NOTE
according to the query on RootsWeb 16 Nov 1999 ...
John Jackson BYERS born 1796 married at Donaghmore Tyrone, married Anna Carson PARKE ... My 2xgrt grandmother Josepha Marie was born in Stewartstown in 1844 ... Josepha Marie incidentally married Samuel Meekan (born 1841 in Balteagh County Derry) 15/9/1874 in Dublin then immigrated to NZ that year ...
* from 1875 Samuel & Josepha had 3 children in NZ:
* 1875 - John Meekan
* 1877 - Hannah Ball Meekan
* 1882 - Latitia Connor Meekan
- after that I cannot find a death notice for Josepha but from 1892 a Samuel & Margaret Meekan had 3 children:
* 1892 - Samuel Meekan
* 1894 - 1903 James Meekan (aged 8 at Point Chevalier, son of the LATE Samuel)
* 1897 - Harry Byers Meekan (note the middle name)

Samuel was found as Meeken. He died in 1899 aged 58 (birth year as at link, 1841)
There are many Meakin dying in NZ but no Josepha
There is a Josepha Meekan dying in 1905 but aged 2 months

I suspected that the Josepha Marie above (born in 1901 and marrying Harry Shone would naturally be a child of Samuel & Josepha but she was not. She was a daughter of John & Mary Meekan, surely they were close relatives of Samuel.

Surnames: EDMONDS FREW GOODWIN KEANE MEEKAN PHIPPS SHONE STURY

I am researching Meekan/Kennedy families. I note that you have Josepha Marie Meekan's date of death as 1874 which should read 1974. She was half sister of my dad Norman Edward Kennedy. Mary married Alfred Kennedy after the death of her first husband John Meekan. Also John Meekan married Mary Strong NOT Stury. This should clear up the confusions.
