  • Sarah Elizabeth Wolfe is my Grandmother. I have several generations of her Wolfe Ancestors, going back to William Wolfe b 1810 in Cahirkirky, Kilmeen, Cork. I have James Meara as the father of Catherine Meara, but with no DOB or place.

    For confidentiality reason, I suggest that you e-mail me at tonykirkman@csi.com so we can share information and maybe Gedcom files
