Robert Weaver

Weaver, Robert G.—Enlisted 1 February 1864, 18 years old, as a private in Co. H, 17th

Infantry. Description at enlistment: 5'10" tall; light hair; blue eyes; born in Fulton 

County, Illinois. Transferred to Co D, 8th Infantry. 

Weaver, Robert G.—Civil War Father's Pension Application, National Archives, 

Washington, DC: Robert G. Weaver was unmarried. He died 11 December 1864 of 

chronic diarrhea while home on furlough. Alfred Weaver of Bryant's Station is his 

brother. 

His father was Alfred Weaver, who died on 20 May 1899. His mother was Louisa 

Weaver, who died 14 June 1868, and is buried at Wrights Church churchyard cemetery in 

Lewistown (Fulton) Illinois. In 1889, Jackson Carter, 74 years old of Lewistown, 

Illinois, stated: "I have been acquainted with claimant Alfred Weaver since the year 

1843. He was at that time a very poor man lived within 2 miles of claimant from about 

1857 to 1865, then claimant moved a father way but moved to the same place in 1870. 

Claimant was always in debt. He never did own any real estate in fee in the years 1864 

and 1865. Claimant did not make anymore than a living for his family and from the year

1865 Claimant's personal property began to gradually decrease and for several years past 

has not been able to make a comfortable living." 

"Claimant lived on a farm of 80 acres of land in Buckheart Township, Fulton County, 

Illinois and was farming the same. I think he owns 4 horses and a few hogs and cattle"—

Elisha O. Bryant, 1889. 

"In 1889 claimant's house and household goods was destroyed by fire and no insurance 

on the same (the house was a rented one). The neighbors made up a small amount to 

enable him to purchase some household goods. Claimant has not farmed on an average 

more than 25 acres of land for years since the year 1883 and has each year had to give 1/3 

of crops as rent . . . land farmed by claimant was low and flat and of wet seasons but little 

could be raised on the same."—James F. France, 1889 

"The deceased soldier worked for his father on rented lands from the time he was old 

enough to work until he went into the army and was a good boy to work. This I know 

30personally and the labor went for the support of his father's family."—Abigail Newton, 

1889 

"I have been acquainted with claimant Alfred Weaver from boyhood. We were raised in 

Madison County in State of Old Virginia . . . Claimant was married to Louiza Kirtley in 

the year 1832. Claimant and his wife came with me from Madison County, Old Virginia 

to Fulton County, Illinois, in the fall of 1835."—Newton Walker, 85 years old in 1889.
