Johnny Weismuller was born near the brickyard in Windber.
His family moved to Detroit when he was about one year old.
This was told by him when he visited Windber in 1948 or 49

After contacting (Johnny Tarzan's) relative in 1999, The following information was emailed to me...In fact his name is also Johnny Weissmuller and his email address is still <[email protected]>. He states that Johnny's brother, Peter John Weissmuller was born in Windber, Pa. and without his brother Peter's Birth Certificate, Johnny could not of gotten his passport in time to attend the 1924 Olympics, that launched his career. Johnny "tarzan" Weissmuller's real birth place was "Romania".. Much more information is available by entering into a search engine such as (Google)..."Tarzan's Family Tree-The Weissmuller Branch"...I hope this bit on information proves to be helpful in the quest of finding out the truth of where Johnny "Tarzan" Weissmuller was actually born...And I'm sorry to say, it wasn't in Windber, PA.
