|"The book "Weaver Genealogy" by Lucius Weaver (1928), lists Barbara Weaver, born 1 April 1771, in Coventry, R.I., the daughter of Langford Weaver. Langford was a yeoman and resided in Coventry, R.I. until 1808 or 1809 when he moved to Berlin, NY. He died in Berlin, NY. During the Rev. War he served in the Second Kent County Regiment, being a lieutenant of the Third Coventry Company in 1776 and its Captain in 1777 to 1785. During the Rev.

"George Rouse probably grew up in Coventry, R.I., or West Greenwich, R.I. and learned his father's trade of tailor. In 1778 (9) he married Barbara Weaver, born in 1771 (probably Coventry, R.I.), but who later resided in Bennington, VT (from 1773 to 1788).
In 1790, George and his family moved to Argylestown, Washington Co., New York.
In 1800 they lived in Thurman, N.Y. and in 1810 Johnsburg, Warren Co., N.Y. and then in Camillis, Onondaga Co., N.Y. (The preceeding Robert Rouse notes.).
George Rouse's gravestone was located in Cabot Cemetery (on Meech Road), Wheatfield Twp., Ingham Co., Michigan in the Rouse plot.
