Link to Distant Cousins
Last friday morning Tucker Woolley, of Long Branch, died after an illness of several months. He was 78 years old, and was widely and favorably known. His heart was ever light and merry, despite the cares and anxieties of life, and though he was well advanced in years, he was ever in the vanguard on occassions of merry-making. in the winter of 1885-6 he rigged up a sort of toboggan chute of his hill near Long Branch, and while the snow lasted, the place was a scene of gay revelry. In tobogganing, however, he met with an accident that laid him up for some time, and which has undoubtedly hastened his death. His funeral was held on Monday afternoon at St. Luke's church, Long Branch.
