On 3 April 1840, in Monroe Township, Morgan County, Ohio, William Powell Weaver was born to Gottlieb Weber [a.k.a. Goodliff Weaver] and Anne Lane. William was my great granduncle. His birth was recorded in the family Bible by his mother between that of his sisters Roseanah and Elizabeth Jane.
Uncle William married Catherine Elizabeth Deaver, daughter of Jonas Benjamin and Sarah Longstreet Deaver on 22 September 1861, in Perry County, Ohio. A Weaver married to a Deaver makes life just a bit confusing for a family historian! The couple were the parents of 11 children: Jonah (1862), Louis (1863), Sarah Anne (1868), Jonas B. G. (1870, James Henry (1872), Ezra Elsworth (1873), Alvira Jane (1874), Rose C. (1877), David L. (1879), George Edward (1881), and Clara Frances (1884).
Uncle William served in the Union Army during the Civil War [note the gap in birth dates of the children]. Aunt Catherine preceded him in death on 2 April 1924. Uncle William died of pnemonia on 14 July 1927, in Falls Township, Hocking County, Ohio. Both are interred in New Straitsville Cemetery in Perry County, Ohio.
