Catherine Wehrly (1836-1881), 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.

Catherine Wehrly (1836-1881) was the daughter of Johannes "John S." Wehrly and Barbara Petry.  Her marriage on December 13, 1857 in Jay County, Indiana to John B. Bucher was found in the database.  Her surname was spelled Worley in the record.  Prior to this find, I did not have the exact location of their marriage.

Catherine was my paternal 2nd-great grandaunt.  Our common ancestors were Johannes Wehrly and Barbara Petry.  Catherine and John had one son.  She died June 21, 1881.
