Kay; Thank you for your reply. Your Anna Catherine Meves was born before mine. And my Ann Catherine Meves madein name was Graves. But they were both from Schleswig,Germany and they both seattled in Davenport,Iowa.William Meves father was Hans Meves born Schleswig,Germany and mother was Magdelana Arp born in Holstein,Germany.In 1864 William Meves enlisted in the Army at Davenport, Iowa.I beleave Hans Meves was probably born in the 1820's. Do you know if Anna had any brothers?
Hans Meves immigrated from Germany to Davenport,Iowa in 1850.Hans deid about 1856 in Iowa.This is all i know on my Meves. Sandra Pingel
