I am interested in any information on John Merriman who married Polly Berwick on 17 Jun 1794 in Opelousas, St. Landry, LA. Mary Ann "Polly" Berwick was the daughter of Thomas Berwick, the surveyor appointed by Bernardo de Gálvez to survey areas in New Iberia. John was born in Pickworth, Rutland county, England ABT 1760. I would really like to know how and when he arrived in Louisiana and why. John also petitioned for land in 1794 and was counted in a 1830 census.
Thanks for any information.
