Margaret Melzin(a) "Maggie" Carroll, wife of Joseph William Wolfe, is my great-great-grandmother on my mother's side. She was born in Pennsylvania on November 12, 1846, to Jane Barr and Lewis Huffman Carroll. In 1850, the family was living in West Elizabeth, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, so perhaps Maggie was born there.
In 1860 the family is living in Carroll (post office Monongahela) in Washington County, Pennsylvania, and Maggie now has a little brother, Harvey Louis "Harry", born in 1858. On October 31, 1868, Maggie married Civil War veteran Joseph William Wolfe.
Over the next 20 years, Joseph and Maggie had eight children: Emma M. [Camp], James Shannon, Louis Henry (my great-grandfather), Margaret "Maggie" [Yohe], Myrtle Jenny (who died in infancy), Abram Cecil, Albert Allen, and Irma Linda. Joseph, Maggie, and Emma were living with Maggie's parents in 1870, but from 1880 on they lived in Monongahela in Washington County, Pennsylvania.
Maggie died December 3, 1911, and is buried in Monongahela Cemetery.
