Weller – Caleb

Caleb Weller, b 1785, is my maternal 5th great grandfather. He married Naomi Lyman in 1807 and together they had 5 children. Lovice, Solomon, Roland, Henry and Martha.

He was the son of Solomon and Sarah Clap Weller and was born in Westfield, Hampshire, MA. He was the youngest of their six children.

Often he is confused with his grandson, Caleb Eugene Weller. This Caleb is the son of his son Solomon. His grandson is buried in Bridge Street Cemetery in Northampton, MA.

It is not known when Caleb Weller, b 1785, died nor where he is buried. He was not found in the 1850 US Census with his family, so it is presumed he died before 1850.

Census:

  • 1810 Westfield; 2 adults, 2 children – Caleb, Naomi, Lovice, and Solomon
  • 1820 Northampton; 2 adults, 4 children
  • 1830 Unknown; family not found either. During this time only male head of household was listed on the census and then the ages of all other residents.
  • 1840 Unknown; Naomi and Martha (based solely on female age) are listed in Northampton. Solomon is listed by himself.

Occupation: Nothing is known of his occupation as it was not listed in the US Census at that time. The marriage records do not list occupations.  No pictures are available of him at present, and little has turned up in my research so far.
