Today in my database ; Samuel Woolston (b. August 22, 1768)

Today's featured relative in my database is my paternal 5th great-grandfather, Samuel Woolston.

Samuel was born August 22, 1768 in Burlington Co., NJ, the son of Samuel and Cyllania (Woolston) Woolston. Samuel married February 26, 1795 in Burlington Co., NJ to Hannah Haines, daughter of Robert and Rachel (Venicomb) Haines. Hannah was born January 21, 1768 in Burlington Co., NJ and died February 7, 1813 in Burlington Co., NJ. Samuel died November 3, 1813 in Burlington Co., NJ.

The above dates may not be correctly converted from Quaker dating, as members of the Woolston and Haines family were Quakers.

i. Anne Woolston m. Joshua Woolston

vi. Sarah Woolston m. William Williams
