9.Woolman- Burlington, NJ, his grandson, John Woolman, in 1743 refused to draw up a bill of sale for a slave. He devoted his life convincing other Quakers that slavery was wrong. In 1746 he visited each Quaker slave holder in PA., convincing them it was wrong to have slaves, then he went to the Quaker families in the South to convince them, in 1760 or 1772 the Quakers banned slave ownership. This John Woolman was nephew of Georgia's ancestor, Mary Woolman Hunt.
