COMPTON/CARSON/WEAVER

Elizabeth Compton married John Carson in Ireland, then came to America in 1847 after John died.
With her 3 sons she traveled to Clinton County, Indiana, where her brother, Arthur, was already in residence.   
Shortly after that, she married Stephen Terwilliger.  Thomas Carson died soon after he arrived in 
Clinton County  but Robert and William grew up, married and raised their families there.   
The Weaver family probably came from Germany but we have not been able to trace them further back than
Augusta County, Virginia.   Phillip migrated westward to Ohio then to Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska and, finally, 
to Colorado.     His son, James Henry, fought and died in the Civil War but left a son, Charles Lemon Weaver, 
who married Harriett Humble.    When their daughter, Florence Rhea Weaver, married Robert Boice Carson, 
son of Robert, the young man who came with his mother to America in 1847,
 the connection between these three families was made.
