My Grandmother on Mom’s (Lucille Henbest) side was Joanna Meador. She was born on 3 December 1867 in Barry County Missouri and died on 6 April 1949 in Fayetteville Arkansas. Joanna’s husband was Alfred Henbest.
Here is the data I have on Joanna’s Meador lineage.:
George Henry Meador (b 1 September 1838, d 8 Feb 1904 - Lucy Ann Booth
Nathaniel Meador (b 19 September 1818, d 28 May 1862) - Sarah Turner and
Eli Meador (b 1787, d 1846) - Sarah (Sarah) Turner
Isham Meador (b 20 March 1762, d 2 March 1849) - Biddy Bradshaw and Martha Craighead.
Joel Meador (b 1728, d 1789) - Frances, Agnes, and Susannah Clark.
Jonas Meador ( b 1700) - Frances
Thomas Meader, Jr.
Thomas Meader, Sr.
The documentation for this lineage is fairly well documented except for Eli Meador being a child of Isham Meador and Bitty (Bradshaw). I have good documents on each of them, but nothing validating their parent/child relationship. Also, there is some difficulty in getting good documentation for Joel’s ancestors.
Do you have any good source documents for the Isham - Eli relationship or Joel’s ancestors?
I’ll be glad to share all the Meador, Henbest, and Pearce data I have and I have been able to join the SAR via Isham.
