The info you found on the net refers to my ancestors. Weightman is a first name and was Weightman Edwards’s mother’s maiden name. His mother was Mary E. Weightman and father was Henry Moore Edwards; they were married in NY in 1890.
The oral history is short on the Pillow side; Florence Alberta Pillow was said to be the only child of Benjamin Pillow and his wife; a Carrie Unknown. Carrie died and Benjamin remarried a Lilly Unknown. Some elder family members say that Benjamin lived in Virginia and others say Tennessee; regardless the story goes that the city hall burned down and finding records for this Benjamin has yet to be accomplished.
I have requested the Social Security Application for Florence and as you say hope to gather valuable information. I will update both the board and email you upon finding any information. Thanks, Tiffany
