Isaac And Sarah Woolf
A family of merchants
Isaac Woolf (1782–1870) ran a dry goods business here during the 1820s and 1830s. His wife, Sarah Woolf (1792–1869), a daughter of Rachel and Solomon Moses, had a business of her own, a King Street clothing store. As her mother had done, Sarah Woolf held the status of feme sole, or sole trader. Besides her shop, Mrs. Woolf also owned rental property, a two-story brick building further south on King Street, near Market Street. She bought that property in 1833 from Isaac Barrett for $2500, and made the final payment on the mortgage within a year.
