History of Escambia County Alabama

Journal by green76

I am looking for anyone who may have access to the book by Annie C Waters 'History of Escambia County Alabama'.
Specifically, I am requesting copies of the pages pertaining to the Weaver Family--John Weaver and Maria Price Weaver. This would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Do you live in Escambia Co.? I can go to the library and see if they have the book. I live in Brewton. Is that associated with Weaver Glass Co.? Marilyn

I grew up in Century. I now live in Creola, AL. I don't know if we are any related to those Weavers or not. My grandfather was Dewey Weaver of Weaver's Mouments in Flomaton. My great grandfather, Luman D Weaver was mayor of Flomaton at one time.

The Weaver and Price families lived on Hollow Creek, a tributary of the Saluda River in South Carolina, in a community settled by German-speaking Protestants in the 1730s. John Weaver and wife, Maria Price, with a 2 year old daughter, came to Alabama by wagon train in 1817, accompanied by several relatives. They stopped temporarily in Monroe County, Ala, but by the end of 1818 had settled on Conecuh River. John's sister, Susannah Snider and brother, David Weaver, settled in Tuscaloosa County. Maria's sister, Christiana, and husband Mathias Snyder, eventually removed from Monroe Co., to Pike County.

I have a new computer with a synaptic touchpad but I'm using a mouse. When I type that darn touchpad jumps my typing around and deletes the message I'm typing. I've searched but can't find a way to disable it. Only to remove it, which I'm reluctant to do because I don't know if I can reinstall it once it's removed. Anyway, here's some more.
