Son of John and Nancy (Fretz) Weaver

SAMUEL W. WEAVER was born in Noble County, Indiana, August 23, 1863 being a son of John and Nancy (Fretz) Weaver.

Mr. Weaver moved to Cooper County, Missouri, with his parents when only five years old, remaining there three years. They then moved to this county, settling on a farm near Kirksville. They remained on the farm nine years and then moved to Kirksville where Mr. Weaver has since lived. On coming here he learned the plasterer and bricklaying trade and worked at that business continuous till 1900. At that time he and his brother, J. C. Weaver, started a cement plant. It is known as Weaver Bros. Granitoid Works, and they manufacture cement blocks, put down sidewalks and do all kinds of ornamental work.

The cement plant is one of the most extensive in North Missouri, and they have done a vast amount of business. Their work has been confined largely to Kirksville and the evidences of their labor and skill can be found in all parts of the city. The two brothers have been partners in business since they were boys, and they have never had a misunderstanding nor even a settlement. It has been share and share alike with perfect harmony, working for each other's interests. Although one of them is married and the other single, the home belongs to both and they live in perfect amity. As an example of brothers and partners in business, this is exceedingly remarkable.

Mr. Weaver was never married and makes his home with his brother at 302 North Baltimore Street. He is a Democrat and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
