WEEKS, CHARLES

 

Obituary of Charles Weeks, Fort Wayne Newspaper of April 1st, 1842

 

ANOTHER HERO GONE…………Died on Monday last, MR. CHARLES WEEKS, aged 82 years, a soldier of the Revolution.  He was buried with the honors of war, and his funeral was attended by a large concourse of our most respectable citizens. 

 

Mr. Weeks was born in 1759, on the South Branch of the Potomac in Upper Virginia.  At the early age of 16 he enrolled himself in a company commanded by his father, and remained in the service of his country, during the whole of that eventful struggle which established our independence.  He was actively engaged most of the time, and was present at many of the engagements recorded in the history of that period;  he was part of the time, under the immediate command of the immortal Washington, whom he frequently saw, and of whom he delighted to speak.  After the revolutionary war he was frequently engaged with the Indians on the frontier of Virginia and Kentucky. 

 

In 1800 he moved to what is now Athens County, Ohio, at that time containing only six families;  he afterwards lived in Miami and Shelby counties;  and was always among the foremost to take up arms to repel the savage and protect his neighbors.  He was at the surrender of Hull at Detroit in 1812, and was there made prisoner of war. 

 

He was a genuine pioneer, and exhibited all the best traits of character for which the backwoodsmen are noted;  he was frank, honest, brave, open hearted and unbounded in his hospitality;  and having always lived on the frontier, this last trait was frequently exercised.

 

When the settlements began to thicken around him, he moved into Indiana and settled in this neighborhood, on the Maumee River in 1822.  About ten years afterwards, though upwards of 70 years of age, he found himself “crowded” by new settlers and again moved into the woods, and settled on a branch of Cedar Creek, which is called after him. 

 

Mr. Weeks was a true patriot;  and though he had frequently risked his life in defense of his country, he could not be prevailed upon to accept of “the pension” granted by Congress to the soldiers of the Revolution.  What a lesson his conduct affords to the selfish politician of the present day.  He had enough to support himself and family with industry and economy, and more he did not covet.  He was – as such men mostly are, a firm and consistent democrat, and stood true to his faith, when so many of his neighbors were led away by the enthusiasm created in behalf of a military chieftain and western man for the Presidency.

 

The deceased has left a large family to lament their loss.  He suffered much in his last illness;  but bore his afflictions with the firmness and fortitude which always characterized him.

WEEKS, CHARLES

 

So far the exact family of Charles Weeks, Sr. who was the early pioneer in Perry and Eel River townships, Allen Co., IN has not been proven so the following is a “possible” scenario for his family in this area.   Perhaps this will be seen by another Weeks family and they can shed more light on this.   In the meantime, use what is here as stepping stones to finding the truth.   So far we  know that Charles Weeks, Sr. was born in Virginia about 1759, must have married there;  moved to Athens, Ohio, about 1800 and also lived in Miami and Shelby counties in Ohio.    About 1822 he settled on the Maumee in Indiana and felt he was being “hemmed in” again and moved about 1832 to a branch of Cedar Creek.   In 1779 he was reported to have been a 2nd Lieutenant under the command of General George Washington.     In 1824 and 1825 he was found to be serving on a grand jury.

 

From the information we have, it appears that this was his family……..but not proven:

            +  Jane Unknown

                   If Jane was the mother of the children, then probably was married in VA and she

                      would have been his first wife.   Need information on Jane.

Second wife of Charles Weeks, Sr.?

Elizabeth  (as found on an old abstract of his land)  (Elizabeth may have been a

                   late wife, as most family genealogies give JANE as the mother of the children)

       We find Charles Sr. signing with Elizabeth, his wife, about 1841.  He died in

       1842.  Is Jane perhaps Elizabeth Jane??

 

 

 

We find another Weeks family in DeKalb County who might be relatives but seem to be from a different part of Virginia.   Does anyone recognize them??

Bureau of Land Management shows that James Weeks purchased land in DeKalb Co, IN from the Government.  He purchased 2 different properties………one of 80 acres and one of 160 acres 1837 and 1838.   They were as follows:

 

S half of NW quarter, Section 2, 33N – 14E of 80 acres,  July 20, 1837  

SW quarter of Section 32, 34N – 14E of 160 acres, August 20, 1838

 

James says he is “of DeKalb Co., IN” 

 

We also find that a John Weeks purchased land also in DeKalb County.  He says he is from Miami County, Ohio.   He purchased 80 acres  E half of the SE quarter in Section 26, Township 34N of Range 13 E.   This was dated August 20th, 1838 and signed by Martin Van Buren.   Perhaps he was the brother of James M. Weeks. 

 

On the day that James made his first purchase, July 20, 1837 a Luther B. Weeks also made 2 purchases of land in DeKalb Co.   Luther says that he is from Trumbull Co., Ohio.  He purchased nearly 160 acres in Sections 33 and 34.

 

You will find copies of these documents at the Bureau of Land Management if you wish to have them.  

 

From a biography of James M. Weeks found on the DeKalb County Website (check our links) you will learn more about this family.  It is noted that James father, John, and mother both died before James came to Indiana, and that he was staying with an uncle.    Is it possible that Charles Weeks, Sr.  was the uncle???
