    Biography
    • Jacob Weidenhamer, grandfather of Walter L. Weidenhamer, and son of John Adam, was born in 1797 in Berks county. He married Susanna Dreibelbis, also a native of Berks county, born Oct 1, 1805, daughter of Daniel Dreibelbis, of Richmond township, Berks county. In 1837 Mr. and Mrs. Weidenhamer moved to Montour county, this State, settling in Limestone township, where Mr. Weidenhamer bought a valuable farm of about two hundred acres. Here he followed farming until his death, which occurred in 1863, in his sixty-seventh year. He was also interested in the mercantile business at Limestoneville. Politically he was a Democrat, and held various township offices. His wife died in 1887. To them were born children as follows: Wellington D., who lived and died in Limestone (he was a tanner by occupation and served as justice of the peace); Sarah, who lived and died at Limestoneville; William, who died July 7, 1910; John Adam; Daniel, living at Milton; and Elizabeth E., who first married John Sheep and later Emanuel Mauser of Liberty township, Montour county (or maybe of Milton), and had three children, Edward Sheep (now living in Michigan) and William and Maude Mauser.
