It seems  possible to me too---the marry/Mary (but not merry)
all-the-same is  standard for the lower parts of Michigan (some of which
abut  Ohio).   

And then there's the slightly farther midwest version (Illinois) of Mary,  
pronouncing it "Murry".
Mary, who has gotten used to being called May-ry in the south, Murry in the  
midwest, Meh-uh-ry in New York, and various other pronunciations in different  
parts of the country.
