Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was going through photos with my mom and came across a photo of my grandpap Beals standing beside this really tall guy and asked mom who this was...she told me it was her mom's dad, James Thomas Meckley. My grandma was Fay LaRue Meckley and she married James Edward Beals.

I remember my grandpap Beals, he was tall 6'6" and James Thomas Meckley was almost a full head taller! I now knew where my son, Brian got his heighth. He's over 6'10" tall.

Who were the Meckley's and where did they come from?

I live a mile from where James Thomas Meckley and Mary Stagner Meckley raised their family until the mine closed and Mary died. He left the area with his two youngest daughters and not much was known after that.

I was curious about my family genealogy and that was the start of my research.

Most of the Vibbert clan st8ll lives in and around the NW Pa areas. We had a family reunion last June and will most likely do another this summer. I announced you to all family on Facebook and asked that they say hello and add you. I'll make sure you are invited to the next reunion.

RE: Minnie Meckley Burley Pennington
Well hello cousin. We are related somehow then. Minnie is my great grandmother. When she was married to Alonza Burley she had my grandmother Roberta " Bert"; my father was named after his grandfather Alonza.
