Jesse Weathers, II
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1805
Death: May 4, 1876

Adapted from an article by Nancy Lee Bailey, Columbus, GA, published in The Heritage of Randolph County, AL, page 294, by Heritage Publishing Consultants, 1998.

In the early 1800's Isham Thomas Weathers brought his parents, Isham Weathers (1780-1863) and Mary Weathers Weathers (they were first cousins), from Fayette Co., GA to Randolph Co., AL. Most of his brothers and sisters joined Isham Thomas Weathers' trek to Randolph Co. around 1838.

One of these brothers was Jesse Weathers (1805-1876), who married Mrs. Martha Elizabeth Sturgis Reeves (1792-1875) on January 24, 1832 in Fayette Co. GA before coming to Randolph Co. He was a tanner and a farmer. At the time of their marriage Jesse was 27, Elizabeth was 40. It depends on which side of the family you talk to as how the romance came about. One side says the widow Reeves, with six children, set her cap for single Jesse who lived with his parents on an adjoining farm. The other side says Mrs. Reeves was an owner of land and slaves and Jesse pursued her!

Jesse and Elizabeth Weathers had two daughters, Mary Ann who married Isham Bailey Lee, and America Jane who married Thomas Valentine Barrett. Jesse and Elizabeth Weathers are buried at Paran Baptist Church Cemetery, Randolph County, AL with their daughter, America Barrett and some of her family.
