Edexey L. Woolcott was born in Cazenovia, Madison county, N. Y., Dec. 18, 1809, and was united in marriage with George W. Johnson, Feb. 6, 1829, and in the spring of 1838 they came to Steuben county, and settled on land that had been entered by her husband two years before, and where she died May 28, 1901, aged 91 years, 5 months and 10 days. She had resided 63 years on the farm.

Eight children were born to this union, three sons and five daughters, five of whom with the husband preceded the deceased to the great unknown.
