The daughter of Thomas Levi and Nellie Augusta (White) Wolf, daughter born in Marshall Oklahoma - "Catherine Wolf", tells me a story of Edwin (I am the granddaughter of Catherine Wolf). She spoke of Edwin as he was a kind and gentle man. He would come home to Marshall Oklahoma singing the tune she remembers so well called "I Still Smell Those Navy Beens A'Cookin", and she said she sung it all the time with him when he would come home to visit.
