Excerpt from Historical and Biographical Annals of Berks County Pennsylvania

The following excerpt comes from page 965 of M. Montgomery's Annals [2]

On Sept. 26, 1872, Mr. Weaver was married to Sarah Ellen Spotts, born April 18, 1854, in Chester county, who died at Morgantown, March 15, 1905, and was buried in the Caernarvon cemetery. Six children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Weaver, as follows: Mary F., born Nov. 4, 1873, is a trained nurse; Laura M., born June 27, 1875, is also a trained nurse; Walter, born Aug. 1, 1878, is living with his father at Morgantown; Alice K., born Jan. 2, 1881, married in June, 1907, Morton Edwards, and lived in Morgantown; William C., born Jan. 29, 1885, is a student at the State College; and Katie, born Aug. 6, 1892, lives with her father at Morgantown. Mr. Weaver is a stanch Republican, and has filled the offices of auditor and judge of election. He is a member of the Lutheran Church, and his family of the Morgantown Methodist Church. He has been an industrious, progressive man, and has done much toward advancing the interests of Morgantown, where he has built three houses, in one of which he lives, the others being sold.

Analysis

There are some discrepancies in the birth year of Kathryn Weaver. The Jablonski Family Bible [1] records the date as 6 AUG 1893. However, this is inconsistent with her recorded age on every known census.

In the Jablonski Family Bible [1], the recorded parents of Kathryn Weaver are "Henry Weaver" and "Sarah Ellen Spotts, b. 18 APR 1854". These parental names and dates are consistent with a Katie Weaver recorded by Morton Montgomery [2] whose birthday is 6 AUG 1892.

Given the evidence, the correct birth year seems to be 1892 and the Katie Weaver recorded by Montgomery seems to be the same Kathryn Weaver who is the mother of Laura Marian Depue.
