  1. Joe Weyers name is actually spelled "Weyres."

  2. Thank you for noting the discrepancy for spelling the name "Weyers".
    I copied exactly the name noted on the photo. I also find that newspapers postings spell the name differently. I would like anyone searching family history for "Weyers" to know that the name may also be spelled "Weyres" on records.
