Rebecca Wise Shidler

Rebecca Wise Shidler, probable/possible daughter of Peter and Christina Wise, was born about 1822-1825 in Pennsylvania, died on 04 Feb 1877, and was buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Ashland County, Ohio. Rebecca Wise married Jacob Shidler on March 16, 1843 in Wayne County, Ohio (Wayne County, Ohio Marriages 1813-1898, Wayne County Genealogical Society, 1997 citing vol 4B pg 8).

The online cemetery transcription shows that Rebecca died Feb. 4, 1877 age 51y 6m. Using her age at death, her date of birth calculates to August 4, 1825. However, she was 28 in the 1850 census, 38 in 1860, and 46 in 1870, making her year of birth between 1822-1825. In all three census records she was listed as born in Pennsylvania. She could be the one female, age 15-19 listed in the household of Peter Wise in the 1840 Wayne County, Ohio census.

Rebecca is being included here as a probable/possible daughter of Peter and Christina Wise based upon information that my grandmother gave in a handwritten note listing the grandchildren of "John" Wise. However, they weren't grandchildren of John but, rather, of Rebecca Wise Shidler.

The note found in my grandmother's files:
grandchildren of John Wise, brother of Jacob Wise [rwNote: grandchildren of Rebecca Wise]
Jenny Murry [rwNote: Jane A. Shidler Murray, d/o of Rebecca Wise]
Guy Murry - Mansfield - children of Jenny Murry [rwNote: son of Jane A. Shidler Murray]
Robert Murry (Ashland) [rwNote: grandson of Jane A. Shidler Murray by her son Harrold]
Mrs. Macy Hart - sister of Guy Murry - Ashland, Ohio [rwNote: daughter of Jane A. Shidler Murray]

Jacob Shidler, Rebecca's husband, was born on 23 Nov 1819, died on 23 Oct 1866, and was buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Ashland County, Ohio.
