Does anyone have a reference, other than the 1870 census, which shows Meeka's name to be Milcah? My sister is going to look in my mom's notes. [[Tindle-61]]
I have checked what I can find on Ancestry and Family Search The 1870 census is the only record showing the name Milcah. All others, show Meeka. It is most likely a nickname. There are even a couple of variations of that nickname. :(
I looked at all of the "Public" family trees with a Micah, and there are a lot of them with the name Micah, they all use the same source however. The 1870 census.
I know my mom did research on my dad's side of the family, which this is, but do not know what she researched on Meeka in particular. Just throwing this out there in the case that someone, has something, somewhere! :) Keeping fingers crossed.
