About the Wooley surname

My grandmother's maiden name was Wooley. She married my grandfather when she was 17 - 18. Grandpa was in his 30's, I think. It was her first marriage, his second. Both lied in order to marry. She lied up, he lied down. He didn't want her father to know exactly how old he was.He had been through a divorce before he met her. After they divorced, he married a third time. His actual birthday, I'm not sure, but his name was John Edward Larcom.
