    The Weaver Way: Zürich → Pennsylvania → Ohio
    This history traces the path of Sharon (née Weaver) Vitter's 4th great grandfather, Swiss immigrant Jacob Weaver Sr., who ventured from the canton of Zürich to Pennsylvania via Rotterdam on the ship Sally in 1767. His sons continued onward in the early 1800s to Ohio. Open questions remain about his ancestors in the old country.
