Re: Elizabeth Ohley Alton Ill.
I was really pleased to see your inquiry, since I hadn't earlier come across that spelling of Ohley--especially with the Alton, IL match!
I'm wondering if my great grandfather, Jacob Henry Ohley, of Alton, Illinois (born June 6, 1855 and died Sept.18, 1924) was a brother or cousin of Elizabeth Ohley.
The dates, town, and surname spelling make me think they were related.He married Mary Ann Steinburn--probably in the late 1870s or early 1880s, since my grandmother Mary Ohley (later Wermuth) was born in Alton on December 8, 1881.
Let me know what you think.
