I am searching for any information about my ancestors of Mollie Wolf(e) who was supposedly born in Iola, but there is no birth certificate on record. My grandfather told of Mollie, his mother, being of Native American heritage and it has been lost since my Papa's passing. I have traced her family to Bible Grove, but can find no proof. Their names are Lewis Allen Wolf and Leonard Wolf. Please please please, if you have any information about these folk, or any information about any Native American families that lived in the area, please let me know. I've been searching for 3 years now with no end in sight.
The only story I remember from my Grandfather, Herschel Monroe, Jr., is that of his grandfather, I think Lewis Allen Wolf, standing beneath a giant tree in their back yard in Fairfield, IL and speaking to the spirits for days on end.
And I know that Herschel Monroe Sr, and Mollie's second husband, a Scoville, both committed suicide on Xmas eve in the living room of their Fairfield house.
