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 lack of good Proof Documents showing that Isham Meador (b 1762, d 1840) and Bitty (Bradshaw) Meador’s son was Eli Meador (b 1787, d 1847) is one if the biggest problems in validating the Meador lineage. Does anyone have sources for this relationship?
Also, does anybody have any data on the Meador folk coming from England?
I’ll gladly share all my Meador and Henbest data.
