|The John Woolman Memorial
Located at 99 Branch Street, Mount Holly, New Jersey, the Memorial house was built
between 1771 and 1783 and is on the site of part of John Woolman's orchard.
The purpose of the John Woolman Memorial Association is to keep alive the spirit and
memory of John Woolman and to seek those in whose lives that spirit may grow and serve.
|Welcome to "Woolman Central".
My name is Judy R. Hynes and I have been collecting information on
descendants for about twenty years now.
Volume one of the genealogy was published by the John Woolman Memorial
Association in December of 1997. I am currently working towards an eventual
second volume and welcome any and all descendant's contributions towards
including their particular lines.
Please drop me an email at Judyhynes@msn.com and we'll find out how you are
connected to the family tree!
|The two largest groups of Woolmans in the
United States, belong to either the family of
Quaker descent, immigrating to America in
1678, or of a family that descends from the
two Woolmans, Alfred and his brother,
William, who immigrated to America in 1871.
There is also a sizable family of
descendants associated with upstate
If you feel that you descend from the Quaker
line, you are in the right place!
If you feel that you descend from the

John Woolman Memorial,
Mt. Holly NJ to Wyalusing PA.
The 250th Anniversary of John Woolman’s peacemaking journey to visit the
Native American community in Wyalusing will be celebrated with a walk
along a route similar to the one that Woolman took in 1763.
John Woolman wrote of this journey’s basis,
“Love was the first motion, and then a concern arose to spend some time with
the Indians, that I might feel and understand their life and the spirit they
live in, if haply I might receive some instruction from them, or they be in any
degree helped forward by my following the leadings of truth amongst them.”
Please join us for any portion of the journey or the entire anticipated 15 days.
Woolman’s concerns for peace, the effects of war, slavery, commerce, land-
use and listening for "that of God" in one another are as critical now as they
were 250 years ago.
