Gilbert Woolsey was born 28 December 1785 in Greene County, Tennessee, United States to Thomas Woolsey (1760-1797) and Phoebe Gilbert (1763-1835) and died 14 April 1864 Atchison County, Missouri, United States of unspecified causes. He married Abigail Mackey Woolsey (1788-1852) 11 December 1804 in Greene County, Tennessee, United States. He married Hephzibah Wall (1806-1888) 18 September 1853 in Livingston County, Missouri, United States.

Gilbert was born and grew up in Greene County, Tennessee. [1] He lost his father at the age of 12 but shortly thereafter gained a stepfather; Giles Parman (1758-1832). Gilbert must have gotten along with his stepfather as he named one of his own children Giles. By the mid 1830s we find in him Carroll County, Missouri where in 1838 we see he was buying land in Livingston County, Missouri, moving there by the next year. The people of Livingston County, Missouri must have thought Gilbert to be of good character as he served as presiding judge of the county court there for the better part of 4 years. In 1848 he moved to Atchison County, Missouri, where he died 16 years later.

Since he is listed in 1812 and 1830 in Greene County, I have decided there is no proof and listed all his children as born in Greene County. - Will
