Birth: Feb. 19, 1857
Death: Aug. 2, 1894

J. E. Wolf
Husband of (1) Sally P. Keeling Wolf & (2) Dora Peel Wolf
Son of Charles S. Wolf & Martha Clinkscale Wolf

February 19, 1857--August 2, 1894

Dr. W. H. H. Lackey wrote a newspaper article datelined IUKA, AR., AUG. 2, 1894, about J. E. "Ed" Wolf's untimely death. The clipping has been preserved and copied. The newspaper's name is not included, but it was probably The Baxter County Citizen, Mountain Home. One paragraph from the article follows:
J. E. Wolf hitched up his team to haul rock to wall up a cellar. After pulling till about 10 o'clock he took out his team and got on one of horses, intending as is supposed to take the team to water. The horse became frightened and threw him off. His foot hung in one of the chains and the horse ran about 300 yards dragging his body over logs and rocks, killing him instantly. His left arm was broken in two places, his neck and back were broken, the right leg was broken, all of the ribs on the right side, in fact nearly every bone in the body was broken.

After his death his daughter Martha was found in the household of Abb Keeling, probably a brother to his first wife. She grew up in the same area that she was born and married Bishop Pierce Harris with many descendants in Baxter County. Martha and her husband and several of their children are buried in the Harris Cemetery in Baxter County.

The son, James Alexander Wolf also grew up in the area where he remained till he married. Later he moved to Ok and TX and finally settled in Oregon where he died and is buried.
