Notes for Ira Gerald Wolfe and Clara Verlillia Brenizer

Before 1885: See the personal notes for Ira Wolfe and Clara Brenizer for events prior to their marriage in 1885 in Kansas. Clara Brenizer left Union City, Ohio for Kansas with the Washington Lafayette Eichelberger family in 1881 [1]. Ira Wolfe left Adams County, Pennsylvania for Kansas in about 1870, traveling with Wesley Howard and some Chronister relatives. Ira was listed in the 1875 Kansas census as I.G. Wolfe.

1885 On 1 January, Ira G Wolfe, unmarried, executed a mortgage for $800, from the Travelers Insurance Company in Abilene, Dickinson County, Kansas, for 80 acres on East half of the North East quarter of Section 26, Twp 11 South, Range 2, East of 6th PM.

1885 On 8 February Ira G Wolfe paid off a mortgage for $500 from Mariana C Porter (of Middlesex County, Massachusetts) for 80 acres in Kansas on East half of the North East quarter of Section 26, Twp 11 South, Range 2, East of 6th PM.

1885 Ira Wolfe and Clara Brenizer were married at "the Brenizers" on 12 February by James M Frame. Ira G Wolfe, age 31, was from Abilene, Kansas and Clara Brenizer, age 22, was from Haddam, (Washington County), Kansas. The marriage license record in the Abilene, Kansas courthouse reports that "the Brenizers" was in "said county", which would be Dickinson County, rather than Washington County. The wedding may have taken place at the house of Clara's brother, Jacob Addison Brenizer, who lived in Washigton County, Kansas with wife F.E. and daughter N.C Brenizer. [2] Alternatively, it could have taken place at the house of her uncle, John L Brenizer, in Abilene. Here are quotes describing the event. "Mr I.G. Wolfe, of Cheever Twp, and Miss Carrie Brenizer, of Union City, Indiana, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony, last week. The Gazette extends congratulations and wishes the young couple a happy and prosperous journey through life." [3][4] Ira G. Wolfe and Clara Brenizer married 2-12-1885 by J.M. Frame [Kansas, Dickinson County, Marriage Record, Book A-1, v.1] "Ira Geraldes Wolfe, of Abilene, Kansas, and Clara Verlilia Wolfe, of Union City, Indiana, were joined together in the bonds of holy matrimony at Haddam, Kansas, on the twelfth day of February, 1885, in the presence of J. A. Brenizer." [5]. Photocopy,  Marriage license for Ira Wolfe and Clara Brenizer.

[6] 1885 On 17 April, Ira G Wolfe paid off a mortgage from the Travelers Insurance Company, executed by Ira G Wolfe on 1 January 1885 in Abilene, Dickinson County, Kansas for 80 acres on East half of the North East quarter of Section 26, Twp 11 South, Range 2, East of 6th PM. 1885 Clara Brenizer's parents lived in Union City Ohio and apparently did not attend the wedding. Here are Clara's photos of her parents, Joseph Ritner Brenizer and wife Sarah Weigle Brenizer, from about this time [7]

Sarah Weigle Brenizer, c 1880s.

Joseph Ritner Brenizer, c 1880s. 1885 Ira G Wolfe (age 31 farmer) and Clara Wolfe (age 22 born PA and of Ohio); Joseph (age 49 carpenter) and Annie M (age 51 tailor) Chronister (Ira's mother and step-father ); Austin (age 16 carpenter), John (age 13), and Milton (age 11) Chronister; and C.M. Luke (age 12 born PA and of Colorado, Ira's nephew through half-sister Laura Chronister) lived in Cheever Twp, Dickinson County, Kansas. [8] Photocopy, 1885 census for Dickinson County, Kansas. 1885 Ira Wolfe's land was in Section 26 on the east half of the lot labeled Wm Free of the map below. Uncle John L. Brenizer owned 240 acres in section 35 of Dickinson County, Kansas. Next door was David Wesley Howard with 160 acres and with more land in section 34. Just south were the lands of John Brenizer's son CM Brenizer and further south was the land of John S. Chronister, who moved to Kansas with Ira Wolfe and DW Howard. [9]Photocopy, Map of Dickinson County, Kansas, 1885. Ira Wolfe's land was in section 26. The Chronister schoolhouse was south, in section 11 of Buckeye Twp. Brenizer, Howard, and Chronister landholdings were near section 35. 1885 Ira Wolfe, a farmer, and Clara Wolfe (age 23) lived in Garden City, Scott County, Kansas. The census listing just above was for Ira's parents and half-brothers, the Chronisters: Joseph, a cattleman (age 49), Anna (age 50), Austin (age 16), John (age 13), and Milton (age 11). The double listing with the census in Dickinson County, above, suggests that Clara and Ira Wolfe moved to Scott County soon after their marriage and that Ira Wolfe's family, the Chronisters, also moved from the Abilene area to Scott County at this time [10].

