    Theadore [sic] Weast 66 M Farmer $1500 Real Estate Value b France [babt 1784]
    Cecilia Weast 56 F b France [b abt 1794]
    Mary Weast 24 F b France [b abt 1826]
    Wililam Weast 18 M b Ohio [b abt 1832]
    Sarah Weast 15 F b Ohio [b abt 1835]

    Cecilia's maiden name is not known.  The Weast family name of herhusband is spelled Weast in virtually all records and references, buton Caecilia's grave marker, it is spelled Wiest.  A few genealogieshave taken this spelling, and I have even seen Weist on a couple ofgenealogies, which is a different pronunciation ("wyst").

    In the 1860 census, in their daughter Mary's home, there is on Z Wüst,which appears to be the French spelling of the original name.  Butthat spelling is found in native German names in Bavaria also.Another reseacher has added a note saying that this Z Wüst is Cecilia. That could be, representing the German spelling of Zezilia.  Thebirth date and place match, birth in France, and age 66.  SicneTheodore is note reported, we can conclude that he died some timeafter the 1850 census.
