Joseph was the 8th child born to Lewis and Sarah.My records are sketchy, but I have him married abt. 1873 in Texas to Martha who was born in TN.I have four children born to them, all in Ellis County, TX.They are:
Joseph Lester Meharg born abt. 1874 Oscar Meharg, born abt. 1876 Edgar Lee Meharg, born abt. 1878 Grace Meharg, born abt. 1879
All were born in Ellis County, and I believe Edgar married but don't have his spouse's name.
Of the 14 children, Benjamin ended up in AR; Levi (my gg-grandfather-Eli was his twin) in TX;Joseph in TX; Nicholas stayed in AL; and Frances married and died in 1942 in AR.
Sounds like the right family.Let me know.I'm lucky enough to still have my grandmother, and will see if she remembers anything about Joseph and his family - she seems to know more about the Mehargs that were here in TX!
