I myself haven't had as much luck tracking the Meeker's at this point I only have sketchy info & I know both the MEEKER/WOODS & POSTEL/GILSON families were in the IOWA area. I have had better luck with the Postel family out of IOWA. My son's Father, Grandpa & possiblr Gr-Grandpa were all born in IOWA & a couple of generations of POSTEL's were born and raised there. SO I am not sure at this point of any family from NJ. But know doubt they were from somewhere on the eastern seaboard... Most families came in from there. I hope to hear from you soon. Good luck in your family research & maybe we will connect.
