Re: SAMUEL MEEK and ROBERT MEEK (More Information)

I assume Thomas Meek is related to Robert. Maybe a possible brother. In Maple Grove Cemetery in Chippewa Twp. - Robert Meek - died Sept. 11, 1852 & Thomas Meek - died July 19, 1816 at age 37

I located the burial in Maple Grove Cemetery for Darcus Meek husband Hugh T. Hull - died April 12, 1856 - age 57. Darcus was a daughter of Robert Meek. She married Hugh Hull on July 19, 1853. She was approx 40 years old. I doubt they had any children together.

There is a marriage record for a Phebe Meek to Thomas Laskin/Gaskin on June 23, 1853. This could be Robert Meek daughter or possible his wife.

Here are a few probate court index records I located. It could be possible thru these records I could connect my Samuel Meek to Robert Meek. Getting the information from them is what I need to try connect the family.

Robert Meek - 799 1/2
Robert Meek - 1607 (I bet this is the one I am looking for)
Thomas Meek - 403
Thomas Meek - M-113

Living next door to Robert Meek is Wm Searight in 1850 Wayne Co. Census in Chippewa Twp. His wife name is Elizabeth. Notice the children names. I believe this is Elizabeth Meek, a daughter of Robert Meek. Her daughters have the same names as her sisters.

Wm Searight born 1807
Elizabeth born 1817
Dorcas V - born 1834
Pheby J born 1837
G.W. born 1839
Matty A born 1843
Zeller B born 1845
Clay C born 1847

I am hoping the more facts I can gather on Robert Meek family will lead me to make the connection that Samuel Meek is his father.
