Anna Elizabeth Bohrn was the 2nd wife of Johann U. Eisley (Jaisli / Jaissel / Yeisley). They were married on 25 Jun 1848 in Niederbipp, Canton of Berne, Switzerland.

Burial Records of St. Mark's Lutheran Church say she is buried at the church cemetery. Family records say she is buried at the homestead in Clay Twp., grave unmarked.

Immigrated in March, 1852 from Switzerland to Clay Twp., Auglaize Co. Bought 35 acres in Clay Twp. in 1852 for $300. Applied for U.S. Citizenship in November, 1854. Johann U. Eisley received his U.S. Citizenship papers on May 5, 1857.

History of Auglaize Co., pg. 567: "Upon coming here, John U. Eisley bought a small farm of 35 acres in just about the geographical center of Logan [should say Clay] township and on that place established his home and began farming, his first task there being to make a clearing for the log cabin he erected for his family, for that district then was heavily wooded, he and his wife thus becoming pioneers of that section. On that place they spent their last days. Her death occurred in 1858, six years after her arrival here. He survived her many years, his death occurring in 1893. They were the parents of seven children, five of whom are still living, [Samuel,] the subject of this sketch having two sisters, Elizabeth and Catherine, and two brothers, Jacob and Charles Eisley." [John and Frederick deceased prior to the writing of this biography.]
