death of the father in 1910 and the the death of the mother in 1952...

From Gospel Messenger December 6, 1952

Wolf, Barbara E. Daughter of John H and Almira Sellers was born Sept. 3,
1863 at Bourbon, Ind. And died Oct. 31, 1952 in a Minot, N. Dak. Nursing
home. She was united in marriage with Elder David Wolf, who preceded
her in death. Surviving are six daughters, one son, forty-two
grandchildren and a number of great grandchildren. The funeral service
was conducted in the Thompson-Lawson funeral home, Minot, N. Dak. By the
undersigned. Interment was in the Surrey Church of the Brethren
cemetery. -- Ralph W. Anderson, Surrey, N. Dak.

From The Gospel Messenger -- October 29, 1910

Wolf, Bro. David Wesley, born near Chili, Miami County, Ind. Aug. 16,
1865, died Aug. 17, 1910, at his home near Granville, N. Dak., in the
bounds of the White Rock congregation, N. Dak., aged 45 years and l day.
He had a siege of typhoid fever during the month of July. The fever led
to a general inflammation of the organs of his body which finally caused
his death. He was anointed July 18 by Eld. J. E. Joseph, assisted by
the writer. He was married Aug 29, 1885. He was the father of seven
daughters and one son. He is survived by his wife, eight children, two
sisters and two brothers. In the Barron congregation, Wisc., he was
elected to the ministry, July, 1908 and the following year was advanced
to the second degree at the same place. He lived a consistent Christian
life. He had recently moved to the White Rock church, N. Dak. And we
had hoped he would impart new life to the cause, but the Lord willed
otherwise and "His will be done." Services by Eld. J. E. Joseph in the
White Rock church. Interment in the cemetery near by. Joseph D. Reish,
Mount Morris, Ill.

A Winona Wolf who died in ND at age 22 in 1922 may have been a daughter
