Matrilineal Monday is another blogging prompt from Geneabloggers that encourages bloggers to discuss their female ancestors – whether it be stories about a particular female ancestor, a great find, or just resources that we use to research our female ancestors (sometimes the hardest lines to trace). Rebecca (Wolf) Farver is, for me, one of those “elusive” female ancestors.
I actually have very, very little information on Rebecca Wolf, and what little I have is undocumented or comes through her husband, John Farver, and his page on findagrave.com.
Name: Rebecca Wolf
Birth: 05 May 1793
Marriage: 13 February 1812
Spouse: John Farver
The only other information that I have is contained in the notes on findagrave:
“John Farver, wife, and two children Samuel and Mary Farver migrated from the vicinity of Hagerstown, MD, to near the present village of Hayesville, Ashland Co., OH. arriving there on April 29, 1817. He settled on the west half of the NE quarter of section 2.” — Record of John and Rebecca, 1786 to 1962 compiled by William Farver, 1962.
As of this point, I have not been able to obtain a copy of the genealogy referred to in this quote, but, admittedly, it has been several years since I looked at this line and actively worked on trying to find more about Rebecca. As I was preparing to write this post, I did a quick survey of what might be out there on the internet for Rebecca, and it still appears that there is quite little available to help me track her. I have no doubt that Rebecca Wolf is going to be one of those lines that will involve a great deal of onsite courthouse research.
