Robert Meacham (1835–1902) was an African-American leader in Florida during Reconstruction.[1][2] He was born a slave in Quincy, Florida; as one of his master's sons, he was educated by him. He purchased his freedom and that of his mother with money he had saved out of gratuities given him by his master.[3] He helped to establish the African Methodist Episcopal Church in Florida and acted as a minister.[1] In he helped write Florida's new Constitution of 1868.[1] In 1868 he was appointed clerk of the Circuit Court for Jefferson County, Florida. The following year he was named "superintendent of common schools." After a two-year term he became postmaster of Monticello, Florida, county seat of Jefferson County. In 1871 he was reappointed to the school position, renewed again when the two-year term ran out. He went on to win a seat in the Florida state legislature[2] as a state senator[4] in 1876.[3] In 1880 he was made postmaster of Punta Gorda, Florida. He retired to Tampa in 1896, in failing health.[3]
