Weaver Families Descended To or From Early County, Georgia Weavers

Source: Steve Shirah

Descendants of Othniel Weaver

Generation No. 1

1. OTHNIEL1 WEAVER was born Bef. 1750, and died Bef. 12 Sep 1817 in MORGAN COUNTY, GA.. He married (1) SARAH HOLLY CHIVERS Abt. 1778 in Chesterfield County, S.C., daughter of JONATHAN HOLLY and UNKNOWN LEWELLEN. She was born Abt. 1750 in UNKNOWN, and died 1805 in BALDWIN OR WASHINGTON COUNTY, GEORGIA. He married (2) SUSANNAH JONES HUGHEY 1807 in POSSIBLY MORGAN COUNTY, GEORGIA, daughter of ELIZABETH BETSY ADAIR. She was born 1775 in North Carolina, and died 1838 in NEWTON COUNTY, GEORGIA.
    Notes for OTHNIEL WEAVER: Much of the of the information we have on Othniel Weaver was submitted by our cousins Stella Dillahunty and James "Lee" Weaver. They are descended from Othniel and his second wife Susannah Jones Hughey, Isaac Suttles Weaver and Seaton David Weaver. Some is included in the book THE WEAVER FAMILIES OF GEORGIA, compiled by Weaver descendant James K. Bass. Much of the basic information can be found in the various county records.

    Othniel came from Anson county, North Carolina. That county was larger at the time and comprised what is now parts of North and South Carolina. That part of Anson County where Othniel lived became South Carolina.

    He was a patriot during the American Revolution, serving with Elijah Clark's troops. He is called a patriot rather than a soldier because he was (1) a minister of the gospel and (2) a shoemaker for the troops. On at least one occasion he was lowered into a well to hide him from Tories.

    His first known wife was a widow, her previous husband Joel Chivers having been killed in the American Revolution. She had children of her own, she and Othniel had their own children, she died and Othniel married another widow. His second wife also had her own children, she and Othniel had their own children, and Othniel had his children from his marriage to Sarah Holly Chivers as well as his step-children from her. In all, Othniel Weaver had approximately twenty-five children; and those are the ones who lived. He could have fathered more children since the infant mortality rate was close to fifty per-cent in those days.

    Needless to say, Othniel was a busy man. His wives must have also been busy because somewhere he found time to be an elder in a number of churches, and was a shoemaker, though his main occupation was "minister". These were known as Primitive Baptist churches and the ministers/pastors were called elders. There were no "full time" pastors per se. It would be reasonable to assume that the older children in that household shared much responsibility for child-rearing, housekeeping and farming. Of course, due to the span of years over which the children were born, a number of the older children would have been grown and raising their own families while the youngest children were growing up. Still, with the total number of children being twenty-five over the years there should have been a good number of children around the house at any point in time. (That is except when school was in. He had his children either "in" school or "teaching" school.) Othniel's property became a part of Chesterfield County, South Carolina. Records indicate that he owned land there in 1784. Little is known about what transpired in the years between his birth and that year.

    In 1785 his property became a part of Wilkes County, Georgia and Othniel was with Phillips Mill Baptist Church. He was an Elder in that church from 1787 to 1789. We later find him in court records, after 1789 in Baldwin, Wilkinson and Morgan Counties, due to division of counties to make new ones and redrawing of boundaries.

    Sarah Holly Chivers Weaver died about 1805, at which time there were six children who were still juveniles, the youngest of whom was about five years old. Two years later, he married Susannah Jones Hughey, a widow with seven children ranging in age from one to fourteen.

    He was living in Morgan County by 1811 and served as Elder of Holland Springs Baptist Church in Morgan County. He made his will in Morgan County on July 10, 1817. His estate was inventoried on September 12, 1817. He was buried in Jenkins Cemetery on the South River in Morgan/Baldwin County.

