Paula: I have the exact dates of marriages of the Wolfe children if you need these. There are some errors in what you have above. George, according to the 1850 census was b. in Pa. not Tenn. He married Rebecca Simpson ca. 1804 and Thomas was b. in Tenn not Ohio. These older children were all married by Rev. Purvience of New Paris. except Calvin who married the first time in Knox Co. Tenn.

I know that Rebeccas headstone says that she was b. in 1778 but this is impossible. She could not have had a child at the age of 56 (Rebecca b. 1834 in Ohio). There is a lot of confusion on the census records for this family. I accept the earliest census records I found which are that Calvin, Thomas, George, Catherine, Sarah, and Thirza were all b. Tenn and Levi, Rebecca and Elitha Pirtle were b. in Ohio.

Eva was probably the daughter of Thomas though you didn't say her age. I will look it up.
