About Weaver Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.

The oldest member of our family that I was able to find any information on was Martine A. 
Smith.  He was born in 1814 in the state of Tennessee. If he was living today he would be 205 
years old. He was married to Jane Smith Sr. who was born in Cherokee, Alabama in 1823. If she 
was living today she would be 195 years old.  They had six children.	
James P. Smith		1835	Cherokee, Alabama
Jane Smith Jr.		1838 Cherokee, Alabama
Lucinda Smith		1840	Cherokee, Alabama
Mary Smith		1844	Cherokee, Alabama
Misouri Smith		1846	Cherokee, Alabama
Polina Smith		1849	Cherokee, Alabama

I was able to find this information on the 1850 Census Report.

We are all the descendants of Jane Smith Jr. I was not able to find any information on her 
brother and four sisters.  Also, I was not able to find any information on Jane and Martine 
Smith families leaving that “rock unturned” on what part of Africa we came from.  This website 
contains information on ten generations of our family. 
Jane Smith Jr. had four children. There are no records of her being married or the name of her 
children’s father. Her children's were:

Clara Smith-Lewis      1864 New Orleans, LA
Lucinda Smith		1866 New Orleans, LA
Daniel Smith		1869 New Orleans, LA
Henrietta Smith         1881 New Orleans, LA – May 1942

Clara Smith-Lewis was married to Joseph Lewis. They got married in 1893 and had no children.

Lucinda Smith had four children with Manuel Weaver Sr. and they were not married. Their 
children were:
Adaline Weaver		 14 November 1882 - Unknown
Philip Weaver		 07 June 1887 – May 1971
Alexander Weaver Sr.  07 September 1886 – 29 July 1962
Manuel Weaver Jr.	 30 November 1893 – July 1963

The story has been passed down that all we know about Lucinda Smith is that one day she left 
home and never returned. We been told that her mother Jane Smith Jr. would go around looking 
for her, and she had a distinguishing birth mark on her upper back.  However, she never able 
found out what happened to her daughter.

Lucinda son’s Philip Weaver, Alexander Weaver Sr., and Manuel Weaver Jr. went to live with her 
sister (Aunt) Clara Lewis and (Uncle) Joseph Lewis which is indicated on the 1900 Census 
Report. But Adaline Weaver name does not show on the same paper of the 1900 Census Report as 
her brothers, because she went to live with her grandmother Josephine Bryant who is believed to 
be the mother of Manuel Weaver Sr.  The 1900 Census Report show's that Adaline Weaver was 
living with Josephine Bryant at the age of 14.  Josephine Bryant was born in December 1830 
and was the mother of 7 children. She had no living children in 1900.  Her son Manuel Weaver 
Sr. was born in 1863 and died on 16 February 1895.  Adaline’s birth certificate was not 
recorded until 5 March 1897 which stated her mother and father were never married and both of 
her parents were no longer alive and Josephine Bryant witnessed her birth.   

The 1900 Census Report indicate’s that Aunt Clara Lewis at age 35 and Uncle Joseph Lewis at age 
34 along with Philip Weaver at age 13, Alexander Weaver at age 11 and Manuel Weaver Jr. age 8 
living with her.  They had been married for 7 years and that her mother and father both were 
from Alabama and she was the head of the household.   

The 1910 Census Report indicate’s that Aunt Clara Lewis at age 45 and Uncle Joseph Lewis at age 
43 along with Alexander Weaver Sr. at age 19, Manuel Weaver Jr. at age 17, and Charles Nelson 
at age 14 who is the son of her youngest sister Henrietta Smith living with her.  This report 
indicated that her mother and father were both from Alabama.   

