"Daniel D. and Sarah A. Weaver"
From information gathered from old records and relatives still living,
I have put together a sketchy history of the Daniel Darius Weaver family.
I have no birth dates of Daniel or his wife Sarah A. Weaver,
but they were both Kentucky-born.
They were married 1846 and lived in Laurel County, Kentucky.
Children born to them were:
Margaret (Weaver) Brock in 1848;
Mary (Weaver) Day in 1850;
John Weaver (birth date unknown);
William Weaver in 1854;
Elizabeth Weaver in 1860
(Elizabeth died during the trip to Oregon and buried along the trail);
Charlotte (Weaver) McCormack in 1862; and
Elijah in 1865.
Daniel, son John and daughter Charlotte and husband William McCormack
left Kentucky and settled on Alder Slope,
being some of the first pioneers to arrive in the county.
Two years later, in early June, 1880,
son William and his family, and daughter Margaret and her family,
left Kentucky by wagon train on their way to Oregon.
It was probably then that all the other brothers and sisters came west also.
They arrived in Wallowa Valley in late September of the same year.
Not much seems to be remembered about Daniel and especially
Sarah, as she passed away in Kentucky.
However, as quoted by one of her great-grandsons,
she never owned a stove, requiring her to cook over an open fire.
He also remembers the story of Daniel walking from his home
on Alder Slope, to his son's place west of Wallowa to visit,
which was a 20 mile trip one way.
Daniel Darius Weaver and daughter Margaret are buried
in the Weaver plot in the Alder Slope Cemetery,
and all (except John) of his other children, are buried in Wallowa County.
