Arthur Meighan
My husband has Meighan ancestors, but not descendants of Arthur Meighan.
It does appear Arthur's first wife was a Meighan and they had a son John A. Meighan, b. Mar 1837 in Ireland, died after 1910; m. ca 1866, to Mary Callahan, b. 14 May 1842-1844, New York; d. 14 May 1906, Lafayette Co., Wis.
daughter, Mary Ann Meighan, b. ca 1842, Ireland,
d. 12 Feb 1883, St. Bernard, Platte Co., Neb.
m. ca 1868, Hugh McCarville, b. 1842-1845; d. before 1920.
Children: Francis Edward McCarville, b. 9 Nov 1870, Wis. and Henry McCarville, b. 10 Dec 1873.

With his second wife Rachel Davis [b. 1825, Tenn. d, after 1880] - the children are:
Thomas Meighan, b. 1848, Wisconsin, m. after 1870 (maybe 21 Apr 1885) to Maggie).
Arthur Meighan, b. 1850, Wis.;
Patrick Meighan, b. 1852, Wis., m. Mary Rowen
Margaret Ellen Meighan, b. 1856, Wis.
d. 19 Sep 1928, Elgin, Kane Co., Ill.
buried Mt. Hope Cemetery, Elgin, Illinois
m. ca 1875 (when named heir of Arthur Meighan in land transaction) to James Kearns, b. Feb 1846

Frances Joanna Meighan, b. 1857, Wis.
Catherine (Katie) Meighan, b. Wis.

Well, That's probably enough to sort out for today. Hope it is of some help to you.

RE: Frances Gailey Thornton
I don't seem to find any of them in findagrave. Do you have their numbers?
