Merideth/Meredith Arkansas/Tennessee

I am researching my Meridth Ancestors in Arkansas; they migraged from Tennessee but I don't know where and I can not connect them there. I am listing a few names in my tree; if anyone may have a connection to any of them please email me.

Japer Newton Merideth b. 1845 d. 1936; he had the following children: William Henry, Cornelius, George C., Newton Frank, Enon Thomas, Itha Obie, Ira Osmer, America Annie, Eva Jane, Dewey Ray, James Lawrence, Garland Minton, Daniel Pressley, Nancy Theressa.

I am also interested in William Merideth b. abt. 1819, he was from TN. In 1850 Census/Arkansas he was listed with wife Nancy J., children were Samuel, Mary and John.

James Merideth Sr. also listed in 1850 AR census with several children. James also came from TN. I cannot yet connect James and William to our Merideth family. I believe they are my ancestors but don't know how yet.

Jasper Newton Merideth was supposedly orphaned, his mother dieing at his birth and his father dieing when he was 3 years old. I understand he only had two siblings; Mary and James who were both deaf and dumb. I have found them in the census however unable to discover who Jasper's parents were.

Any information in re; of Merideth/Meredith family that might help me open another door would be appreciated. I do have a lot of information however I would like to connect to TN.

Anyone email me if you have or need information.

Thanks, Carolyn Jenks - Merideth
