Here’s what I learned about Weeksville today, August 20, 2017:
Vivian and I spent the last few months looking for the deed to her great-grandfather’s house in Weeksville. Turns out he bought on Marion Street. Does that count as Weeksville? (see map below) We found the deed-abstract at Brooklyn Historical Society.

Weeksville had no precise boundaries. The gray box roughly approximates the area of Weeksville according to Reverend Rufus L. Perry ca. 1880s.
