128. Teunis WOLF
was born about 1762 in Livingston Manor, NY?. He was buried in Jul 1834 in
probably Meadow Falls Farm, New Baltimore, NY.(46)
Walter and Frances Dietz theorize that Teunis and his wife are buried
the backyard of the Meadows-Fall Farm, down by the pond, and, as of
under the pylons of some high tension wires that the electric company
graced the property with. He died on 11 Jul 1834 in Meadow Falls Farm, New Baltimore, NY. "Through luck and/or hard work Teunis' father (or perhaps his father)
was able to escape the horrors of Livingston Manor, where the
Palatines were originally settled to work the pine forests, into
Kinderhook (considered to be freemen's land). Teunis never learned to
read or write English. For that matter he probably could only speak
German. He didn't know when he was born, but Catherine [Wolfrom] did.
She lived to be 95 here on this place [the Wolf Farm in New
Baltimore] when she died in 1855. We estimate Teunis' birth date to
have been around 1762, but of course we have no proof. Teunis and
Catherine and a feeble-minded daughter Polly are buried here in
unmarked graves. We can only estimate where it might be on a hillside
where wild field lilies now grow. Teunis crossed from the Kinderhook
area over the Hudson River to this place in 1782 according to
Catherine's recollections. He died July 11, 1834. Frances thinks he
must have been racked with rheumatism since his orders for rum from
the local trading store became quite voluminous in his last years!"
