Dinah was born about 1696, the oldest child of John Meador and his second wife.
Dinah is sometimes called "Dinah Esther", but this is a reflection of mistaken research at some time in the past. People at this time did not have two given names. In Dinah's case, it would appear that sometime in the past someone has confused Dinah with her older half-sister, Esther.
The problem may be that Dinah is named in her father's will, while Esther is not. Esther, on the other hand, is named in their father's bequest to the children of his first marriage, made prior to his second marriage. Esther died before her father made his will, and Dinah, of course, was not born until after her father's remarriage.
Dinah married George Tribble prior to October 1721 (she is named Dinah Trible in her father's will). In 1722 she and George were living in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, where George purchased land. In 1725, when George sold the land in Spotsylvania Coutny, he and Dinah were living in King and Queen County, possibly on land that became part of Caroline County in 1727.
Dinah and George continued to live in Caroline County, where they were likely neighbours of Dinah's brother Jonas. It was there that Dinah died, sometime between 1741 and 1744.

His focus is on Dinah's brother Jonas, and he mentions Dinah only in passing.]

↑ Bequests to children of a previous marriage made prior to a parent's remarriage were not unusual at that time, meant to ensure that the children of the previous marriage were protected from the possible consequences of a parent's remarriage.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Dinah by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Dinah:
