In Reply to: Wire/Weyer of Morris Co., NJ by Rick Novak of 120

Hi Rick. I'm a descendant of Conrad Wire of PA. The first Conrad Wire that died in 1791, NJ. His children were John, Conrad #2, William, July, Eve, Ann & another Daughter- name unknown. Conrad #2 was my anscetry grandfather who was born in 1737 in NJ and married unknown wife. Conrad had moved to Beasmville, Ontario, Canada in 1796. He had 5 children for sure. Robert, Conrad #3, Mary, Peter, & William. He may have had more children in between Robert & Conrad #3 because of the age difference there and the children may have died. I don't know for sure but there is such a gap . Robert was my line, and he was born in 1755, NJ. But he move to Niagara-on-the-Lake in 1793 with his wife Sarah & 8 children. His father Conrad #2, followed him later. Robert died shortly after in 1797. Robert had also changed his last name to Weir when he moved to Canada. His wife Sarah is buried in Brantford, Ontario along with a couple of her dauthers. Robert's son John Weir was my 3rd. great grandfather. I have a ton of info, but I don't know how far you wnat me to go with this.I know some info on William (Conrad #2)'s brother. But only on William's son William jr, who was married to Elizabeth Hermit. So, you'll have to let me know. Talk to again, Gerry
