About Frederick Abraham Weaver

Frederick Abraham Weaver was born in the Netherlands to a German-Dutch Protestant family of possibly distant Ashkenazi Jewish or Roman extraction. He was the brother of Rev. John Wesley Weaver of Weaverville, North Carolina.

Frederick's grandsons would go on to found Weaver branches in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.

Direct descendants of Frederick Weaver are apart of haplogroup J-L283, which is only present in 3%-5% of the German population. The haplogroup is also present in a large swath of territory on the German-French border, located directly upon former Roman settlements, indicating descent from the legionnaires that occupied this part of Germany. Though it is impossible to know the exact ethnic origins of these legionnaires, the haplogroup is associated with the Balkans, having been found in Bronze Age Croatia in 1600 BC.
