Please allow me to add a few comments and a couple of subtle corrections.And also interject my family in this!
The Weaver girls were the daughters of David Weaver and Frances (Fannie/Fanny) Womack.Earlier researchers have David Weaver as Elijah David Weaver, but there's not one shred of evidence of his name except David Weaver.
David Weaver, born ca. 1785, was the son of one of the Weavers who died in White Co., TN, and I tend to agree with earlier researchers that Samuel Weaver and Nancy Hutson were his parents.Samuel Weaver said in his White Co., TN Revolutionary War pension application that his papers burned in his son, Elijah's house fire."Someone" made him Elijah David Weaver in their research!
Larkin Womack and Frances Womack Weaver's parents were David Womack and *possibly* a Cherokee mother.David Womack was the son of Jacob Womack and Sarah Johnson.
From as early as 1758, Jacob Womack and Samuel Weaver's parents lived in the same vacinity.Samuel Weaver said in his Revolutionary War application that he was born 9 Sep 1759 in Halifax Co., VA.

Both Samuel Weaver, who married Mary Ann Bollinger, and Samuel Weaver, who married Nancy Hutson, were on Jacob Womack's military payroll at Womack's Fort in 1777 in what was then Fincastle, VA, but became Sullivan Co., TN.
Both Samuel Weavers and Jacob Womack were on the 1790 census in Pendleton District, SC.
Court records show Jacob Womack, his sons, including David Womack and David's son, Larkin Womack, Samuel Weaver (married Nancy Hudson) and Benjamin Weaver living in White Co., TN in the very early 1800s.A Benjamin Weaver was a magistrate and founder of Sparta, White Co., TN in the early 1800s and then disappeared from the area.
The sons of Jacob Womack and Sarah Johnson moved from White Co., TN to Lawrence Co., Arkansas, Territory of Missouri in 1816.This area was later Randolph Co., AR.Jacob Womack's son, Johnson Womack said in his Revolutionary War pension file that he moved to Lawrence Co., AR, lived in Washington Co., AR and then Madison Co., AR.He died in Madison Co., AR ca. 1838.
Jacob's grandson, Larkin Womack, born 1785, and his granddaughter, Frances Womack, born ca. 1780, and her husband, David Weaver moved from White Co., TN to St. Louis at the same time.It is not known if they made the move together.
Larkin Womack married Frances Basye abt 1814-1815 St. Louis, MO.Frances Basye Womack married 1st Jonas Quick, sister of Susannah Quick Carrico, who was the stepmother of James Q. Carrico.
David and Frances Womack Weaver's daughter, Matilda married James Q. Carrico 14 Dec 1814 St. Louis, MO
In St. Louis John Walter Basye filed a civil suit against his son-in-law and daughter, Larkin Womack and Frances Basye in 1818 and the Womacks were living in Howard Co, MO.
David and Frances Womack Weaver's daughter, Mary "Polly" Weaver married Aaron David Allard 30 Jul 1820 Howard Co., MO.He was the son of Mary Burleson and David Allard.Their marriage record shows Polly Weaver married David Alard (sic).There's no evidence his name was Aaron Hardin Allard.
Larkin Womack and Frances Basye were in Crawford Co., AR in 1830
Benjamin Weaver born ca. 1785, lived one house from Larkin Womack in 1830 in Crawford Co., AR.He was a Justice of the Peace in Crawford Co.It was written that he was one of the wealthiest men in that area.His researchers have indicated he was from White Co., TN.
Larkin Womack and his nephew, Larkin Weaver, son of Frances Womack and David Weaver were on an 1831 Crawford Co., AR Tax list. Larkin Weaver and his 2nd wife, Susan Harrison were the parents of Emma Susan Weaver Rodgers.
The large estate of a Weaver was also on the 1831 Crawford Co., AR Tax list.It is assumed by his researchers that was an indication that Benjamin Weaver had died.
Mary Burleson Allard and her son, James Burleson Allard and her daughter, Lucy Allard Pigman were in Crawford Co., AR in 1830.James Burleson Allard married David and Frances Womack Weaver's daughter, Nancy Weaver and they lived next door to his brother and her sister, Aaron David Allard and Mary "Polly" Weaver in Platte Co., MO in 1840.James Burleson Allard died in MO, on the trip to TX or after they arrived in TX.Nancy Weaver Allard married Jonathan D. Hunt 25 Apr 1850 Hopkins Co., TX.Nancy Weaver and James Burleson Allard were the parents of Frances Jane Allard Hudson.
There is no way that Zoah Allard could be the son of James Burleson Allard, son of David Allard and Mary Burleson.I don't know who the James Allard was who married Elizabeth Parsons 20 Jun 1838 Cass Co., MO.Perhaps he was David Allard's (married Mary Burleson) supposed brother, Hardy Allard's son.James Burleson Allard and Nancy Weaver's daughter, Frances Jane Allard Hudson was born March 1835 and they were living in Platte Co., MO in 1840.
Frances Womack and David Weaver's granddaughters, Emma Susan Weaver Rodgers, (and Mary Burleson and David Allard's granddaughter), Frances Jane Allard Hudson filed claims ca. 1907, based on their grandmother, Frances Womack Weaver being half Cherokee.They both said their grandfather was David Weaver....not Elijah David Weaver.They both said Larkin Womack was Frances Womack Weaver's father.Apparently Larkin Womack's name was mentioned in the family over the years.
There was only one Larkin Womack in that era and that was my 3rd great grandfather, Larkin Womack, born 1785.I descend from Larkin Womack and Frances Basye through their son, James Baldwin Womack.
