Mrs. Weder was born, March 13, 1848 to Mr. and Mrs. John Metz, in Hancock Illinois; in the year 1851 (*1870) was married to Daniel (*David) Weder.
There were nine children born to this union and also two others by a former marriage and 41 grandchildren mourn the loss of a wife, mother, and grand parent.
