Dr. Charles Benton Weedman was born 26 January 1858 in Ashland County, Ohio the son of Dr. George W. and Sophronia (Richards) Weedman. Dr. Charles Weedman was a graduate of the Case Western School of Medicine and practiced in New London and Wellington as well as other communities in Ashland and Huron Counties, Ohio. He married Lucy Iona DuBois on 25 August 1880. Two children were born to this couple: Donald Vincent and Elizabeth S. Weedman.
Dr. Charles B. Weedman died 13 May 1939 and is buried in Ridge Hill Memorial Cemetery, Amherst, Ohio.
His grandparents were Jacob and Catherine (Bishop) Weedman. They were married in Perry County, Ohio on 11 February 1819 and Jacob died there about 1829. Jacob's parents, George and Charlotte Huhn Weedman, left Perry County, OH in 1829 and moved to McLean County, IL. Catherine, the young widow with six children, moved to Ashland County, OH where she raised the family. This family produced a number of medical professionals and, as a result, Catherine Bishop Weedman was named to the Weedman Family Hall of Fame at the 2000 Weedman National Gathering held in Farmer City and Weedman, Illinois.
