Happy 132nd Birthday, Cousin Chester!

On 10 July 1888, in Rendville, Perry County, Ohio, my first cousin, twice removed, Chester Lewis Weaver, was born to Charles Louis and Anna Knaisch [Nash] Weaver.  By 1910, Chester was working as a Drygoods salesman and living in Columbus with his widowed aunt, Christina Weaver Rinehart.  on, 19 April 1918, Chester wed Lucille Rinehart, daughter of John Cyrus and Emma May Adams Rinehart (I have not found the relationship between Lucille and Aunt Teen’s late husband’s family).  By 1920, the couple were living in an apartment building on High Street in Detroit and Chester was a Railroad inspector and the proud father of 11 month old Louis.  By 1930, the family had moved to an apartment on Forest Street, still in Detroit.  Louis is now 11 years old and Lucille’s mother, May Rinehart is also living with them.  Chester is listed as a Damage Supervisor for Grand Trunk Railroad.  In 1940, they have moved to a single family home, still on Forest (the move occurred before 1935) and both son, Louis, and Lucille’s mother, May are still with them.  Chester is simplified back to a supervisor at the Railroad company.

Chester passed away on 28 February 1966 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and is buried in White Chapel Memorial Park in Troy, Oakland County, Michigan.  Lucille survived him until 1975 and is buried along side him at White Chapel.

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.
