Poor guy must have really had to compensate for his wimpy surname with some ugly decisions from the bench!

I don't think so, he's dead.
|Mar-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: he was very Meek and Humble|
|Apr-12-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: He was a Southerner who died in November of 1865? Did he kill himself like Edmund Ruffin?|
|Nov-07-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Two books that Meek wrote can be read on Google books:|
Here is an excellent summary of his life:
|Sep-28-15|| ||wwall: I don't think he died on Nov 30, 1865. The Nov 7, 1865 issue of The New York Times said he "died recently in Columbus, Mississippi." They got their news from a New Orleans newspaper dated Nov 4, 1865. My guess is that he died on October 30, 1865.|
|Sep-28-15|| ||Stonehenge: November 1, methinks:
|Sep-29-15|| ||wwall: Good job Stonehenge. I'll have to use findagrave more often.|
