Descendants of David Wolff

Fourth Generation


9. Jacob Sr. "Old Jake" Wolfe 1, 2, 3 (David Sr. Wolfe , Jacob Adam , David ) was born on 20 Feb 1788 in Wolfsville, Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was christened on 17 Aug 1788 in Zion Reformed Church, Hagerstown, Washington Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He died on 5 Mar 1872 in Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was buried in Reformed Cem., Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. Jacob was counted in a census in 1810 in Unk. Township, Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was counted in a census in 1820 in Unk Township, Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was counted in a census in 1830 in 11th Dist., Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was counted in a census in 1840 in 10th Dist., Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was counted in a census in 1850 in Catoctin Dist., Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A..

Assuming that the Jacob Wolf in Catoctin dist. in 1850 is this Jacob then he is identified as Jacob Sr. in 1850 and so presumably had a son Jacob Jr. A descendant (B.J. Wolf) confirms that Jacob Sr. son of David was postmaster in Catoctin dist.
There is a record in Frederick co. courthouse of a Jacob and David Wolfe purchasing land from Delauter in 1821.

Notes from files of B.J.Wolfe
Rev Benjamin Kurtz was a Circuit rider & the marriage of Samuel and Mary Wolfe was probably in Church Hill in the Lutheran Church. They were married Sept 19, 1820. The bride's name was Mary Malinda Coon (Kuhn) and she was known as Malinda. These children and birth dates were copied from a German Bible owned by Charles Wolf and dated 1828. We don't know if ths was C. W. s/o Wm & Nancy Maugans or another C. W. Wolfe.[IT:This data is attributed to Dr Alvin Wolfe of Fl and Marvin Wolfe as told to Larry Orth at a 1988 family reunion:IT]
[BO: Have Gravesite Photo.:BO]

Many of the notes in the following sections are from the Pedigree Resource File of Yvonne Wyrick. (YW) She is RIN 147 in the file ("Yvonne"), (identified because the details appear of her eldest son who died.)

Samuel Wolf 1798, first appears on census in 1830 (two households away from David Wolf) which would fit with his marriage in 1820. Presumably living in his fathers (David's) household prior to this. A second Samuel appears in1840, 1850 and 1860 (could this be Samuel 1811-1892 son of Jacob). I am not sure which Samuel in 1860 (Frederick or Emmetsburg) is which Samuel.
There are no more Samuels in Frederick co. census after 1860. And indeed that would fit with the death of Samuel 1798 in 1861.
AP.

  34 M xvi Daniel Wolf 1, 2 was born on 20 Sep 1854 in Wolfsville, Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A..

This Daniel would not seem to fit as Daniel 1832 has a marriage record.

15. David Wolfe Jr. 1, 2, 3 (David Sr. Wolfe , Jacob Adam , David ) was born in 1812 in Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He died in 1860. David was counted in a census in 1840 in 10th Dist., Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was counted in a census in 1850 in 10th Dist., Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A.. He was counted in a census in 1860 in Hauvers Dist., Frederick Co., Maryland, U.S.A..

It would be usual that David would be the eldest boy (named for his father) however an older David may have died. This would match the missing children on 1800 census. This David was apparently the Inn Keeper and operated the Hauver Tavern, Foxville, Frederick co. - later the Tom Fox Store.[according to Dr. Bowman who gave much information to Leah Spade.]
I could not find any IGI records of children of this family. A second David first appears on census in 1840 and 1850, (David Sr. had died by 1845). If David Sr. on 1860 census is David 1812 then he had a child David Jr. who appears in 1860. AP
Dates 1812 -1860 are found in Names in Stone.
1820 census one child under 10 in household of David Wolfe Sr.

David married 2 Catharina Hauver (Haber) 1 on 19 Oct 1832 in Washington, Maryland, U.S.A..

They had the following children:

  35 M i David Wolfe (III) was born estimated 1834.

This David Jr. is conjecture based upon census records.
This could be the first David Summersit Wolf.
