1039. John Edward Meader (1848 - 1919)
John Edward Meader, son of Samuel J. Meader (1818-1900) [1018] and Sarah Scribner (1824-1860), was born in Henry Co., OH December 16, 1848 and died in Dent, MN July 13, 1919. December 30, 1869 in Mitchellville, IA he married Emma Ann Young, born May 15, 1851 in Tipton Co., IN and died October 17, 1915 in Dent. In 1870, according to the Census, the young couple were living at the home of her father, John S. Young, in Polk County. An obituary of John Meader reads in part:
“In 1854 he moved to Apple Grove, Polk County, Iowa. He was married in 1869 and lived near Mitchellville, Iowa for two years. Their son Henry was born there. They moved to a homestead in Republic County, Kansas and there their son Ellis was born in the sod house on the claim. A scourge of grasshoppers which for two years destroyed their crops compelled him to return to Iowa, and for three years they lived in the old neighborhood. Here May was born in 1876. They then returned to Brantford, Kansas and lived there until 1894. Here Jessie, Earl and Lloyd were born. They then returned to Mitchellville and made their home there until 1909. In the spring of the year they moved to Thompson, Iowa. They moved to Dent, MN in 1914 and for a little more than a year they lived on a farm near Star Lake. After his wife's death he lived with his son Henry.”
