WOLF

From Ohio also came MARGARET BURKETT WOLF, who was not exactly of the immediate family of HENRY BURKETT, the Burr Oak settler, but who was closely related. MARGARET BURKETT, the wife of GIDEON Wolf, was born in Perry County, Ohio, October 5, 1827. She was married in 1849, and she and her husband established their home, at the first, in Sandusky, Ohio. In this home were born three of their children. They removed to Rochester, Indiana, from Sandusky in 1853, and resided there nearly two years. Subsequently, they came to the vicinity of Leiters Ford to live. This was the old homestead and in it were born the majority of their children.

GIDEON WOLF was a veterinarian. He passed away, February 11, 1885, on the sixty-first anniversary of his birth. His wife survived him eighteen years. Her death occurred May 23, 1903, at which time she was seventy-five.

The old family home of the WOLFs in Culver was at the lake-side, very close to the water on what used to be known Wolf island. The "island" which today is an island no longer, as at the east end of Mill Street. The grove there used to be frequently the scene of picnics.
