Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 9, 1885

Madison Weekly Courier newspaper, Madison, IN
Wednesday 11 March 1885; Page 7, Column 5

Hanged Himself
By telephone to The Courier

Mr. Peter Wolff, who resided on Doe Run, above Brooksburg, hung himself in an out house on his farm, between 10 and 11 o'clock to-day.

He was about sixty-five years of age, a widower, but left quite a large family, all of whom are grown.The reason assigned for the deed was that he had been in bad health for some years and was the result of temporary insanity.

He owned the farm and was in good circumstances. Several years ago he threatened to drown himself, but no one thought he meant it seriously.
