Notes from

From, 13 Mar 2001:

Thank you for contacting me. I did hear from Sherrie, who told me to contact Karen Bullard (with whom I have exchanged emails in the past), but both the email addresses I have for her are evidently invalid.

Anyway, the message was not on GenForum, but rather in the Campbell Co., VA, mail list The post was by I've copied it below. It's very exciting. I have contacted AJ, who knows the people who own the bible - they still live in the same house that Catherine Weber Trent did almost 200 years ago
(Catherine was the daughter of John who married William Trent). AJ says that the couple who owns the bible and house (and other family items) are very elderly and in poor health, and their son is taking care of them. The son realizes the value of the items, and will eventually donate them to a North Carolina library. Until then, it's unlikely that a photocopy can be made of the note in the bible, but AJ says he has one already. In any case, what he posted is a verbatim copy. I think it's legit and trustworthy.

I look forward to pursuing this with you and the other Weber researchers. btw, I am descended from John Weber's daughter Margaret, who married John Phillips.

Enough gabbing, here's the post - the best part is the 2nd to last paragraph:

Subject: William Trent & Catharine Weber

OK, I've gotten a few responses, thank you all, so this is what I have on the Trent/Weber connection.

In Rockingham Co., NC there is State Highway 87, take that north into Henry Co., VA, go one mile and take the first road to the left, SR 637, go about 3/4 mile take the first road to the left, SR Morgan Ford Rd or 622, this road will fork, stay to the right, at the end of the road is a two story white frame home, with a iron fence in front, to the right of
the house is a one story barn or wood shed, between the home and the woodshed is a abandoned road, you can't drive on it, but if you walk down this road , guessing, a mile, at he end is a small family cemetery. The Trent Family Cemetery. it is about 30' x 30' surrounded by a stone wall about 2' tall and 3' wide. I was there last in the spring on '99, about 2 weeks after the area had had a tornado, a double trunk yellow poplar had fallen across the cemetery, but the stone wall had kept the tree from doing more damage than it did, the tree crushed one double stone, that of
Benjamin Trent and his loving wife Susannah Copeland, the dates are now gone!! The graves that remain are; William Trent, who died 18 Sept 1851. Catharine Elizabeth Weber, d/o John Weber & Margaret, w/o William Trent, b. 17 May 1777 in Campbell Co., VA, d. 23 Nov 1871, then there is a one liner in German. Williiam Bailey Trent, b. 5 Nov 1811 - no death date. Rachel Weber Trent, w/o Duke Price, b. 20 Aug 1806, d. 13 Aug 1836, she leaves 6
lonely children. Sarah Garrett, w/o W. B. Trent, b. 16 Apr 1816, d. 27 Apr 1886. (there are other stones, but the tree in the cemetery really hampered me from gathering info - I plan to go back this summer with a couple of my brothers and a chain saw).

The William Trent Family Bible, in possession of James Garrett, Rockingham Co., NC. copyright 1810, has a note written on the inside back cover; For my children - My father was John Weber (or Veber it looks like a 'V') born in Germany along with my Mother Margaret, and 2 brothers, and my grandfather Peter Henry Veber, came to Virginia in 1770, and settled in Campbell Co., VA. C. E. Weber Trent, 1845
