Barbara Isabel (Wehrly) LeMasters (1869-1930)

Barbara Isabel (WEHRLY) LeMASTERS was my paternal great-grandmother. I have seen her middle name as both Isabelle and Isabel. I prefer the 'Isabel' spelling as it seems more Germanic.

The following facts about Barbara's life are known:
  • Birth: Barbara was born March 14, 1869 in Jay County, Indiana, the daughter of William P. and Olive Jane (SMITH) WEHRLY.
  • Census: 1870 - she is listed in the household of William P. WEHRLY in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana. Surname spelled 'WERLY' in census record.
  • Marriage: She married Luman Cooper LeMASTERS on November 13, 1886 in Jay County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1910 - she is listed in the household of Cooper LEMASTER in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1920 - she is listed in the houseld of Luman LEMASTER in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Death: She died February 7, 1930 in Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana
  • Burial: She is buried in the Grand View section of Salamonia Cemetery, Jay County, Indiana.
The following facts need further research and/or documentation to complete my research:
  • Birth: My source for her birthdate is a compiled genealogy. Need to find other contemporary sources that can collaborate this date.
  • Census: Need to locate her in the 1880 census, should be listed in the household of William WEHRLY, probably Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Census: Need to locate her in the 1900 census, I have her husband listed as being in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana but have not documented that fact yet.
  • Death: Need to locate a copy of her death certificate.
  • Obituary: Need to locate a copy of her obituary in the local paper.
