First Pioneers


In the year 1817, Anthony (Weber) now known as Weaver and wife with their family consisting of five boys and three girls emigrated from Germany to America, established a home in Lycoming County, Pa.

But being dissatisfied with conditions existing there a few years later in 1820 moved farther westward, purchased land two miles south of the present location of the St. Nicholas Church.

On this farm he constructed a rude cabin of logs, which for seven years was the home of the first pioneer family of St. Nicholas Congregation.

But the spirit of contentment seemed not to abide in this humble cabin in the wilderness, and in the year 1827 was supplanted by a desire to go near some relatives who had located in what is now Washington Township, Clarion County, Pa.

Hence the Weaver family moved, established their permanent home and enrolled as members of St. Michael's congregation at Fryburg, Pa., where many of their descendents and those of their relatives now reside.
