Looking for Branham from North Carolina

Query by meadbranham

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.

G'day, please edit this journal to separate BRANHAMMEAD with a comma, that way names will become clickable links back to surname wiki pages and other researchers of the same surnames.

The more information you include in your journals, the greater your chances of contact by others. For example, what were the children's names of Berthania and William MEAD etc.?

There's lots of ways to find out information (and without costing a cent), try tribal pages USA death index; familysearch.org; rootschat; rootsweb etc. Links should be in all surname wiki pages at the homepage of familytreecircles.

And try this The Surname Navigator it's an amazing website that is a genealogical search engine. Just click on a country from the drop-down list, type your surname in, then press search. Then wait as 10 or more window boxes will open up full of information, including the familysearch LDS site.

Thanks, I corrected the original names with a comma. Then added family members and my connections. The Bibb family lineage is on the Mead line. William Minor Mead's mother was Sarah Garland married to William Mead. Sarah's parents were Elizabeth Bibb married to Nathaniel Garland.
