Re: Weir in America pre-1700
I have only two Elizabeth Weir/Ware in my notes. My Weir family in Virginia was centered in Rockbridge County. It is not Hugh Weir.
John Weir b. 1690 VAd. 1742
Elizabeth Weirb. 1724VAd. 1819VA
Robert Weirb. 1725d. aft. 1772Amherst Co., VA
+Martha Bell Reidb. abt 1738
Andrew Reid Weirb. 1755(my line)
Elizabeth Weirb. VA
Robert Weir Jr.d. 20 Oct 1794 Amherst Co.
Thomas Ware b. abt 1762Amherst VAd. 26 Dec 1851
Nelson Co, VA
This is not a complete list of kids. I have given you all the boys and Elizabeth. Thomas' name is the only one that is spelled Ware. Amherst Co. became Rockbridge. The family didn't move around much during the time period given here.
Hope this helps...I have several of those brick walls and they are not fun. Good luck.
