Olive Jane (Smith) Wehrly (1846-1913)

Olive Jane (SMITH) WEHRLY was my paternal 2nd-great grandmother.  With a surname of SMITH, tracing this line will be interesting, to say the least.

The following facts about Olive's life are known:
  • Birth: She was born June 23, 1846 in Cass County, Michigan, the daughter of William P. and Prudence (MAXSON) SMITH.
  • Census: 1860 - she appears in the William SMITH household in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.

  • Death: She died January 6, 1913 in Portland, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Burial: She is buried in the Salamonia Cemetery, Jay County, Indiana.
The following facts need further research and/or documentation to complete my research:
