Tales from the lighter side of family history.
My great-great-grandfather John J. Wolf and his wife Barbara immigrated to the United States about 1874. They bought a farm near Tours, Texas, where they had 11 children. Barbara died in 1892; in 1893, John married her niece Margaret, age 16. They had 14 more children. I found a newspaper article in which John said his 25th child was just as exciting as his first.
