William L "Will" Meeker
Birth: Nov. 7, 1860
Clermont County
Ohio, USA
Death: Dec. 10, 1942
Cincinnati
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA

William L. Meeker's death certificate states parents as EDWARD MEEKER & MARY DICKEY. (Copy of DC with photos.)

Even though William's headstone & death certificate say he was born in 1860, he is listed on the 1860 Census that was dated June 29, 1860. His age was listed as 8/12 (8 months old). Since his birth month has always been listed as November, it is logical that he would be considered almost 8 months old when the 1860 census was taken IF he was born in 1859.

1850 Census shows William's father, Edward Meeker, at the age of 11.

1850 CENSUS: Clark Twp., Co. of Brown, Ohio:
James Stout 28, Matilda Stout 39, Jefferson Meeker 19, Van B. Meeker 16, Franklin Meeker 13, Edward Meeker 11, Leonidas Meeker 9

1860 Census shows William L. living with his parents & Grandmother, Matilda, & her second husband, James Stout.

1860 CENSUS: Clark Twp., Co. of Brown, Ohio:
James Stout 40, Matilda Stout 49,
Charles Meeker 8
Listed in same residence, different family:
Edward Meeker 21, Mary A. Meeker 20,
Wm. L. Meeker 8/12

William's grandmother:
MATILDA NALLS MEEKER STOUT

So far no documentation of William's middle name starting with the initial "L". I have wondered if perhaps it is Leonidas, named after his father's younger brother.
