HISTORY: The Woosley's possible George may have run a stage stop in Crawford County. The following info found by Patty Macsisak:
"The stage then appears to have continued southward in Crawford County on Arkansas 220 to Arkansas 59 and the next known stop at Cedarville. An intermediary stop is also listed by Stinson but not by Ensminger at "Dosley's". "This 'Dosley' stop in Crawford County is variously referred to in other research as "Woosley" and "Oosley" and some have maintained that it is appropriately Woolem's and was in Winslow - backtracking into Washington County." http://www.mornews.com/pdfarchive/2002/June/16/6-16-02%20A10.pdf
"Woolsey's--Actually the Signal Hill Station. The station's log home still stands on property owned by Mrs. C. C. Collier a few miles west of the city of Winslow, AR. Down Signal Hill, and on to Van Buren, where the stage crossed the Arkansas River on a flat boat (ferry began in 1860), about 5 or 6 miles east of Fort Smith." http://www.ku.edu/heritage/trails/bsroute.html
Signal Hill Station, located on the old Collier-Yoes farm, was the next stop, and probably the highest point on the Boston Mountain section of the run. The route then headed south to Van Buren. http://www.readthewest.com/veldabrothertonOCT2001.html

Milton LEVERING

HISTORY: Morrow County, Ohio
Milton LAVERING, farmer; P. O. Levering ; lives on the old homestead purchased by his father in 1810, and he still holds the original land-warrant, signed by James Madison, who was then President. He is the youngest son of William and Ruth (Bryson) Lavering, born 16 February 1821, on his present farm. His father in company with the Rev. John Cook and John Ackerman came on horseback to this township from Bedford County, Pennsylvania in 1810; he entered 160 acres of land here, and, soon after, by his brother, 160 acres more in Congress Twp. They all soon returned to Pennsylvania; he, made a second visit to this State and remained five months, and made a small clearing, returning to Pennsylvania; he this time loaded the four horse wagon with his family and household goods, reaching his destination in November of 1816; he moved into a cabin which his nephews had prepared for the family; there were nine children in the family, seven sons and two daughters-Archibald, Allen, Morgan, Morris, Nelson, David, Nancy, Milton and Polly. Archibald and Allen died when young. William Lavering was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and departed this life 14 September 1864. Milton Lavering has been a tiller of the soil all his life; he began with $92 at the age of 21, and in 1864 he purchased the home place consisting of 160 acres of land, lying on the north branch of Owl Creek, with about fifty, acres of fine bottom land. He married Mary Rinehart 24 April 1860. She is a daughter of Jacob and Lydia Rinehart. In her father's family there were nine children: Ellen, Caroline, Charles, Elizabeth, Mary and Jacob and three who died in youth, Lydia, Anna and an infant; they were natives of Pennsylvania, and came here in an early day. Mr. Lavering and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, at Waterford. He raised the first crop of flax for the seed ever sown in the vicinity. This was in 1845, and sold at eighty-seven and a half cents per bushel. In early days his father made trips to the lake with a barrel of maple sugar on the hind wheels of the wagon. They have a family of two children, Adda M. and Zantha R., the two eldest: Morgan and Walter B. are dead. The old brick residence was built about 1823, and is perhaps the oldest brick house in the township.
