The page 154 in Macon Roots, A Record of the Families of Macon County, Tennessee in 1850 has a listing for Isham Meadow with a comment “The following is listed as residing in this household:” The list which is for Isham Meadow and the children from him and Obedience Bradshaw includes Eli Meadow. The Sources at the bottom of the page includes Tennessee census books and research of Velda Meadow. I should also note that Meadow is frequently spelled Meador.
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 anybody have sources for the listing of the children of Isham and Obedience? Also, how can I contact Velda Meadow?
