Death Record : Christena Wherley, 1872, Tuscarawas County, Ohio

"Ohio, County Death Records, 1840-2001," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 22 August 2015), Christena Wherley, 19 Dec 1872; citing Death, Jefferson Township, Tuscarawas, Ohio, United States, source ID v 1a p 571, County courthouses, Ohio; FHL microfilm 890,361.
Located the death record of my paternal 4th-great grandmother, Christena (Saubel) Wherley (c1775-1872) in Jefferson Township, Tuscarawas County, Ohio.  Christina was the widow of Heinrich "Henry" Wherley/Wehrly, who had died in 1846.

The record was not recorded until June 9, 1873.   It lists her name as Wherley, Christena, a resident of Jefferson Township, who died December 19, 1872, aged 98 years.  The cause of death was unknown.  She was a female, white and widowed.  Her parents names were unknown, and place of birth was listed as Ohio (other records suggest Pennsylvania).  The place of death was Jefferson Township, and she had no occupation.  The name of the undertaker was unknown.

The family surname variations make this one an interesting one to search, with Wehrly, Wehrley, Wherly, Wherley being just a few of the examples I'm finding.

I do not know what cemetery she is buried in.  I tried to locate a memorial at FindAGrave and was unable to find one for her.  Her husband was buried at Stone Creek Cemetery in Tuscarawas County.

If you are related or have any additional information and or corrections, I would love to hear from you.
