Meacham Family Genealogy Forum
On pages 676 and 677 of "The Book of Family Remembrance and Genealogy With Allied Lines," compiled by Leonidas De Von Mecham, J. Arthur Meacham quotes at length from "A Brief History of My Life" by Edward Thomas Meacham, a grandson of Dr. Thomas Meacham. Edward describes his grandfather as a great hunter. The last two paragraphs on P. 677 are, "The writer has in his possession the hunting knife with a nine-inch blade; the powder horn, with his initials T. M., carved on it, a shot pouch, and a fish-basket, or creel, which he had made; also several deeds and papers signed by Thomas Meacham."
Unfortunately, as this is punctuated, I can't tell whether "the writer" who had these items was Edward Thomas Meacham or J. Arthur Meacham. I believe I am a great-great-great-great grandson of Dr. Thomas. I am an outdoor writer (www.storiesbyjohn.com) and it would thrill me to see his knife, powder horn, fish basket and papers, or even pictures of them. Can anyone tell me where they are today?
