WEAVER FAMILY-- East Indian ancestry
The Weaver family descends from Richard Weaver, born about 1675, an East Indian who lived in Lancaster County, Virginia. He is first mentioned in the court records and called an "East Indian" on 11 April 1711 when he sued the estate of Andrew Jackson for 400 pounds of tobacco due by bill. He was probably the brother of William and John Weaver, "East Indy Indians," who sued Thomas Pinkard for their freedom on 13 August 1707 [Orders 1696-1713, 176, 183, 262].
