I just got word tonight that the Wollet GenForum is up and running. Welcome! I hope we can find oodles of cousins. Right now we have found ten in just two years!!
Most of the ten descend from Phillip Wollet, b. 1776 PA, Died 9 Oct 1836 Bath Twp Allen Col OH. Married to Anna Marie (aka Mary)Hering, b. abt 1774, died July 1840 Allen Co. OH. They had eight children. Her parents are Phillip and Elizabeth Hering.
One of his sons is my great great grandfather was Solomon Wollet b. 21 Sept 1815 in Fairfield Co. OH. He married three wives: Rebecca Ridenour in 1837 and died in 1840 after giving birth to one child who died in infancy. Then he married Elizabeth Richards, b. 22 Sept 1823 in Fairfield Co. OH, They had four children: Mary Ellen, Sarahan, Jacob (Jake) and Joseph. She died on 2 Oct 1850. I have all the kids birthdates. Thirdly, he married Sarah Ridenour, sister to Rebecca. She was born in May 1830 and died on 25 May 1911 in her eightys, both in Allen Co.OH. It is said she was the first white child born in Allen Co. Territory. Peter D. Ridenour in his book confirmed the family story. She and Solomon had 11 children: Sophia Adeline (my great grandmother) b. 25 Dec 1954 d. 28 Aug 1940 Pasadena, CA. She married James Curtis "Curt" Stoner in 23 Sept 1884 Lima OH; Minerva Jane married Daniel Fetter, died 1896; John (Jake) b.4 Nov 1855 married a Kate, died 3 May 1922; Frank born 25 May 1864 married Ruth Purdy and had one son Clyde Wollet who never married, Frank died 20 Apr 1906; Edward b.May 1860 married to a Lizzie; Elijah b. 4 Feb 1855, died 12 April 1925. Ora Alice 1870 married to a Young; (I have her buttermilk sugar cookie recipe-Yum!)
Lucinda b. 1856 to Clay DeVoy and Aunt Hale who I knew when a child born 28 Dec 1866 and died in the 1950s. She never married that I know of.
Sarah Ridnour Wollet's parents are Peter and Eba Johnson Ridenour. Eba died in childbirth soon after Sarah was born.
I hope this forum helps Wollet cousins connect. We also have a Samuel Wollet/Wallet so all spellings are acceptable. Good Hunting, Linda
