Thank you for your post again. I did check the WV vital records yesterday, and that's where I found the marriage info on James Meadows and Malinda Wyant for July 26, 1847. There was also marriage info for a James Meadows and a Lucy Dillon for 1848. I then checked Ancestry.com for the census info and that's how I found that the "William" listed on the 1870 census with his father James and mother Malinda was actually James "William" Meadows born abt. 1857 to James W. and Lucinda Malinda Wyant Meadows. I think the Wm. H. Meadows you were referencing was the son of James Meadows and Lucy Dillon Meadows born March 25, 1859 and his full name was William Henderson (Sonny) Meadows. My Great grandfather was born January 4, 1861 in Monroe Co, VA. His first son Charles Lewis Meadows was my grandfather born in July 1886, and his son Ernest Meadows was my father born in 1919.
