Weaver Family History
People researching this surname include:
N. Jean Ross
The Jacob Weaver family history has been traced to start with Jacob being born around the years 1785-90 and is believed to have lived in and around Rimersburg, Clarion County, Pa.
The graves of this family have been located in the large cemetery on the outskirts of the village of Rimersburg, Pa. Older Weaver residents have stated that Jacob Weaver, Sr., owned land in Clarion county and as the County was organized all residents of that county were ordered to place their land on record in the county court house. However, since that court house (a frame building) was built, it burned down two years later and all records destroyed. No records therefore are available as to land owned by the said Jacob Weaver, Sr.
Inquiry into the records of deaths buried in the Rimersburg Cemetery give no results, since the records of burials were not recorded in the early days of the establishment of the cemetery. However, considerable checking and inventory of the grave markers therein, has found what seems to be the graves of Jacob Weaver, Sr., and his wife.
