Theressa Wooley was born on 23 May 1800 in New York State or perhaps Vermont. She died on 14 May 1882 in New Fane,
Niagara County, New York; she is buried in the Budd Cemetery in Cambria, Niagara County, New York, next to her daughter Alvira and son-in-law, Alanson Burns. She married Torry D. Winslow perhaps in 1815, perhaps later, he was born in Saint Albans, Franklin, Vermont. If she was his 2nd wife. Their eldest child, Cornelia M. Winslow was born on 14 May 1816 in New York State, perhaps in Madrid, St. Lawrence County, New York. It's entirely possible that Theressa was not the mother of Cornelia; that
Torry was married to someone else as his first wife, and Theressa is his 2nd wife. Some of the other Winslow/Wooley researchers that both Torry and Theressa
were married twice.

So Wooley may not even be the correct maiden name for Theressa.
