He certainly lived a 'fruitful' life.  From a small area near the VA/WV border, he worked the railroad, unlike his coal mining father.  Married to two different women at the same time - one in WV, one in Nebraska.  I was of the Nebraska woman (Fereby Turner).  Things must have been interesting when he uprooted Fereby & brought her & the 10 kids back to WV.  Fereby disappears - no record of death.  The other mother dies, too (she had about 7 kids).  He marries a third woman (couple more kids), and finally a fourth (more kids).  All in all I believe 22.  He died in Washington state.  I was from Fereby's 6th child, Cythia (yes, no "N") Tennessee Woosley, born in Nebraska.

Hi there     My name is Craig Woosley and iam 2nd cousins 4x removed from Benjamin F. Woosley    He was quite a man,  he pretty much single handley populated the U.S. with Woosleys.    There is so many little clans of Woosleys across America to thank him for. I spend most of my free time trying to add Woosleys to Wikitree. Wish there was more of us working on it.    Ive entered alot of Tennessee Woosleys on here mostley from Bedford Co. Tn.     If you would like to chat just shoot me a txt or msg me thru WikiTree       Craig
