Michael Egolf/Egulf/Egolff, Fulton Co., PA

Looking for information on the Micael Egulf/Egolf/Egolff who appeared in the census below. In 1880 he appears to be the second husband of Rebecca Pitman, judging from the step-children listed. Trying to find out where Michael came from and if he was married previously to a Susan Gingery. Rebecca appears to be a widow as early as 1900 when she is living with a son Daniel. I believe the obituary below is also the obit of Rebecca and Michaels grandson. Any information appreciated. Don't know when Michael died or where he might be buried.
