Happy 152nd Anniversary, Aunt Margaret and Uncle Wesley!

152 years ago, on 18 August 1868, in Hill City, Carroll County, Missouri, my great grandaunt, Margaret Anne Weaver, daughter of Goodliff (nee Gottlieb Weber) and Anne Lane Weaver, married Wesley Wells.  I have not been able to determine the why or when Aunt Margaret migrated from Monroe, Perry County, Ohio, where she was born and raised to Missouri.  Aunt Margaret and Uncle Wesley were the parents of 7 children, only the first was born in Missouri; the rest were born in Kansas:

  1. Fletcher Goodliff (1869)
  2. Bertha Syphina (1871)
  3. Charles Everett (1873)
  4. Chestoria Belle (1875)
  5. Sarah Ann (1877)
  6. Ida Margaret (1880)
  7. Marion Wesley (1890)

The family settled in Onaga, Pottawatomie County, Kansas.  It was there that Aunt Margaret passed away on 21 October 1898.  Uncle Wesley continued until 8 October 1912.

Now with their choice of names for their children, my cousins will probably appear as future blog entries……
