Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 443, Round Grove Township, White County, Indiana.

"MILTON W. WEAVER was born in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, November 18, 1829, and is the eldest of the eleven children born to PATRICK H. and ALICE (DIMMITT) WEAVER, who were natives of Virginia and North Carolina. PATRICK H. WEAVER, when six years of age, 1809, came with his parents to this state, locating in Wayne County; in 1822, he moved to Tippecanoe County, where he still resides on his farm of 160 acres. He was a soldier during the Black Hawk war, and is now owner of considerable quantities of land in Tippecanoe and adjoining counties, besides his farm. MILTON W. WEAVER, in January, 1853, came to this township and settled on 160 acres of wild land owned by his father. This he partially improved and soon after bought forty acres adjoining. In the fall of 1863, he returned to Tippecanoe County, and enlisted, in December, in Company I, Eleventh Indiana Volunteer Cavalry, and was mustered out in September, 1865, at Leavenworth, Kansas. In the spring of 1867, he sold his place in this township, farmed a year on shares in Tippecanoe County, and then came back to Round Grove (Township) and bought the eighty acres on which he still resides. He also owns a part of the old homestead in Tippecanoe County. September 16, 1852, he married SARAH BALTIMORE, a native of Wayne County, Indiana, who has borne him twelve children, of whom eight are yet living. MR. WEAVER is Road Superintendent of the township, is a member of the Pine Grove Horse-Thief Detectives Society, and in politics is a Republican."
