Carl Weeks (1927 – 1995), who was born in Missouri and died in Florida, seemingly had no connection with Jewell County, Kansas. However, he owned a painting created in Jewell County by a Jewell County artist. The painting, “Mother” by Serena Cleveland was created in Harrison Township, Jewell County. It is dated Feb.10,1926.
Weeks was born Oct. 26, 1927, in Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri. He is found in Jackson County or Clay County, Missouri, for most of his life. His military service is basically the only thing that took him out of the area, until his retirement.
