WILLIAM H. WEYER, farmer, P. O. Allentown, was born in Jackson Township, Allen County, Ohio, April 18, 1841; son of Andrew and Nancy (Nash) Weyer. He received a common school education and has mostly followed the occupation of a farmer. In August. 1862, he enlisted in Company E, Ninety ninth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, with Capt. John C. Walters, and with the company was attached to the Fourth Army Corps. He was in the service till the close of the war, and took part in all the engagements in which his regiment participated, except about two months during which time he was in hospital suffering from a shell wound in the head received at the battle of Chickamauga. Mr. Weyer was married, August 6, 1871, to Miss Mary M., daughter of Isaac and Mary (Rumbaugh) Keller, early settlers of this county, and by her he has had seven children: Nelson, John, Adison, Elnora, Irven, Alberta and David Oliver (deceased at the age of eleven months, twenty four days). For some time after his return from the war Mr. Weyer engaged in the saw mill business. He removed to Amanda Township in March, 1871, and located on his farm, then in the woods, but now under a high state of cultivation, and supplied with substantial buildings, which demonsftate his desire to develop the farming interests of the county. His reputation is above reproach as a business man and farmer. Mr. Weyer has been a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church since March 7, 1876. He is a Republican in politics.
