house pictured above was built c. 1875 by
John George Woolfolk and Sue Pearson Woolfolk on land given
to them by Sue Pearson's father, William Pearson. The land was
part of the 2000 acre farm William Pearson purchased c. 1865.
John and Sue's son
William Broadus Woolfolk, my grandfather, later inherited
the house and farm and with his wife Laura Laws Woolfolk raised
his own family.. William and Laura's youngest son, William Ward
Woolfolk was my father. Their daughter Gladys (Sissy) and son
James (Pete) Woolfolk lived in the house until their deaths in
1987 and 1976 respectively. The house is now owned by my
brother, Gary Woolfolk. To us, this house will always be called
the Homeplace. Hello....My Name is
Robert L Woolfolk and I live in Murfreesboro, TN. I enjoy
genealogy, woodworking, and researching the War Between the
States. You will find some genealogical information about me and
the Woolfolk family tree and my other ancestors by following the
links on the left side of this page. Other names I research
include Lanier, Donnell, Waynick, Pearson, Goodrich, Laws,
Arington, Crawford, Waller, Chewning and many more. Most of my
ancestors lived in VA, NC, and SC in the 1700's and 1800's and
in TN in the 1800's and 1900's. If you have any corrections or
additions to this information please contact me :
