Generation No. 2

2. ABSALOM WEESE (JACOB JR.5 WEES, JACOB SR.4, FRANTZ3 WEISS, HANSS JACOB2, FRANTZ1) was born May 15, 1801 in Randolph Co., (W) VA, and died February 21, 1880 in Randolph Co., (W) VA. He married MARGARET EUNICE MARSTILLER October 09, 1823 in Randolph Co.,VA. (W)Va, daughter of NICHOLAS MARSTILLER. She was born September 16, 1806 in Randolph Co.,VA, and died 1887 in Randolph Co.,VA.

Notes for ABSALOM WEESE:
There is another story of Absalom Weese once having Union soldiers in one part of the house and Confederates in another, the family shuffling back and forth to keep them separated. Also, it is said that several doctors and their families took refuge in the Weese home during a battle, and stories have been handed down about the disposition of the soldiers, they going door to door demanding food, women for their dances, or anything else they felt they needed. The Weese family survived the war intact, and in the 1870 Federal Census Absalom Weese's occupation is listed as a wheelwright. His son Elias, the former war prisoner, was assaulted by Charles Hill of Elliott's Ridge in 1873. For this offense, Hill was fined $1.00. In 1876, the Reverend Simeon Davis married his second wife, Hannah Shifflett, at the home of Absalom Weese. Absalom Weese died in February of 1880. His widow went to Elliott's Ridge and lived with her daughter and son-in-law, Christena and George W. Hill. In May of 1886, Eunice Weese brought a lawsuit against her two sons, George and William Weese. In her complaint she contended that she had been denied her dower interest in several tracts of land conveyed by Absalom Weese in her lifetime. These tracts
were about 21/2 miles from Beverly on Dodson Run, and one, conveyed by Absalom to George Weese, was the one on which Absalom had resided. She contended that she had asked her sons for her dower, but they refused her request. This suit, like an earlier one in the family, appears to have been settled out of court. It is not known if Eunice Weese lived the rest of her life with the Hills. She, like her husband and several of her children, is buried in the small Weese cemetery just east of the present day location of Daniels Body Shop on Dodson Run Road.

"My father was George Washington Hill. And Mom's full name was Christena Margaret Bosworth Weese. Her father was Absalom Weese, my grandfather. He was a farmer and he lived about two miles up from Beverly on Dodson Creek (Dodson Run). His children was Uncle George Weese, Uncle Bill Weese, Uncle Elam Weese, and Elias and Hoy. That's the boys. And there was Mary Ellen, and Maggie, and Liddie (Lydia), and Aunt Celie (Cecelia), and one little girl that had never been named. They called her Sissie. She died when she was just little. And there was Mom (Christena M.B. Weese). And Sarah. I've heard Mom talk about a Jacob Weese, but I don't know who he was.

"I was at Absalom Weese's house once, after he was dead. One of the grandchildren was living there. Uncle George Weese got his farm from Absalom, and Uncle Bill got his farm from Absalom. Park got his farm from Absalom. The Weese Cemetery is on Absalom's farm. Grandma Weese's people (Eunice Marstiller Weese's) came from Germany. Mom had a little bit of a trunk about that long (14 inches) and about that deep ( 7 inches). It was solid wood. Her people brought it from Germany. She had a Bible that I guess was from there. It was before they put the 'S' in the alphabet. It was written in English but 'F' stood for 'S '. I had an awful time readin' that thing. Grandma Weese died when Effie (her sister) Was just little. Effie can just remember her dying.

"Mom remembered a big battle (Civil War) at Beverly. They could hear the guns and cannons. The soldiers would get use of someone's house and have dances and they would ask the girls to come. You almost had to go 'cause if they got insulted it was hard to tell what they might do. You had to keep them in a good humor. She said (her mother) one time they had the Rebels in one room of their house and the Union in the kitchen he family kept them apart. They was through there and come in and demanded something to eat. The people in Beverly had left their homes when they had that battle. The doctors and their wives come out there (to Absalom Weese's) to stay. 
Dr. Bosworth and Dr. Tolbert. There was another child born to Absalom and Eunice named "Sissie", she died as a baby. Absalom had a step father, Peter Buckey, who married Sarah March 1, 1836 following the death of Jacob jr."

