LOCATION: Dobyville Cemetery, just west of Highway 281 about 12 miles north of Burnet.

Jacob Wolf (1812-1874) and wife Adeline Faulkner Wolf (1814-1870) came from Tennessee to Texas about 1850. Obtaining land in Burnet County, they settled at Dobyville, and were pioneers, supplying their own provisions, buildings, medicine, and school. Menaced by Indian raids and aware of need for government, Wolf in 1854 helped organize Burnet County. Of their 8 children, 2 sons became sheriffs, one in Burnet, one in Lampasas County. (1967)
