Obediah Meador--Father of Lucy? (Virginia)
I am working on tracing my Meador line.I descend from Lucy A. Meador who married John Basham.She is my 4th Great-Grandmother.
In Victor P. Meador's "Meador Families of Virginia and points west" he lists Lucy as the daughter of Obediah Meador.On Lucy's marriage record, it lists her as "daughter of Prudence, James Meador Surety."
I believe that James was her brother and perhaps Obediah was no longer living??
I am unclear who Obediah descends from... On "Janet's Geneology" page she lists Obediah as son of Josiah (son of Jonas), but other documentation I can find does not list Josiah as having a son Obediah.In Victor Meador's book, Obediah (6) is listed as Mary Ann's (5) son.Could this be Obediah Meador (6), father of Lucy... as Mary Ann's son, wouldn't he have a different surname?
1.Was Obediah Meador Lucy's father?
2.Was he married to Prudence (Wells?)?
3.Who were Obediah's parents?
4.Was there more than one Obediah?
If anyone has any information about the above people, please contact me at email@example.com.
Thank you in advance for your help!
