The following obituary for
David Weaver was published in
the "Buchanan Record" newspaper,
in Buchanan, Michigan, on
Thursday, April 30, 1891, page 3:
---
MR. DAVID WEAVER, of Dayton, died
Thursday morning April 30, of
rheumatism, after suffering for
many years. He was born October 13,
1810, in Montgomery county, whence
he moved to Darke county, and from
there to Indiana, where in 1835, he
was wedded to Miss Mary Wiltfong.
The same year he moved to Berrien
county, Michigan, where he has resided
ever since. He was united with the
Dunkard church in 1840, serving as
a minister of that denomination until
the heavy hand of age called him from
his work. He was 80 years, 6 months,
and 17 days old. He was father of
eight children, of whom two have
preceded him over the portal of death,
leaving a dear wife and six children
to mourn his loss.
We may not mourn the eve,
that fitly closed so grand a life,
no begrudge him welcome,
wearied with so great a strife.
