Happy 149th Birthday, Cousin Jim!

149 years ago, 17 January 1872, James Henry Weaver [my first cousin, twice removed] was born in Monroe, Perry County, Ohio, to William Powell and Catherine Eliszabeth Deaver Weaver. [Yes, a Deaver married a Weaver!] William was the brother of my great grandfather, Lemuel Weaver.
