Hello: I am a happy married female and have been doing research for over 30 yrs. I live in Preston County, WV now where I was raised. I have posted a lot of queries and info on Ancestry regarding my endeavors to find all my WOLFE, STONE, KETTERMAN, RILEY AND BOLYARD RELATIVE & all peripheral lines associated with them. Family was important to me since I ONLY HAD ONE SIDE to trace, I never knew my real father and this sparked my interest in tracing my roots, I found my 10 1/2 siblings and multiple nieces and nephews about 20 years ago. I used to live in the Eastern panhandle and have been as far north as Maine taking pictures and far south as Louisiana/Texas meeting my family. Far west as California visiting cou
Hi, Donna! Hope you had Merry Christmas and are enjoying the New Year, too, so far. Looks like you are hearing from your Wolfe kin, from the messages left here. On memorial 44802849, that you created (and I maintain now), there are 3 images of the stone... they have always been on it, but if you ever have an extra bit of time, could you possibly remove two of them? No hurry, at all, of course! Best to you and yours, will wave a sunbeam your way.
Deaker My name is dorothy Gaston,my ggrandfather Patrick O'Toole was married to Anna Marie Deaker in Preston county WV in 1877. Her father was Henry Deaker. My ggrandparents left WV and I found them in Omaha Nebraska in 1882 where my granmother Mary Estella was born and later in 1886 her sister Margaret was born. The story handed down to me by my Mom was that they left Nebraska for a "drier climate" for Anna's health. They made their way to Bigfoot tx where she died. My mother tried to find her grave but was unable,however, I have recently been successful and have located it. I will be placing a tombstone there shortly. Would love to hear more about "our" family. I can be reached at email@example.com. or thru ancestry.com
My ancestor Simon Wolf who stayed here in Germany, is the younger brother of Jacob Wolf the Elder . I am working on a book about the Wolf family, also like your cousin Icia Wolfe. I have many informations about my german family lines und about the other later Wolf emigrant lines from Oberauerbach in Germany and their relatives.
I have the family back until to Wendel Wolf born about 1580 in Germany. He was our first Wolf ancestor
I am looking for informations about the sons of Jacob. His son Johann Jacob born 20. März 1731 and daughter Eleonore born 12. Jul 1734,( First wife of George Coffield/ Kauffeld) were born in Oberauerbach , Palatine ,Germany
I know that Jacob died 1779 and Augustin 1782 I suppose that they might have died in War because they had been to young but don t know where.
There is a story that Martin Whetzel,brother to Mountain Jakes wife Eva Christina, was captured by indians together with his Cousin John Wolf. John was burned by these indians and Martin escaped later.
I think this John might have been a grandson of Jacob the elder, perhaps an brother to Mountain Jake.
But he coudn t have been a cousin to Martin , I think this is an wrong information and he was a cousin to Martins wife Mary Coffield/Kauffelt.
Can you please ask your cousin Icia if she knows more .
Wolfe Line From researching the Wolfe line does John Jacob Wolfe 1754 "Mountain Jake" sound like a name you would know he married Christina Wetzel 1759 they moved from the Stoney Creek section of Shenandoah County to the Wetzel settlement in what is now Preston County WV any information would help
Thanks. No worries Donna, I understand. Two others also posted a memorial for her. Thanks for the offer to transfer any of my ancestors too. I already started ones for my two direct ancestors buried there Nicholas and Mary Borgman.
Keep up the helpful work of posting cemeteries! I've already been helped by people like you who have been doing such great work!
Mary Cecelia Borgman Hello regarding your memorial Memorial# 127922556 for my cousin, Mary Cecelia Borgman, she is very much alive and well. I just visited with her in April. She is living in the house her father built. If you could please remove the memorial it'd be appreciated. Eric Borgman
