DANIEL C. WOLF resides about
three miles from Entiat on a farm, which he gained partly by homestead
right and partly by purchase from the railroad company. A fine large
barn, beautiful residence and other improvements adorn the farm and Mr.
Wolf is occupied with fruit raising and general farming. He is a
man of stability and has shown himself deeply interested in the affairs
of the community and the progress of the country.
Daniel C. Wolf was born on August 4, 1866,
in Fort Seneca, Seneca county, Ohio, being the son of Daniel and Ann M.
(Baker) Wolf, natives of Tiffin, Ohio. The father served in the One
Hundred and Eightieth Ohio Infantry in the Civil War. The paternal
ancestors came from Pennsylvania. Our subject has two brothers and
three sisters: William, living on the Entiat; Leslie, in Ohio; Frances,
wife of R. Osborne, in Ohio; Annie, wife of James Bear, in Ohio; and Lottie,
living at home. From the public schools of the Buckeye state, Mr.
Wolf gained his education and remained with his father until 1886, when
he journeyed to Colorado and took up farming. Two years were spent
in that state, after which he came to Whatcom, Washington. He spent
some time on the sound and in other portions of this state and in 1898
located on his present place.
At Whatcom, in 1892, Mr. Wolf married Miss
Emma, daughter of Joseph and Mary (Carlsyskin) Houck. She came with
her parents from Wisconsin in 1890, and her father follows carpentering
on the sound, living in Tacoma. To Mr. and Mrs. Wolf the following
children have been born: Hazel Bell, aged ten; Kay R., aged eight;
Dorris Juanita, aged seven; Alta Mabel, aged six; Alma Rignetta, aged four;
Theodore Clinton, aged two.
Fraternally Mr. Wolf is connected with the
A. O. U. W., the M. W. A. and Order of Washington. He is a Democrat
and holds the offices of school director and road supervisor.
