Hi! Someone in the NY area sent me this 1880 Elkhart Census. I'm wondering if the John and Mercy is a father or an uncle of George Smith Merritt. The Floyd County record states that George was his father we think. It was an old photocopy of the family census and you couldn't make out much, but it should have been the same as the one below. There is not a double George on that one? If anyone could help my brickwall thanks in advance. Steven P. Merritt, Cincinnati, Ohio