    THE CEMETERY IS LOCATED UNDER A STAND OF ABOUT 40 TREES WITH BRUSH AND LEAVES CROWDING PATHS AND VISION. THERE IS ONLY ONE MARKED GRAVE WHICH IS THAT OF "ADAIR" DATED 1735 TO 1815 . HE IS REPORTEDLY BURIED THERE IN THE JENKINS CEMETERY AS WAS OTHANIEL WEAVER. THE UNMARKED GRAVES ARE ALMOST GONE FOREVER EXCEPT FOR PILES OF STONES MARKING THEM FOR NOW.

    A REPLACEMENT TOOMB STONE FOR ROBERT ADAIR HAS BEEN RECENTLY PLACED THERE. THERE IS A PLAN TO PLACE A STONE THERE FOR OTHNIEL WEAVER AS WELL.

    Children of OTHNIEL WEAVER and SARAH CHIVERS are:

    2. i. JULIUS2 WEAVER, b. Abt. 1785, Chesterfield, SC; d. Dec 1834, Early County, Georgia.
    i. HANNAH WEAVER, b. Abt. 1787, UNKNOWN; d. Unknown, UNKNOWN.
    iii. RACHEL WEAVER, b. Abt. 1789.
    3. iv. WILLIAM WEAVER, b. Abt. 1790, Georgia; d. 1864, Randolph County, Georgia.
    v. JOHN WEAVER, b. Abt. 1793.
    vi. LAVINA WEAVER, b. Abt. 1797.
    vii. JONATHAN LEWELLEN WEAVER, b. Abt. 1800.

    Notes for JONATHAN LEWELLEN WEAVER:

    Jonathan's mother, Sarah Holly Chivers Weaver had a grandfather whose last name was Lewellen. That is where Jonathan's middle name came from. The information comes from our cousin Stella Dillahunty. She advises that in the 1940s she and her husband were looking through loose papers in the attic of the courthouse in Wilkes County, Georgia where they also found that Jonathan Lewellen Weaver drew land in the Cherokee Land Lottery of 1832. Therefore he should not be confused with Jonathan Weaver, son of Aaron Weaver (brother of Othniel and uncle of Julius) who was killed by Indians in 1818 below Ft. Gaines.

    Children of OTHNIEL WEAVER and SUSANNAH HUGHEY are:

    4. viii. JANE2 WEAVER, b. 02 Dec 1782, Georgia; d. 1869, Walton County, Georgia. ix. JESEY WEAVER, b. 1806. x. JAMES WEAVER, b. 1808. xi. NANCY WEAVER, b. 1810, POSSIBLY MORGAN COUNTY, GEORGIA; d. 1844, HENRY COUNTY, GEORGIA. 5. xii. ISAAC SUTTLES WEAVER, b. 30 Mar 1812, GEORGIA; d. 24 Oct 1886, LINEVILLE, ALABAMA.

Generation No. 2

2. JULIUS2 WEAVER was born Abt. 1785 and died Dec 1834 in Early County, Georgia. He married NANCY FULGHAM Abt. 1807 in Washington County, Georgia, who is believed to be the daughter of MICAJAH FULGHAM and RACHAEL TAYLOR of Isle of Wight County, Virginia. She was born 22 Oct 1789 in Virginia, and died 28 Feb 1871 in Colmsneil, Tyler County, Texas.
    Notes for JULIUS WEAVER:

    Julius was probably born in Wilkes County, Georgia. His parents were married in Chesterfield, South Carolina in 1784 and in 1787 his father, Othniel Weaver, was an Elder in Phillips Mill Baptist Church in Wilkes County. His mother died in 1805 and his father was living in Baldwin County in 1807. In that year Julius was also living in Baldwin county on property next to Micajah Fulgham.

    He is believed to have been a soldier in the War of 1812. Military records at the Georgia State Archives show Julius Weaver as a Sergeant in the 2nd Regiment of Georgia Volunteers and Drafted Militia, under the command of Lt. Col. James R. Jenkins.

