Hello again bob:
I knew susannah was not the mother ,However; i have information from Dan Sullivan from a book written by King Merritt."the historical perspective of Charles Merritt". It states that my guy Charles arrived in Va. in 1666 at the age of 14. so he was born the year that the Maj. arrived in Va. The book goes on to say that Charles worked as an overseer on Benjamin Harrison's plantation on black water. So we had 3 marriotts/merritts here at the same time. there is also some spectulation that Matthais was born about 1642 in England and came to Va. at an early age.He is on the 1668 tax roll as a land owner so he had to be at least (i can't remember if it was 16 or 18) If this is true he could have been the Maj. child. If the Maj had only 2 kids then this all is for naught.
anyway thanks again for the info
J Merritt
