Albert Harland Rolfe was born in Painesville Ohio in 1840, the son of Erastus and Rhoda (Collwell) Rolfe. Albert's mother died a few years after his birth in Painesville.
He traveled to Wisconsin with his father Erastus Rolfe and his brother Ranson Rolfe, stopping first at Delavan, WI, then Albany in Green County, before finally coming to LaFarge, WI and then to Seelyburg (Star)) where Albert went to work for Dempster Seely at his sawmill.
Albert met and married at "Star" Jemimah Ellen Moore, 3rd child of Peter Sherman Moore and Cynthia Kirkpatrick Moore. Prior to going to work for Dempster Seely, Albert farmed for a bit on his father's farm located just below La Farge, WI.
Albert H Rolfe and Jemima Elen Moore Rolfe lived first up on Maple Ridge, then moved down on Jug Creek on a 180 acre farm which had a frame house on it. The house burned down in late September 1885,and neighbors then hauled two log schoolhouses across the pasture log by log with teams of horses and rebuilt the log house on its present location on Jug Creek. Grandfather (Chauncey) Bunce, a carpenter who was from Sparta (near the water tower) and had married Cynthia S Moore, widow of Peter Sherman Moore, built on a kitchen addition to the log house. The farm was sold in 1901 to a Frank Sayles for the amount of $1800.00, or $10.00 per acre. The Albert Harland Rolfe family then moved to La Farge, WI. While on the farm Albert was a farmer, also serving approximately four years in the Civil War in Co K, 6th WI Vol Infantry, where they fought in Virginia.

Rhoda Colwell1

F, b. 1820, d. between 20 October 1846 and 22 October 1846
     Rhoda Colwell was also known as Rhoda Collwell.2 She is included in the biography of Albert Harland Rolfe; Oral History Transcription of Dr. Jean F Rolfe's comments to this researcher on March & Dec 1977, and May 27 1978
Albert Harland Rolfe was born in Painesville Ohio in 1840, the son of Erastus and Rhoda (Collwell) Rolfe. Albert's mother died a few years after his birth in Painesville.
He traveled to Wisconsin with his father Erastus Rolfe and his brother Ranson Rolfe, stopping first at Delavan, WI, then Albany in Green County, before finally coming to LaFarge, WI and then to Seelyburg (Star)) where Albert went to work for Dempster Seely at his sawmill.
Albert met and married at "Star" Jemimah Ellen Moore, 3rd child of Peter Sherman Moore and Cynthia Kirkpatrick Moore. Prior to going to work for Dempster Seely, Albert farmed for a bit on his father's farm located just below La Farge, WI.
Albert H Rolfe and Jemima Elen Moore Rolfe lived first up on Maple Ridge, then moved down on Jug Creek on a 180 acre farm which had a frame house on it. The house burned down in late September 1885,and neighbors then hauled two log schoolhouses across the pasture log by log with teams of horses and rebuilt the log house on its present location on Jug Creek. Grandfather (Chauncey) Bunce, a carpenter who was from Sparta (near the water tower) and had married Cynthia S Moore, widow of Peter Sherman Moore, built on a kitchen addition to the log house. The farm was sold in 1901 to a Frank Sayles for the amount of $1800.00, or $10.00 per acre. The Albert Harland Rolfe family then moved to La Farge, WI. While on the farm Albert was a farmer, also serving approximately four years in the Civil War in Co K, 6th WI Vol Infantry, where they fought in Virginia. (Kitchen addition built sometime in 1889).2 Rhoda Colwell was born in 1820 at Ohio.1,3 As of 1 January 1840,her married name was Rolfe.1 She married Erastus Rolfe, son of Henry H Rolfe and Asenath "Sena" Coltrain, on 1 January 1840 at Geauga County, Ohio.1 Rhoda died between 20 October 1846 and 22 October 1846 at Painsesville, Lake County, Ohio. Albert's mother died a few after his birth in Painesville..1,2
