Mary Ann (Weeks) Beers (1794 - 1835)

Mary Ann Weeks, my fourth great-grandmother, was born in 1794 as calculated by her cemetery inscription.  According to her son's (Edwin) death certificate, she was born in Southport, Connecticut.  Mary Ann was the daughter of Wright and Mary (Perry) Weeks.  She was baptized February 7, 1796 in Fairfield, Connecticut.

Around 1823 she married Anson Beers based on the birth date of their oldest child, Edwin.  They lived in Weston, Connecticut until her death on February 1, 1835, perhaps during childbirth.  She is buried in Coley Cemetery in Weston according to Hale Cemetery Inscriptions but I have not been able to find her tombstone.

After her death Anson remarried and had four more children with Rachel Squires.

I am descended from Anson and Mary Ann through their son Edwin as well as from Anson and Rachel through their daughter Abigail.
