Marriage: William P. Wehrly to Olive Jane Smith


My paternal 2nd-great grandparents, William P. WEHRLY and Olive Jane SMITH were married on August 4, 1866 in Jay County, Indiana.  Notice in the record that William is shown with a middle initial of 'S.'; that was the middle initial used by his father.  Also, the spelling of the surname is WHERLEY in this record.

William was born November 2, 1845 in Preble County, Ohio, the son of Johannes "John S." and Barbara (PETRY) WEHRLY.  Olive was born June 23, 1846 in Cass County, Michigan, the daughter of William P. and Prudence (MAXSON) SMITH.

They lived out their lives in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana, where William was a farmer, sawmiller and mortician.  They had 13 children.

William died June 16, 1909 in Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana.  Olive died January 6, 1913 in Portland, Jay County, Indiana.
