I was interested to see whether the Wolfsons from Boston are related to my family, per your prior question in another thread. It does not appear so. It looks like your Wolfsons were from Kovno.
There is a passport application from a Henry Wolfson, made in 1898, who appears to be one and the same with Harry Wolfson, brother of your Paul Wolfson. He married a woman named Sadie and moved to New York. Also, their father was Samuel B. Wolfson. Mother appears to be Elizabeth C. Wolfson, per obituary index and census records. It appears Samuel B. Wolfson remarried to an Ida. The family is related to SIMMONS, SAUNDERS, and SUPERIOR per Census and obituary index on JewishGen.
Of interest, I found the following information in a publication called HARVARD COLLEGE, CLASS OF 1911: DECENNIAL REPORT (p. 465-6).
SAMUEL LIONEL WOLFSON
Born at Boston, Mass., Nov. 11, 1887.
Parents: Samuel B. Wolfson, Celia B. Cotton.
School: English High School, Boston, Mass.
Degrees: A. B. 1911 (1910). LL. B. (Boston Univ.) 1913.
Married: Bessie R. Freedman, Chelsea, Mass., June 3, 1915.
Children: Bertram Sumner, March 19, 1916; David Paul, May 12, 1920.
Address: (Home) 105 Homestead St., Roxbury, Mass.
(Bus.) 40 Court St., Boston, Mass.
Upon being admitted to Massachusetts Bar in 1913 I went
into practice for myself and have conducted law offices in
Boston for general practice since. I spend all my spare time with my family, being the average much-married man whose time is divided between his office and his home. During the war I became connected with Local Board No. 5, Boston, since the Chemical Warfare Service refused me owing to being slightly under weight, and worked gratis for two years upon one of the largest Draft Boards in New England.
Member: New Century Club, Boston.
Note: I think this Samuel L. Wolfson is the same as James Wolfson listed in the 1900 Census.
