I too am looking for information on David's son John Boss Weaver. John also had a daughter Lucena Weaver who was my Great grandmother. I have a photo of Lucena and one of her brothers.

William Owen Wooten
The William Owen Wooten who married Priscilla Collins was the son of:
1. NC: Liberty, Yadkin; 1880 Fed Census, 1 Jun 1880, Dist 226, pg 1, 4/4, lines 14-22.
WOOTEN, Owen W M 49 M farmer NC NC NC

Bedford W M 19 NC
Charles W M 16 NC
William W M 14 NC
Boss W M 12 NC
Robbin M. W M 6 NC

Owen died in 1883 and there are court documents giving all the children's names William is listed as William O. Wooten. Also, on the marriage certificate to Priscilla Collins William O. Collins father is listed as Owen Collins decd.

Collins - Meece Connections
I was just contacted by the great granddaughter of Willis & Lorreta. She is grand daughter of George W. & Flossie Collins Meece.
Love to compare notes as she is just beginning the search (actually her husband is helping her with it.)

RE: Isaac Weaver
Yes you are right on David Landis Weaver and Nancy Acton being Isaac's parents. John was Isaac's brother. I have John having 5 children but I am still working on David and Nancy's children's families. I may have a pic of David Landis Weaver. I am trying to verify still.

Niall of the Nine Hostages
That would be "High King"

RE: Willis Green Collins

Same one. I'm as certain as I can be. I have the marriage books for Pulaski County and have been there researching many times. As for James T Collins' parents,etc., I have sent you an invitation to my tree (THOMAS COLLINS OF IRELAND) on and it spells out many generations previous to James T. What it doesn't tell you is that you (like me) are a direct descendant of Niall of the Nine Hostages, a high Kind in Ireland around 450 AD. I know this because my DNA matches 24 or his 25 Y chromosomes. He had 167 wives and 4.8% of the Irish population today is descended from him. Check the internet on this one - it's fun to know. i have been studying my family tree for 15 years and now have 6500 people on the tree. Good hunting!

Willis Green Collins

I believe you are right about Willis parents. See 1880 Pulaski census where Willis G lives with his Aunt Juretta Weddle. His mother Catharine Jane Weddle married my GG Grandfather James T Collins in 1869. I believe she died in the early 1870's. He remarried in 1872 in Russell County, KY to Emily H McLendon and had 3 children. It's obvious that Willis mother is a Weddle since he probably was named after his Uncle Willis Weddle and lived with his Aunt, but what is perplexing is that he wasn't on the 1870 Census anywhere I can find. Maybe he was actually born in 1870. Just as perplexing is that I can find no information on the death of James T Collins or either of his wives. Anything else you can think of? I will keep looking for Willis in the 1870 Census and look for informatiuon of his Mother's death.

RE: Salyer Family
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner although I may have and forgot that I did! lol I've been keeping pretty busy with research for several people who have asked me to help them research, then my laptop got broken and is in the shop for repair. If a child ever insists on giving you a piece of candy when you really don't want one, make sure they don't set it on your laptop! It may break the monitor. At least I have insurance on it so it's getting fixed.
Anyway, I have Isaiah Salyer and his parents, Zachariah and Elizabeth (Dunn) b: New Jersey d: NC. Milton Claiborn Salyer is Zachariah and Elizabeth Salyer's great, great grandson. If they are related to the rest of the Salyers you listed, they will eventually end up included in my research.