Notes for MARY ELLEN WEESE: Mary Ellen Weese sewed for people. She was working at Beverly I think for one of the doctors. She knew she was dying and wanted to go home to die. They wanted her to stay. She said what day and time she would die, and when that day and time came, she died. Mary never married.

Notes for ELAM BOSWORTH WEESE: Uncle Elam Weese married a girl whose first name was Nancy. I don't remember what her last name was. She wasn't from around here. Uncle Elam went to Kansas City and lived and died there. He only come back to visit. They had George. I don't know if they had any more children or not.

vi. MARGARET WEESE, b. April 20, 1838, Randolph Co., (W) VA; d. June 20, 1864, Randolph Co., (W) VA.

Notes for MARGARET WEESE: Margaret A. "Maggie" Weese, another daughter, was courted by a Union Captain during a war. Family legend states that his name was "Captain Ott" or Captain Otto. The army service records at the National Archives in Washington D.C., shed a good deal of light on just who this individual might have been. It seems that one William Otto was enrolled on April 5, 1861, in Company A of the 2nd Virginia Infantry. In August of the same year, his record states, he was an orderly sergeant at Beverly, Virginia (West Virginia), and was at that time commissioned a Captain. He was still at Beverly in September of 1862. Weese family legend states that this "Captain Otto" was infatuated with Maggie Weese, and wanted to marry her. But she, for some reason, was convinced that she was dying (which she did on the 20th of June, in 1864) and she refused "Captain Otto's" advances. The war record of William Otto would seem to fit into this tale, for on the 12th of March, in 1862, from the summit of Cheat Mountain, he wrote to Lt. Col. Robert Moran, commander of the regiment:

"In consequence of my present position having become unpleasant beyond my powers of endurance, l hereby tender my immediate and unconditional resignation of the commission I now hold as Captain...and ask that you accept the same."

Brigadier General Milroy recommended acceptance of the resignation and Otto was given an honorable discharge.

vii. HOY M WEESE, b. Bet. 1840 - 1843; d. September 08, 1928, Randolph Co., (W) VA; m. HARRIET S. FLINT, March 27, 1880, Randolph Co.,WV1; b. December 15, 1855, Randolph Co.,VA; d. June 14, 1928.

Notes for HOY M WEESE: also have birth at 1843 "Faded ages"
Two tenths of a mile past the site of the Collett place, is the driveway to the home of Rev. Robert Lowther, of the Hart Chapel Church and Academy. To the right, just past that, can be seen the old house that was once occupied by the family of Hoy Weese. This section of the road commands a spectacular view of the mountains and valleys to the west, a view that would have changed little since the turn of the century, if one could ignore the communities and highway that have come into the valley relatively recently. Hoy Weese was raised on his father's farm on Dodson Run, and his wife Harriet "Nettie" Weese was the actual owner of the property on the ridge. She had been married and divorced before her marriage to Weese, and her former husband, Zachariah Taylor, went west. She was a daughter of George Flint, who was the first postmaster at Glady. She married Hoy Weese in 1880, and in 1885 they lived on Glady Fork where Weese owned no property, but had one cow, three calves, four sheep, three beds, and was seven or eight miles from the nearest school. This came up in a suit in court over custody of Clinton Taylor, a child of Harriet Weese by her first marriage. In 1887 she purchased the Elliott's Ridge place from Marshall Chenoweth, getting 20 acres for $50.00. In 1893 she purchased 11 1/2 more for $100.00. Hoy and Nettie Weese had several children of their own, among these being Asa, Elam B., Cynthia, and Louida. Aries Hill later occupied the Hoy Weese place and Weese returned to Glady Fork. Uncle Hoy Weese married Nettie Flint. They lived just up the road from us (George Hill's, Elliott's Ridge). They had Acie, and Elam, two boys, and two girls, Cynthia and Louida, Lodie they called her.

viii. LYDIA A WEESE, b. 1841; d. September 08, 1928, Chicago, IL; m. HARVEY W. MARTIN, October 13, 1861, Randolph Co.,WV; b. 1837.

Notes for LYDIA A WEESE:

Notes for HARRY W MARTIN: Another daughter of Absalom Weese, it is said, married a soldier, this one being Harry W. Martin. Both of these women lived out their lives with these men.

