  • Note:
    "Adam Weiser (d. 1797) of Dublin, Pulaski Co., Virginia....Adam Weiser a rrived at Philadelphia on the 'Neptune' on September 23, 1751. He seem s to have settled in Pennsylvania for a time (judging an item in Box 5a o f the Society Collection, Surveys, Historical Society of Pennsylvania). H e settled in Frederick County, Virginia, as early as 1772 (when he sued o ne of his debtors for collection), but, later settled near Dublin, Mont gomery (now Pulaski) County, Virginia. His will (Montgomery County wil ls 1-204) names his wife as Elizabeth. He had several children also na med. The surname seems to have been spelled Wiser for a time and event ually Wysor. He is buried with members of his family in the old Wysor c emetery, near Dublin...."
    "This Virginia family can currently be traced back to Adam Weiser who f irst appears in Lehigh Co., PA (at that time Northampton Co., PA) in 17 55. From where Adam came has for years been a matter of debate and con jecture. Since as early as 1906 it has been stated that Adam was the s on of George Frederick Weiser of Long Island, NY. I have never found p roof of this.....I will say that I find it unlikely that Adam is a son o f George, but I will not entirely rule out this possibility. On Septemb er 23, 1751, an Adam Weiser was among the male passengers (probably ove r the age of sixteen) from the Ship Neptune who took an oath of abjurat ion at the Court House in Philadelphia. Many have suggested that this i s our Adam Weiser. While I think this is likely, there is still no pro of.....As stated earlier, the first positive record we have for our Ada m Weiser is in Lehigh County (Northampton County, PA. In the records o f St. Paul's Lutheran and Reformed Church in Upper Saucon Twp., we find t hat Adam Weiser and Elizabeth Beck, daughter of Jurg Beck, from the Blu e Mountain, were legitimately married. The date of the marriage is not r ecorded. It is the first of six consecutive marriage entries for which n o date is recorded. The entry immediately preceding these is dated July 6 , 1755. The two following these six are merely dated 1756.....The reco rds of St Paul's also list the baptisms of two of Adam and Elizabeth's c hildren, Catharine and Christina. No baptismal records have yet been l ocated for Adam and Elizabeth's two older children, Henry and Elizabeth . Next we move to the records of Dryland Lutheran Church in Hecktown, B ethlehem Twp., Northampton Co. Here we find the baptismal records for t hree more of Adam and Elizabeth's children, George Adam, John Jacob, an d Mary Margaret.......The baptism of Adam and Elizabeth's daughter Pegg y (Mary Margaret) in 1768 is the last record we currently have of this f amily in PA, and it is probably shortly after this that they migrated s outh into Frederick County, VA, near the town of Winchester....They rem ained in Frederick Co. until the mid to late 1780's, when they migrated e ven further south to Montgomery Co., VA, in an area that would become P ulaski Co. in 1839.......Adam Weiser died circa 1804 in Montgomery Co., V A and his wife, Elizabeth, died circa 1811 in Montgomery Co. They had t en known children..."
    "We turn now to the unwritten history of the Virginia branch, descendan ts from Adam Weiser, a grandson of Johann Conrad Weiser, and his wife, E lizabeth Turnipseed, whose original German name was corrupted to this f orm. They migrated to the neighborhood of Winchester, Virginia, about 1 734, and thence to southwest Virginia. Adam and his wife are buried ne ar Dublin, Virginia, but only their names on their tombstones are decip herable. Their son, Henry Weiser, a revolutionary soldier, and his wif e, Barbara Ann Ripseed (corrupted from Rapeseed or Rapseed), left their r ecords in full. Their new home was in a slightly mountainous but amazi ngly rich country. It was a crossroad of nationalities, a great highwa y between East and West, while remaining a 'West' itself....The Germans o f many religious sects, Lutheran, Reformed, Mennonite, and Moravian wer e marching up and down the longitudinal valleys from Pennsylvania and t he Scotch-Irish were moving along the same routes with them side by sid e. Then English settlers, the Huguenots and the Dutch, came up the riv ers from the Tidewater sections....."
