Cindy, sorry I can't help you much, but I was born and raised in Weirton and never heard of anyone with that last name. The town was named after steel magnate Ernest T. Weir and the factory he founded there was the lifeblood of the area (including my family) for many years. At one point employed over 12,000 in a community of 28,000.
