Barbara (Petry) Wehrly (1802-1880)

Barbara (PETRY) WEHRLY was my paternal 3rd-great grandmother.


The following facts about Barbara's life are known:
  • Birth: She was born May 28, 1802 in York County, Pennsylvania, the daughter of George and Maria Catharina (KALTREIDER) PETRY.
  • Marriage: She married in 1821 in Stark County, Ohio to Johannes "John S." WEHRLY.
  • Census: 1860 - She was enumerated in the household of John S. Whorley, Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1870 - She was enumerated in the household of John S. Werley, Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Death: She died August 27, 1880 in Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Burial: She is buried in the Salamonia Cemetery, Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.

The following facts need additional research and/or documentation to complete my research:

  • Marriage: Need to determine the exact date of Barbara and John's marriage in Stark County, Ohio
  • Census: Need to locate her in the 1850 census.  She should be located in Preble County, Ohio.
  • Death: Need to check with the Jay County, Indiana Health Department to see if there exists a death record.
  • Obituary: Need to check and see if there was mention of her death in any local newspapers.
