      Elizabeth was 32; the children

      Sarah, 5;
      William, 3; and
      Daniel 1.
      Elizabeth Weaver age 54 was also living with them. I presume that Elizabeth was Elizabeth Myers mother, and her husband was dead.
      Also a George Weaver was a Laborer. My mother had always said that Joseph and Elizabeth had a son named George. This could be the reason for the information she gave to me. It is quite possible that George was Elizabeth Weavers son and Elizabeth Myers sister.