"Aunt Liddie Weese married Harry Martin, and they lived in Chicago. He worked in a factory. He made good money. He gave all the family watches as gifts. He was a soldier stationed here in the Civil War. I don't know what side he was on. While he was here he got acquainted with Aunt Liddie Weese and she married him. She had a boy, Clifford Martin, was about five years old when Harry got back from the war. They had three boys, Clifford, Cale, and Elwood. They didn't have any girls."

Notes for CECILIA WEESE:
"Aunt Celie Weese married Bill Bonham. He was a soldier in the Civil War too. Aunt Celie met him while he was here. After they got married they lived around here for awhile, and then moved to Charleston (111 Randolph Street). They had Caleb and some other boys. Their girls was Lou and Stella and Lena. They was in nursin' school. They wanted me to come down there and go to school with them, but Mom wouldn't let me. If I had I probably never would have married.

William H. Bonham. He was a native of the Charleston area who had entered the service at Aultz, Virginia, in July of 1861, being mustered in at Charleston in Company A, 8th Regiment, Virginia Volunteer Infantry This unit later became part of the West Virginia Cavalry. In the summer of 1862, he was stationed at Cologne, in Mason County, Virginia ( West Virginia). In August he was detached for recruiting service. The following summer he was on daily duty as provost guard. In February of 1864 he re-enlisted as a veteran volunteer at Martinsburg.

Family legend also states that Elias Weese was captured by Union troops and taken to Camp Chase at Columbus, Ohio, as a prisoner.

"Uncle Elias Weese married Helen Griffith. She was always jolly and full of life. She was a sister of my Grandmother Hill and Charlie's (her husband's) Grandmother Hill. They had Bruce and Orville and Bernard and Dora. Uncle Elias didn't own anyplace. He lived around. One time he lived in the valley between Elkins and Beverly. During the Civil War he was working on his farm up on the hill from Beverly. They (soldiers) saw him and thought he was a spy that carried information back and forth, and they arrested him. They took him to Camp Chase until after the war. While he was there he caught a disease and almost died. He died at home. Farmed on Kings Run and carpenter."

Notes for LEONARD F WEESE: On the left side of the road, at about one and six tenths miles past the site of George Hill's family home, is where once was the home of the Leonard Weese family. Weese was a brother-in-law of Paul Louk, he being married to Louk's sister, Nellie. It is in this area that the ghost of Paul Louk is reputed to roam. Also in this area, but across the road, the homes of French Kittle and Levi McQuain once stood. McQuain was married to Mary, a daughter of Hiram Hill. On the left side of the road in this area, if one is facing south, is a large pond. A little below it is an old chimney, the remains of the cabin of Pete Weese. Below there the remains of a road can be seen to the left, if one looks closely, and it leads up the hill to the east, to the Weese Cemetery. This burial ground is all but forgotten now, but in it are the graves of Leonard Weese and his wife; Charlie Weese and wife Amelia; Howard F. Weese; Eddie Blanche Teter, daughter of Leonard Weese; Emma E.Weese, wife of Mart Weese; another Howard Weese, who died aged 2 days; Richard Lee Weese, died also in infancy; Hoy Weese, his wife Nettie Weese, and their son Asa Weese. On September 16, 1879, a post office called Files Creek was opened in the area, with Johnson Pritt as postmaster. It was discontinued on October 31, 1881. Pritt was also surveyor of the highway on the Beverly and Circleville Road on June 30, 1883, when he was excused by the county for some illness. He was replaced by Leonard Weese. Weese was allowed $75.00 out of the county levy for work on the road in March of 1886. Len Weese lived across the creek (Hill Run) from the road on the left. His house burned down. I went there the day it burned and ate sauerkraut out of a barrel that had burned off. I helped carry him to his grave. One of the hardest things I ever did. We went almost in a straight line from his house to the grave. His house was this side of the divide. We carried him to the grave by hand. Most of Mart Weese's children went west with their grandmother.

"Levi McQuain lived where French Kittle lived last. Past the small house of Pete Weese. (Below the pond). Turn right. When he (McQuain) moved to the Mount Vernon area he sold that place to French Kittle. He (Kittle) was married to Len Weese's daughter. When their youngest child was born, French's wife died. Len Weese raised her. Grace is her name. She is living (July 26, 1984)."
