Story taken from the Tomah Journal dated 15 May 1903, p. 4, column 3:

Frank and Lon McNutt, John Wallworth and Ed Messner captured six young wolves Tuesday, for which they will receive a bounty of $48. Wallworth and Mesner had been out wolf hunting Monday and found the animals so plentiful that they became frightened and fled taking their guns with them.

With reinforcements, however, they were more successful. There are plenty of wolves left for those who are anxious to try their luck.

Unofficial biography of John Wallworth:

John was the son of Charles and Elnora Jane McNutt Wallworth and he was born in what was then known as the Mormon Settlement in Jackson County, Wisconsin.

John spent his entire childhood in the wilderness of Jackson County and he married his first wife, Evelyn Sarah Ogle, and had two sons, Homer Glen and Charles Nelson, with Evelyn. Ten days after giving birth to Charles, Sarah died from complications of childbirth.

John worked for a dredging company in Wisconsin building dykes for the cranberry marshes in Jackson County and he left Jackson County for good (with the exception of a short period) after the death of his wife Evelyn.

John worked in the Matagorda County, Texas, area for several years after leaving Wisconsin building dykes and levee systems for the rice industry of the county. Here he met his second wife, Avis Patterson, and they married 16 September 1914 in Blessing, Matagorda County, Texas.

After John and Avis married, they spent a short time in Jackson County with John's sons, Homer and Charley. After returning to the Matagorda County, Texas, Avis contracted the flu in 1918 and died shortly thereafter.

After Avis' death, John moved to Stuttgart, Arkansas, where his brother was involved in the rice industry. John remained in the Stuttgart area for the remainder of his life. Here he met his third wife, Cora Markham, and they had the following children: Jimmie, Jean Ann, John, and Jerry.
