I suspect there is a connection, but I'm afraid I don't know it at this time.
Ada Irene Merritt-Wood was the daughter of Ervin Porter Merritt and Sarah Jane Lawton.
Ervin Merritt was the son of John Merritt, who was born around 1846 in New York (according to census records). I assume that about two more generations worth of knowledge would give us an answer, but it will probably take me a while to find that information, as I am on a limited budget and live in Indiana.
I'll let you know if I find anything.
