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
