I live about 2 miles from Ryan Chapel and I find it odd that your Weeks married a Thompson as well. My Robert Weeks' son, James Zedock, married Sarah Jane Thompson who I believe to be Nancy Ellen Thompson's (my mother's ggrandmother)sister. Haley, James' brother, married Nancy Ellen Thompson. Nancy and Sarah were living in Louisiana in 1860 but in seperate household, one an Evans and another, Daniels. Mom mentioned when I was younger that their family were killed in an Indian raid but they escaped with a older girl but then I read a different story and I would love to know the true story. Mom mentioned that the girls, she thought were raised by Indians.
If this seems strange try to remember that there were two sets of Weeks in mom's family and the big thing was there was no talk regarding the past. In fact, once mom told me that they left for Texas she'd overheard due to some sort of incident but did not mention from where or what the incident was.
