Happy 214th Birthday, Great Great Grandfather Weaver!

7 January 1806, in Stuttgart, Württemberg, Gottlieb Weber was born to Johann Adam Weber and Anna Barbara Holzäpfel.   Gottlieb was the second of five children.  He immigrated to America with his father, brother, Johann Georg,  and sister, Christiana in 1827.  They first settled in Washington County, Pennsylvania.  Gottlieb met and married Anne Lane, the daughter of Richard and Mary Gayer Lane, on 29 January 1835, in Washington County, Pennsylvania.  Soon after the marriage, Gottlieb Weber became Goodliff Weaver.

The couple were the parents of 12 children:  Mary Ann (1836-1836), Roseanah (1837) [both born in Washington Co, PA), William Powell (1840) [Monroe Twp, Morgan Co, Ohio], Elizabeth Jane (1842) [she and the rest of the children were born in Perry County, Ohio], Margaret Anne (1844), Charles Louis (1847), Christiana (1849), David Shreider (1855), Jasper P (1855), Lemuel (1857) [my great grandfather], George Adam Hempleman (1861), and Eric (1864-1864).

Grandfather passed away on 15 November 1864, on month after Eric.  Both Eric and Grandmother Anne died during Eric’s birth on 14 October 1864.  Both grandparents are interred in Mount Carmel Cemetery, Rendville, Perry County, Ohio.

It is after Grandfather Goodliff Weaver that my grandfather, Lee Norton Goodliff Weaver, was given one of his middle names — and the one he kept into adulthood.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
