William Henry Weeks

M, b. 4 May 1798, d. 17 February 1881
     William was born on 4 May 1798 at Hudson, Columbia, New York, United States.1 He was the son of William Wicks. He married Susannah Sheffield, on 13 July 1817. William died on 17 February 1881 at Elba, Genesee, New York, United States, at age 82. William died of Pain in Feet!?. His body was buried at Quaker Hill Cemetery, Elba, Genesee, New York, United States.
     Biography of William Henry Weeks:
William Henry was one of the earliest settlers in the north part of Elba. He was known as the "Fighting Quaker" because of he served as a lad in the War of 1812, drawing bread and other provisions for the army from Albany to Buffalo with a four horse team, was his active role in the War. The soldiers drew a daily ration of whiskey but being a teetotler, Mr. Weeks exchanged his whiskey for butter, etc. . He saw Buffalo being burned by the British.

His family moved to Farmington, Ontario County, New York at an early date. It was there that he met and married his 15 year old bride, Susannah Sheffield. They had relocated to Farmington when she was very young. Five years later, in 1822, they settled on the farm where they would pass the remainder of their days. They purchased for a home tact of land, a parcel of 110 acres located on the highest ridge in the town. When they came here, that part of the town was a wilderness withouot public roads or other improvements. William had to mark trees to guide them from one point to the other in the dense forest. They soon removed the timber and covered the broad fields with golden grain, but it wasn't easy.

All the pioneer couple possessed at the time was a yoke of oxen, and old shed, an ax, and 25 cents in money. They moved in the winter, taking up their abode with a neighbor and began the work of clearing the land. William built a pole shanty for his oxen, whose only feed that winter was the small branches of green trees. The he built a small log house with a stick chimney outside aand moved his family in. Ashes were boiled to make black salts, which were sold to by groceries and other provisions. The following spring he sowed his grain by hand, reaped it with a sickle and threshed it with a flail, drawing all of it to Rochester, 38 miles away, with a sled. He received 25 cents a bushel for his wheat. For going to the mill, he constructed a vehicle by removing the top half from a hollow log, slanted up at one end, placing a chain abouot it , hitching his oxen to it and placing the grist in the hollowed section. He had to go to the mill by way of Batavia and on various occasions people alighted from the stage there to see his queer turnout. The pioneers often encountered dangers, bears, wildcats and other wild animals being much in evidence at the time.

With brave hearts and vigorous hope, William and Susannah battled with the privations and hardships of pioneer life. Together they lived to see and enjoy the wonderful transformation of the wilderness into a garden of beauty and plenty. Twelve children gladdend their happy home, most reaching maturity.

William suffered from a severe and painful illness for several weeks before he died. He had long been a prominent and useful member of the Friend's Church and was greatly missed by his 34 grandchildern and 24 great-grand children. After 63 years of marriage, Susannah was left with many fond memories , that saw her through the following years. Her 83rd birthday celebration was marred by the fact that she was ill. In the morrning of the 26th of February, 1885, peace fell upon this great lady and eternal slumber overcame her. The Rev. Edddy conducted her funeral services at the Friend's Church and she was laid to rest in the Friend's Cemetery with her husband.

Welcome, Joshua,John, Melvina, Jane, and Edward moved to Michigan when that state was being settled and have many descendants there.

James H, the yougest, remained at home with his parents and inherited most of their substantial property. He appears to have obtained the inheritance by chicanery, because an eyewitness account of the reading of the will of William H. Weeks, states that when the reading was completed, Susannah spole up and said, "Why James! thee burned the wrong will." The will was not contested however, and James kept his inheritance. The other living children received $300 each, under the terms of the will, with the exception of Stephen who received about $365. Some of Emiline's children recieved $25 Each.

This story is corrected by viewing the actual will in which all is given to first, his wife Susanna; secondly, all is given to son James and he is directed to to give each of his siblings $200 to be paid within two years after Susanna's death.
