My father is law is Albert Meridieth..he always went by James. He had two daughters, Brenda and Mary from his first marriage and three daughters and one son from his second marriage. We were always told that he was from Sherman TX but have never found info on him until we found this thread. He married my mother in law, Rebecca Drew in Earle, Arkansas but later moved to Illinois. I could never find info on him and noticed that the spelling of the last name had been changed.