    Records indicate that Julius was in Captain Howard's Company of the Baldwin Volunteer Infantry. He entered service as a private on August 20, 1813 and was paid $8.00 per month. On October 4, 1813 he was promoted to Sergeant and his pay was raised to $11.00 per month.

    In the Georgia-Alabama area the British had made allies of the Creek Indians to fight against the Americans. American enlistments were for 6 months at a time. It is not known how long Julius fought in the War of 1812 but as of March 1814 he was still in the Army.

    Also with this regiment were companies commanded by Captain Adams (riflemen) and Captain Thomas (artillery). One can get an idea of the type of ordeals they faced from the book GEORGIA IN THE WAR OF 1812 by Mrs. Kirby Smith Anderson, Historian, Georgia Society of U.S.D 1812 (pub. 1941), a copy of which is in the Georgia Department Of Archives. The following is from that source:

    "When the War of 1812 broke out he (Capt. Rhett Thomas) became a Captain of an artillery company under Gen. John Floyd in the expedition against the Creeks, and rendered distinguished service at the Battle of Antossee- -marching in front of the right column, his company killed a great number of Indians (said by Gen Floyd in praise of his bravery and later at Camp Defiance engagement,) 'the steady firmness and incessant fire of Capt. Thomas's Artillery and Capt. Adams riflemen preserved our front line. Both of these suffered greatly "

    Capt. Thomas in one of the battles (stated that)- Ezekial Attaway, one of three remaining men saved, seized the traversing handspike from the carriage of the cannon, exclaiming to the two companions "With this I defend this piece (cannon) as long as I can stand. We must not give up the gun. Siebe the first weapon you can lay your hand upon and stick to your posts until the last."

    Gen. Thomas, a skilled contractor and trained to the hardships of Army- life was able to have a rude fortification built at Fort Hill, and superintended the erection of Camp defiance, which was defended with his guns and with the rifle corps and the small cavalry force, against the Indian attack for three hours duration with victory to his forces....".

    Julius's father, Othniel, died in Morgan County in 1817, however may never have moved from his house in Baldwin County. Morgan was taken out of Baldwin County in 1807 (the year Othniel moved his family there) and Julius's son Thomas is buried there. His tombstone indicates he was born in Baldwin County in 1815.

    In the winters of 1818-1819 and 1819-1820, Julius Weaver, Joel Chivers, Jr., and the Sheffields (Isham, Wright, West, Bryan, and Arthur) moved into Early County. Julius had been living in Twiggs County earlier in 1818. It is likely that all these families lived in the Ft. Gaines area at first, Ft. Gaines being a part of Early County at that time. Indian problems continued until 1825 and Ft. Gaines (actually a log fort in those days) provided the only safe refuge in that area. Julius is in the 1820 Early County Census.

    The following is taken from information in the books COLLECTIONS OF EARLY COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY- VOL. 2, EARLY JOEL by Robert Dews and SOME PIONEER HISTORY OF EARLY COUNTY by Joel Perry, any of which will give one a good idea of Early County life in the early days:

    Julius's uncle, Jonathan Weaver (believed to be Jonathan Lewellen Weaver and a brother of Othniel) was killed by Indians at the mouth of Roaring Creek (also called Roaring Branch) about five miles south of Ft. Gaines in 1818. His son Moses (cousin of Julius's son Moses) was with him at the time. His statements are recorded in the records of Indian depravation located at the state archives in Atlanta. They were attacked by Creek Indians who, after killing Jonathan, took his great-coat and saddle, then killed his horse. Also killed in the attack was a Mrs. Liverman. Her daughter, who later became Mrs. Pierce, was scalped.

    Mrs. Liverman's husband, Brown Liverman, was killed two years later on Shackleford Plantation property by his slave. The perpetrator was tried in the inferior court, held in the home of Richard Grimsley, and was hanged near the house. Sheriff William Carr officiated as hangman. Since that time a Negro man was hanged for murdering his stepchild and another was hanged under the authority of Judge Lynch for improper conduct at the house of a widow lady.

