Clyde Weaver, Jr., is the son of S. Clyde Weaver, of Lancaster County, PA. He moved to Elgin, Illinois and worked for the Church of the Brethren Offices.

S. Clyde, Sr., was a free minister and evangelist within the Church of the Brethren.  His home congregation was East Petersburg Church of the Brethren, which would later merge with Salunga COB, and become Hempfield Church of the Brethren. S. Clyde Weaver married Emma Weaver, and between their resources founded the business,  S. Clyde Weaver Smoked Meats and Cheese. It is said that Emma's father obtained a recipe for Lebanon bologna from a "hobo" who stopped for respite at the Weaver farm.  This recipe helped put S. Clyde Weaver's "on the map." 

S. Clyde Weaver, Sr., had a sister 19 years younger than himself, E. Jean Weaver.  Their parents were Elam Weaver and Fanny Gibbel Young.  Jean married Jacob C. Wine, Jr. , who are the parents of archivist, Jeanine Wine.
