Meriwether was the Association's first president, and the first editor of "Meriwether connections." A repository has been established at the Virginia Historical Society for preservation of donated heirlooms and historical documents of Meriwether Society members. Membership information, summaries of past issues, and other information is found on their Web site.

Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Meriwether (and variant spellings) families who came mainly from England and Wales. Some settled in Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia in the 1600-1700s. Focus is on the descendants of Nicholas Meriwether I (ca. 1631-1678), an early settler of James City and Surry Counties, in the Virginia Colony. During the 1800s, some Meriwethers moved to Alabama, Arkansas, the Dakota Territory, Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico Territory, New York, and Ohio. Later descendants also lived in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Wisconsin, and elsewhere. Some of their allied families had Yanton or Teton Sioux Indian bloodlines.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
