I've been looking but I haven't yet come across that particular woolison in our history...I'm interested in our family history though, and if you like we could exchange a little of our respective family trees.

You said that you have done a lot of research in Berks Co. on the Woolison surname. Do you have any information as to who the parents of Joshua Woliston would be? According to an 1814 bible, I have Joshua Woliston (varied spellings) born 3 Sep 1794 in Reading, Berks Co, PA. The bible indicates that his father was Samuel. Joshua married Maria Elizabeth Nunnemaker 15 Apr 1819 and her father was Philip Nunnemaker.

I realize that the name you mention is Woolison but I am wondering if it is possible that they are of the same family. Would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!

Regarding the parents of Joshua Woliston. Yes, I do have that information. His father was Samuel Wollison and mother Maria Hohmann. Samuel's parents were Joseph Wollison and Mrs. Rachel Thomas. Joseph's parents were Samuel Woolleson and Gobitha Powel. This is where I am stumped. I do have Gobitha's parents and birth; however, I am hung up on Samuel. They were married in or around Chester County, PA in or around 1722.
The Wollison name appears as: Wollaston, Woliston, Wollison etc with the number of o's and l's and the t varying. I am inclined to believe that the original name was probably Woolaston. If you would like more info, please email me directly. Margaret

The Wollison family in Berks County began with Samuel Wollison (b. about 1695) and Gobitha Powel(b. 1695). He had two sons, Samuel and Joseph. Samuel died leaving no issue; however Joseph had several sons: Samuel b. 1762 had children born 1784 to 1796 but no Reubin. The other sons were: Joseph b 1763, John b. 1765, George b. 1767, Evan b. 1769 and William b. 1771. One of these sons are very likely the father of Reubin. Happy to share info.
