Biography*  Here is the Weakland family connection mention in SLB's notes and diaries. Apparently John was a bit of a folk hero in the area. There are many family stories related to Fr. Gallitzen. This account paints another side of the man:
Child of ZEPHANIAH WEAKLAND is:
     i.     JOHN4 WEAKLAND.

Notes for JOHN WEAKLAND:
It has not been established as to which of the John Weaklands this story applies.

The story about John Weakland is documented in the book, "Apostle of the Alleghenies" by Margaret and Matthew Bunsen.

John Weakland was a huge 'mountainman' sort of fellow; a legend in his own time. Had a wolf as a pet, was
said to have strangled a bear with his own hands when it attacked him. A tall, quiet man who kept to himself
(as did wife and sons), and was given lots of respect and wide berth.

Fr Gallitzin was not well liked among many of the area because he was very straight forward and once he began
setting a project in motion, such as a gristmill or a sawmill, he didn't really care whose toes he stepped
on. If his purposes were blocked by men, he would turn to the law for relief and most often won. Many of the
area men felt that his buying land and creating jobs ruined their own plans - and many just hated the fact
that he was not only a Russian prince, but a Catholic priest bent on converting everyone in that area! A
lynch mob formed and they waited along a path the prince was known to take on his way back to the parish
church.

They sprang on him and began to accuse him with the intent on hanging him. Before they could do so, John
Weakland came along. John stepped into the clearing where the hanging was going to be attempted, and with
his right arm pulled an oak post out of the ground. Family legend says that his words to the mob were
something like, "I've never laid hands on a man before, but that is about to change if you touch this
holy man." and the mob fled. Fr Gallitzen prophesied that one of John Weakland's progeny would someday say
Holy Mass at the St Joseph's mission church. That was eventually fulfilled when Fr Bernard Weakland was
visiting the area and celebrated Holy Mass at the church in 1917. He did not know of the prophesy until
after Mass, when parishioners familiar with the story told him about it.

John Weakland's body was eventually moved from the old cemetery to a new one, and there is a sworn statement
by religious sisters who over saw the exhumation and transportation of the body that his casket and body
had become nothing but dust and bones, but his right arm was totally incorrupt. A window in St Joseph's
church at Hart's Sleeping Place (near Altoona, Pennsylvania) commemorates the event.


4. WILLIAM3 WEAKLAND (JOHN2, ZEPHANIAH1) was born 1770, and died 13 Aug 1864 in Loretto, Cambria co PA. He married MARY BARBARA RUFFNER 07 Feb 1804 in Sportsman Hall, Greenburg, Westmoreland Co, PA, daughter of SIMON RUFFNER and CATHERINE GRIFFIN. She was born 05 Nov 1774 in PA, and died 20 Jan 1857 in Loretto, Cambria co PA.

Biography*  According to the story told by Mary Carey, Margaret Wells was born in Ohio when Indians were on the war path. She lived in Zanesville just outside Columbus. Zanesville was a place especially known for its pottery and everywhere in town there were pottery businesses. Margaret's mother died when she was young. Her brothers were old enough to look after themselves, but Margaret moved with her father to Georgetown (Washington, D.C.) in about the year 1840. They were traveling east in a covered wagon when they were attacked by Indians. Margaret's father was killed by an Indian arrow. Margaret who was only ten and was alone continued on the journey east with some fellow travelers who survived the Indian attack. At last they entered western Maryland and eventually traveled down the Old Georgetown Road south of Rockville where the family stopped. By now they were in the area now known as Bethesda and were befriended by a family named Grimes who lived in the area. Margaret stayed with the Grimes family living as one of their children. Here she learned beautiful hand sewing and eventually earned her living as a tailoress. She married Samuel Shoemaker a member of the very prominent family of land owners who are still (1976) in possesion of large tracts of land around Bethesda. The couple had two children. Samuel Shoemaker died leaving Margaret with the children. Shortly after his death Margaret married a widower, Rezin Horatio Ogle.

Dear Margot,
The Braddock researchers are so far ahead of me...One of them already has Sweinberger's book. More and more they are tying Nancy to John. They are also finding that Nancy was interchangeable with Anna/Anne, which I know there is another Ann/Anna, but...On the Cambria county website, there is a copy of the centennary(?)/centennial that lists a family of John and Ann Braddock with a son Simon Peter, daughters Catherine, Mary Ann and Emilie/Emily 1811-1817 - we believe these to be the older siblings of John C., Michael and Pius. After that, there is a John and Elizabeth (Storm) Braddock, married in 1825/26, John's second wife...
Attached is a copy of an e-mail I was sent this morning from Joe Berg, an excerpt from another book...I am almost positive our John is the husband of Nancy Ruffner.. Wonder what happened to her...If you are interested, I will be happy to send you a copy of all of the e-mails they have been sending me that lead them to this point...
