The John Meis Family Home Page

Updated September 5, 2000

I have information on the Meis family tree. I am a decendant of J.C. George Meis who was born in Siddinghausen, Germany in 1766. He had five sons (one of which died at an early age) and two daughters. One son, Anton, was born in 1806. He is my great-great-great grandfather. He came to the U.S. in 1850 and settled in a German community in Iowa called new Vienna. I think that he brought his four living sons with him in 1850. He also traveled with Mararet Pape who was the remarried widow of his oldest brother Heinrich. Heinrich and Margaret had four boys and they also came on the trip to the U.S. I have quite a bit of information and more is on the way. If you have any information on the Meis surname please contact me. Last updated 6/29/97.
