Now let's step back to his parents.

1880 Bridgeport, Saginaw, MI
Amelia Mead, b. MI, 38
Carrie, b. MI, 19
Cora, b. MI, 17
Stewart, b. MI, 3 [I don't think Stewart's father was John Mead since he was born after John had died]

1900 Arbela, Tuscola, MI
Amelia Mead, b. MI, Jan 1839, widow, farmer
Alanson Bush, uncle, b. NY May 1828, widower, boarders

Steuart E. Mead, son, b. NY, April 1876, single, farm laborer
Kena Peters, b. Germany May 1873, servant, single

George & Carry Eaton were neighbors.

Stewart Wead
Born: abt. 1878, MI
Mother: Amelia
Res: Arbela, Saginaw, MI
Married: Arbela, Saginaw, MI, Feb 2, 1904
Dora Kitelinger

1910 Seaside, Clatsop, OR

1920 St. Helens, Columbia, OR
Stewart E. Mead, b. MI, 43, house carpenter
Dora L., b. MI, 34, laundress private family

I think both Stewart and Dora died in the 1930's. One person's family tree said that Dora died in 1932 in Portland, Clackamas, OR.

Now to tackle Amelia. I don't think she was born in Pennsylvania. All of the Census records say she was born in Michigan.

Carry*, b. MI, 38
Gladys Eaton, adopted dau, b. MI, 17

*I didn't find Amelia's marriage to a Mr. Emmonds.
