I have been seeing on some trees lately that Johanna Cuntze, presumed wife of Thomas Meade of Hanover, Virginia, was born in Switzerland or Germany and died in Russell County Virginia in her 90's. Although the theory has gone around forever that the mother of the Meade children was Johanna Cuntze, I've never seen the actual documentation that she was his wife, much less birth and death years, and places. I'd welcome any real verification one way or the other so that the maternal lineage can be researched with confidence. Are there official documents, original Bible records that actually belonged to Thomas and/or his children, or an original cemetery record/headstone that still exists with that information available?

I'm also curious to know how many descendant's of Thomas Meade of Hanover have done YDNA or autosomal DNA testing and what names of interest the testors have found?