    Solicitor General Thomas D. Mitchell fought a duel with Robert Augustus Beall, both men surviving the duel. In 1826, before the sitting of the next court, he fought a duel with a Dr. A. Barber. They fought with "rifled yangers" (pistols with rifled barrels) instead of the usual smooth-bore pistols which were not so accurate. Thomas Mitchell left home early in the morning, "full of hope and declaring his intention to kill the doctor before he returned, seeming to think that there was no chance for the doctor to kill him." Most people thought Thomas would win because Dr. Barber had little knowledge about the use of firearms. "At the second fire, Mitchell fell, pierced through the heart" and died.

    The post office in those days was not a place where you would want to spend much time reading your mail. Early County Historian Joel Perry stated that the building "was used as a post office or rather for the purpose of opening the mail, which arrived on horseback once in two weeks from Pindertown in Dooly County, which was then on a stage line from Milledgeville, Ga. to Tallahassee, Fla. The fleas took such possession of the house that the postmaster (the late Judge Baker) used to open the mail on the grass and straw on the square. They had equally as perfect possession of the courthouse, under which hogs, sheep and goats lodged at their pleasure, unless when roused from their slumbers by some wolf who needed his supper, which was of frequent occurrence. Many a kid was carried from the square to the woods to gratify a wolf's appetite."

    Also in 1826 Julius Weaver settled on the south side of Weavers Creek, according to the book EARLY JOEL. To find that property now, the easiest way for someone not familiar with that area would be to start at Zion Baptist Church in the Sowhatchee community about five miles south of Blakely. Going south past the front of the church, the road soon dead-ends at Damascus road. Turn right , go to the next dirt road and turn left. You would soon cross Weaver's Creek and at that point would be in the approximate middle of Julius Weaver's property.

    Julius purchased the property, one hundred twenty-five acres, for $85 from one John Floyd on June 16, 1826. It is unknown if this was the same John Floyd who was a General over Julius's regiment during the War of 1812, or possibly a son or other relative of his.

    The sale was recorded in July of 1826 in Deed Book 1 of Early County Deeds. The property is described as : "one hundred twenty five acres of land, lying and being in the County of Early in the twenty-eighth district, part of lot number three hundred and forty, dividing said lot of land east and west, beginning in the center of the No.East lines running directly through said lot to the west line leaving one hundred and twenty-five acres each which land are being south of said dividing line and so joining the 26th District line bounded in such shapes and forms as will appear....." goes on to say that the property was originally granted to a Jacob Listrunk by His Excellency the Governor. The deed is witnessed by Henry H. Fulgham. This property became the site of the Weaver Plantation in later years. He also drew land from the land lottery in 1827, said land being in Grimsley's District. It is not known at this time whether that land adjoined the original property of 1826. Julius's son Moses also lived on land adjoining the 1826 property.

    The property is on both sides of the dirt road you are on and ends at the next road south. At that junction, on the northeast corner, was the old Weaver Cemetery. As of the 1990's it has been long overgrown with weeds, or is sometimes planted with crops. It was planted with wheat in the 1970's and probably much earlier.

    Also in 1826 Julius Weaver and Isham Sheffield were appointed Road Commissioners by the court. Julius was elected State Representative in 1829. In 1833 he was a judge in the Early County Inferior Court.

    Julius Weaver died in the winter of 1834 at the age of about 49, of causes unknown at this time. Nancy Fulgham Weaver and their son Moses applied for and were granted letters of administration on January 5, 1835.

