John Rolfs was my great,great grandfather.I have located his information through Ellis Island.Our family mythology says that John met Mary (sister of William) at Ellis Island.However, so far no records have turned up for Mary. This John Rolfs moved to Cincinnati and had a "Beer Garden" He and Mary are buried at Vine street Cemetary, Cincinnati. John and Mary's son, John, moved to Indiana and the story continues to me.
Now, back to William: Children of William H. and Anna Earhart: Mary Koring b: 1869d: 1872 Henry W. Koring B: 11-4-1871 Married Emily Landau D: 8-11-1944 2 children born to Henry and Emily: 1.
