An interesting story from

"Samuel J. Weeks, Louisa's father, wrote his will 6 March 1845. He died in 1845, date unknown.

"He left at home a wife, Lavina, and two small daughters, Lucinda and Louisa. Lucinda was by a former marriage and she was classified as an idiot. Louisa was by his last wife, Lavina.According to his will which had been contested, he had at least the following other children: Peter, Jeptha and Samuel, Jr.

"He also left two servants, Caleb and Matilda who were husband and wife, and six or seven other slaves. A few years after Samuel's death, Caleb and Matilda had a son and daughter, Jim and Jane. Jane went to Kentucky and Jim went to Nashville, claiming to be a free man, but was brought back by the family to work for them. Caleb and Matilda were willed 20 acres of Samuel's farm, which was located on Bean's Creek in Buncomb near Salem Community of Franklin County, Tennessee. The will directed Caleb and Matilda to care for Lucinda and Louisa until they were grown.

"Lucinda H. Weeks (Weaks) had a Mr. Faris as a guardian and he died and Clem Arledge was appointed her guardian. Lucinda's cousin, Emeline and Emeline's grandmother cared for Lucinda, who lived on one third of her father's farm. Emeline (Hutchinson) married James Noah. They had five children and lived on Lucinda's land and cared for her for 17 or 18 years when in 1877 Lucinda's brother-in-law brought a law suit against James and Emeline Noah to try to get possession of Lucinda and her land. At this time I do not know the outcome of the lawsuit. Emeline's grandmother died before Emeline and James Noah married.

"Samuel J. Weeks' farm consisted of 30 or 40 acres and was willed one third to Lucinda, one third to Louisa, and one third to Lavina after 20 acres had been willed to Caleb and Matilda. "
