George H. Meiks

Among those who joined the tide of emigration to the West in the first half of the nineteenth

century was Jacob Meiks, born in Pennsylvania in 1811, of Holland Dutch stock. He made his

way to Indiana in early manhood, entered land in Rush county and followed agricultural pursuits until

his death, in 1874. His son, Sampson Meiks, was born on his father's farm, August 9, 1837, mar-

ried Barbara Holbrook, and continued in the business of farming until his earthly career was ended,

March 25, 1895. In the fall of 1863 he enlisted, and was mustered in as a private in Company H,

Sixteenth Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry, later transferred to the Thirteenth Indiana Cavalry and

served until November, 1865, when he was honorably discharged. He drew a pension of seventeen

dollars a month, on account of disability incurred and had the trputation of having made a faithful sol-

dier during his time at the front. Two of his brothers, Albert and George, were also in the Union

army and the whole family was noted for their patriotism. Sampson Meiks bought a farm in Marion

township, Shelby county, and here he reared his family, consisting of six children, of whom four are

living. His wife was descended from North Carolina parents and one of her uncles was a Union sol-

dier. Matthew Brown, her great-grandfather on the mother's side, was in the Revolutionary war,

and Wesley W. Brown, of Union township, is an uncle. Of her children, Alva and Mary are long

since dead. John W., a Marion township farmer, married Tillie, daughter of Thomas Linville,

and has two children, Carroll and Frank. Maggie J., widow of Lewis W. Mohr, who died in

1905, resides on a farm in Union township, her children being Earl S., Leroy, Edna and Waldo.

Scott, who is unmarried, lives with his widowed mother on the home place.

George H. Meiks, the other of Sampson's four living children, was born on his father's farm

in Marion township, Shelby county, Indiana, September 16, 1873. After graduating in 1890 he taught

school for several years in Union and Marion townships. He spent a year at Valparaiso, taking a

course in the Normal school of that place and put in the same length of time at a later date in the

Marion (Indiana) Normal. In 1896 he began the study of law in the office of Adams & Carter, at

Shelbyville, then attended the Indianapolis Law School two years, and at the same time continued his

studies in the office of ex-Judge Byron K. Elliott, of Indianapolis, until 1898. He was graduated in the

class of 1898, numbering fifty-two students, and the second prize in a contest for the best scholarship.

In the class he received honorable mention, with five others, for good work. In September, 1898, a

few days before his twenty-fifth birthday, he opened an office in the Sutton building, corner of Harrison

and Broadway. He was alone until April 29, 1899, when he formed a partnership with Charles Hack,

ex-County Prosecutor, and changed his office to the Knights of Pythias building. In 1904 they re-

moved to the second floor of the Hamilton building, where they have since remained. In December,

1906, Mr. Meiks was chosen to fill a vacancy on the school board, and was re-elected for a full term

in June, 1907, and is now serving as treasurer of the board. In 1906-07 he served acceptably as

County Attorney of Shelby county, and in 1907 was especially honored by being invited to deliver

the memorial address before the local post of the Grand Army of the Republic, which was appropriate

and much appreciated, as Mr. Meiks is himself the son of a veteran.

Mr. Meiks is past master in Lodge No. 28, Free and Accepted Masons, also is a member of

Chapter 20, Royal Aarch Masons, and is a deacon of the Baptist church.

May 16, 1900, he married Stella, daughter of William C. and Angie (Stafford)

Thompson, the former a retired farmer, of Shelbyville. Mrs. Meiks is well educated and a good

musician. Mr. and Mrs. Meiks have two children, Lyman Thompson, born October 22, 1902, and

Delores, born December 30, 1904.

PROMINENT COUPLE IS WEDDED AT COVINGTON

HARRY L. BROWN AND MISS ROBERTA BARNES WERE MARRIED IN THAT CITY

---------------

WEDDING TOOK PLACE MORE THAN A MONTH AGO,

BUT WAS KEPT SECRET FROM

ALL BUT PRINCIPAL'S PARENTS -- NEWS OF IT IS GREAT SURPRISE HERE.

---------------

Slipping quietly away and marrying, returning home and continuing to live as though they were yet single and with their

many friends entirely ignorant of the fact of the marriage having taken place, and then giving them all the greatest and most

pleasant surprises of their lives was what Harry L. Brown and Miss Roberta Barnes, a prominent couple of this county

did, and now their friends are wondering how it all happened without their even suspecting anything and are trying to make

themselves believe the truth.

The wedding of Mr Brown and Miss Barnes took place June 14 in Covington, KY, the ceremony being performed by

Rev Carlisle, a widely known minister of that city. Remaining in Covington for two days, the newlyweds then returned to their

homes here, informed their parents of the eventful happening, and left their friends "in the dark". Mr Brown continued to live at

his own home and Noah Barnes, who resides two and one-half miles northeast of this city ..... Only through the bride's

telling some of her friends here did the secret finally leak out.

Mrs Brown is twenty-three years old, and is a daughter of Mr and Mrs Noah Barnes, who reside two and one-half

miles northeast of this city. She is beautiful and charming, and of a very companionable disposition. She is a former student of

the local high school, and she enjoys the possession of the warm friendship of many in this city with whom she became

acquainted while a student there. Mr Brown is thirty-one years old, and is a son of Mr and Mrs Charles Brown, of near

Manilla. He is interested in farming and saw-milling, and is an energetic young man of sterling qualities which make for success.

Their many friends in the county are pleased to wish them many years of married life blest with all the happiness that this

world can afford.
