Subject: [WOOLSEY] Lyon Family and Sarah Woolsey


> To List Members:
>
> Speaking of Sarah Woolsey reminded me that I have a Sarah Woolsey (of a
later generation than the previous Sarah) who married William Lyon and they
had a family in Westchester Co, NY, including one Woolsey Lyon.
>
> There are very close connections between the Lyon/Lyons Family and the
Woolsey family in New York.
>
> There is another Woolsey Lyon, son of Benjamin Woolsey Lyon, of Greenwich,
Fairfield Co, CT and his wife Phebe.
>
> >From Vol II, Probate Records of Stamford, CT 1803-1848 of Greenwich:
>
> Lyon, Benjamin Woolsey, late of Greenwich, will dated 6 Jul 1810, probated
4 Sep 1810, mentioned his wife, Phebe, and children: Mary Husted, Sarah,
Woolsey, James, Daniel, and Thomas. Executrix his wife. Wit: Mary Banks,
Catharine Banks and Thomas Huggeford, p. 203 etc.
>
> Being in Connecticut, they may be named after Theodore Dwight Woolsey,
Pres. of Yale, but 'curiouser'.
>
> We have about 12 other very close connections to the Lyon/Woolsey
families. That would be a good avenue of research for interested family
members.
