You may be right. In Block 1 Site 73 Lot 1 is Anna Dorr (Buried 7/03/1859 -aged 23) and in the same site are buried Lot 2: Mary Dorr (Buried 8/19/1864), Lot 3: Christine Dorr Buried 8/24/1860), Lot 3: Mary A. Dorr (Buried 8/23/1859 aged 7 mo.),Lot 4: Anna Dorr (buried 8/08/1862 -10 mo.), Lot 4: Joseph Dorr (Buried 2/18/1865), Lot 5: Broken Marker, Lot 7: George Shular (Buried 7/14/1854-age 23), and Lot 8: J.(John)G. Shular (Cem.spelling)(Buried 5/20/1860 -aged 67).
I'm not related but doing more research, it seems Joseph was married twice: Anna Scheling Schuler(1855)was his first and Agatha Reuschly(1860)his second. It would appear that George Shuler married Anna when they were 19 and 14, if the dates are correct. Mary, Anna, and Joseph would be children of Joseph and Agatha's. Mary A. would have been Joseph and Anna's. It's unknown which wife Christine would belong with.
The suggestion that the first wife's maiden name was Travys was because in the 1860 census, Joseph had living with him and 3 year-old Elizabeth, Ursula Travys. In this situation, it was not unusual for a mother-in-law to move in. I'm glad things are straightened out. Thank you.
