In Reply to: Jacob Mobely Meadors / Jane W. Harmon circa 1799-1874 era by Beverly Meadors/Childers of 576

Here's the geneaolgy:

Ambrose Meades, b 1580 in England/died 24 Dec 1661, Rappahannock, Virginia Colony.
Thomas Meades m Sarah Wellstead
Thomas Meador Jr. m Sarah Hoskins
John Meador m (1)Elizabeth White (2) Mary Ann Aubrey (Awbrey)
Jason Meador (son of John & Mary Ann) m Elizabeth Stone
Thomas Meador m Keziah Moberly
John Meador m (1) Jemima Melton (2) Delilah Jones
Jacob Moberly Meador (son of John & Delilah)m Jane W. Harmon
William James Meador m Critty Ann Moore

My ggg-grandmother was Sarah Jane Elizabeth Meador who married by ggg-grandfather, Absalom Rorie. They were both born in White Store, Anson County, North Carolina.
Parents of Sarah Meador Rorie were Lewis Meador and his second unknown wife. Here is how Lewis Meador, my gggg-grandfather connects to your Meador line: Lewis Meador's parents were Jason Meador and Elizabeth Stone. So my Lewis was a brother to your Thomas Meador. Lewis Meador's first wife was Keziah Moberly's sister, Susannah Moberly.
Their brother Jason Meador Jr. married Sarah "Sally Moberly; Their brother, Job Meador married Elizabeth Moberly; and their sister, Drucilla Meador married Edward Moberly jr. I assume they ran out of Moberly's to marry because the two younger Meador sisters married other than Moberly siblings :-)

My family has always spelled the name Meador,whereas your line added an "s" and made it Meadors. Another line in the midwest changed the spelling to Meadows. From my research I've found that the English name Meadows is derived from Meadow, a field, whereas our Meador is derived from Meade, which also means field, but is a different family (except for the ones in our Meador line who purposely changed the spelling to Meadows).
