Charlotte “Lottie” Weaver Photo

Weaver, Charlotte Lottie

Charlotte “Lottie” Weaver came out west with her family from Kentucky in 1878.  Lottie settled on Alder Slope and later married William McCormack after the death of William’s first wife Ida.

Lottie raised her family and was very religious. She died in the home of her only daughter of a stroke at age 77.  Lottie is buried in the Alder Slope Cemetery in Enterprise, Oregon.

[Obituary of Charlotte Weaver, daughter || A clipping from the ‘Stockman Enterprise.’ of Alder, Oregon, reporting the death of Charlotte McCormack, daughter of Darius Weaver… “Charlotte Weaver was born in Laurel County, Kentucky, Nov 9, 1862, the daughter of Darius and Sally (Morris) Weaver. Her mother passed away when Charlotte was nine years old. In 1878, her father came to Oregon and settled in Alder, and the next year sent for his unmarried children. Charlotte and her two older brothers made the trip by wagon, entering the Valley over the old Smith Mountain Road.”]

(Lottie is my 3rd great-aunt.  She is the daughter of Darius and Sarah “Sally” Weaver and the sister of Elijah Daniel Weaver.)
