Surnames: Meadows, Langston
Does anyone have any information on Meadows families living in or around Benton MS. I am trying to find William Meadows father. He was born in Maury county TN in 1853 and moved to the Benton area soon after. I believe his mother to be Mary Langston born in 1830. He had a sister named Sienna or Seanna who was born in 1857(?) Any information would be great!

In the 1860 and 1870 census Mary Winborn is living with William and in the 1910 census Mary is living with Odie Aston and is listed as grandmother, that is why I came to the conclusion that she is his mother. It is not for sure but I think its definitely possible.

So ThomasKer2 where did you get Odie's death record?? If this is the same Odie that is related to Lucy Meadows Hunt than the Tobe is a nickname perhaps of William??? I know his middle initial is T. Why is it that Mary Langston Winborn could not be Williams mother or at least she may have been his care taker. In a census I am not sure what they would call a grandmother that is your wifes grandmother, like grandmother-in-law?? I don't know that they would get that specific. I think that Mary is Odie's grandmother. If you look under Mary Winborn in 1860 they lived in tippah ms. William had a last name of Tinnel but I am not sure how this fits but if you notice his sisters name is C. Ann which is too coincidental to be a different person. I appreciate any input!!

Buck, I just now found your inquiry from November of last year. You may already have this information, but just in case: My records show that William Terrell Meadows was the son of Noah Meadows and Mary Jane Langston Meadows. Mary was widowed and subsequently married my ancestor, Pugh Winborn. I believe that a sister of hers, Dulcinea Langston, married another of my ancestors, Samuel Wiley Winborn (who was the brother of Pugh). I hope this information jibes with what you have and is helpful. If so, I may have some more info for you. -- Tom

WOW! Exactly my thoughts!!! I had found Noah Meadows born in NC living in the same area as Mary Langston. My question is why is Noah still alive in the 1860 census and Mary was still a Langston? Where did you get this information? Do actually have the record of marriage? Do you know if Mary was Dutch?

I REALLY appreciate it!!

This is really late, but if you have not yet found it the Shelby Co Tn deaths are online from a very early uninformative date at the Register of Deeds site

It also hold whole state deaths but without the actual image that you can get for Shelby Co. A real treasure trove since many from Mississippi went to Memphis for hospital treatment.

I am couple years late in the game here.. but does anyone have information on the Amanda Wilkerson who married Tobe Meadows - I am assuming she comes down how through Newton Wilkerson born around 1792-1795 in South Carolina but living in Tippah County, Mississippi during this time period.
