Names of my ancestors have always interested me. Many of them were named after someone else. My ggg-grandparents Joseph and Beulah Weinhart had four sons. Their names were Charles A. Weinhart, Lorenzo Dow Weinhart, Theodore Parker Weinhart , and George Washington Weinhart. It is obvious that the fourth son was named after George Washington. The middle two Lorenzo Dow and Theodore Parker were named after preachers/ministers, one from the early 1800's and one from the 1850's. Both were strongly anti-slavery. This makes me wonder if Joseph and Beulah were both strongly anti-slavery in their views. If the last three sons are named after someone it makes me believe that the first son, Charles A., is named after someone also. I am just guessing but maybe his middle name is Abner which was Beulah's father's name. If then the middle name is for her father maybe the first name, Charles, is the name of Joseph's father. The picture gives a brief synopsis on the Reverend Theodore Parker who was the namesake of Joseph and Beulah's third son.
