Re: Frank Meade 1961 obit_ a step-sister surviving kin

Frank Meade's obituary shows he was born in Fishkill, NY and had a step-sister named Ella. If you check the 1880 US Census for Fishkill, Dutchess County, NY there is a Franklin and John "Mead", the right age, both are boarders in a differently named household. Evidently the brother, John Meade, died before 1961.

Would you care to have the 1958 obit of Hugh E. Meade? It describes in brief detail the circumstances of his death, etc.
