research notes

Family name is WERNER, as seen on their grave markers, and most documents.

George Werner’s mother’s name is in question. Familysearch, FindAGrave, and George’s death certificate all show her as Salome Sarah Wertenberger (1813-1884).

Familysearch shows her parents as John George Wertenberger (1762-1843) and Mary Elizabeth Harter (1767-1832).

FindAGrave shows her parents as Samuel M. Wertenberger (1786-1828) and Susanna Rank (1790-1865)

None of that matches Wikitree data. Can you help unravel this mess?

I suppose that George’s mother may have married first SHERMAN, then married WERNER.
