This is a document that was shared with me by Katie Wilson Meade’s granddaughter, Elizabeth, during my visit to Charlottesville in January.
The story behind this document is that Elizabeth’s father, Everard Wilson Meade, wanted to join the Navy during World War II, and the lack of an official birth certificate was an issue.
This document was notarized in Florida, probably in Marianna, as that is where Frank and May Wilson were living in 1943. There is a lot of great family background information in this one, concise document.
