Sometimes when I am searching for subject matter for the blog, I get totally distracted. Such was the case in researching today's marriage. Mary Eliza Rose was the daughter of Horace Boardman Rose and Elvira Percival. Elvira was one of my great-great-great grandfather's sisters. Mary Eliza rose married Samuel Montgomery Weaver on April 13, 1836 in Roseville, Arkansas. It is said that Roseville was named for Horace Rose. Sam Weaver was born in 1803 in Kentucky and Mary Eliza was born in 1813 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Sam died in April 1864 in Little Rock at the age of 60 and Mary Eliza died December 3, 1904 in Little Rock. Sam was Arkansas Secretary of state in 1860.
