1850 Tuscarawas Co., OH - Oxford Tsp. - August 10, 1850 - Page 343

Daniel MEEK 47 - $3000 - MD - farmer
Matilda MEEK 46 - MD
Rachel TIDERICK 26 - OH
Emily MEEK 18 - OH
Sylvester MEEK 14 - OH
Winfield Tiedrick 2 - OH

It appears that your Winfield was the son of Rachel MEEK and Unknown TIEDRICK.

Your Unknown TIDRICK was most likely from Coschocton Co., OH, as I find a great many TIDRICK marriages there, but since Rachel was from Tuscarawas Co., she was most likely married there. The marriage most likely took place, between 1842 - 1843. (The CD ROM I have, does not contain Tuscarawas Co. marriages on it, and only marriages AFTER 1850.)

After checking for Daniel MEEK, I found at least two entries for him.

Daniel Hitt MEEK born 1802 - died 1874 - md. Matilda COLE who was born 1803.

The father of Daniel was Isaac MEEK (October 14, 1746 in Anne Arundel Co., MD.)
The mother of Daniel was Rachel HEDGE

They had a daughter Rachel MEEK, who was born in 1824, and married Lawrence TIDRICK, who was born 1819 and died 1849. They were married 1842.

Rachel and Lawrence had a daughter, Nancy TIDRICK, who was born 1844, and married a Stephen A. POLLOCK in 1860.

So here are some facts for you to work from.
