Samuel Withers/Weathers was my 5th Greatgrandfather. His son Stephen married Elizabeth McCormack. Their children Priscilla, Seaborn and Marshall were mentioned in this will. Priscilla was my 3rd Greatgrandmother. I had always assumed, perhaps wrongly, that Samuel Big was a son-in-law as stated. There were other Weathers families living in Lincoln Co. at the time. They may or may not have been related. At that time, cousin often married cousin. And since the will states that the other moneys left were intended for the son-in-laws of Samuel Sr. instead of his daughters, it stands to reason that Samuel Big was a son-in-law as stated. But exactly which Weathers family did he belong to? And what daughter did he marry? Another puzzle .... Nathaniel Weathers married Margaret Elliot, daughter of Margaret Weathers and Benjamin Elliot (Margaret was a dau. of Samuel Sr. & Martha Durham). Who was Nathaniel Weathers? A cousin? Related to Samuel Big?
