Birth: May 2, 1844
Arkansas, USA
Death: Mar. 3, 1911
Travis County
Texas, USA

James M. Wolf Jr., was born May 2, 1844 in AR as a son of James M. Wolf Sr. and his wife Ann Jane McFelch and thus became a descendant of the famous Wolf fmaily of Norfork, AR. It is thought that his father died soon after his birth. His mother remarried about 1846 to Richard Erwin Adams and had started a new family by 1850 AR census. This Adams family went to Texas soon after that 1850 census and James Wolf Jr. went with them and is found in their household in Parker Co., TX for the 1860 census. This census only listed initials for the first name of the people and the surname was spelled with the added "e" and thus this person was not connected to his Wolf ancestors until sometime in the 2004.

James M. Wolf Jr. enlisted in the Confederate Army in Parker County, Texas on May 3, 1862. He was in Company A, 21st Regiment, of the Texas Volunteer Infantry, Col. William H. Griffins Battalion. This particular unit served throughout Texas and were at the Battle of Galveston and at the Battle of Sabine Pass.

After the war he must have returned to AR where he married Mildred Finley and they must have gone back to TX as their first child is shown as born in TX. On that 1870 AR census James M. Wolf age 26 with wife Mildred age 25 and daughter Martha age 2 born in TX are living back in AR.

The basis for much of the Wolf family history were the notes made by Warren Wolf in early 1930s. It has been proven that Warran Wolf did mistakendly use inforamtion for James Wolf Sr and incorporated it with facts for James Wolf Jr. which caused the descendants of James M. Wolf Jr be be unknown to other family members for many years. So it was really James Wolf Jr. who was the grocer in Austin in 1907 and the one who at that time had three sons, Maxmillian, Joseph, and George. Thus that person was the Major's grandson instead of his son as published in the Wolf section of Leona Adams's book on the Adams Family which was the only other published source of information about James M. Wolf Sr. It was included in that publication because after the death of James M. Wolf Sr, his widow remarried into the Adams family.

James and Mildred's oldest daughter, Martha, was born in Texas in 1868 according to census records. All of the rest of their children were born in AR beginning with Mittie Maud (Wolf) Milam in 1871. So they were in the Baxter/ Izard Counties, AR area between 1870-1887, when they returned to Texas and more specifically, Austin, Texas.

Since I do not have ownership of Mildred's memorial her children have NOT been linked to her but all of the children listed as children of James M. Wolf Jr. as are also children of Mildred Finley Wolf.

James and Mildred are buried together in the Oakwood Cemetary along with two of their daughters and two grand-daughters (the children of their oldest son, William M. "Willie" Wolf). William and his wife Ora (Peace) Wolf are buried together in the Oakwood Annex.
