Weaver, Remaining Children of Elijah and Mary 1978

August 13th, 1978

This picture was taken of the remaining children of Elijah Daniel and Mary Pearl (Hulse) Weaver.

Left to Right: Martin Tucker Weaver, 56; Selby Granville Weaver, 60; Kenneth Weldon Weaver, 63; Leona Myrtle Marie Weaver Armon, 59; Wilbur Gregory Weaver, 65; Lloyd Wallace Weaver, 67; Robert Wayne Weaver, 69.

Taken at Chuck’s Home. (Chuck was Lloyd.  His home was in Wallowa, Oregon.)

I want to graciously thank my 2nd cousin, Lorrie Goebel Wade for sharing it with me so that I could share it with all of you. What a family treasure!  Lorrie thinks that it was possibly taken after her grandmother Blanche’s funeral. Blanche was one of the Weaver kids as was my own great-grandmother, Edna, who had passed away in 1970.

Shannon Weaver Erm saw this post and sent along two other wonderful pictures taken on the same day.  She went a step further and sent close-ups that really show the expressions on their faces. Enjoy!

Thank you so much, Shannon. These are fantastic!

Elijah and Mary Weaver’s Children Photo

Weaver, Edna in the middle holding the baby

In this picture are the five oldest children of Elijah and Mary Weaver.

Back Row, left to right:  Jay and Ellis

Front Row, left to right: Wayne, Edna, Lloyd, and Blanche

Lloyd was born in February of 1911, so I’m guessing that this picture was taken in the summer of 1912.  That would have made the kids the following ages, (again back row front to left, then front row:  Jay – 7; Ellis – 12; Wayne – 3; Edna – 9; Lloyd – 1-1/2; Blanche – 5.

What a treasure this picture is!  Thank you so much to Lorrie Goebel Wade and Kara Kennison for sharing it!

(Edna is my great-grandmother. The mother of Shirley Marcilee Kennison, who is the mother of my dad, Thomas Alvin Sannar.)

Wilbur Weaver and Francis Armon Photo

Wilbur Weaver is on the left and Francis Armon is on the right.

Francis married Wilbur’s sister, Myrtle.  I bet that was some foot stomping mountain music the two of them were playing!  This was taken in Wallowa county, Oregon, year unknown.  (If anyone knows the year or has some knowledge of their music, please leave a comment!)

This picture is courtesy of Lorrie Goebel Wade. Thank you, Lorrie!

(Wilbur Weaver is my 2nd great uncle and Francis Armon is the husband of my 2nd great aunt.)


“This was before my time ! I do know almost every Sunday after Church we would go down to Myrtle and Francis’ place and they would all play. Aunt Myrtle on the accordion,  Mom would sing and yodel, oh could she yodel, Marsh and Carmen, Lonnie Joe. I know they use to play for dances at the upstairs of the Minam motel. It was all Country music! They all were “self taught” musicians. No one, the men, could read music. They just “picked” it up. That is about all I know. Thank you for this picture. Not only did Francis marry Dad’s sister Myrtle, but Dad married Francis’ sister Charlotte, Dad’s brother Marshall married Francis’ other sister Carmen. I have 7 first double cousins and we all grew up in Wallowa. ”  ~ Lynda Weaver Mattson



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.)
