Our Mead family has been documented as living in the greater Virginia since 1780. (Ragland files) (DAR) (Census) The key to our entry lies in the documents of the independent city of Frederick where our first proven ancestor was presumably born. I believe that his mother was a Quaker and his father had ties to Congregationalism. The name of his sister, Emily Mead Cooper, is listed in his pension file. His middle name Bingham is thought to be the surname of a beloved family member a Congregationalist minister. However at Fort Frederick in 1754 there was one Samuel Bingaman. I have been told that William Bingham Mead used the Indian trail to remove to Ohio from Frederick and shortly thereafter William removed to North Carolina where he enlisted. As an injured soldier in a hospital he met his future wife Mildred Esther Davis. The couple setttled back to the Guyandot Ohio area at Big Sandy-eventually moving to the old Vancouver station in Kentucky. That is where their first son was born in 1798. Note: Read about the existence of Vancouver Settlement Station in what is now Louisa,Kentucky

Hello Nora,

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll see a Volunteer option on your profile page. Click that and leave us a short message here on your profile about your genealogical interests. A Greeters Project volunteer will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
