It would be nice if we could find a way to rephrase the part about Woolsey being born into the wealthy, influential Dwight family. Even though people like the Dwights may be commonly known as "families," they tend to be more along the lines of what anthropolists call sublineages (a lineage is a group of people descended from a common ancestor). Usually there are wealthy and influential branches of the family, plus lots of branches that are just middle-class. I've seen some literature describe Woolsey as descended from the Dwight family.

This sentence seems worded poorly, has 'interesting' punctuation, and for some reason, a heart. I'm not sure how much of this sentence, if any, is pertinent to the subject. "The brothers and sisters were modeled on her four younger siblings: Jane Andrews Woolsey, born October 25, 1836, who married Reverend Henry Albert Yardley; Elizabeth Dwight Woolsey, born April 24, 1838, who married ♥ Daniel Coit Gilman and died in 1910.; Theodora Walton Woolsey, born September 7, 1840; and William Walton Woolsey, born July 18, 1842, who married Catherine Buckingham Convers, daughter of Charles Cleveland Convers."Jtyroler (talk) 09:03, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
