There seems to be a discrepancy over his name, Elijah David or David. I found an article on a forum and similar information on Find A Grave, both written by the same author, Beth Walton, who seems to have a lot of information. Parents 
By Beth Walton July 18, 2009 at 02:05:15 In reply to: The Missouri Allards Cletis Ellinghouse 12/01/04 David Weaver, born ca. 1785, was the son of one of the Weavers who died in White Co., TN, and I tend to agree with earlier researchers that Samuel Weaver and Nancy Hutson were his parents.Samuel Weaver said in his White Co., TN Revolutionary War pension application that his papers burned in his son, Elijah's house fire."Someone" made him Elijah David Weaver in their research!
Record added: Jun 28, 2015 Find A Grave Memorial# 148393341 Two of Fannie Womack David Weaver's granddaughters, Emma Susan (nee Weaver) Potts Rodgers (daughter of Larkin Weaver and Susan Harrison) and Francis Jane (nee Allard) Hudson (daughter of Nancy Weaver and James Burleson Allard) filed claims for their Native American entitlements, and both only referred to their grandfather as David Weaver. Francis Jane's mother, Nancy (nee Weaver) Allard Hunt Kizer was still living when they filed, and it's reasonable to think she would know her father's given name or names. Their claims of Cherokee heritage of their grandmother, Frances "Fannie" (nee Womack) Weaver were dismissed for lack of proof.