    Among the property listed in the administration were: 23 sheep, 15 goats, one sorrell (reddish-brown) gelding, one sorrell mare, two sorrell colts, one brown horse, bridles, bits, 2 saddles, blanket, lockchain, sheep shears, rifle gun, 1 lot guns & barrells, fire dogs, fireplace shovel, 1 cart, set of blacksmith's tools, box of old irons, 2 lots of cooper's ware, 2 kegs, bushel measure, 4 planes (one birch, one metal, one set, and one bench plane), 2 drawing knives, 2 sets of cooping tools, 2 saws, 3 hammers, 4 turning chisels, 7 carpenter's chisels, square & compass, screw-tap, brace & bits, 5 augers, 2 whet stones, 2 hatchets, one broad axe, one club, quantity of chair rounds and backs, one grind stone, 2 mill stones, 1 lot of old books, coffee pot, 5 sitting chairs, 1 frame, 1 trunk, 1 table, 1 knife box, 3 feather beds, bed steads and furniture, 2 spinning wheels, knives & forks, pot rack, one lot of crockery, glassware and one lot of seed cotton. There are a number of other items which are difficult to read.

    The "rifle gun" was bought by William Weaver. Thomas Weaver bought one of the horses, some grubbing hoes and a draw knife; Holly Weaver bought many of the carpenters tools and the chair rounds; Moses bought a saddle, bridles, the 2 colts, cowhides, jug decanter, sheep shears, hammers, cooper's tools and later owned the Weaver Plantation. His mother Nancy took 5 sheep, the sorrell mare, a side saddle, collar harnesses, plows and furniture. She later moved to Texas with some of the Weaver and Fulgham families.

    It has been many moons since the Weaver Cemetery property was in the Weaver family. In the 1920's there were wooden markers on the graves however there is no longer any evidence that there was ever a cemetery there. Buried here should be Julius Weaver, his son Moses who later owned the property, Moses's wife Elizabeth Sheffield Weaver (daughter of Early County pioneer Isham Sheffield), Moses's son William Bryan Weaver, some members of their families, and the Weaver slaves of which there were originally five. (See Slave Schedule for Early County, 1860.)

    The slaves and two of their children stayed with the family after the Civil War. Those remembered by the current Weaver descendants were the mother (name unknown), her daughter Ann who was born about 1855, and her step-son Jess. When they were grown they were called Aunt Ann and Uncle Jess by the Weaver family and they were still with our family in the 1920's. In addition to the household work, Aunt Ann helped with the child-rearing. This information was related by some of those family members who knew her or were living in the household at the time. They are Clytie Weaver Still, Florrie Weaver Barlow, and Mable Weaver Quinby. It is not known at this time when Ann and Jess died but they are also buried in the old Weaver Cemetery.

    It is not known for sure how many of our family are in that cemetery, however Moses's sons Holly and Larkin were not buried there. They are at Zion Church Cemetery. Elizabeth Roberts Sheffield, wife of Isham Sheffield is buried at Zion Church also. It is believed by Isham's descendant Juanita Day Edmondson of Early County Historical Society that they may have recently found the grave of Isham Sheffield in a wooded area on what was once his property.

    As you face the location of the old Weaver Cemetery (no longer visible), looking northeast you see one of few parts of this area of Early County that could be called a hill. It is possibly 50 ft. or more higher than the road. Julius Weaver built his house on top of that hill, according to Joel Perry, who knew Julius, and wrote this information in the above-mentioned book as follows: "Julius Weaver lived upon the hill in what is now an old field, immediately south of Weaver Creek." The book also says that the house was still standing in 1869 but was later taken down (1870's) when Moses moved his family to the north side of Weaver's Creek. It would no longer be necessary to walk uphill to get home.

    Notes for NANCY FULGHAM:

    Sometime between the administration of the estate of Nancy Weaver's husband Julius Weaver in 1835, and before the Texas Census was taken in 1850, Robert Fulgham (born 1799) and his brother Jesse Fulgham (born about 1800) were living in Tyler County Texas.

    As of the 1860 Census for Tyler County, Nancy Fulgham Weaver was living with Jesse in the home of John T. Collier. Nancy Weaver died at Colmsniel (Tyler County) in 1871 and is buried near there in Egypt Cemetery. Her tombstone indicates that she was born in Virginia.

