George was born in Germany and came to America in 1739 with his father and the rest of the family.  His mother was a Zimmerman and as was his wife.  Jon Wohlford indicated to me in a phone conversation that these two women were related.  Elizabeth Zimmerman’s (George’s wife) father was named Peter.  There was a Peter Zimmerman on the ship that brought George and his father Johannes to America.  Very possibly this was his wife-to-be’s father.

John Wolford, born August 12, 1835 in Baree, Huntingdon County PA and died July 2, 1907 in Los Angeles, CA. He served in Company B, Thirteenth Regiment, PA Voluntary Calvary during the Civil War. John Wolford Obituary 1908

Susannah Wolford was born December 16, 1837 in Barree, PA. She married Jacob Miller Isenberg in her home in Barree on May 7, 1856.

Susannah once loaned an Eastlake marble top table to her church for use during communion. It remained there until the Church moved to a new building nearly 100 years later. Unbelievably, someone in the Church remembered the table originally belonged to the Isenberg family. It was returned to Don Berkebile. It is a treasured family heirloom and reminder of her kindness and generosity.
