I am looking for information about James MEEHAN b 1843 in Upper Canada and married Mary Jane TAFF who was born 1854 in Illinois. According to the 1900 Census the family was living in Florence, Florence, Wisconsin. They had 9 children George T. 1873, Willie 1877 and Nellie 1878, born Ohio. James 1881, John 1883, Bessie 1885, Frank 1887, Charle 1889, born Wisconsin. Also Lennie Grace 1898, adopted.
James MEEHAN left Belleville, Ontario, abt 1863 and went to the USA to join the army where he was wounded. I believe his parents are Patrick MEEHAN and Bessie McGEE (Magee), both born in Ireland.
