This is a long shot which probably won't really tell you much. I am researching the Rau/Row/Rowes of the Taneytown/Emmitsburg area, Frederick Co., MD area. In one of the Row Wills is a John Weant. Will is dated 1804, Frederick Co. Arthur Row names his daughter Christina, wife of John Weant. That's the extent of it. Nothing of on the name John Weant.
