Bible Records from Lloyd Wolfe’s Family History
Lloyd Wolfe was the youngest child of Henry Harrison Wolfe and Sarah Doran. Lloyd writes about his father and Sarah Doran in Henry Harrison Wolfe's Family History. He finished writing this in the early1970’s after which he sent a copy to Helen Lonski who was living in West Seattle at that time. He and his sister Vida Gray had compiled a shorter family history in 1956.
I, Lloyd McKinley Wolfe, being the oldest of the remaining male descendants of our father, H.H. Wolfe, have been asked to supply a pedigree chart, as correctly as I can possible to do so, from all available records in my possession. These records come from the family bible, letters from relatives and the mouths of my parents and other members of the family with which I may have visited during my childhood.
My story starts with father’s family bible and the first entry, the marriage certificate of Henry Harrison Wolfe and Sarah Elizabeth Doran, signed by the minister performing the ceremony on February 7, 1876 at Duncannon. This prized volume bears father’s hand written inscription family bible of Henry H. Wolfe and wife Sarah Elizabeth Wolfe, Kansas pioneers, Long Island township, Phillips county, Kansas.” It has been handed down from our mother to the remaining oldest member of the family with one exception. My sister Ella had it until it reached my hands.
My father was married and had a small family prior to this marriage. I will record what information I have about my half siblings and their families.
