My sources (primarily my grandmother) tell me there were 7 Weicker brothers that came over from Germany (Black Forest region) in the late 1800's. My great-grandfather lived in Rhode Island and attended the Rhode Island School of Design (now a part of Brown University) and helped design and develop torpedoes at the submarine base in R.I. during WWI. His son, Raymond (b. 1910), attended Lehigh University and worked at Bethlehem Steel most of his life. My father, Richard (b. 1941) now lives in Manlius, NY. I live in Arlington, VA.
