Meikle Family Genealogy Forum
Family stories have my great grandfather, James Meikle, serving as mayor of Seattle. I believe I found information for him in Seattle that said he was James B. Meikle and moved to Seattle in 1899. This source reports he was born in Trumbull County, Ohio.
I do not know his wife's name. I do know he had two children--Moneta and James Bruce (my grandfather). Moneta married Walter Harris and lived in Los Angeles for many years. James Bruce married Florence Kesterson and died in 1917 in Oregon.
Does any of this ring a bell with anyone?
