Alonzo John and Bertha B. (________) WEHRLY are buried in the Salamonia Cemetery, Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.  Alonzo was paternal 1st cousin 3 times removed.

Lon was born March 1880 in Jay County, Indiana, the son of John P. and Catherine E. (LEMASTERS) WEHRLY.

Bertha was born circa 1884 in Indiana, according to the 1930 census.

I do not yet have the date of their marriage, though it must have been circa 1905 based on the birth dates of their children.  Four known children: Mary L., Robert W., June L. and Catherine E.

Lon was the County Sherriff in Jay County at the time of the 1930 census.

Lon died in 1960 and Bertha died in 1959.
