Nancy Ann Reed Weidner (1796-1868)

Nancy Ann Reed, or Reith, was born in Pennsylvania on December 22, 1796 to Christopher Rieth and Sarah Clark. Her father was entirely of German descent while her mother was presumably English. When still young her family moved to Ohio where she was married on June 2, 1814 in Butler County to Daniel Weidner, a farmer. Shortly after their marriage they moved to Lewis County, Missouri and had at least three children. Daniel died in 1863, during the height of the civil war although it is unlikely that he died due to the war. Nancy followed him just a few years later, on December 31, 1868 in Deer Ridge, Lewis, Missouri.

Daniel and Nancy had at least three children:

1. Nancy Jane Weidner (1823-1918)
2. Sarah Catherine Weidner (no info)
3. Daniel Reed Weidner (no info)
