I am thinking that you are very right in this and since this information was given to me about Sally Weatherlow and John Butler, I am going to set them aside for now until I get proof they are my line. I do have some information that I can share with you however, that might be useful to you. This is from "History of the Original Town of Concord" being the present towns of Concord, Collins, N. Collins and Sardinia. Erie County, New York, by Erasmus Briggs. Picton Press page 841. The following is in parts as I was not made aware at the time I found this that I should be looking at Weatherlow.
"In 1811, Jacob Wilson, who was familiarly known as Uncle Jacob, bought the claim on lot eleven and built the enevitable log hut of that day by the road near the pine tree that now stands in front of John Weatherlow's house. The log house gave way to the red frame house about 1823........
Lewis Wilson sold the farm to Samuel Weatherlow in 1834, and it has since been know as the Weatherlow farm. Lewis Wilson also sold to Weatherlow fifty acres of the north part of lot three, which is now in the possession of his daughter, the widow Simons.
