Hello, I beleive your great grandpa Joe was my great uncle, my grand father was John melvin meadors he had brothers and sisters I never met, Joe was one of his brothers, there dads name was john William meadors, mothers was Margaret Isabell Duncan. My grandmother was Lilly mae Martin she changed our name after she devorced John melvin and moved to Indiana with my dad and aunts. She added the W instead of the R because in her words it sounded less hillbilly. It turns out that thru a relative on the Duncan side of the family that out our family tree was already done and dates back to 1290 A.D. in Suffolk England. I Have done a lot of research and by talking with this gentleman we were able to go back from father to son to 1290.A.D. so if you want anymore info my email is jem_grand@Yahoo.com. Than you for responding, hope to here back from you.

Hi again Jeremy,
Was your father Oscar Lee Meadows? If so, your aunt's husband, Otis Grimes (Shirley Meadors Grimes), sent me a photo of him in his military uniform.Would be glad to pass it on to you if you don't have it. What was your mother's name? Otis mentioned that Oscar had been married more than once but only knew one wife's name, Patricia Taylor of St. Albans,UK.
