In memory of Great Granduncle Adam

One of my favorite family member names is that of my great granduncle, George Adam Hempleman Weaver.  He was my great grandfather, Lemuel Weaver’s younger brother.  I guess GG Grandfather Goodliff [nee: Gottlieb Weber] and GG Grandmother Anne wanted to use up all remaining names since Uncle Adam was their 11th child and they were pretty used up in the creative name game.  Uncle Adam was born on 18 December 1861 and only lived 17 years, dying on 25 June 1879.   He is buried in the family plot in Mount Carmel Cemetery, Rendville, Perry County, Ohio.

Question I wish I had know to ask my grandfather: “What was with the name Hempleman for your Uncle Adam?”    I inherited the Weaver family bible and Uncle Adam’s birth was recorded there with the full name by his mother, Anne Lane Weaver, my great great grandmother, so it was for real.  His death was penned by another since Grandmother Weaver died in 1864 at the same time as the birth of child number 12, Eric.
