The descendants of James Brady Weir and Emma Hurst Dannehower

gather the first Sunday in August not far from the original Weir homestead in Bucks County, Pennsylvania for a Weir Reunion.

James Brady Weir’s great grandfather was Samuel Weir,

probably a son of John Weir.

The Weirs arrived in Pennsylvania in 1734 from Ulster with the Barclays, Finleys, Kelsos, Walkers, Wallaces, Barnhills, Griers & Darrochs and settled in the upper part of Warrington, Warwick & New Britain Townships.

This Link will lead you to my Weir

information at RootsWeb. I include information

on many Weir/Wier/Wear families, including the Weirs who settled in New England, the Weirs who settled in South Carolina, and the Weirs who settled first in Pennsylvania. Additional photos and stories are on Contact me.

  1. I include the mother's maiden name as a middle name for most individuals. Know that the middle name is usually my inclusion for identification purposes.

  2. Names in CAPITAL LETTERS immigrated to the US

  3. Names with an * are my direct line. State abbreviations (TX) in a name mean the individual made a move to that state.

  4. Surnames are sometimes in parenthesis "(Wear) Weir". I chose a common spelling but include the spelling found in most documents in (parenthesis).
