Meade of Elm, Magoffin County, that his closest relative was John C. Meade, and that he was born May 4, 1900. He was found to be of medium height and slender build, and he had black eyes and black hair. Not being able to read or write, he signed the card with an "X."

According to a newspaper article about her 85th birthday party, Gertrude Hamilton Meade, daughter of the late Isaac and Louisa Conley Hamilton, was born July 3, 1899 in Morgan County [although it's July of 1897 and she's 2 years old in the 1900 census], and was the wife of the late Sam Meade, who died in 1957.
