Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - Augustus Woolley
Augustus Woolley of Long Branch, son of the late Mary and John Woolley, was found dead in bed on Tuesday morning of last
week. He had been doctoring for heart disease for several weeks, but his death came very unexpectedly. He was sixty years
old and had spent his entire life at Long Branch. For many years he was leader of the choir of the West Long Branch
Methodist church. He was at one time a traveling salesman for Devlin & Co., New York clothiers, his territory covering
the New England states. From early life it had been his practice to pray and read a portion of scriptures on retiring at
night. When found dead he had his glasses on and a hymn book that lay beside him was opened to the hymn, "Lift up your
heads in prayer". Mr. Woolley is survived by a sister, Mrs. James Greig of Mount Vernon, New York.
