Notes for WILLIAM COLEMAN MEAD:
William C. Meads - HISTORY OF DAVIESS COUNTY
Page 509 & 510 Info under son Joseph H. Meads which says:

"Joseph H. Meads was born October 14th, 1846, in Washington Township, Daviess County, Indiana,
the son of William C. and his first wife Deliah Hays. William C. Meads was born in 1830, in
Washington Township, this county and state, and received his early education in the
neighboring schools. , {I was uncertain of this, as it would have made him about 14 when
married, but this is how it is listed in the History of Daviess County. It is possible that it is a
typo error, and date of birth should read 1820, but the article states also he was born in Daviess
County, after his parents arrived there about 1828. Another source state his date of birth 31 Mar
1824 in Maryland, which is probably closer to fact.} He began farming as a very young man and
owned a farm here which he sold out at a later date and decided to remove to the state of
Kansas, where he purchased two hundred acres of land near Topeka, where he continued to
farm until the time of his death in 1900. His first wife (Deliah) lived until the year 1849, and
during her life gave birth to the following children: Alfred D., born in 1844, who was in the
civil war as a member of Company E., Sixth Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry, was wounded in
the battle of Dallas, Texas, and served his country three years; Joseph, born 1844 and John who
died in infancy.
His second marriage was to Sarah Grow, daughter of Christopher Grow, and to that union was
born Christopher, who drowned at age 17: William, living in Oklahoma; Rousseau, a resident of
Kansas; Sentna, now residing in Oklahoma, and Emanuel, postmaster at North Topeka, Kansas.
He was a practical member of the Christian Church, and advocate of the principals of the
Republican Party, and personally a man who was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him."
