Frederick M. Woolley, the efficient and popular postmaster of Boonville, was born in this town on the
19th of January, 1876; a son of Emanuel J. and Sarah (Frazier) Woolley, the former a native of Wurtemburg, Germany,
and the latter of New York. The father came to Boonville, and here became identified in the carriage and wagon
manufacturing business under the partnership style of Tanner & Woolley, which enterprise is still conducted
by E. L. Woolley. He became very successful in this line of activity, their shops for many years being ranked among
the largest in central New York. He passed away February 21, 1891, having survived his wife for twelve years, her
death occurring in 1879.
In his native town, Frederick M. Woolley was reared; and in the public schools of this community he acquired a
good education. He entered the business world in connection with his father's shops; and was therein employed until
his appointment, on the 7th of February, 1906, to the office of postmaster of Boonville, in which office he has
been continued by reappointment on the 11th of February, 1910. He is proving himself a most satisfactory official,
performing his duties in a capable and competent manner which has won the approbation of all concerned.
Mr. Woolley was married, in 1903, to Miss Nettie Grace Lee, who was born in Rome, New York; and unto them has been
born a son, Austin Frazier Woolley, whose birth occurred on the 23d of September, 1907. The parents hold membership
in the Presbyterian church, while, fraternally, Mr. Woolley belongs to Boonville Lodge, No. 165, A. F. & A.
117., and to Summit Lodge, No. 243, I. O. O. F. Hem has an interesting military record, having served for nine
months during the Spanish-American war, and acted as corporal of Company K, the Two Hundred and Second Regiment
at Gua najay, Cuba. He is now a member of the Spanish War Veterans. He has always been prominent in republican
circles in Oneida county, doing all in his power to further the interests of that party in the community in which
he resides, and from 1901 until 1906 served as supervisor of Boonville. The subject of this sketch has ever been
known as a reliable citizen and trustworthy official; while in every relation of life his substantial qualities
are such as have won him the confidence and regard of those with whom he has been associated.
