I am doing some research on my Meek Family line. They lived in Wayne County, Ohio and Henry County, Ohio. I am trying to find some family connections. I would like to hear from anyone that had Meek in either of those counties.

Below is what I have on them:


1840 Wayne Co. Census in Chippewa Twp.

Samuel Meek (my 4th great grandfather)

White Males
1 5-10
1 20-30

White Females
1 under 5yrs
1 20-30

1850 Wayne Co. Census in Chippewa Twp. (Name was spelled Meck in the index on Ancestry)

Samuel Meek - age 35 – Farmer – born Ohio
Nancy – age 42 – wife – born NY
Robt – age 13 – born Ohio
Phebe – age 12 – born Ohio
Thomas – age 7 – born Ohio
David – age 5 – born Ohio
Matty A – age 1 – born Ohio
Sarah J – age 1 – born Ohio

Matty (Martha) and Sarah were listed as twins on the census sheet. Martha is my ggg grandmother. Her parents moved to Henry County, Ohio between 1860-70. The family was living in 1860 Census in Vermillion Twp, Ashland Co., Ohio


Two spots down on the census sheet is a Robert Meck (Meek). I suspect he is the father of my Samuel Meek but I do not have concrete proof.


1850 Wayne Co. Census in Chippewa Twp. (Name was spelled Meck in the index on Ancestry)


Robert Meek - age 69 - born Maryland; farmer ---- #433
Phebe – age 65 - born NJ (blind)
Dorcas - age 38 - born PA
Matty A. – age 25 - born Ohio
Mary I Seeds/Suds – age 23, born Ohio (hard to make out last name)
Dewitt C Seeds/Suds – age 21 – born Ohio (hard to make out first name)
Matty A Seeds/Suds– age 5 – born Ohio
Susannah 15, born Ohio
Phebe J. 8, born Ohio

In the 1830 Census Robert Meek was listed living next door to a Thomas Meek. I suspect they were brothers.

If anyone would have any further information on this Meek family; I sure would appreciate any help on them. Please email me at genealogylookup@gmail.com
