My Granduncle Thomas Wooster

 

THOMAS WOOSTER

Son of Barclay Wooster and Elizabeth Tifft.
Eighth child and third son.

 

AMANDA STUDER WOOSTER

They were married 15 April 1888 and had six children.

 

AMANDA AND THOMAS WITH THEIR CHILDREN

From left to right: George Dewey Wooster, great-grandfather of Patty Clerf; Stella Wooster Ziegler Maser; Amanda Studer Wooster, mother; Frankadell Wooster; Tom Wooster, father; Clarissa Wooster Mike Tuenge, great-grandmother of Dena Herbert; and Erma Wooster Jepsen, grandmother of Linda Troolin's husband.
Clarissa Ann had a twin Hanna who died at less than three months of age in September 1892.

 

LINDA TROOLIN WITH FERN AND VIVIAN REISH

This picture was taken in 1977.
Linda says of the picture, "I'm not sure which one was Vivian and which was Fern but they are the sisters from whom I got much Wooster information. They also let me take the pictures they had of Barclay and Elizabeth Wooster and have them copied. Sweet ladies who I never saw again after this day. It was a blazing hot summer day and they had prepared a chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy in honor of our visit. The house temperature must have been 110 with that oven going."
Of course, Fern and Vivian are not descendants of Thomas but of his sister Ellen Juliann Wooster West. Daughters of Ina Belle West, they are grandnieces of Thomas (and incidentally, my second cousins).
