Potter County, PA Biographies

FREDERICK D. WEIMER, farmer, P. 0. Roulette, son of George and Eve Weimer, was born in Roulette township, Potter Co., Penn., August 12, 1832. His father was a native of France and came to America in 1836, locating in Roulette township, near the mouth of Fishing creek, just below the red school house. The country was wild, and he had to clear his farm, and at that time had to go eighty miles to mill, the nearest being at Jersey Shore; being gone at one time longer than he had expected, his family were compelled to subsist on patatoes and salt. On this farm the parents made their home until death. They had a family of eighteen children, viz.: George, Eve (deceased), Michael (deceased), Mrs. Barbara Barr, Mrs. Margaret Manning, Mrs. Sally Jackson, Barnett (deceased), Martin (deceased), Frederick D., Mrs. Catherine Jackson (deceased), Mrs. Caroline D. Davison (deceased), William, Mrs. Dorcas Marsh, John V., Mrs. Julia A. Tompkins (deceased), Mrs. Luzerne Hazen (deceased), Catherine (a babe born in Europe and buried at sea) and Jacob (who died when a child). Frederick D. remained at home until he went to learn the blacksmith's trade, after which he located in Roulette, and engaged in that business until 1875, when he removed to Clara township, where he purchased the farm he now owns and occupies. He has since then been a farmer, blacksmith, carpenter, mason, lumberman, etc., doing all kinds of work required on his farm. He married, in 1859, Anna, daughter of C. W. and Louisa Johnson, of Roulette, and their children were Ortenis and Don F. (both deceased), Ali and Ortenis. Mr. Weimer is a supporter of the Democratic party. He has been a school director nearly three fourths of the time since old enough to be interested in educational matters.
