Wolf Family Reunion, 1914 OH

Sometimes when I search I put in a surname + reunion + a location where the family was centered. This has produced some interesting results. In this case I looked for the Wolf family in Pennsylvania and Ohio. I found several reports of Wolf family reunions but in looking through the people who attended, it was difficult to find those who I could be sure I was related to. This reunion report clearly says those gathering were the descendants of three brothers, Samuel, Jacob and Joseph Wolf. Hurray! They are the sons of Frederick Wolf, my 4th great uncle.

I wish some of the attendees were named. (I always want to know more!)

The Wolf Reunion


The fourteenth annual reunion of the descendents [sic] of Samuel, Jacob and Joseph Wolf was held on the College Campus in Wilmington, Saturday, August, 22, 1914. The pleasant day brought out a large number of relatives from Springfield, Blanchester, Clarksville, Waynesville, Edenton, Windsor, Kingman and Wilmington, Marion, Ind. And Port Jervis, N. Y. There seemed to be but one cloud on the hearts of those present, the remembrance of the dear ones who passes away since last we met.


The forenoon was spent in visiting and renewing acquaintances, after which all did justice to the bountiful dinner at which fried chicken was plentiful and was soon devoured by the hungry Wolfs and Fox. The afternoon was spent in music, reading, recitations, toasts and games. The janitor kindly showed us through the College and Bailey Hall.


The children enjoyed part of the day in the gymnasium. Most of us remained to enjoy a late supper after which we adjourned to meet at Fort Ancient the fourth Saturday of Aug. 1915.
