Bio Photo 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

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 dotmg233@hotmail.com. or thru ancestry.com

Wolf famy
Donna ,

I saw your message for Dustin Wolfe.

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 .

Best wishes
Thomas

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

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!

Re: Mary BELL PRATT
You provided an obituary for her that gives her name as "Mary Bell Pratt" but her headstone says "May Bell Pratt". The obit gives her husband as William L. Pratt, which seems to go with the link I already have, but in a previous message you gave the name of "Ella Funk Bolyard" as William L. Pratt's wife - in the obit "Ella Funk Bolyard" is listed as Mary (or May's) mother. Just want clarification to make sure this info is for this memorial.
