Hi, I'm looking for a George Smith Merritt who's father might be George Merritt,
Mother Unknown who was born according to records in Washington Co. NY
before 1830? George Smith Merritt b. 1851 p. NY d. 1894 p. MI in a train wreck
as an engineer is all that I have for him. He left his wife Emma Harriet Beebe in
Indiana. He lived in Elkhart Indiana when they were Married. I had a family line until
my Aunt Rose sent me records she had collected since 1947 and in one record
the above was stated. I kinda liked the other tree the best, because it had no
ropes or twisted branches. Thanks in advance for any help or links to my Brickwall
#1851-94 Great Grandfather George Smith Merritt. Steven P. Merritt, Cincinnati
Ohio
