Hi. I'm Isaac's ggggrandaughter, or something like that. My grandfather was the one who gave the info that Abraham married Sarah Fields, and there are plenty of Fields in the area of Butler Co. where Abe's kids were raised, but in the 1850 census he is living with a wife Catherine and Liz's death certificate lists her mother's maiden name as Gardner, no first name. I have recently uncovered that Liz was married to the James Canan and then to a Leary/Larry/Lary after Canan. I've made contact with the Canans and they verified this and gave me their branch. But I have no Meekers.
I have a couple thousand descendants of Abraham in my data base, having built on the research done by Edna Hogue in the 1960s, but still cannot connect any further back. Made an exciting discovery this week, reading old Butler Co. newspapers. If you remember, Abraham had a son William (My gggrandfather. This week I found an ad of land for sale in Muddycreek Twp. Butler Co. which was described as bordering on the land of "William Updegraph." My William would only be 5 years old, having been born in 1808, and he's in Fayette Co. until about 1813. Could this be Isaac's brother and be the reason the family migrated up to Butler Co.?
Would like to swap info with you.
