The Emmett L. Weekes (1883-1970) Family

My grandfather is ROBERT EARL WEEKES ( JULY 17,1914) . His parents were EMMETT L. WEEKES ( 1883/1970 ) and MARIE JASSICK (1882/1956). They had other children as well - JOSEPH (1903), JAMES(1911) and ERNEST(1912). I have been trying to dig up info for a while but no luck from my grandfather. I have searched for EMMETT but can not locate him on any listing I have found. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Her uncle or great uncle was ANTON CERMAK- the mayor of Chicago that was shot instead of FDR. ROBERT and MARION had four children: ROBERTA, JAMES, SANDRA and JOSEPH. I am ROBERTA'S daughter.

Thank you again. Michelle

From Abel's biography: "William Weekes, father of Abel, was born in London, England, in 1827. He was brought to this country when he was two years of age by his parents, who stayed for a short time in Pennsylvania, USA. Then they came to St. Thomas Ont. When but ten years of age they moved to a farm in Mosa Township. In 1840 this farm was sold, and the farm across the road purchased. To this farm, the son William brought his bride, Lydia Jane Edwards in 1855. There they raised their family of thirteen children, giving each one an High School education. Mr. William Weekes died in 1910, and Mrs. Weekes in 1921."

From The Permanent Nature of Everything: A Memoir By Judith Cowan: "... William Weekes, had married Lydia Jane Edwards who was descended from a Loyalist named Seneca Edwards. Seneca's father had been a Welshman, but his mother was a member of the Seneca nation, and the family was proud of possessing Iroquoain blood. Although William Weekes was a farmer, he educated his children. One of his sons became a doctor, others were notaries or lawyers and Edith Annie was brought up learning to draw, paint and play the guitar."

The Isaac Weeks / Eleanor Mastin Family of Prince Edward County - Morton - Westport - Clayton NY

Isaac and Eleanor came to Prince Edward County from the United States. We know of George and Mary from the presence of Mary's gravestone in Brier Hill Cemetery, not far from that of Susan (Eliza) Weekes Lincoln. It is possible that Susan Lincoln was a daughter of Solomon Weeks. This family does not have a connection to the family of Joseph and Jane Weekes, aside from their presence in Leeds Grenville. We learned of George's parents (Solomon and Sarah) from their great-great-great-grand-daughter.

Information about Isaac's ancestors came from www.geni.com.

The John and Ellen Weekes Family of Edwardsburgh / Cardinal / Watertown NY

This family likewise does not have an obvious connection aside from their presence in Leeds Grenville. There were also Weeks families in the Elizabethtown area, where there exists the Weekes Family Cemetery. There was a Weeks family in the Brockville area (Henry), which according to the 1871 census, were of English origins. "*" indicates speculation based on coincidence or well matched data. Descendents of John and Ellen are still living in the Watertown NY area. Family lore says John D. participated in the Battle of the Windmill on the Loyalist side. His son, John, emigrated to the US and married Mary Morgan. Here is the list of that family that we know of, including details from descendents:

John Weeks

In The History of Leeds and Grenville , by Thad. w.h. Leavitt, first published in 1879 by the Recorder Press in Brockville , it seems that : "In March 1832 a meeting of very loyal tories was held in the Court House, Brockville to draft an address to HM the King telling him how delightful, prosperous and well governed they felt the province to be. This was violently opposed by the Liberals there present who after much speachifying and near violence, were led from the Court House by Mr Buell, and organized a meeting at the inn of Mr. Mair. They prepared a petition diametrically opposed to the Tory one." John Weeks was one of the twenty or so men nominated to circulate the petition for further signatures. We have shortened and adulterated the wording a bit.

Kevin Weekes   b. Apr 4,1975

Great retired NHL goaltender. A second-round draft pick of the Florida Panthers in 1993, Weekes played 348 regular-season games with the Panthers, Vancouver Canucks, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils. Weekes helped lead the Carolina Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup Final in 2002, and is the Hurricanes' all-time leader in playoff goals-against average and save percentage. Kevin was born in Toronto.

William Weeks -1806

In July, 1806, a member of the House of Assembly, William Weeks, was killed in a duel with a resident of the town of Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake) named William Dickson. They fought on the American side of the Niagara River

Mr. Weeks c.1801

In July, 1801, there was an aborted duel between a Joseph Wilcocks and a Mr. Weeks. They quarrelled when Weeks, known to be emotionally unstable, accused Wilcocks of being an informer. When Wilcocks called Weeks a liar, Weeks challenged him to a duel. On the way to the duelling ground, however, Wilcocks was arrested and forced to pay a bond to keep the peace for six months. Weeks died as a traitor at Fort Erie in the War of 1812, fighting for the Americans.

WEEKES, George Leonard Ross "Len"
It is with great sadness, we are announcing the peaceful passing of Len (George Leonard Ross) WEEKES, at home, surrounded by his loving family, on Sunday January 25th, in Richmond Hill, at the age of 91. Len was born (1912) in London, Ontario; son of the late George M.P. WEEKES and the late Elizabeth (ROSS) WEEKES. Beloved husband of the late Shirley (LAWRANCE) WEEKES (2003). Len is and will be greatly missed by his two sons; Larry WEEKES and his wife Yolande of London and Brian WEEKES and his wife Jovina of Richmond Hill. Also loved by his two grandsons Michael and Stephen and his step-grandson Jason. Dear brother of Jack R. WEEKES and his wife Irene; Alberta (WEEKES) KAY and dear brother-in-law of Marion (Lawrance) JANES all of London. Len will also be missed by many nephews and nieces. Len was well known in the music circle of his native London and in Ottawa; having been the orchestra leader at the former Canadian Grill of the Chateau Laurier for a number of years. When Len retired from his Federal Government job, he kept on playing his music by forming a small group of his own; playing at formal functions and benefits in Ottawa, and on most weekends at the Kiwanis Alex Dayton Senior Centre in Ottawa, until returning home to his beloved London where he soon got reacquainted with the local music world. Many fellow musicians in the London area will remember him fondly and will miss his companionship. Len was also known to volunteer his time at various hospitals, notably, starting on the first official day of retirement, at The Ottawa Civic Hospital and upon his return to London at University Hospital to name a few. Friends will be received by the family from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday and 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at the A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London where the funeral service will be conducted in the chapel on Saturday January 31st, 2004 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Lin ALBRECHT officiating. Interment in Woodland Cemetery, London. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the McCormick Home Foundation, 230 Victoria Street, London, Ontario N6A 2C2 (Online condolences accepted at www.amgeorgefh.on.ca)
