Charles E. Borden was a descendant of Richard Mead of Mursley, Buckinghamshire, England, through his second son, Rev. Matthew Mead (1629-1699). Rev. Mead's great grandson, Col. William Mead (1737-1805) was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, the son of John and Mary Arbrell Mead. He migrated to Virginia with his father, ca. 1746. He served with the militia and the contental army during the Revoltionary War. He married twice and was the father of thirteen children, 1752-1782. Most of the family moved to Georgia in 1785. Children and grandchildren listed lived in Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Alabama, and elsewhere.
