  • Several biographies put the location of Ohleyer's birth as "Algiers, France" which most likely meant the location now in the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria (in North Africa). Ohleyer is the first California legislator who I've found to be born in Africa.
  • Be Fruitful and Multiply: Ohleyer had seven children.
  • PLACENAME: Ohleyer Road in Yuba City is named for the legislator.