    Notes for JOHN THOMAS COLLIER:

    When Henry Collier died in Damascus, Early Co, Georgia in 1856, the Collier family moved to Tyler Co, Texas. Jane Weaver is the wife of John Thomas Collier list on the 1860 Tyler Co, Texas census,(they have 10 children). However there are two: John T. Colleirs who arrive from Georgia. one is the son of Culbert Collier and This line is from Henry Collier and Nancy Bird daughter of Peter Bird. (Another Henry Collier in Twiggs Co, also has a John T. Collier who moves to Jackson, FL by 1850, his father Henry, dies in 1840;)This family moves to Ratcliff, Houston Co, Texas, and their son Henry (born 1850, GA)married Susan Hall, Laura Allen Nerren, had some 16 children, only half lived to adulthood.... for more details just ask, also it is thought that Mary Montgomery is the wife of John Fulgham, (but not confirmed)

Generation No. 3

6. MOSES3 WEAVER was born Abt. 1808 in Baldwin County, Georgia, and died Bef. 1880 in Early County, Georgia. He married ELIZABETH SHEFFIELD 15 Mar 1832 in EARLY COUNTY, GEORGIA, daughter of WEST SHEFFIELD and SUSANNAH CLARK. She was born Abt. 1814 in Georgia, and died Bef. 1900 in Early County, Georgia.
    Notes for MOSES WEAVER:

    Moses was born in Baldwin County. His father, Julius, is known to have been living there in 1807. Though his temporary location was likely altered during the War of 1812, his family is not known to have lived in another county until 1818 when he was living in Twiggs County.

    In looking at historical or genealogical records in Georgia it is necessary to be careful not to confuse Moses Weaver, son of Julius Weaver, with the Moses Weaver who is believed to be his cousin and the son of Jonathan Lewellen Weaver. There are many references to the fact that Jonathan Weaver was killed by Indians in the presence of his son Moses. Moses also became a Justice of the Peace. Our Moses, son of Julius would have been living in the same area near Ft. Gaines at approximately the same time as the other Moses, and there were a number of Moses Weavers to follow in succeeding generations. This confuses the issue even further for one who may be searching various indexes for that name. To keep them straight, one must look for dates, spouses, children and/or parents in order to know which Moses they have referenced.

    It would be safe to say that both Moses Weavers were terrorized by the Creek Indians between 1818 and 1825.

    Moses's father died when he was twenty-four, his brother Thomas, sisters Jane and Luvina, as well as his mother moved to Texas in the 1850's. Some time later, His youngest son John Fulgham Weaver also moved to Texas. At some point in time before 1850 Moses Weaver became the owner of the Weaver Plantation on Weaver's Creek. He owned five slaves. His real estate in 1860 was valued at $4000.00 and his personal property at $7,000.00. Smaller plantations in that census, in the same area, had Overseers. There are no Overseers shown in Moses's records and there were probably none needed.

    It is unknown how many of Moses's sons fought in the Civil War however at least three of them have military information listed in Early County records. Thomas died as a P.O.W. in a Union Prison in Illinois in 1864. William Bryant Weaver and Holly Hiram Weaver enlisted in the Early Guards (13th Georgia Infantry). They served, among other places, in the Battle of Gettysburg, where almost as many men died in three days of fighting as were killed in the entire Vietnam War. Holly was wounded at Gettysburg and died in Early County at the age of thirty-four. He is buried at Zion Baptist Church Cemetery. William Bryant Weaver served with Holly. He is buried at Cedar Springs Cemetery.

    In 1870 Moses and Elizabeth still had two sons living at home, Othniel age 16 and John F. Age 14. Moses was 62 years old. He did not live until the 1880 Census. Enumeration District 96, Page 2, beginning with line 50 indicates that Elizabeth was then a widow an was living with the family of her son Isham B. Weaver.
