Photos contributed 15 Feb 2004 by Arne H Trelvik for Terri Scrogham who writes:
"I live in Oregon. Aaron's son John Weaver moved here to the Salem area some time after all his kids were born. He died in Lebanon Oregon and is buried in the Pioneer Cemetery there. I think that is a neat fact. There is a difference in stories of the history of this side of my family and whose kids were whose. I am trying to figure it out and find proof of Aarons kids and his dad's (William Henry)."

9 Jul 2004: See photo of Eliza French Lollar Tingle, daughter of Ann and Samuel French.

27 May 2006: Sandy Inklebarger writes
"Aaron Brandenburg 1761-1825 & Nancy Ann Brandenburg 1766-1846 are my 4th maternal great grandparents. I figured out who Eliza Ann Brandenburg is. She is Aaron & Nancy Ann Brandenburg’s granddaughter. Eliza Ann’s parents are Jacob b: 17 Aug 1792 d: probably before 1840 & Mary (Worley) Brandenburg b: 19 Feb 1786 d: 19 Feb 1857. Eliza had 5 siblings. Jacob & Mary are my 3rd maternal grandparents; Eliza Ann is my 2nd great grandaunt. I have the date Eliza died as 18 Sep 1856 and that she is buried at Pioneer Cemetery, Lebanon, Warren, Ohio. It could possibly have been that the 13 was mistaken for an 18 or vice versa. "
