>Do you have any connections to the MEADS in Steuben co., New York? My MEADS are in the Hornell area.

Hello, I supposedly descend from John MEAD and Hannah POTTER (BROWN?) of Greenwich, Fairfield Co. CT, through sons John, Jr., Samuel and Ebenezer MEAD. My Meads left Greenwich for Westchester County to Warren County to Steuben County to Allegany Co.--where most ofthe family stayed. My grandfather, Lester L. Mead, left Andover, Allegany Co.
