WAYLAND/WEYLAND/WEILAND Photos

Henry Harrison WAYLAND Photo


Henry Harrison WAYLAND, b. 2 Sep 1843, d. 2 Jul 1921, and his mother-in-law Ann LOWRY, b. 22 Sep 1831, d. aft 1917, wife of Anna Belle's father, Abel R. JACKSON.  After Abel died on 11 Sep 1858, Ann LOWRY (JACKSON) m. Henry Toulman FORT.  Henry's son, Lloyd WAYLAND, wrote, "Pa & Grandma FORT, mother's mother."  H. H. WAYLAND fought for the Confederacy at age 18, and was captured and put in a POW camp.  He was released after an oath of allegiance, but joined the troops again and was recaptured.  This was an automatic death sentence, but his mother rode the train to Washington, DC, and spoke with Abe Lincoln, who pardoned him (this story is in his obituary).

Lloyd Lowry WAYLAND Photo LLoyd Lowry WAYLAND was over 72 when he helped out during WW II by working in a machine shop, building things for the fighting men.  This picture was in the paper, and underneath it, it said, "L.L. Wayland, 72, father of a Navy Chaplain, was a bond salesman before he retired.  Now he operates a turret lathe and has been neither absent nor late for work in two years."  John's grandfather told him that when he went to work in the factory at this job in St. Louis, MO, he did the best that he could.  The problem was that he was outproducing the other men working there, who were draft dodgers half his age.  They got really irritated about "Pops" outproducing them and complained to the foreman.  The foreman came to Granddad LLoyd and told him that he would put down in the book that he was producing the same as the others each day.  But, he would mark in another place the actual number he produced, and that would be a cushion in case he was down some day on production.  Granddad LLoyd said that he never was down on his production, but that solved the complaint problem.  He never admitted to being of German descent during the war, of course.  He told everyone that he was "Dutch."
