FINALLY!!I now have an email address for you. Do I have data to share with you. Too much to post here.
Cindy, the name Miehls/Meals probably just was shortened when they entered this country.We find Miehls in Berks Co PA and we wonder if they are related to our line, as Samuel Meals was said to have been born around York Co PA but I HAVE FOUND NO PROOF AND THOSE THAT HAVE TOLD ME THIS, GIVE ME NO PROOF.Until I see 'prove in the puddin', I do not think this is our line, but...
In all my research, I have never found anything linking the Meals back to Germany, but that doesn't mean squat, because I'm not past Samuel and I see nothing in my tons of paperwork that would tell me he was born in PA, married in PA, came from Germany, England, or what.
I sent Faye Meals a letter the other day, so I hope she gave you this website's address, or someone did.
My address is PO Box 244, Bedford TX 76095-0244, drop me a line and let me send you some things I have on your line.
I use to write to Raymond Meals before he died and he shared data with me; Faye has sent me data and a few others. I have pictures of your line back to R C Meals, or Robinson Crusoe Meals.In an early census of Cleburne, Johnson Co., he appeared as ROBERT!
Some of your ancestors are buried at Price Chapel and Watts.
Go up to http://www.the-watchers.comhttp://www.the-watchers.com, click on genealogy and click into Meals data.If you print this, be aware that this site is HUGE and you may have to print out a lot of pages. Be careful!!Also, a picture of R C Meals is up on the site.
Can you identify any of the people in this picture, other than R C??
