d. 15 April 1939, Denver, Denver County, Colorado

Children with Thomas Sharp Weaver:

  • Jackson Fay (1899-1963)
  • Hallie May (1902-1988) married [—?—] McMichael

Lenora lived in Summitville, Boone Township, and Anderson in Madison County, Indiana. Starting about age ten, she played the piano for the hymn sings as her father traveled from church to church preaching at revival meetings and baptizing converts.

According to her granddaughter, she played in an almost jazzy manner with nothing sad or somber but in a joyful manner. She confided in later years that part of the joy in accompanying her father was that in most churches, she was allowed to choose a piece of clothing for herself or a sibling from that church’s Poor Barrel. She like this because the clothes were “new” to her schoolmates, thus eliminating the teasing, “You’re wearing Mary’s old dress.”
