About two miles east of the village of Tivoli is an old dilapidated house in which David Wool (a colored man) his wife and children live. On Monday morning Mrs. Wool stepped out of doors to cut some wood and when entering the house on returning she fell dead. Investigation by citizens proved the family had suffered intensely for the past year. The man has been ill most of the time and unable to work while his wife has been ill part of the time. A babe four months old was found without a particle of clothing to hide its nakedness, while the remainder of the family presented a horrid sight.


1800census records show the Wool, Cross/Crost and Nehr families as persons of color. 1850
