NOTES: 
The Tinnin family left Arkansas following the Civil War and settled in Bell County near Salado. Azariah soon died and was buried there. Amanda moved to Bosque County where her son Jacob Wolf Tinnin and his wife lived at Morgan which was a railroad terminus for shipping cattle to Kansas City. Jacob Wolf Tinnin operated a confectionary store, edited and published the local newspaper, taught school, and was a very active member of the
Confederate veterans organization. He was noted throughout Bosque and Bell Counties as a gifted orator and writer. Nothing much is know of the other children. There is a Johnny Wolf buried beside Amanda in the Morgan Cemetery. He was 12 years old when he died at her home. Since Amanda's maiden name was Wolf it is known that
he is a family member but this researcher does not know who his parents were. Wolf family records say that Amanda was married a second time to a Judge Harley, but this researcher has not been able to document that.  Amanda's father, Major Jacob Wolf was selected by President Adams to pioneer the territory where the White River and the North River merged at a place called Norfork, AR. Thus the family moved from KY to AR in 1818 and her father built an establishment that is now certified as the oldest courthouse in AR. However the Civil War destroyed the holdings and wealth of the Wolf family and that is how the Tinnin's found themselves in Texas in the Bosque County area.
