There was Josiah Meador born in Bedford Co. Va. 1736 died approx 1780 He was the son of Jonas Meador born approx 1700 Josiah had a son Rev. Josiah Meador born approx. 1756 and died in Mercer Co. Va. now W.Va. there is some controversy about his son Thomas Meador Some say he was not his son but a son of his brother Joab who married an Indian woman I am especially interested in this as Thomas was my great grandfather. His son Lewis Meaador born Oct.24 1830 in Summers Co Va. and married a Rachel Cox and on her death married Martha Wood. Their son Frank Meador was my father. I have all the inf. frpm thomas on down and with the exception of the Indian woman back to a John Meador I would love to have that blank filled in Lois Meador Covey

Surnames: Meador, Donoho
Hi Lois: It looks like you have quite a bit of information on the Meadors and I'm hoping you can help me. In Sumner Co., TN on March 19, 1818 a Jobe Meador married a Nancy Donoho. The bondsman for this marriage is Arey Meador. A John Meador witnessed the will of Nancy Donoho's father who died in 1820. Would you know the parentage or siblings of any of these Meadors? Also, I have a Jonas Meador in Cumberland Co., VA who is married to a Polly Oakley around 1800. Polly's mother was Elizabeth Donoho. Would you know the relationship of these Meadors to each other?

My father was James Bailey Meador Sr.. His father was Walter Awood and I am a descendent of this family. Sumner CO. TN originally encompassed Macon County which is the actual area from which this family originated. There are records in the Sumner Co. Tn courthouse from which I think your information came from. If not you can learn from there. One of my ancestors was also named Bailey Meador who I think was Walter Awood's Father or grandfather. I Know that my father always claimed Indian descent. Walter was reportedly a former attorney who quit after his first case in Sumner County and became a "barnstormer" with his wife traveling around the country. please reply if this info sounds familiar....Also it was told me that it was a family tradition in this line to name firstborn males starting with "J".

Surnames: Donoho Meador
This is all new information for me. I am really a Donoho/Donahoe/Dunnahoo researcher trying to find the relationships of the Meadors with this family. Thanks so much for your reply. Marilyn
