The Wooley Family  (Friends of W.L. Brown Family)

The Wooley family were friends of Will L. Brown and his family.  Clyde and Alta Wooley and their daughter Frances all appear in the 1920 Federal census.  At that time, they were enumerated in Chautauqua County, Jamestown City, Enumeration District #149.  The 1920 census sheet containing their names is dated 09-JAN-1920 and the following ages are shown:  Clyde: 50 years, Alta 50 years and Frances 24 years.  Frances is shown as being single in the 1920 census. They are listed as being on "Lakeview Ave." and "509" is listed in the house number column. Clyde's occupation is listed as "Manager" with an "Oil Co". According to information recorded in "The Longfellow Birthday Book" which was given to Will L. Brown on 22-SEP-1884, "Alta Wooly" [sic] was born on May 13th. The year is not noted.

Clyde C. Wooley - Clyde and Alta Wooley were the parents of Frances.  They lived in Gowanda, NY and later in Jamestown, NY.   According to the logo on the photograph's '4 page', cardboard frame, this photograph was by "The Camp Art Co  Jamestown, N.Y."  In the 1880 census, the enumeration for Perrysburg shows family #78 in the enumeration sequence to be D.V. Wooly, age 40 (occupation "Farmer") and wife Anna R.,  age 30 [ Note: the wife's first name is very difficult to decipher from the handwriting in the 1880 census; her name may not be spelled exactly as "Anna"] and one child, a son, Clyde, age 10.  This information agrees with the 1920 census which shows Clyde's age as 50.
