Excerpt from Biography at http://www.rootsweb.com/~nychauta/CEMETERY/Weav_cem.htm
"Caleb WEAVER SR was born May 9, 1771 in Coventry, RI, the son of John and Susan (Carr) Weaver. John was a Revolutionary War soldier. Caleb married Hannah FRANKLIN, daughter of David Franklin. She is believed to have died shortly after 1815, but there is no stone for her and perhaps she died before Caleb moved here. He bought land from the Holland Land Company in 1837, but John, David, and Caleb Jr. bought their land in 1822. Caleb SR, was a farmer. He removed from Rhode Island to southwestern Vermont, thence to Saratoga County, N. Y., thence to Genesee County, N. Y., and in 1818 to Arkwright, Chautauqua County, N. Y., then an almost unbroken wilderness. He made a clearing, built a log house, cleared and worked the land and became prosperous. He married Hannah Franklin, dau. of David Franklin. came from Greenfield, Saratoga County, NY where all but the last child of Caleb and Hannah were born. There is a possibility that John, the eldest, may have been born in Coventry. Hannah, the youngest, born after 1811, was born in Arkwright, tradition says, so Caleb must have been here much earlier than his purchase shows on the books.(1837)"

(changed) They all came from Greenfield, Saratoga County, NY where all but the last child of Caleb and Hannah were born.

Event Note

"deposition of Caleb for pension of Hannah’s sister Mary Cummings"


"Another deposition was solicited on 28 Oct 1852 from Caleb Weaver, who was living in Chautauqua, Co. New York. He stated “he was well acquainted with Jacob Cummings before and at the time of his marriage,” having married Mary’s sister, Hannah Franklin 7 Apr 1793.” Caleb was not present at the ceremony but “thinks and believes it took place about one year before his own marriage.” Caleb gave the age of his wife, Hannah, at the time of their marriage, as nineteen. That means she was born in 1774."

"signed an undated, anti-slavery petition, which was probably circulated sometime in 1844 in the Town of Arkwright (Chautauqua County) NY."
