Looking for Thomas Mead born in Virginia (I believe) in the early 1700's
My mother was Vivian Meade born in 1916. Her father was James Madison Meade born in 1881 in Missouri, probably in Rolla. James father was John Christopher Mead married to Sarah Dykes in 1864 in Rolla. John was in the Civil War. I have documentation of all the previous.
John's father was William Minor Mead married to Berthania Branham. William Minor (Born 1801) was the son of William Mead and Sarah Garland.
William Mead's father was Thomas Mead. According to guardianship papers filed in Virginia in 1770, William and two of his brothers (Thornton and Minor) were put in the care of two guardians. Their father's name is given as Thomas...with varying birth dates from other sources. No mother was named.
I believe that is pretty much what we have.
Thanks for your website.
