Subject: [CA-GOLDRUSH] Most Wanted: Sigfried WOLFF
Sigfried WOLFF, b 1854 in Berlin came to America in the 1870s and enlisted in the army, in the county of Trinity CA, (Weaverville to be exact). He renounced his allegiance to the Emperor William the First of Germany and became naturalized. The witnesses to his signature on April 14,1879 were a Morris GOETZ KARSKY and Isaac ABRAHM. Sigfried married Bertha JACOBS (Jacobowitz) from Visseck, Germany (near Berlin), in San Francisco and they had my grandfather, Jesse WOLFF in WA state in 1888. Sigfried had two brothers: Gustav and Hermann WOLFF and possibly sisters as well in Germany. Rumor has it there was a big argument between Sigfried and his family so he left home, and when a brother came to America to help mend things, Sigfried was stubborn and refused to mend the break. I am as stubborn as Sigfried and will look and look for my ancestors until I find them. I have recently learned Pauline GOETZ WOLFF 1818-1903 was the mother of Sigfried WOLFF. I have also learned that Gustav WOLFF's daughter Regina WOLFF married Albert TUCHLER 1899 in Berlin. Beth Colvin in FL.
