FULLER, HEEDE, HOLLAND, MEADS, MEEDS, TAYLOR posted by Gerald D.Weaver on Friday, December 7, 2012

Interested in any information on Jonothan MEADS or MEEDS residing in E. Irving, Benton,Iowa in 1880 census, although erroneously listed as John HEEDE. His daughter EvalineTAYLOR and her daughter Eva J. TAYLOR were in same household.On the same page was his son Edwin MEADS C1838 Michigan and his wife Arabella FULLER and their children: Charles c1862 Mi,Gussie c1865 IA, Lee c1867 IA and Albert 6/12. Jonathan was residing in 1860 at Assyria, Barry Co Mi,1850 at Grass lake,Jackson Co Mi listed as born 1797 New Hampshire. His then eldest son Alonzo listed as idiotic so believe the Jonothan of 1840 London, Monroe Co Mi and 1830 of Granby,Oswego Co Ny are the same as list a son of that exact age range as "deaf & dumb" He is possibly the Jonothan Mead(s) born 1796 at Alstead,Cheshire co NH son of Ephraim & Lois Royce. I need to see his will or intestate papers for list of heirs. I belive my gr. grandmother Elizabeth( Mead) HOLLAND c1837 NY who resided 1870 & 1880 at Napoleon, Jackson Co Mi is his daughter as she listed her father as born "N.H." Did Jno. die in Benton or Tama Co's Iowa?? Are any MEADS -MEEDS descwendants yet in the area? Any assistance appreciated. Thank you! Sincerly Gerald d. Weaver
Benton Co Ia or perhaps Tama Co Ia??