Ira outside his house in Scott county, Kansas. [11] Finney County is south of Scott County. Garden City is now in Finney County. Photocopy, 1885 census for Scott county, Kansas. 1885 "A township election was held in Scott Center July 7,1885, and the following officers were elected: Trustee, Charley L. Waite; Treasurer, C.R. Swan; Clerk, M.H. Bailey; Road Overseer, W.E. McLain; Justice of Peace, S.W. Case and Joseph Hollister; Constable Ira J. Wolf [Ira G Wolfe?]." [12] An alternative version reported: "A township election was held in Scott county July 7th, and the follow officers elected: Justice ... S. W. Case and J. Chronister, Trustee ... Charlie Waite, Chonstable ... John Keeve and L. G. Wolf ". [13] This likely refers to I.G. Wolf and indicates that both Ira and Joseph became active in the Scott County government soon after their move. Scott Center (the present day Scott City) was in Scott County, which was organized as a township of Finney County, Kansas. 1886 Ira Wolfe was in the business of "land locating" in Scott County: "Mr. Quance came to Scott County in 1886. A significant fact is that he came in company with three other men, but is the only one of the quartet still living in Scott County. That indicates perhaps the proportion of settlers who came out during those hopeful years of the '80s and who actually remained during the hard times that followed. Of the many hundreds who sought homes on the western prairies of Kansas in the early days, it is perhaps conservative to state that not more than one out of four came through the fire of adversity and bore the heat and burden of the day long enough to realize the dream of good fortune. ...Andrew J. Quance shipped a wagon and team over the railroad to Garden City, and from that point drove into Scott County. He was a stranger to everybody in this section. At the old postoffice and hamlet of Saratoga he met Ira Wolf, who followed the business of land locating. Under the guidance of Wolf he and his companions found their first claims. Mr. Quance selected as his location the southeast quarter of section 21, township 19, range 31. He built a half dugout and half sod house, with board roof, containing a single room. It was on the 10th of March he arrived in this region. After the house he put up a sod and board stable, and dug a well, finding water at a depth of only thirty-three feet. He also broke out some land the same year. " [14] The post office mentioned above, in Saratoga, might be the post office where Ira's mother was the postmistress (see the notes for Anna Brenizer). 1886 Ira Wolfe was involved in the local schools in Scott county. "At the special election in School District #2, Allen Bayless was elected director; Ira Wolfe, clerk, and J. C. Starr, treasurer. A three months' term of school, taught by Ed Hamm, commenced last Monday, May 3, 1886." [15] 1887 On 16 March, Ira G Wolf and Clara V Wolf, husband and wife of Scott County, Kansas, sold 160 acres in Scott County, Kansas to David Keller of Dickinson County, Kansas for $1,000. They owned the land free of encumbrances except for a $500 mortgage due to Catharine Weis three or five years from 1 January 1887. Sale witnessed by W E Eichelberger. 1888 Here is a description of land speculation along the railroad in Lamar Colorado, where Ira Wolfe lost money to Mr. Armint, as described in Homer's story. Story, Land speculation in Colorado.[16] 1890 Ira Wolfe's mother, Anna Brenizer Chronister, died in Scott County, Kansas. c1893 Clara and Ira Wolfe had photos taken in Union City. [17]
