From an 1888 obituary - At Johnsville, Bradley, "Mr Meek was a well-known and highly respected citizen of Bradley county, whose untimely death will cause general regret and sorrow among a large circle of warm friends. He was at Johnsville, his former home, yesterday morning on a brief business trip, when he suddenly fell dead, supposed to be from heart disease. He was a cousin of Mrs. Wood E. Thompson and Mrs. James Mitchell of this city."
