Luther Woolsey Sr. was born 1798 to David Woolsey (c1764-c1855) and Rebecca Thompson (1772-1837) and died 1842 of unspecified causes. He married Keturah Tucker Bloomer (c1798) . Notable ancestors include Charlemagne (747-814), Alfred the Great (849-899), Hugh Capet (c940-996), Rurik (c832-879), Henry II of England (1133-1189), William I of England (1027-1087). Ancestors are from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Spain, Portugal, England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Scotland, Ireland, Hungary, Belarus, Denmark, Italy, Turkey, the Byzantine Empire, Sweden.

There is some discussion on Luther's parentage. I have used information done by by Charlie Black, Wilford Whitaker and Molly Lamb who have worked hard on documenting a number of the Woolsey lines. This information can be found here - [1]. On the other hand is : Ancestry of William Addams Reitwiesner who has his parents as Henry Woolsey m. Sarah Ann Woolsey.
