Family Milestones: November 28th

My paternal great-granduncle, Blaine Pearl WEHRLY, married on this date in 1909 to Ermina Gladys ASHCRAFT in Jay County, Indiana.  Blaine was the son of William P. and Olive Jane (SMITH) WEHRLY, and the younger brother of my Barbara Isabel WEHRLY.  Blaine was born August 31, 1884 in Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana.  Ermina was born March 5, 1889 in Wabash Township, Jay County, Indiana, the daughter of William Stevenson and Blanche Bertha (LEWIS) ASHCRAFT. In 1930 census they were living in Portland, Jay County, Indiana.  Need further research after 1930.

My paternal 5th-great grandaunt, Magdalena ERB, married on this date in 1780 to David BRICKER.  Magdalena was the daughter of Jacob and Magdalena (SCHWARTZ) ERB, and the older sister of my Barbara ERB.  I do not know if she was born in Switzerland or in Pennsylvania.  Magdalena and David had at least 5 children, but nothing further is known.

My paternal 2nd-great granduncle, John Stevens LEMASTERS, married on this date in 1881 to Sarah I. WILSON in Jay County, Indiana.  John was the son of Luman Walker and Nancy (YOUNG) LEMASTERS, and the younger brother of my Luman Walker LEMASTERS Jr.  John was born April 22, 1855 in Jay County, Indiana.  Sarah was born September 1859 in Indiana.  They raised a family in St. Paul, Howard County, Nebraska.  I have nothing further on them past the 1920 census.

My maternal 3rd-great grandaunt, Mary S. LAMBERTSON, married on this date in 1863 to Samuel SNIVELY in Butler County, Ohio.  Mary was the daughter of John and Sarah A. (WILLSON) LAMBERTSON, and the older sister of my Carey W. LAMBERTSON.  Mary was born December 25, 1840 in Franklin County, Indiana. Samuel was born August 1842 in Ohio.  After their marriage they resided Butler County, Ohio and Madison County, Indiana.  Further research needs to be done to determine their dates of death.

My maternal 7th-great grandfather, Samuel HEATON, was born on this date in 1681 in Wrentham, Massachusetts.  Samuel was the son of Nathaniel HEATON.  He married December 10, 1706 in Wrentham, Massachusetts to Susan HAWES.  They had at least 9 children.  Samuel died between 1735 and 1737.
