Friends of Historic Woolsey Lovingly Remembers Gerald B. Woolsey (1937 – 2022)

Please join us in celebrating the life of Gerald Bruce Woolsey (August 16, 1937  –  December 16, 2022). Born in Brooks, Georgia, he was the son of the late Charles Russell and Helen Clive Hardy Woolsey. Gerald was a dedicated genealogist, lover of reading and books especially southern authors, and stamp collector, as well as a founding ex-officio board member of Friends of Historic Woolsey. We will greatly miss his wisdom, knowledge, and dedication to everything Fayette County, Brooks, and Woolsey, Georgia. No matter what questions about the Woolsey family we had, we could always call Gerald, and he would have the answer.  We will miss his wisdom, insight, knowledge, and dedication, but most of all we will miss his friendship.
