1.  RICHARD WOOLAVER was born in New York  state about 1800.  On the
1825 state census he was in Ellisburg with unnamed wife and no children.  
On the 1830 federal census he and his wife have a daughter over 10, one 
between 5 and 10 and two sons under 5.  We believe that his first wife died 
and he married SALLY LINDSEY before 1830.  
On the 1840 census STEPHEN LINDSEY was living with them.  About 1844 Richard 
and his family moved to Dundee, Kane county, Illinois.  They lived there until 
about 1862 when they moved to Morristown, Rice County, Minnesota.  Richard died 
in 1885.  We think that Nancy and the later children are Sally's.

He married ?before 1830

SALLY LINDSEY, daughter of STEPHEN LINDSEY and widow of  JAMES
MCNITT.  She died December l, 1883.
