1737 Jacob Wolf immigrated to Philadelphia on 30 Aug 1737 aboard the ship Samuel [29] from Ronnenberg [named Baumholder in 2007]. Hugh Percy was the captain, sailing from Rotterdam. A list of male passengers, over age sixteen, included Jacob Wolf, age 43 [30] and John Peter Wolf, age 17. [31]

1745 Hans, Jacob, and Peter Wolff were listed as members in Lischy's church records, York County, Pennsylvania. [32] An Entry in the record book of the First Reformed Church, York, lists the names of Jacob, Hanes, and Peter Wolf as subscribers to the fund to build a church; the record is dated March 17, 1745. [33]

1750 Jacob and Anna Barbara Wolf [Wolff] were sponsors for the baptism, in January, of John Jacob Wolff, son of Johannes and Charlotte Wolf, in records of the Reverend Jacob Lischey. [34]

1750 Jacob and Anna Barbara Wolf [Wolff] were sponsors for the baptism, in April, of John Jacob Wolff, son of Peter and Anna Elizabeth Wolf, in records of the Reverend Jacob Lischey. [35]

1751 John Jacob Wolf settled in Paradise Township, York County, where he received a warrant, on December 18, for 266 ½ acres of land. The land was surrounded by lands belonging to Conrad Ament, Jacob Ziegler, Christian Oister, Peter Enderson and George Rudolph. [36][37][38]

1754 Jacob Wolf, of Paradise Twp, exchanged a 100-acre tract of land; in Paradise Township, York County; for one of like acreage in the Pigeon Hills in Berwick Township on 22 February, 1754. The exchange was made with Peter Naftzger of BerwickTownship on condition that each pay the principal and interest which the other owned at the time of exchange. The land that Jacob Wolf got was adjacent to land of Abraham Housewart, George Peter, and had been originally granted to Andreas Balley [Andrew Bailey] in 1744. Jacob Wolf gave up land in Paradise Twp that he had warranted on 18 Dec 1751. Recorded 17 December 1762. [39][40]

1757 Jacob Wolf deeded the land where he lived, adjacent to Abraham Housewart and George Peter, in Pigeon Hills in Berwick Township, to Frederick Wolf (likely his son), on July 2, 1757, on condition; first, that Frederick agree to pay the unpaid principal, the interest on it and the quit rent due the Proprietors of the Province; second, that Jacob and his wife, Barbara, be permitted to live in the house on the farm and be assured of support until their decease. The deed showing this transfer was recorded December 13, 1762. [41]

Research Notes:

1737 Jacob Wolf immigrated to Philadelphia on 30 Aug 1737 aboard the ship Samuel [42] from Ronnenberg [named Baumholder in 2007]. Hugh Percy was the captain, sailing from Rotterdam. A list of male passengers, over age sixteen, included Jacob Wolf, age 43 [43]; John Peter Wolf, age 17; Joh William Welch, age 25; and Jacob Welch, age 21. [44] Some researchers suspect that Welch could be a mis-spelling of Wolf. Welsch was also a family name associated with the Wolff family in York County. [45]

In the Record of Rev. Jacob Lischey, there is a reference to a Jacob Wolf who subscribed to an "Ordnung" for member belonging to a Reformed Church located in the Pigeon Hills. [46]

In the record of St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Hanover, Pennsylvania, they were the godparents of a daughter, Anna Barbara, the child of Henry Ickes and his wife, residents of Berwick Township. [47]

1762 The name of James Wolf [Jacob Wolf?] was included in a tax list of Berwick Township for the year 1762. [48]

Ulmet was in Rhenish Bayern, now Rheinland-Pfalz

Johan Jacob Wolff has been reported to be the son of Hans Peter Wolff from Ronnenberg. Johan Jacob Wolff married Anna Barbara Orth, daughter of Jacob Orth from Weiler. Johan Jacob Wolff might be the same Johan Jacob Wolff born to Hans Peter and Susannah in Rathweiler 3 May 1694. Johan Jacob is the only child of Hans Peter and Susannah Wolff found in the Rathweiler (Ulmet) church records. Several children were born to Hans Peter and Susanna Wolff in Ronnenberg (Baumholder church records) starting in 1696. This is consistent with Hans Peter and Susanna relocating from Rathsweiler to Ronnenberg after 1694.

Johann Peter Wolf (1671-1700/1707) and Maria Susanna Rauschkolb (1672-1710), married 5 May 1696, have also been named as parents of Johan Jacob Wolff.
Johann Peter Orth (1648-) and Anna Magdalena Bass (1659-) have also been named as the parents of Anna Barbara Orth. We seek evidence to clarify the identity of her parents.

1733 Johann Abraham Wolff, son of Jacob Wolff died 23 Feb 1733 at age 3 years, 3 months, 16 days. [49]
