Jacob Weaver 1762-1835 Pioneer 1805-6 Montgomery CO Ohio

This home is the home where Noah Elwood Weaver was born in 1885. This is a recent, 2005 photo by TGW. The family settled on the 110 acre plot when in the early 19th Century, Jacob with his wife Margaretha Gebhart Weaver (1769-1848) came with their family from Pine Grove Twp, Schuykill Co PA. It is said they likely came in a Conastoga Wagon to carry on farming. Phillip, their 5th child, 1706-1851, married Magdelena Gebhart, and farmed the land. Son, Noah Weaver (1835 1929) who married Harriet Weaver 1856-1952 from Miami Co , had two sons, William who was the last to farm the land and my photographer Grandfather Noah Elwood who were born on the farm just up the hill from Miamisburg to the west.
