Note: Article taken from "Echoes of an Era 1880-1980 Bridgewater, South Dakota" published by the Bridgewater, South Dakota Centennial Committee in 1980. In June 1879, twenty year old Peter Weber, along with his father, stepmother and their ten children homesteaded just inside Union Township about six miles east of the present site of Bridgewater, SD. Young peter took claim just north of the claim of his father, John B. Weber, presently owned by Alfred Weber. In the year 1889, president Benjamin Harrison issued title under the Homestead Act of 1862 to Peter Weber for the farm currently owned by Ivo Weber. Peter Weber married Mary E. Jarding sometime in 1886 or 1887. To this union were born six sons and one daughter. All grew to adulthood on the family homestead, and as they married, each of their children established their families on farms in the Bridgewater and Salem areas. Marie, the only daughter, was married to Lawrence Weber of the Bridgewater area. Peter and Mary Weber had fifty grandchildren -- all bearing the name "Weber" and all raised on McCook county farms. It was only after World War II and as the grandchildren married and established homes that family members began to spread across the country, from east to west and from north to south, and broke with the tradition of farming to pursue every conceivable kind of work discipline. However, twenty grandchildren have either carried on the family farm or have established homes on farms purchased by them in McCook County or at least in this area of the state. The children of Peter and Mary Weber were: John, Joe P., Leo, Steve, Fred, Bernard, and Marie.
