Thomas Shirley Wooters, b.02 January 1863 in Marion Co., Illinois, was s/o Noah Washington Wooters, Jr. b. 18 April 1828 in Guilford Co., North Carolina and Martha/Mary Elizabeth Phillips b. 23 March 1835 in Tennessee.
I have more information further back if this looks like your family. My late husband, Tom Wooter's line descends of Noah's marriage to Mary Emily Crane and their son Alfred Elmer Wooters (my husband's grandfather).
Also, if it is helpful, my husband's Wooters line was from around, Centralia, Raccoon Twp., Marion Co., Illinois. That might narrow down your search area.
Let me know if I can be of further help. Freda Hart-Riley
