Looking for a missing link in or around Weaverville, NC.
John H. Weaver b. 28 DEC 1829 Weaverville, NC - no records until marriage in Rutledge, Grainger Co., TN 16 JAN 1855 to Louisa V Bunch. Father to Tollie Weaver Jarnigan, Samuel L Weaver, and Lafayette Bunch Weaver (who is in my line). I have them in the 1860 census in Sweetwater, Monroe, TN and back in Grainger Co. in 1880. He was a "carriage trimmer" in Knox County with his some Samuel in 1890 and died on 2 MAR 1892.
Obviously, John Weaver was a popular name in the area at the time, but the H middle initial is consistent. If not in John Wesley Weaver's direct line, I am wondering about his brother's, whether maybe he would be a nephew or cousin who came to the area a little later than John Wesley. Does anyone have information on the distant family member in the area? or any information of John H Weaver's early life or parents? I'm looking specifically for his parents.
