Abigail Jane Woolsey (1829-1874) was born 25 July 1829 in Greene County, Tennessee, United States to Zephaniah Woolsey and died 24 September 1874 in Hamburg, Fremont County, Iowa, United States of unspecified causes. She married George Washington Lafayette Zuck (1826-1900) 26 March 1848 in Carroll County, Missouri, United States.

There seems to be a lot of speculation on Abigail's parents. Most sources I see state that her father was a Zephaniah Woolsey. My theory is that she is the daughter of Zephaniah Woolsey (1801-1847) who was the son of Nehemiah Woolsey (1774-1834). I have no proof, just a theory. - Will
