K Hannigan Yes, he is my uncle...sorry, not the same Fred Merritt. This one is from Hodgdon, Maine [deceased]. Merritts have to all be connected in some way, however. This overview takes us to my great grandparents: Deacon Thomas Marrett was born c 1589 in England and married Susanna Cranniwell. Thomas died 6/30/1664; Susanna died 2/23/1664. Thomas Merritt was born 8/2/1633 and married Jane ____?.. Thomas died 11/10/1725; Jane died 12/3/1656 Thomas [Sgt] Merritt was born 1/31/1670 and married [before 1694] Martha Marshall. Thomas died 1/30/1719. Thomas Merritt III was born in 1694 and married Mary Underhill who was born in 1696. Thomas died in 1749; Mary died in 1735. Robert Merritt was born 3/10/1731 and married in 1762 Elizabeth Robinson [born c. 1731]. Robert died in 10/1802;[no info on Elizabeth’s death]. Robert Merritt, Jr was born 9/14/1762 in Hempstead, LI,NY and married EFfie Palmer in 1792. Robert died 2/23/1601-02 in Hampstead, NB. John Merritt married Abigail Gerow [born 1784] on 4/28/1803. John died in 1830; Abigail died 10/13/1855. Caleb Merritt was born 10/11/1813 and married Harriet Mills, who was born 11/8/1820, on 4/19/1842. Caleb died 10/16/1880; Harriet’s date of death unknown]. Edward Merritt, born 4/23/1852 married Barbara Gerow, born 12/18/1855, on 8/20/1878. Edward died 9/16/1925; Barbara died 8/14/1831.

K Hannigan No location given...so difficult to know if any possible connection with ?other Whites etc. So many of these photo posts do this...too bad the site didn't offer/suggest that as part of description. I am guessing these Whites are in the South?

K Hannigan that is, in previous comment!
K Hannigan Bernie [Bernice] is still alive at age 89, but now experiencing increased symptoms of Alzheimer's/dementia. For historical information such as family info, she is still reasonably sharp, however. Yesterday, 7/21/06, I verified again re the nickname Hamp as noted above.
