There are a couple of us working on the theory that their Cooley's are my Woolley/Wooley's.
I have a James Atkinson?/Aitchesnon? married to a Hannah Alvertta Woolley, sister of George Herbert Woolley b 1854, my great-grandfather.George's father was Thomas Woolley m in Shelby Co., OH; Rhoda Dorsey b 1826.Hannah was the daughter of Thomas.
I hadn't been able to locate a thing on my Atkinson/?
Another Hannah Woolley m Charles Dorsey.My lineage goes back to Edward III, King of England in 1322.
I would help all I could to find my Woolley/Wooley/etc lineage.I have pages of surnames my mother told me were related;but, some of those I have found and still searching as they were only surnames and a few things in my family partial Bible.
If interested in more, I'll share for info too.I've been told I would be a canidate for DAR on many of my direct lines on both sides of my parents.
