0098. George Franklyn Meader (1783 - p.1868)
George Franklyn Meader, son of Robert Meader (1743-1815) [0036] and Deborah Coker (1746-1826), was born on Nantucket June 23, 1783 and was living in Easton, Washington, NY at the time of the 1865 Census, and died in 1868. A George F. Meader served during the war of 1812 in the 156th Regiment (VanSchaik's), New York Militia as Sergeant Major and Lieutenant. This may have been the same person, remember that George F. Meader was a Friend; no other George F. Meader in our records could have served at that time.
He settled on a farm in Easton on the Old Turnpike, now Route 40. His lands included the present Meadow View Hatchery and part of the present [1966] Hillman Farm. It was east of and in sight of his father's farm.
March 14, 1805 he married Charlotte Bromley of Danby, VT, born February 8, 1784, sister of Polly [0097] and cousin of Lucy [0096]. Both were living on the farm with their son Robert in the Census of 1865. They were probably buried in the South Quaker Meeting House Cemetery.
In 1780 the Saratoga [Easton] Monthly Meeting approved the establishment of a Preparative Monthly Meeting in Danby, and this in 1795 became independent of the Saratoga Monthly Meeting. There a continued to be frequent contact between Easton and Danby Friends.
