Notes and additional information from Wendell Meggs

*** Descendants of John T. Meggs as submitted by Wendell Meggs
James Anderson Meggs, born Sept. 21, 1872. First his name never was Meigs. His father was Stephen Strider Meggs at the time of my grandfather's birth. Stephen Strider changed the spelling of his name later on. My grandfather was the oldest of 12 children. 8 of them changed the speling of their surname to Meigs at the urging a a relative. If you want the story, I can send it to you. SECOND, The children you have listed for James Anderson Meggs and Frances Parlee Meggs are incorrect. They had seven children. They were Ludie Lee, born 1892, Samuel Raymond, born 1894, William Wordner, born 1897 , Hilliard Woodfin, born 1899, Gertha, married Paul Brown, born 1901 , Jesse Edgar, born 1907, and Beleta, born 1912.
