Joshua Meek


By Christopher A. Meek.

14. Joshua Meek was born on 20 Mar 1773. He died on 4 Sep 1847. He married Elizabeth Hedges on 31 Oct 1797. She was born between 1770 and 1780. She was the daughter of Silas Hedges and Margaret Hoagland. They were reported in the 1820-1840 census of Smithfield TWP, Jefferson Co., OH. Census records indicate that Joshua had as many as 6 sons and 5 daughters. These records also indicate that the older female in the 1840 census was born between 1790 and 1800. This would indicate that Elizabeth died before 1840. The children are not verified.
