TILMAN B. WOLFE, of Haddon township, who was born and reared to agricultural pursuits, is a native of this township, born February 10, 1881, a son of George F. and Margaret (Pifer) Wolfe. Both of Mr. Wolfe's parents were natives of the same township in which the son was born. The father was born May 17, 1856, and is engaged in the hardware business at Oaktown, Knox county, Indiana, and the mother was born in 1859, in the same township as her husband. The grandfather, Uriah Wolfe, was among the early pioneer band who first effected a settlement in Sullivan county. George F., the father, always followed farming for a living, until February, 1899, when he engaged in the hardware trade at Oaktown, the firm being known as Snapp, Latshaw & Co. In his political views Mr. Wolfe is a Democrat. He is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America and Maccabees order. Both he and his wife are consistent members of the Christian church. The three children born to them are: Charles AI., residing in Haddon township; Tilman B., of this biographical review; Della B., wife of Melvin Sproatt, residing in Knox county, Indiana. George F. Wolfe was married a second time to Ollie Heddon, a native of Illinois, who died a few years after their marriage. Four children were born of this union, and all are deceased except Paul, who is now with his father at Oaktown. For his third wife Mr. Wolfe married Amanda Owens, a native of Turman township, Sullivan county, who is now his companion at Oaktown.

Tilman B. Wolfe, sou of George F. Wolfe by his first marriage, was reared on his father's farm and attended the district schools of Haddon township. He continued to reside at home until about twenty-one years of age, when he began farming for himself and has continued to the present time. He inherited one hundred acres of land where he lives now, about five years ago, in 1903. Here he carries on an extensive farm and stockraising business. Like every true American, Mr. Wolfe has his decided opinions concerning political parties and their platforms. He supports the Democratic party.

He was married February 17, 1901, to Maude Kite, born in Honey Creek township, Vigo county, Indiana, August 27, 1880, a daughter of Edwin and Rettie (Pickens) Kite; the latter is deceased. They moved to Sullivan county about 1895, locating in Haddon township. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Wolfe are: Hershel, Robertine and Russell.
