0161. Daniel Meader (1826 - 1894)
Daniel Meader, son of Ephraim Meader (1785-1871) [0063] and Hannah Cook (1792-1878), was born in Sandwich, Carroll, NH on March 2, 1826 and died on October 6, 1894 in his 69th year. On February 20, 1848 his Friends' certificate of intention of marriage with Dorithea Straw of Lyman, NH was declared void. On October 19, 1857 he married Louisa Neal, born January 10, 1826, sister of Hannah Neal who married Daniel's brother Oliver [0159] and daughter of Elijah Neal (1782-March 19, 1857) and Comfort Morrell (1788-August 12, 1871) of North Berwick, ME.
He received the Deborah Hill Quicks farm near Albion, Providence, RI on the death of Mrs. Quicks and moved there in 1847. For several years he lived there with his wife. His son Francis later lived on the farm, Daniel having moved to Saylesville, RI to live with his son Walter.
The children of Daniel Meader and Louisa Neal were:

0292 i. Walter Dennis Meader, born December 27, 1858.
0293 ii. Francis Herbert Meader, born May 23, 1862.
iii. William Oliver Meader, born May 4, 1865 and drowned May 13, 1869.

Daniel owned Hearthside, in Lincoln, RI from 1890-1901. Daniel Meader died in 1894 and Hearthside was passed on to his wife. Louisa Meader sold Hearthside to Frederick Clark Sayles in 1901. He was listed as a farmer but he also sold 37 plots of land in Lincoln between 1875-1894 suggesting that he may have been a developer or real estate speculator. (The census records of 1890 and 1895 have been lost so not much is known about what was happening at that time). Prior to owning Hearthside, Daniel owned the "Three Holes in a Chimney" house located on Old River Road in Lincoln, RI built in 1781. Hearthside is now a historic house museum and is and it is on the National Register of Historic Places.
