 The Wolfe Cemetery was transcribed by Ira Shane in 1967.

The Wolfe Cemetery
Hamilton County, IL

Transcriber's note: Located on the Jim Davis Farm and hard to find.  East of blacktop road.  We drove by edge of cornfield halfway and followed path through the woods.  Had to crawl under fence.  It was rather large and many stones were gone.  There was a circle of cedar trees in the east edge.  It sits on a hill with a woods all around it.  The west side was the only entrance we could find.  This place was well cared for.  Some stones were broken.
