Surnames: Weaver-Bovender, Yadkin, Surry, and ? counties, North Carolina
Born in North Carolina in 1836, according to several census records, Charity Weaver married Jacob Bovender in 1859. Charity's son, Thomas Weaver, was born in 1856 in North Carolina. I don't know if Weaver is Charity's maiden name or a married name from a previous marriage. In various records she is listed as "black" or "mulatoo" and Thomas' daugher said he was African American and Native American. I can't find a birth record, previous marriage record or census record for Charity, or a birth record for Thomas. I don't know if before 1859 if Charity and Thomas were free or slaves. By 1860, they were living in Lawrence County, Ohio and two children are listed, Thomas and Mary both under the Bovender surname. Thomas is later found in Athen's county, Ohio and marries Willie Cooper. I could sure use some info to guide me to Charity's family. You can reach me at
