Wolf I sent you an email asking about John Wolf, son of George Wolf and have not had a reply. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I believe John Wolf may have been my great-great grandfather and am looking for information to confirm that. Thank you.
Anna Rockwell, update? OK, I've now downloaded the picture of her gravestone, enlarged it, enhanced it, and had several friends who are better at deciphering this sort of thing look at it. I now am leaning toward Anna's date of birth as 1774 being incorrect. Hear gravestone appears to read something like, Anna daughter of James & Hannah Rockwell Died (month) 1837
Aged 36 y
So I now am beginning to think that she died in 1837 at 36 years of age, making her year of birth 1801, well within the childbearing years of mother Hannah. What are your thoughts?
James & Hannah Rockwell Thank you for the reply. My fifth great grandfather was their son Jonathan. I have several questions, and I greatly appreciate any information you're able to provide. First, I have a question about Hannah's maiden name. I've seen both Burt and Bennett listed. Is one a previous married name? I'm also wondering about Anna Rockwell. With her year of birth being 1774, Hannah would have been only eleven years old and highly unlikely to bear a child. I wonder even more about her actually being their daughter because none of their other children were born until more than ten years later, when Hannah would have been at a more likely childbearing age. Can you provide any information on this? Many thanks in advance, cousin!
James & Hannah Rockwell Thank you for maintaining memorials for my 6th great-grandparents. Are you related? I ask because I'm running into some obstacles getting their children documented in my research. Please feel free to reply here or to email@example.com
I'm researching my Schuyler ancestors - many of them are buried in Edenton Cemetery - most ended up in Clermont or Hamilton, Ohio from New Jersey. Periodically I find a reference to the Wolfes, but I haven't yet fully figured out the connection. Were they intermarried more than once, and if so, how? Can you shed any light? I'm confused....
