Question:

Who are Sophia's parents?

Clues:

Samuel Weand baptized a daughter, Anna Sophia Weand, in December 1831. There are three known Samuel Weands who were born in the 1800 to 1810 time frame in this area.

Sophia was living with Catherine Weant in the 1850 census. Catherine is known to have had a son named Samuel.

William Weand, son of Catherine Weant and part of the same 1850 census household, submitted an affidavit attesting to Sophia's marriage in her Civil War widow's pension file. He described Sophia as his mother's maid.

The 1900 obituary of Harrison Weand of Reading, PA mentioned his sisters, Sophia Hauck of Sumneytown and Emma Bernhad of Norristown:

Harrison Weand, aged 56 years, 10 months and 3 days died of paralysis his
residence 221 Jefferson St. after a short illness. He had a stroke of
apoplexy two years ago, from which he recovered, but on Friday last he was
stricken on the pavement in front of his home. He never regained
consutousnes. Mr. Weand was born in Montgomery Co and came to this city 34
years ago. He is a veteran of the Civil War having served in Co. B 93 PA
Vols. And later enlisted in the US Navy, where he served 18 months on the
gun boat Lancaster, but was discharged before his enlistment expired, owing
to an injury he received to his left eye. He was an active member of the
Union Veteran Legion, and was employed at the National Bolt and Nut works
(for a number of years, until four months ago, when he quit do to failing
health. His wife Jane (Hubert) survives besides these children. Samuel I
Weand at home. Salley wife of Harry Wolf, and Annie wife of George W Graves,
all of this city. Two sisters Emma wife of H Bernhard of Norristown and Mrs
Sophia Houck of Montgomery Co.

A Harrison Weant of the correct age was listed with William Weand in the 1850 census.

Emma (Weand) Berhard was born about 1846. She would have been four or five in 1850. She may be the Malary Weant listed with Catherine Weant in the 1850 census.

Sophia's tombstone refers to her as "Annie Sophia Hauck".
