Does anyone have information on Lucetta Weiler, born about 1815, died 17 Nov. 1889, both in Longswamp township, Berks County, Pennsylvania?The following are some details.
I am a descendant of Andreas Weiler, who was born about 1725 in Switzerland.He married Annie Maria Motts, also of Switzerland and moved to Longswamp township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, where they had 5 children: Andreas (or Andrew), Catharine, Christina, Barbara, and John (or Johannes).The elder Andreas Weiler died in Longswamp on 15 Nov. 1792.
The son, John, married Maria Margaretha Schall, who was born in Berks Co., Pennsylvania on 24 Feb 1762.John died in Nov. 1838 and Maria in Oct., 1851, both in Longswamp township.John and Maria had 5 children: Andrew (or Andreas), John (or Johannes), Anna Maria, Esther, and George, all in Longswamp.
The son, John (born 5 Dec. 1787 and died 22 Mar 1835), of John and Maria Margaretha married Maria Haas (born about 1789) on 2 Apr 1809.They had 9 children: Nathan, Elizabeth, Weida, Mary, Lucetta, James, Sophia, William Charles, and John Peter, all in Longswamp.
I am a direct descendant of the daughter, Lucetta Weiler.In the 1850 census, she is listed as the head of the household at the age of about 35.Her mother, Maria Haas, is listed as living with her.Also, Lucetta has a son, Charles W. Seader (born about 1842), living with her.I have been unable to determine who was the husband of Lucetta and the father of Charles.Since John Weiler and Maria Haas had 8 other children besides Lucetta, maybe a descendant of one of these children knows the answer.
