A Chronology of Events in the Life George Woodley, the Eldest Son of Mathias Woodley:

 

Commentary:

 

Notes:

[1] It is often erroneously reported that George was born in Muncy, Lycoming County
[2] The census record for 1820 gives for George Woodley the age >=45, in  Muncy Township, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania. The age is actually 37 and should be enumerated as under age 45. While this is assumed to be an enumeration error some believe it represents a different George Woodley.
[3] The census record for 1840 gives for George Woodley the age of 60<70, in Granger Township, Medina County, Ohio. His actual age is 57 and he should have been enumerated as 50<60.
[4] The probate of the estate of George Woodley, Sr., includes little family history, and no list of heirs.  It is mostly an inventory and a listing of the sale of his belongings.  Francis Young is the administrator on most documents but others are administered by his sons Abraham, Matthias and John.  There are also notes which appear to be first mortgages in the amounts of $990 and $1800 to the Connecticut School Fund for lot 38 in Granger, dated Jan. 11, 1844.
