(Excerpts taken from "A Short History of the Life of Fredrick Weight by Himself)

My father was a blacksmith by trade and was blessed with six children.

My father, with his family, moved to Cheltenham where I was sent to infant school. I was then about five years of age. We lived in Cheltenham about seven years. Railroads had just begun to be built when my father decided to go to the city of Bristol, a seaport of England. We lived here eleven years.

I went to work at the Iron Works with my father and worked with him for seven years in the same shop.

I was very religious as far back as I can remember, being a member of a religious sect called the Independents . . . my father and mother also attended this church.

When I was about sixteen or eighteen years of age, my father was out of work a great deal and it so happened that I had work most all the time.

The President of the Branch and my folks thought it best for me to marry prior to my departure and take my wife along with me. They got enough money for her to go, which I was to pay back to the President's brother upon my arrival in St. Louis in America, which I later did.

We stayed at the home of my father about one week, then set sail for Liverpool.

At the time I was married, my father got up and blessed us and gave us his blessing, which I appreciated very much.

The night we left I shall never forget. My father was just going up to bed as he had to go to work very early. He wished me good-by, as he would not see me in the morning, which was the last time I ever saw him.
