      Noah Weekly, 22, farmer, cannot read or write; Hannah, 20, cannot read or write; dau Rosa, 4; son George, 2.

      News item, "Point Pleasant (W.Va.) Weekly Register," Wednesday, May 7 1890, in its entirety:
      "Noah Weekly, confined in Doddridge County jail, made good his escape last Wednesday evening, when the jailor, a six-year-old boy, was carrying some coal into his cell. Local papers congratulate the tax-payers that Weekly has escaped."

      1900 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (West Union District), enumerated on Jun 7 1900:
      Hannah Weekly, b. Jun (Jan?) 1860, widowed, mother of 6 children (4 still living); dau Rosa, 24, b. Jul 1875; son George, 22, b. Aug 1877; son Charley, 15, b. May 1885; son Erin, 8, b. Apr 1892.dau Etta Goodwin, 2, b. Sep 1897.
      (NOTE: Hannah's widowed marital status is at variance with her obituary, which states that her husband Noah died in 1905. However, the obituary reporting the Dec 1901 death of their son stated that he was the "three-year-old boy of the late Noah Weekley's." )

      1910 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (West Union District), enumerated on Aug 4 1910:

      (NOTE: Aaron's stated marital status appears to be incorrect. Blanche Moore, whom he married in 1916, remarried in 1925 and died in 1977. As Blanche Weekley, she was enumerated in 1920 in her parents' household.) [2]
