The Children of Andrew Wolfe

The Zion church, more commonly called "Herrolds," had a record of confirmants who were confirmed and blessed on May 27, 1792, and partook of the Lord's Supper for the first time. In this record, as shown in the history of the Old Zion Church, is shown the name of John Wolff, age. Another list of confirmants under the date April 20, 1784, includes the name Anna Maria Wolff, age 17, which also agrees with her 1776 birthdate. I have included several records so you may comprehend the difficulty of the spellings, dates, etc..

  • JOHN WOLF born February 17, 1774, baptised February 9, 1778 at Herrolds church. Sponsored by Mother, Eva Crebs Wolf, wife of Andrew.
  • ELIZABETH WOLF born July 23, 1776, baptized February 9, 1778. Sponsors were Jacob Zehner and wife Catherine.
  • ANNA MARIA WOLF born 23 July 1776 (twin of Elizabeth) also baptized February 9, 1778. Sponsors were George Zehner and wife Anna Maria.
  • JOHN CHRISTIAN WOLF born February 20, 1778, baptized January 23, 1779. Sponsors were John Crebs and Sophia Sebring.

    From German Reformed and Lutheran church records, Reverend Paul M. Ruff, Volume 1 and Volume 2 on Wolff families in Westmoreland County 1772-1804, the following was taken:

  • JOHANNES WOLFF born 2/17/1774 baptized 2/9/1778
  • ELIZABETH WOLFF born 7/23/1776 baptized 2/9/1778 sponsored by Jacob Zehner

  • JACOB WOLFF born 8/16/1784 baptized 4/17/1785 sponsored by Jacob Lehner and Catherine.

    After the death of Eva Wolf around 1785, Andrew remarried, this time to Catherine (unknown surname), who was a widow with one daughter. The following children were born to Andrew and his second wife:

  • BARBARA WOLF born about 1789
