I am looking for any info on the WOLFF family found on 1870 Yell Co. Census. ADELINE WOLFF is listed at 20 years of age and the head of the household. Siblings listed as Ann, Newton, Michael, and Jane are listed living with her. I believe these to be the children of HENRY and NANCY DODD WOLF found on 1860 Scott Co., Ar. Census. The parents possibly died during the Civil War years. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
