DAVID EHRHEART WOLF, farmer of Bethel township, living at Center Valley, is a well-known citizen of his section of Armstrong county, where he has served in various public capacities which have brought him into contact with the residents of the locality. He is a son of Samuel B. Wolf, and grandson of Jacob Wolf, who was of German descent.

Samuel B. Wolf was born in Armstrong county July 26, 1825, and died March 5, 1907. He followed the blacksmith's trade. His wife, Maria (Wareham) was born in Armstrong county Feb. 22, 1830, and died in November, 1901. She, too, was of German descent, Mr. And Mrs Wolf had a family of eight children, six sons and two daughters; four of the sons still survive.

David Ehrheart Wolf was born July 25, 1851, in Center Valley, Armstrong county, in what was then Allegheny (now Bethel) township, and received the name Ehrheart in honor of one of the early ministers of the neighborhood. He learned his fathers's trade, blacksmithing, which he has followed to some extent, but he is at present engaged in farming, in which he has met with success. He is also an undertaker, and acts as health officer for Parks, Gilpen and Bethel townships, giving highly satisfactory service to the community in this responsible office. He has been tax collector for Bethel township for a period of seven years, and was clerk for the jury commissioner for nine years, his long continuance in office being the best evidence of his efficient work. Politically he has always been a Republican. He belongs to the Lutheran Church, and fraternally is a prominent member of the I.O.O.F., belonging to the White Rock Lodge, No. 979, in which he has passed all the chairs, and to Encampment No. 244, Kittanning.

Mr. Wolf's first marriage was to Martha J. Beattie, daughter of Samuel W. And Mary (Mott) Beattie. She died in 1883, the mother of four children, namely: Guy Smith, who is now engaged as a steamboat man; Lottie O., who married T.S. Weaver and died in September, 1911, the mother of four children, two deceased in infancy, and Philip and Sherman, living: Murnice R., who was drowned May 25, 1901; and Myrtle M., Mrs. Sims, of Chicago, Ill. In 1890 Mr. Wolf married (second) Eva Smith, of Armstrong county, daughter of Peter A. and Sarah Smith, and they have had one child, Lola, now the wife of Clyde A. Crail, of Center Valley, who has one son, Robert.
