For those who have speculated that Solomon Wolfe might be the mother of John Carey George (b. 1791 Barnwell, SC; moved to Angelina Co., TX then Cherokee Co., TX).
Solomon Wolfe appears on the Angelina Co., TX 1850 Census with his family.He was born in North Carolina.
He also appears to have been very wealthy as there are numerous probate cases in which his name is mentioned in regard to large amounts of land all over East Texas.This particular one references to Cary and William J. George.
