County of Christian, Kentucky. Historical and Biographical. Edited by
William Henry Perrin. F. A. Battey Publishing Co., 1884, p. 384.

CHARLES M. MEACHAM is the editor of the South Kentuckian, of which
enterprising sheet he assumed the editorial management in the fall of 1879,
becoming at the same time a part proprietor. He had for some time previous
filed the position of local editor on the same paper. He was born in
Belleview, this county, June 14, 1858, and received his early education in
the country schools and those of Hopkinsville. He is a son of the Rev. A.
W. Meacham, of whom a sketch will be found elsewhere in this work. In
early life he gave his attention to the study of law, reading under the
instructorship of Judge G. A. Champlin, and was admitted to the
Hopkinsville bar March 15, 1879. Mr. Meacham is a young man of undoubted
talents, and of high social and intellectual worth. The South Kentuckian,
under his able supervision, is now issued semi-weekly, and teems with
matter of a practical and high literary order, and with editorials
comprehensive in grasp and vigorous in tone, disclosing his special
aptitude for the work, which insures the paper a long lease of usefulness
and prosperity. In 1881 he was appointed a member of the Christian County
Democratic Executive Committee, and was elected secretary of the same,
which position he still retains. In February, 1884, the appointment was
acceptably tendered him as a Commissioner of the Western Kentucky Lunatic
Asylum for a term of six years. Mr. Meacham was united in marriage, June
14, 1883, to Miss Lizzie E. Tandy, the youngest daughter of Major Charles
M. Tandy, deceased, a former resident of Hopkinsville.
