Forget Me Not: Frederick Wolf, 1891 PA

These two newspaper notices tell us of the illness and death of Frederick Wolf, the "oldest citizen of Abbottsville." He was 87 years old.

Note: the first notice was published 30 Oct. I believe he had died before that was published. I need to double check my source.

Mr. Frederick Wolf, the oldest citizen of Abbottsville, is critically ill.
