I am looking for any info on Weekly/Weakley individuals in Nelson County. My ggg grandfather, William Elze Weekly was born in 1812 in Nelson County. I believe his father's name was Abraham as that is the only individual I have been able to find in census records with this last name.

There is a record of a Nelson Co, KY marriage for Abraham Weekley and Nancy Marks on 12 Apr 1802.

Any info on the this family would be appreciated. I have found some records that suggest that William moved on to Indiana and may have been there in the mid 1830s.

He ended up in Missouri where he married Irene Jane Skaggs on 14 March 1841 in Johnson County.

In the 1850 Census William and Irene were in Benton County, Missouri, and moved to Oregon 1853.
