Alonzo "Lon" John Wehrly (1880-1960), Jay County, Indiana

Working on filling in some gaps in my database by utilizing the "Indiana Marriages, 1811-1959" database at to see what updates and corrections I could find.

Alonzo "Lon" John Wehrly (1880-1960) was the son of John P. Wehrly and Catherine E. Lemasters.  He married Bertha B. Lyons on March 15, 1902 in Jay County, Indiana.  Prior to searching this database, I did not have her maiden name and the exact date of the wedding.

Lon was my paternal double first cousin three times removed.  Our common ancestors were Johannes Wehrly and Barbara Petry and Luman Walker Lemasters and Nancy Young.  Lon was the Jay County Sheriff in 1930 census.
