MEEKS, (I am happy to say I receive many letters like this one.) Dale E Meeks writes Glad to see Bartow Co. on the Web. My father and many before him were from Bartow Co. My Dad Thad H. Meeks born in Bartow on Oct 1909 in Taylorsville, kinda in the suburbs of Taylorsville. I do not know a whole lot about my dads family due to the age of my father and that we were always on the move with my Dad in the army. My Grandmother was a Henderson, my grandfather and her both were born in 1877 and my great grandparents in 1844. I am the youngest of the grandchildren of my fathers mom and dad. The name Meeks has been hard for me to track down, as I believe there are no more in Bartow. I loved Bartow as a kid going to see what kin I have. It's sad to see now that it is growing into the same mess as Cobb. Co. were my family now resides. The days of the old farm house and dirt roads are almost gone giving way to the mass of people coming from Atlanta to live there. I have always lived in the big city but loved the countryside that was Bartow. The stories my Dad told me of plowing the field with his mule and grandmother bringing the food to the field for dinner the times of Christmas when all you got was maybe an orange and some nuts and for the guys a few shells for their guns. Reading by fire light and cornbread cooked on the old wood stove. These things I miss but that will always be Bartow to me. Sorry to be so wordy but it feels good to think of the stories my Dad told me for all my life. He died a little over 4 years ago and thank God for those stories for they are the only think I know of my family past and how though times my have been tough the family was always together having its good times.
