the 2 familes before are 2 single men named
Walter E Meekem age 29 (1881) and Frank E Meekem age 22 (1888) both single
Walter b California and Frank b Oregon both list father b Michigan and mother b California they are probably brothers to Bertha Eleanor

I tried to find Walter, Frank and both parents on the 1920 census at the LDS Pilot site but had no luck
I tried Mecum, Meekem and Meecum

Dont ever give up it took me 10 years to find my 3rd grandfather's death date and place
We still dont know where they buried him but he died of disease at the end of the Civil War so we erected a memorial ordered by me and donated by the VA to him in Mar 2008 in a cemetery where his mother was a founding charter member and 2 of his sons and one sister are for sure buried
We think another sister and his mother are also there unmarked.
