I was very happy to see your message! Yes, we are part of the same family, that is, descendants of Oliver Hiram Mevis and Polly (Stafford) Mevis. Polly and Hiram brought their family from NY to MI in 1847. They had several children incl. sons, one of whom is in your direct line, who served in the Civil War. They also had several daughters including my great grandmother Hannah Amanda (Mevis) Greenwood. I am acquainted with the Plymouth Mevis family and children who now live in the Nashville, TN area. I have a lot of Mevis info. and I am happy to share materials. I am also stuck in regard to the ancestors of Polly (Stafford) Mevis and would appreciate any info. or leads that you may have regarding her. My address is: 10350 Inwood Road, Osceola, IN 46561 Tel. (219) 679-4496 E-mail:
