Notes for W
ILLIAM MELTON WOOLDRIDGE:
William "Bill" Melton Wooldridge was born in Stokes, North Carolina, the eldest son of the eight children of Josiah Wooldridge and Martha "Patsy" Cantrell. His father served during the War of 1812 near the time of his 1813 birth. By 1820 the Wooldridge family had moved to Henry County, Kentucky. They moved again to Warren County, Tennessee, probably with William's maternal grandparents Aaron Cantrell and Mary Elizabeth Smith, before 1830.

In the late 1830's William's father, Josiah Wooldridge, was charged with "riot" along with two of his sons. Perhaps, as the eldest of the four Wooldridge sons, William was included in this incident. The procecuting attorney was William's maternal uncle Smith Cantrell.

In 1840 William's family were living in Davidson County, Tennessee. It was near this time that William Wooldridge married Mary Jane Heal, daughter of Harrison O. T. Heal. Mary Jane was said to be Creek Indian. William's father died before 1850 and the Wooldridge family settled in Smithville, DeKalb County, Tennessee. William and Mary Jane became parents of 14 children between 1844 to 1873, 13 of the children survived to adulthood. William's mother lived with family members in DeKalb County by 1850 and was listed in the 1870 census at the age of 82 with William, Mary Jane and their large family.

William M. Wooldridge was superintendent of the poor house in DeKalb County, Tennessee for more than 20 years and was listed in the 1860 and 1880 census as "Overseer of Poor house" and "Keeper of the Poor." He was also a farmer raising a large family in Smithville.

Occupation: Bet. 1860 - 1880, Ran the Poorhouse in Smithville, DeKalb, TN

Notes for M
ARY JANE HEAL:
According to family stories, Mary Jane Heal was Creek Indian. According to Rosa Lee Grissom, one of her granddaughters, she told her children never to admit to being Indian. This could explain why it has been so difficult to track her parents down, or for that matter to get a true family name.

Various versions of Mary Jane's last name are given in several sources including: Heal, Heald, Heath, Hutt and Herald. There are no other families by any of these surnames living in DeKalb Co. TN at the same time as Mary Jane and her husband.

According to "The Wooldridge Family" by William C. Wooldridge (2002) Mary Jane's father was Harrison O. T. Heal.

DEKALB CO TENNESSEE METHODIST CHURCH...
Mary J. Wooldridge is listed as a member of the DeKalb Co. Tennessee Methodist Church in 1840.
(If this is Mary Jane Heal Wooldridge then she would've already been married at age 14 in 1840.)

Mary Jane Wooldridge moved to Collinsville, Grayson Co. Texas with two of her daughters; Etta Virginia Shores and Nancy Evelyne Grissom, sons John Harrison, Joel and William also moved to Texas.

Mary Jane Wooldridge is buried in the Collinsville Cemetery at Collinsville, Grayson Co. Texas. Her grave marker reads:
MARY J.
