My previous post was in error. Samuel Weisinger (b.1818) was my great-grandfather. He first married his cousin, Mary Ann Rebecca Weisinger (b.1825), daughter of Mathias Weisinger, on January 31,1842. They had five child- ren who lived to adulthood. They were James Edward, Samuel Henry, Robert Alexander, Nancy Carolina and Sarah Ann Frances. Mary Ann apparently died because Samuel married Nancy Ann Weatherly, daughter of Jessie Rush and Lucinda Weatherly, before leaving Alabama for Texas in 1859. His five children by Mary Ann Rebecca accom- panied him. Sam and Mary Ann had six children, namely: John Michael (b.1868), Thomas Ezra (my grandfather b.1870), Walter Coke (b.1872), Mary Sue (b.1884), Ida Rose Ella (b.1886) and Jesse Nicholas (b.1888).
