Rockingham Co., N.C. His parents were Lt. Leaven/Levin Woollem. Sr., of the Revolution and wife Priscilla. I think a DAR "Patriot"? Jim Miller, Southport, N.C. I thing his name was old "Ab" Woollen at Woollen's Crossroads Store, just over the Guilford County line, in Rockingham County, on Little Troublesome Creek, up-stream of Speedwell Irom Works where the Maryland Continental Line encamped after the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. At the Southern Railroad/Amtrak station at the foot of Church Street, downtown Greensboro, N.C., go up-hill northwesterly towards the county line. Many of the low, small houses about the line are really log cabins inside. Crossing the line into Rockingham County, in a mile or three, ex-Church Street "T"-ends into another crossing road at "Woolen's Crossroads".Forty years ago, had you backed-up perhaps 300 yards, out your right window near the road were two connected Woollen log cabins made of squared logs one and one half feet high and wide, no chink'n, no gaps, a solid wood wall. Surely this was un-movable virgin timber where it fell? Inside one was still cleanly whitewashed; the stairs to the low sleeping loft, behind the chimneys. I sat on the floor, surely I had Woollen ancestors conceived in those lofts;being proper Woollens--after the children went to sleep? The chimneys made by a slave skilled in them. The date in it said, I think, 1794?The same date as on the deed at the Wentworth courthouse to Leavan (grandmother always carefully pronounced it not "Lev-in", but "LEE-vann". I wondered could we have descended the Leaven family also, but on the other hand; then in both Dorchester and Rockingham Cos, "Levin" was a common first name. The Woollen families in the area, still had pioneer furniture from the cabins. They say they were lived, in up to 30 years earlier.
