Biography of T. J. Wooldridge

There is no biography of T. J. Wooldridge in the National Archives. Below is my biography.

   In the 1860 Census, T. J. was 19 years old and living with his parents in Richmond. His father, D. S., was a 69 year old merchant and an officer of the Clover Hill Railroad Company (and probably of the Clover Hill Mines, too). Father had $9,000 Real Estate and $30,000 Personal Estate (including slaves). The Wooldridge name was common in Virginia, with one man (a Thomas J.) being a doctor in Hanover County and another rising to Lieut. Col. in a cavalry regiment.
   Nothing has been found about T. J., except what is in the documents below.
