Francis Meader born March 11, 1744, was the first of the name who settled in Industry. Esq. Wm Allen says : "Mr. Meader was from Nantucket, a carpenter, a Revolutionary soldier, and a pensioner when he died." Mr. Meader was undoubtedly of Nantucket origin but probably settled in Edgartown, Mass., prior to his marriage. He was known to be living there in January, 1781, and also at the time of taking the first U. S. census in 1790. He settled on lot No. 24, on the Plymouth Patent, about 1807, and died with his son-in-law, James Eveleth, in 1831. His wife, Mary Holley, was born May 24, 1751, and died July 25, 1832.
