George Eureka Mead
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul., 1878
Holton
Muskegon County
Michigan, USA
Death: 1961
Eucha
Delaware County
Oklahoma, USA

George Eureka Mead was born to Nancy Sylvina Rowe and Amos Jefferson Mead July of 1878 in Holton, Michigan.

He married Cynthia Ann Chandler on October 28th of 1901 in what was then known as Indian Territory and the couple went on to have at least six children.

In 1913, tragedy struck when two of his children, Nancy Wenona Mead and Warren Eugene Seidell Mead passed away in a fire.

Although I do not have information on his divorce, Cynthia remarried to a man by the name of Charles Oliver Stephens in October of 1921 in Creek County, Oklahoma.

George was alleged to have been an acquaintance of Cherokee Bill, the notorious outlaw and figure of the Wild West.

He was said to have kept two loaded pistols hanging from his bed and according to family lore, he was said to have been on the lam from the law, and that while on the run, he killed another man, for which he did time in federal prison.

He was also said to have been a cattle thief.

Despite this, if his photographic history is any indication, he appears to have been a man that cared much for his family.

He passed away in Eucha, Delaware, Oklahoma in 1961.
