Individual Note

According to Una's autobiography, the name Una came from a novel, although she didn't say which one. "Grandpa Meader never called me Una as he didnt [sic] like the name. He called me "Edie" He liked me better than Libby as I used to wash his White Hair and he would reward me with raisins." (Punctuation and capitalization as typed.)

Also from her autobiography: "My fathers people were of Scotch, Irish, and German descent and came from Pennsylvania. My mothers people were of Ireis Scotch, German decent [sic] came from Missouri after leaving Tennessee. My Great Grandmother died on the boat coming from Ireland to the U.S. This was during the potato famine in Ireland. She was buried at sea. My great grandmother was a German doctor by the name of Elizabeth Eslick. Her married name was Pierce. My Grandfather Meaders name was Valentine Meader because he was born on Valentines day. He had two brothers, Alex, and Austin,. They both died young of T. B. His mothers name was Sarah McConaughy and she had red hair and a temper to match." [All spelling and punctuation as written/typed.]

I must resolve some questions since she says Elizabeth Eslick Pierce is her great grandmother, yet the family group sheet says that Alexander and Elizabeth Eslick Pierce were her mother's parents which would make them Una's grandparents not great grandparents.

Una further says that her parents moved to South Dakota in 1894 because "my fathers two brothers, a niece and my sister, May, Passed away of quick consumption and they decided to move to a better climate."

Per Una in the same autobiography, she and her husband and family (Irvin was already married) moved to Sturgis (I presume this is still in South Dakota) about 1932.
