NotesEdit

From Upton's History of the Western Reserve

- Rev Henry Woolsey was a pioneer of the Western Reserve. He and his wife located to Lake County, OH before 1828. His only daughter, Abigail, and her husband, Rumsey Reeve, joined them there after 1828.

- He was a Methodist preacher and is described in Upton's History of the Western Reserve as: "... A man of firm and impressive nature, even in those days when strong characters came to the front. He was a preacher of power and eloquence, earnest and persuasive, and of such compelling enthusiasm that he would carry his congregation into such intensity of emotions that many would fall to the floor in the excess of their religious frenzy."

- His son Benjamin appears to have also resided in Willoughby, Lake County, OH, as he donated the land on which Willoughby High School was built. The land was to be used perpetually for school purposes only.[1]

- There is a "Henry Woolsey" listed for the 1820, and 1830 US Census for Cuyhoga County, Ohio. "Henry Woolsey" is also listed for the 1840 US Census for Lake County, Ohio.

- Willoughby Township was part of Cuyahoga County, Ohio until 1840 when it became part of Lake County, Ohio.
