I have this entry from the old Bible, which was kept in the small trunk part of the family brought to Illinois when they came from NC.
Jott with a ~ over the o: Jott Wilson Weeks married Elizabeth, the berry ink is far from great & the skin paper not to swift either but I can make most of it out. There is a page that states Grandfather was born 1797. Just who Grandfather was I have no clue...
Children of Jott Wilson Weeks & Elizabeth:
John born 16 May 1803 NC
Mary M. born 26 August 1806 NC
Henery (That is how it was spelled in the Bible) born 10 Aug 1808 NC
Wilson born 10 April 1811 NC
Elizabeth born 17 Sept 1813 NC
Nancy "ANN" born 15 Jan 1815 NC
"ANN" married Alpheus Patrick 30 May 1833,
Perquimans, North Carolina.
I do know "Ann" came to Madison Co, Illinois from Perquimans, North Carolina and settled around the Woodburn, Illinois area, sometimes referred to as Round Prairie.
Also here are some other NC Weeks that settled in Madison County, Illinois:

Anyone looking for the Lancaster Weeks family, try Kingsville, Missouri. Lancasters' son, Henry B. Weeks, was buried there in the Walnut Grove Cemetery. I have the obit but the very edge is missing so I can't tell what the rest is.
He left a sister in Kingsville; had 7 brothers, one named G.W. Weeks. Obit said he was buried in the Weeks Family Lot at Walnut Grove Cemetery, East of Kingsville, Missouri. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge there.
Henry B. Weeks was born in the Bunker Hill/Woodburn area, Madison County, Illinois.
"Ann" Weeks Patrick was buried in the Staunton City Cemetery by the bottom road that is along side of the creek, Staunton, Ill,(Stone Is Gone now) Her daughter, Nancy Ann Patrick Butler, was told about them coming from North Carolina & Tennessee with her small trunk and a few belongings.
The cemetery records do not show Ann Weeks Patrick being buried in the Staunton City Cemetery, so this is the only way you'll know it!
The story was passed to me from my Mom, Lorene Baker Jensen. Nancy Patrick Butler lived in this house and many various family obits, Bibles, letters, etc. were kept intact. I thought I'd post the info here for others.
Anyone have anything about this Jott Wilson Weeks family or the Patricks??
