Donegal township is adjacent to Buffalo, on the west, and includes Claysville. The tax list has Jacob Wolf, Christian Wolf and William Wolf, each with about 150 acres, a couple of horses, cows and a few sheep. From Beers, Commemorative History of Washington County, "When the Wolf family came to Washington county they made their home in the dense forest, where roamed the wolf, the deer and the bear, and the ofttimes less welcome Indian. Here they lived in comparative safety in their little log house, enduring all the hardships and privations incident to pioneer days, and ere they passed from earth were eyewitnesses to very many of the changes that brought about the development of civilization in their midst. At one time the Indians became so hostile that the settlers were compelled to seek safety in the nearest blockhouse. Peter Wolf bought three farms in this county, one for each of his sons, William, John and Jacob. Two sons, Peter and Cresley, had moved to Ohio, where all trace of them is lost. The father died in this county at a very advanced age, and it may here be mentioned that the family have generally been remarkably long-lived." p. 698
