In a Loudonville newspaper of Thursday, November 23, 1893:
George Peter Wolf, one of the well-known and highly respected farmers of Hanover township, living about 3 miles south of town, died on last Saturday morning at 9:30 o'clock aged 76 years, 2 months and 8 days. Deceased was born in Bavaria, Germany, on September 11, 1817. When about 18 years of age he came to America and spent about three years in Florida, when he returned to the fatherland, but later made a second journey to America and settled in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, where in the year 1840, he was married to Miss Elizabeth Meitzler. About ten years later, he and his family moved to Ashland county where they became among the foremost people of this locality. The widow and three children, two sons and one daughter, survive, three children having preceded the father to the life beyond. 'Squire Wolf was an honest, honorable and upright Christian citizen and his death is deeply deplored by his neighbors and many friends. For about two years he has been suffering with stomach trouble which finally caused his death. The funeral services were held Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock in the German Evangelical church, Rev. C. Christiansen, of Massillon, his former pastor and Rev. N.W. Weaver conducting the services. Interment in the Loudonville cemetery.
