Mary Anna Bahle Pepperney is my great great grandmother on my father’s side. Born in 1877 in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of Jacob Bahle and (Rachel Snauffer?)*.
On August 5, 1896, in Saint Mary Catholic Church in Pittsburgh, she married George Peter Pepperney with Rev. Enders presiding.

- Mary Margaret Pepperney (1902 – 1980)
- James Albert Pepperney (1906 – 1999)
- Katherine Emma Pepperney (1910 – 1978)
- Baby Pepperney (1910)
- Eleanor Julia Pepperney (1912 – 1951)
On Sunday, March 31, 1935, Mary Anna was stricken with a sudden stroke at age 58. She was nursed for two weeks before dying on April 11 at 12:30 p.m.

*Mary Pepperney’s death certificate provides this name, but so far I’ve found no other records of a Rachel Snauffer married to a Jacob Bahle. There is a contemporary Jacob Bahle in Pittsburgh married to Henrietta, but I haven’t explored that further..
