THE MEEK(s) FAMILY


While there are variations in the spelling, our original ancestor appears to have spelled the name Meek. However, some of his descendents added an 's'. Our earliest known Meek, was Samuel Meek, father of Richard who married Phoebe Taylor. They were the parents of David Meek who married Catherine Varner. They were the parents of Eliza Jane Meek who married Willis Hamilton Shoults, the parents of my grandmother who married John William Weekley. Willis Hamilton Shoults died when their children were quite young and Eliza Jane had to care for her small children. Her father in-law (Sampson Shoults) had a covered bridge built across the creek that separated their properties. Eliza made carpets out of rags for people with an old rug weaver. She sold butter, eggs and garden items. The family raised hay and corn for their horses. When her bachelor son, Lester died, the property was sold and has changed hands a couple of times. The old house was burned down and the remaining buildings gave way to the ravages of time. I have a barn door hinge and a piece of board from the ruins of the old barn. Eliza Jane Meek reportedly rode horseback (sidesaddle) to Newark, Ohio about 1862 to see President Lincoln when he came through by train.

Notes for JESSE ABRAHAM WALKER:

From Transcript of the Walker Family History written by Nellie Worrell Hitsman on September 30th, 1933

Jesse Abram Walker was born in Pennsylvania, and his wife, Phoebe Catherine Meeks, was born in Ohio. They must have been married in Ohio and had most of their children there, then came to Iowa in an early day. Grandfather was always poor and lived on a small place not his own. He worked for who ever needed a hand. He died in July or August 1870 or 1872. Over-heated or a sun stroke, in the hot weather. Grandmother died 10 or 12 years later, the winter I was 18. It was her third stroke. Both of them are buried in the Ontario, Iowa, Cemetery. Grandfather was a deacon in the Ontario Christian Church. Their children:

Mary Elizabeth Walker married Marmion Vest and had 7 children. Eldoren, Will, Ollie, Belle, Jennie, Arthur, and Ada.

Asa Walker enlisted in the Civil War and died at Benton Barracks, Missouri, from the measles. unmarried.

Jane Walker also died single. She had a sweetheart named Wood Baldwin.

Nancy Walker, my mother, married William Worrell. She was born in 1842 and died in California in 1929. Their children were, Nellie, Ed, Laura, Willie, Libbie, Hattie, Bert, Arthur, and Harry. My brother, Willie, left home many years ago, when he was 18 or 19. We never heard where he was or what became of him.

Lavina Walker married Christopher Frank Gibson and had 5 children. Edith May Palmer, Sarah Frances, Ida, G. Albert, and Jessie. All dead except G. Albert of near Madrid and May Palmer in Des Moines. (1933).

Henry Walker married Hattie Albright. Lived in Ogden. Henry was shot by a negro at Frasier, Iowa about 1904. They had 8 children. Mary, Elsie, Delbert (Bud), Harriett, Mildred, Carrie (Cassie), John, and Vera. Cassie married John Northway, an old stage driver. their children, Minnie, Delbert, Asa, and Bertha. (This is reported to be in error. Carrie is really reported to have married Edward Davis with whom she had a daughter, Vera Davis, and a son. They later divorced and she married Oren Sands. (Per Betty Larsen Berentson)

John M. Walker married Lottie Cameron. They had one son, Delbert, single. Uncle John died the same day as my mother, May 15, 1929. Amanda Ellen Walker married Charles Webb. She died and left a young baby. He was out West in Colorado the last I heard. The Baby, died, I think.

The older ones are all dead. There are lots of cousins scattered around everywhere. My Mother and Uncle John were the last two of this generation. Uncle John died at 3:00 PM and mother at 9:30 PM, May 15, 1929. John in Wisconsin and Mother in California. Strange things happen. I always thought a lot of my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Aunt Mandy was 15 when I was 9, she used to dress me up and curl my hair on rags. I stayed there quite a lot. Uncle John was 18 or 19. Uncle Henry older, but unmarried then.
