I found information on my great great grandfather Frederick Augustus Mirus, in the 1850 Scott County, Illinois census. He was listed as being from Saxony. He married Elizabeth Perkins. His daughter Clara Mirus, was my great grandmother. She had several brothers and sisters. After her marriage to Samuel David Meason (my great grandfather), they came to Texas and settled in the Collin County area.
That is about all I know except for the information I received from Susan Fobes in Madison, Wisconson. Her ancestor John Frederick Mirus, was Clara's brother. I believe I sent you her email address. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Nancy -

My great grandparents were also Samuel David Meason and Clara Mirus. My grandmother was their youngest child Clara Ethel Meason. Would love to hear any info you have on either of these lines.
