Augusta Co., VA court records first mention John Meek along with Thomas Meek in an attachment to a petetion for a road by the in habitants of Little River in Calf Pasture dated 6 Aug 1750. Researchers have been unable to find any records of land owned by John Meek. On 18 Feb 1761 William Guy posted a bond as administrator of the estate of John Meeks (Chalkley Vol III, p.61). A subsequent enter dated 15 April 1761 lists the personal property including a box of shoemakers tools.
Some of John's children are mentioned in court records concerning the gaudianship of the minor children. See Lyman Chalkley's Cronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia.
