Olive Alta Wegley is the youngest child of Jonathan George Wegley and his wife
She was born on February 2, 1884, in Washington, Ohio and died on August 25, 1960.
Her grave shows her name as Olive A., however, the Ohio Births and Christenings Index (1774-1973) shows her name as Alta Olive Wegley. It’s most likely just a mistake in transcription but I did want to make my readers aware of this.
Olive married her husband Pearl Cloyd Rasor on December 25, 1901, when she was just 17 years old. Together they had at least two children, a son, and a daughter.
- Herman James (March 21, 1905 – December 13, 1985)
- Dorothy Miriam (February 25, 1908 – September 8, 1996)
In the 1930 US Census, we learned that her husband ran a grocery store and she worked as a saleswoman in the store (Unpaid worker, member of the family).
When her husband passed away, she remarried (she was 66 at the time). The marriage to her 2nd husband (Charles Trushel) took place on November 9, 1951.
