Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 669, City of Winamac, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"SIMON WEYAND was born in Cass County, Indiana, May 9, 1839, and is one of the six children living, in a family of eight, born to DANIEL and ELIZA (BECKLEY) WEYAND, natives of Pennsylvania, and born respectively May 11, 1807, and May 19, 1811. DANIEL WEYAND learned the trade of a hatter; at his majority, he went to Marion County, Ohio, engaged in farming and was there married, June 29, 1830. In 1836, he located in Cass County, Indiana, then an almost unpopulated district, entered Government land, and was one of the earliest settlers of northwestern Indiana. He and wife are yet living in Boone Township, adjoining the southern line of this county (Pulaski), and Mr. Weyand has been in what is now Pulaski County when it did not contain a single white inhabitant. SIMON WEYAND received in his youth a good common school and academical education. In 1862, he went to Oregon and was for four years engaged in teaching and clerking. In 1866, he went to California and was there also employed a year in teaching. The fall of 1867, he returned and entered the law office of Hon. D. P. BALDWIN, of Logansport. The spring of 1869, he came to Winamac and engaged in law practice, and in 1878, was elected Prosecuting Attorney, serving until 1880. In 1876, in partnership with T. W. THOMAS, he began compiling abstracts, and in 1880, withdrew from the practice of law and has since devoted himself entirely to the abstract business, and has now the only complete set of abstract books in the county. He is a Democrat and a member of the Masonic fraternity. He was married, March 15, 1871, to Miss EMILY GUSS, who was born in Pulaski County May 15, 1848, and to this union have been born two children - MARSHALL (deceased) and DORA."
