Michael Wolf born in Ellsos, France, in 1837, came to America in 1852, and first settled in Hanover Township, Ashland County, Ohio, on the farm now owned by Adam Young. In 1863 he sold it and purchased the farm on which he now lives, from David Workman. The farm contains two hundred and twelve acres, and he has built on it one of the largest brick houses in the county.
When he first came to America he had to borrow ten dollars of his brother in Cleveland in order to reach Loudonville, and since that time (only about twenty-seven years), by industry and economy, has accumulated a nice fortune, and has secured for himself one of the best places in the county.
He is a member of the old Lutheran Church, in which he has been trustee for nine years, and to which he contributes largely. He married Mary Spack in Hanover Township. She was a native of Ellsos, France. Mr. Wolf is the father of eight children, all living at home. John, George, Mary, Martin, Henry, Margaret, Michael and Charlie.
