  • Notes 
    • Isaac Woolner, "father to Rev. Jacob and Isaac Woolner, was born near Beckles, St. Andrews Township, Suffolk County, England, August 1st, 1792, and died April 8th, 1860. He was married to Sarah Hembling who was born July 11th, 1797, and died of cholera, at Bridgeport, Ontario, July 8th, 1832. In 1832 they, with their family of six children, together with William Howlett and family and James Howlett and family, emigrated to America, arriving at Hamilton, Ontario, during the third week in June. While at Hamilton they, for several days, resided in a house in which the former residents had died of cholera. Here they contracted this dreadful disease which proved fatal to so many of the small number immediately after their arrival at Mr. Peter Erb's, a little north of Bridgeport, in the evening of the 28th day of June, 1832. They came from Hamilton with Mr. Peter Erb who was there on business. No sooner were they in possession of their new home when one of their children took sick and before morning proved a victim to cholera. In less than ten days eight of the party died of the same disease. Some are buried on Dilman Moyer's farm near Bridgeport while the Howlett's are buried at Snyder's, Bloomingdale. Noah Hembling and his wife, relatives of those who came in 1831, also died of the same disease. They are buried on Mr. Moyer's farm. After the decease of the mother of the named family, the father, Isaac Woolner, was married again. His second wife was Bridget Connor, widow of Mr. Connor. There were six children of the second wife, namely: Ann, married to Samuel Rowney, Abraham, William, married to a Miss Moore, George, James, and Mary Jane, married to Joseph Carr.
