Reference abbreviations

Weede Family Records = Weede family records photocopied in the late 1980's from the collection of my cousin Mrs. Bernice Hollander, from the collection of her mother Mrs. Faith Herman, a granddaughter of Nathaniel Cooper Weede. It is generally difficult to tell when and by whom these records were written. Some are typescript records which seem to have been copied from earlier sources.

Weede Letter 1846 = Letter dated 25 March and 1 April 1846 (damaged with pieces missing), written to "Brother and Sister" Nathaniel and Jane Weede from _____ Weede, which gives among other information the birthdates of Reuben C. Weede and Lilias Baird and their children, from photocopy of original which in the late 1980's was in the possession of my cousin Mrs. Bernice Hollander of Des Moines, a great-granddaughter of Nathaniel Cooper Weede. The writer of the letter refers to Reuben C. Weede and Lilias Baird as "Father & Mother", so by process of elimination, the writer would seem to have been either John B. Weede, the only brother of Nathaniel Cooper Weede, or Martha Weede the only sister who was then unmarried.