The 1920 Census Report indicated some very important information to all of us.  This report 
shows that a woman by the name of Elizabeth Smith is now living with Aunt Clara and Uncle 
Joseph Lewis at the age of 96. It states that she is the Mother-In-Law of the Head of House 
(Joseph Louis vice Lewis).  If this was correct it should be showing her age as 82, because 
Jane Smith Jr. were born in 1838 (1920-1838=82). This woman is his Grand Mother-In-Mother who 
is our Great-Great-Great-Grandmother.  If you were to do the math, Jane Smith Sr. was born in 
1823; 1920-1823=97. The report state’s her age as 96 because she has not had her birthday at 
the time the information was recorded.  Her name and place of birth is wrong also, Elizabeth 
may have been her middle name. It also states that she from Missouri.  The 1900 Census Report 
record states Aunt Clara’s mother place birth is Alabama which is correct. It has Manuel Weaver 
Jr. still living with her at age 25.  It has Alexander Weaver Jr. name spelled Aleck at age 3 
and Mathew Weaver Sr. age 5 which is once again not correct.  Matthew (not Mathew) is not the 
oldest.  Alexander is the oldest of the two.  Whoever recorded the information for this report 
did not know how to spell their names.  As you can tell a lot of this information was recorded 
wrong.  Just by me knowing enough about the family I was able to tell.  Alexander Weaver Jr. 
and Matthew Weaver Sr. were the first two sons of Loretta Jackson-Weaver and Alexander Weaver 
Sr. Loretta was his first wife. She was born on 17 May 1889 and died on 08 November 1918 at the 
age of 29 of pneumonia.  They got married on 29 June 1914.  Alexander Weaver Sr. got remarried 
to Beatrice Lewis-Weaver.  She was born on 06 February 1904.  They got married on 29 September 
1919.  Beatrice Lewis-Weaver died on 07 July 1968.

The only information we have on Daniel Smith is that his name appeared on the 1870 Census 
Report along with his mother Jane Smith Jr., Clara Smith and Lucinda Smith.  However, the 
Family History Book that is located in Omaha, NE shows that he went by the name of Johnny.

Henrietta Smith-Layton-Nelson-Dobard-Moore-Cook had six children.  She was married to Harry 
Cook Sr. on 04 April 1912.  Her children were:

Charles Nelson Sr.	     06 November 1896
Maud Dobard-Gettridge   09 September 1902 – 28 September 1995
Edward Moore		     1909
Jennie Cook-Batteau	     31 August 1913 –  April 1978
Harry Cook Sr. 		     26 March 1916 – 01 February 1970
Joseph Cook Sr.		     10 February 1918 – 25 January 1976   

Charles Nelson Sr. and his father Frank Nelson left New Orleans in about 1922 and moved to 
Omaha, NE so he can find work.  He did this because times were hard for a black man to make a 
living for his family living in New Orleans.  That is the why the Nelson branch of the family 
now live in Omaha, NE. Charles Nelson Sr. was raised by Aunt Clara and Uncle Joseph Lewis as 
stated on the 1910 Census Report.

Aunt Clara and Uncle Joseph Lewis were the glue that held our family together.  They raised 
just about everyone children if anything were to happen to their parents.  As you can tell for 
reading this story she was the Big Mom of our family. Charles Nelson Sr. oldest daughter Umimay 
Nelson died in Aunt Clara arms one day.  She was feeding her and she choked on a piece of food 
and died.  They open their house to anyone who needed help. The 1900, 1910, and 1920 Census 
Reports shows that other people where living with them that I can’t find any information on how 
they were related to our family. I don’t know how her mother Jane Smith Sr. made it from 
Cherokee, Alabama in 1920 to New Orleans and living with her at the good old age of 96 years 
old.  I don’t know the date Aunt Clara died but do know that she died sometime after 1938. 
Their lived on Desire St. in the 2200 Block in the city of New Orleans, LA.

This is “our family story” please pass it down to the rest of the family from now until the end 
of times. I August Green III started this website in 2004 and it took about three years to get 
all this information together along with other family members. “May God Bless You All”

Cousin August Green III
“The Grandson of  Alexander Weaver Sr. 
and Beatrice Lewis-Weaver.  The son of 
their daughter Shirley M. Weaver-Green”
