|Marilynn Smith||RE: Wolfes|
I'm not sure if I ever answered your message from June 2015. I've learned a little more about the Wolfe family, and I spent yesterday in Brownwood, TX, asking questions!
Louisa and William Wolfe's daughter Harriet (1854-1880 maybe) is my great-great-grandmother, but she lived a short life, it seems, and I don't think her grave is marked. She is listed in the 1860 and 1870 censuses. Her husband, William Pendleton Hoskins, died in Nov 1880 (after the census was taken) and is buried in Board Branch Cemetery in northeast Llano County, TX, near Lone Grove. In the census, his occupation was listed as "consumption" which might have been tuberculosis. I have his will, written in Oct that year, in which he asks to be buried next to his wife, so it's clear she died at some time before that census was taken. I've found his gravestone, but I can't tell if Harriet is buried next to him. I also can't find Harriet's father's death records or his gravesite. He, too, has to have died sometime before the 1880 census was taken since Louisa moved to Byrd's Store in Brown County to live with a daughter and others until her death.
We may never be able to fill in the blanks! But it would be great to find out!
Glad to help, Andy. I am no relation to the Seagoes. I am trying to connect all the Blanco County, Texas families listed in Moursund's BLANCO COUNTY FAMILIES FOR 100 YEARS. Thomas Seagoe appears in the book but I couldn't connect anyone in his family to other Blanco County pioneers. In the process of trying, I came up with a lot of information. I have uploaded this to RootsWeb.com. You can access it at http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=unrelatedblanco&id=I419
All my sources are listed.

Beth was my former husband's grandmother. When I knew her she lived in Muskpgee, Oklahoma. She died in 1985 and is buried in Muskogee. She had one son, Charles William Porter who was my husband's (Daniel William Porter) father.
Hi, again, Andy,
William and Louisa Wolfe's daughter Harriet, was my gg-grandmother. She married William P Hoskins in 1867, and they had two sons, Charles and Marshall. Charles was one of my paternal great-grandfathers.
I can find the Wolfes in Llano County, TX, from the early 1850s to before 1880. William and Louisa Wolfe are clearly there in the 1860 and 1870 censuses, but by the time the 1880 census was taken William, Louisa, and Harriet didn't seem to be around.
Are you on Ancestry? If you are, please find me: MarilynnRSmith and I can send you an "invite" for the tree I've been working on for a couple of decades and more!

I'm fascinated about your Findagrave entry for William Sexton Wolfe. He was my 3x great-grandfather and Louisa my 3x great-grandmother (obviously!). I've been hunting for information about them for several years. If there is a photo of their grave markers or of the cemetery's entrance, it would be wonderful to see them.
Thank you again for posting this information.

Thank you for your efforts in attempting to photograph the headstone. Your efforts are much appreciated.

Thanx again for looking for me. Dont worry about it. It was just IF you go back.
I am actually in Los Angeles, but dont have a car and cant get very far these days. I can probably get a ride at some point.
I do have relatives in the Austin area though. My grandmother was born there and there are lots of Collins people still there. There is even a street named after her father Dee Gabriel Collins.
I went there in 2003 for a family reunion on Collins and Ruckers. It seems like a nice area.

Thanks for trying. I seem to recall some kind of scandal linked to this cemetary a few years back. But I cant remember exactly what it was.
If you happen to go back to that cemetary, could you please take a picture of the plot where the headstone would have been? A few others have done that for me in the past. Dont go out of your way, that is IF you happen to go back.
Thanks so much for putting forth the effort. I have been trying to find that out for years. Now I know.
