He served in the War of 1812 and was there when his eldest son David was born. He moved to Clearfield Co. in 1820. He died in 1871 ... and his wife Lydia died at the age of 90 within a few days. To John and Lydia Gearhart were born eleven children, one dying in infancy, the other ten living to a ripe age, whose names are as follows, - David, Sarah, Catharine, who is yet living at the advanced age of 95, John S., the father of J. E. Gearhart, Susanna, Andrew, Jane, Enoch, Hannah, and Jacob, who is yet living."3

John Gearhart Tonight I was in 1850 Clearfield Co, PA....... John and Lydia (Snivey) Gearhart were in Decatur Twp, with sons Andrew, Enoch, Jacob and daughter Hannah. Daughter Jane Anne, age 25, was married already, and living in Boggs Twp with husband Jonas H. Peters, age 29, and children Clarissa, 4, and William H, 1. (I had a hard time finding them; Jonas was in the index as "Jones")

Jonas and Jane lived next door to George W. Gearhart and wife Christina and two little children, and next to them was the family of John S. and Lydia Gearhart and their 4 children. (p. 335, 1850 census: Peters family #719; GW Gearhart, #720, John S #721)

I had been at a dead end with Jonas' family, but....... I found them! They were in Bradford Twp, Clearfied Co, family #691, John Peters (age 66,
b. PA), wife Ruth (55, b. PA) and children George, 28, and Elizabeth, 18. Living next door, family #690, was John Peters Jr, age 35, wife Sarah, 26, and 2 little children.4

     "William married Elizabeth Breckinridge, whose family had settled in Huntingdon county about three miles southeast of McConnelstown, on the road leading from Huntingdon to Bedford, and where the father, eldest sister and younger brother had been murdered by the Indians. He settled on that part of his father's tract now known as the David G. Meek farm, and died in 1806, leaving his wife and four sons and a daughter born three months after the father's death.

John and Thomas had left the house, when the Indians came upon them, killed the father near the spring-house and the oldest daughter in the spring-house.

She took the path towards Huntingdon, but lost it, and wandered about he woods with her children the entire day and night. Coming to a ryef+ield the next morning, she wrapped the infant in a part of her garments, laid it down, and proceeded to rub grains of rye for her starving child. Search was made for her, and late in the afternoon of the next day she was found on the edge of the rye-field with the one child, but anguish had so unsettled her mind she could not tell where the baby was laid. Late the next day she recovered sufficiently to tell where she had put the child, and it was found, not having suffered apparently, except its entire face was fly-blown.

     Lady Alice de Lacy Countess of Lincoln and Salisbury The Earl and Countess (Henry and Margaret) of Lincoln were survived by a single child, a daughter Alice, who married Thomas Earl of Lancaster (see SAINT DAVIDS, V, section Lineage (of Strange)). Even before Alice's death, which took place in 1348, EDWARD III had in 1337 granted a new creation of the Earldom of Salisbury to a completely unrelated person, acting on the assumption that the dignity had previously reverted to the Crown. This assumption seems to have been based partly on the fact that Alice's husband Lancaster had been attainted and thus suffered a judicial corruption of blood, partly on the fact that Alice had been compelled to surrender her inherited estates to the Crown on the occasion of the aforesaid attainder.6

Rev. John Breckenridge Meek MEEK, JOHN B., died on the 28th of November, 1868, at his residence in Washington City. He was born in Centre County, June 5, 1797, and was the son of William Meek. His mother's name was Elizabeth Breckenridge, of whom the following interesting incident is authentic: In July, 1779, the Breckenridge family, consisting of father, mother, two sons, - John and Thomas, aged eighteen and sixteen years respectively, - a daughter of fourteen, another aged three years, and Elizabeth, then an infant at the breast, re-sided about three miles southeast of McConnellstown, in Huntingdon County, on the road from Huntingdon to Bedford, on the farm in 1856 occupied by Ludwig Hoover. John and Thomas had left the house, when the Indians came upon them, killed the father near the spring-house and the oldest daughter in the spring-house. The mother snatched the infant Elizabeth out of the cradle, and taking the other child up made her escape. She took the path towards Huntingdon, but lost it, and wandered about the woods with her children the entire day and night. Coming to a rye-field the next morning, she wrapped the infant in a part of her garments, laid it down, and proceeded to rub grains of rye for her starving child. Search was made for her, and late in the afternoon of the next day she was found on the edge of the rye-field with the one child, but anguish had so unsettled her mind she could not tell where the baby was laid. Late the next day she recovered sufficiently to tell where she had put the child, and it was found, not having suffered apparently, except its entire face was fly-blown. The infant recovered, and became the wife of Wm. Meek. John Breckenridge became a distinguished Presbyterian preacher, and officiated for many years in the first Presbyterian Church built in Washington City.
William Meek died early, leaving John B. Meek and four other children dependent upon the mother. She was a woman noted for great energy of character, untiring industry, and eminent piety. Under her care they received, by precept and example, the most valuable lessons to form their character and to guide them through life.
At the age of nineteen years John B. Meek professed religion, and for over forty years he was actively engaged as a local preacher in the Methodist Church. He was a member of the Legislature from Centre County in 1848-50, acted as chaplain himself, and in-troduced the rule for having the House of Representa-tives opened with prayer. He was the father of Harriet J. Meek, whose sweet poetical contributions to leading magazines made her name widely known, and whose death in 1856, at the early age of twenty-three, was deeply regretted.
In 1856 his health became seriously impaired, and be was advised to seek a warmer climate, and on the incoming of his personal friend, James Buchanan, to the Presidency he received an appointment at Washington City. This he filled until the Rebellion broke out, when he was appointed chaplain of Howard Hospital, which he filled with acceptability. At the close of the war he again found employment in public office.

(from John Blair Linn, "History of Centre and Clinton Counties, Pennsylvania", 1883, p. 213.)2 He was a mentioned with Capt. George Meek at Citation; Commemorative Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania, Including the Counties of Centre, Clinton, Union and Snyder; Chicago: J.H.Beers & Co., 1898, p. 124.

     "McCARTNEY - On the 19th of July, 1880, at her home in Bolivar, Westmoreland Co., after a lingering illness, Mrs. Harriet McCartney, wife of James E. McCartney, formerly Miss Harriet Meek, of Ferguson township, Centre county.
     Mrs. McCartney was about 74 years of age, and will be remembered by many of the older readers of the Watchman as a woman of large intellect, a true Christian, and a strict member of the M. E. Church. She was the last of her family - her brothers, John B., George W., Reuben H. and Wm. J. Meek, all older than herself, having passed away at about the same age that death has claimed her. She leaves a husband, an adopted son and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her loss. May the Cristian and motherly advice she has given to thousands be heeded, and may her mantle of Christian virtues fall upon the shoulders of some one worthy to wear them. - Bellefonte Watchman."1
