I am researching Rolfe's (Rolf) who came from England abt 1860's - 1873 and settled in Waukesha WI. My G-Father Michael Rolfe; G-mother Ann Mary Rolfe - had 13 children. Michael's father was Daniel Rebecca Rolfe of England. Any connections?
Regards, Ralph Salter

It looks as though my ancestors left Methwold,Norfolk England and settled in Dane Co.WI about 1853 or so. This the NATHANIEL and JANE ROLFE line; children, ANN, NATHAN & MARY. Ann and Mary both married Tibbets. I don't know if this helps or not but please let me know. Thanks, Kathy

Hi Janet, I just read your post of 2008, and although it's been 4 years ago, I hope you're still interested in this family history. First, the sad news, 'Uncle Ralph' passed away in November 2011 at age 98, he would have been 100 this year. Being his niece, I spent much time with him after his wife passed away abt 15 years ago. He and I shared the love of family history and spent many hours together going over old family pictures and letters.
His family left Waukesha in the late 20's when he was a teenager, but he vividly remembered his relatives there and many early family events and stories and passed them on to me. Ralph's mother Mabel Grace Rolfe was the youngest of 13 children of Michael and Ann Mary Rolfe.

I also remember how excited my mother Mabel was when her 'Cousin' Alice came to our house in the mid 1950's. I think she may have made the trip down with 'Aunt Gertie'.

Another cousin, 'Mary Sue'remembers that visit and she's also interested in this family history and has contributed and shared her records. She and my brother were caregivers to Uncle Ralph in his last days. I am sure she would be overjoyed to hear of this connection to you.

Well, I could go on and on but it probably is better to wait for your reply.

With Best Regards, Genie Ryan

P.S. Will be happy to share any and all info I have, let me know what you need.
