This is Heather Nemanic, I just found your message, and thought I would get back to you right away.
Any how, like you, my Great Great Grandfather was ADNIRAM WEEDMARK. My Great Grandfather was ADNIRAM'S son JAMES ANDREW WEEDMARK. JAMES was married to JENNIE RYAN and their son RAY NATHEN WEEDMARK was my Grandfather.
It is great to hear from another WEEDMARK family member, as they are not easy to find. I have traced the WEEDMARKS back to ADNIRAM'S father and mother, they were FREDERICK WEEDMARK and SUSANNA FRASER. FREDERICK was born around 1772, but I have yet found his place of birth, he was Sweedish but I do not know if he was born in the States, or the old country. He was in Canada around 1815 as he was on the assessment rolls of Marlborough Township, Carleton county, Ontario for 1815 and 1819.
From what I gather he and his family were some of the earliest settlers in the Marlborough area, so they might have been in that area for some time before 1815.
FREDERICK and SUSANNAH had five or six other children besides ADNIRAM, with FREDERICK JR. born in Marlborough Townshipin 1815 or 1816.
PHILEMON was the oldest of FREDERICK'S and SUSANNAH'S children his birth was around 1814, but if he was born in Canada is unknown.
My Great Grandfather, JAMES ANDREW was born in Marlborough Township in 1859. He left Canada sometime between 1877 and 1879. He married JENNIE RYAN in 1879. JENNIE was born in Vermont in 1857.They, I have been told were married in Illinois, but I have not found any proof of that as yet, so I will keep searching on that point. JAMES and JENNIE moved to Porterville Calif. between 1880 and 1889 as that is where all three of their children were born with GEORGE RYAN WEEDMARK born in 1889, my Grandfather RAY NATHEN WEEDMARK born in 1893 and CHARLES WEEDMARK born in 1896.
RAY NATHEN married ANNIE W. GOETZ in 1917.
RAY and ANNIE moved to Los Banos, Calif. around 1918. All of their children were born in Los Banos, and they lived there untill ANNIE died in 1973. RAY moved to Le Grand, Calif. to live with my Aunt BARBARA, RAY and ANNIE'S youngest child untill his death in 1983.
My mother CHARLOTTE W. WEEDMARK was RAY and ANNIE'S third child, she was born in
1923, and died in an Auto accident in 1998. RAY and ANNIE'S oldest child was RAY NATHEN JR. he was born in 1918, and DONALD G. WEEDMARK was their second child who was born in 1919.
My self, I have four children, two boys and two girls. My oldest is thirty-three, and my youngest is twenty-six.
I live in a small town in the Calif. Central Valley, Which has made some of the searching for RAYS roots a little easier as Porterville and Los Banos are both within driving distance.
Agian, it is great to hear from another WEEDMARK, and I will be more then happy to exchange any and all information I have on ADNIRAN and the rest of the WEEDMARKS with you, and I would be more then greatful for any information you have.

Be Safe, Heather Nemanic( your cousin)
