Ralph Curtis Meader, son of Nathan Meader (1843-1900) [1046] and Mary McKee (1840-1817), was born at Auburn, Nebraska January 4, 18?3 and died August 9, 1928 at Byers, CO. He was buried in the Fairmount Cemetery, Denver. Raised at Auburn and Highland, Nebraska, he married and had gone to Burlington, CO to homestead when their second child was born. After his father's death he returned to Nebraska to help his mother sell the farm. The family then moved to Fairfield, NE where they farmed until they moved to Byers. There he served on the board of education, and the family joined the Presbyterian church as no Methodist church was there.
