|I am currently involved in a family home school geneology project with my two sons.We are researching our family history beginning with each of them and going back as far as possible.We would like to branch out as far as possible, also.We are currently researching the MEEKS family from Etowah Co. GA and the MERRITT family from around the Somerset, NJ and Hoopston, IL area.Many of the relatives remained in the Chicago, IL area.|
I am a current member of the D.A.R. and have the lineage from Annie Louise Baugh back to Richard Roundtree.I would, however, like to complete any of the blanks that currently exist in my files.
General information that I have aquired on these two families are as follows:MEEKS --Charles Edgar Meeks, Sr. owned the Atlanta Tribune at one time.He was born 4/15/1868 and died 11/10/1964.He was married to Annie Louise Baugh and eventually resided in Miami, FL.Annie was born 10/17/1874 and died 10/29/1958.
MERRITT -- John W. Merritt; born 9/8/1827, died 2/3/1911, married Sarah Elisabeth Taylor 12/11/1845.Sarah Elisabeth Taylor; born 3/5/1830, died 3/22/1909.Resided in Green Co. NY.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
