Looking for Branham from North Carolina
Berthania Branham was my great great grandmother. Her husband was William Minor Mead. She was supposed to have been born in North Carolina in 1805; married William Minor Mead in 1829 in Roane County, Tennessee. I have no idea who her parents or siblings are.
Berthania was William's second wife. They had 9 children as follows:
William Jackson Mead born February 15, 1830 in Tennessee; John Christopher Mead/Meade born 1831 in Monroe County, INdiana; Maryline Mead born 1832 in INdiana; Clementine Mead born 1834 in INdiana; Daniel Monroe Mead born 1837 in INdiana; Louisa Mead born 1839; Merilla Mead born May 02, 1842 in Missouri;Theresa Ellen Mead born March 23, 1844 in Missouri and last Lucrecia Mead born in 1846 in Missouri.
This family came to Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri from Indiana in the mid to late 1840's. They are in the 1850 Federal Census as living in Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri.
My ancestor in this family is John Christopher Mead who married Sarah Dykes in Rolla, Missouri in 1864 while he was in the Union Army during the Civil War.
One of their children was my grandfather, James Madison Meade.
Thanks for any help you can give.
