Merget Family Genealogy Forum
I am researching the family of Matthaus MERGET, b 1836, and his wife Eva REBEL, b 1835, who emigrated from Hesse Darmstadt, Germany to New York about 1870. Both were born in the town of Ober Roden in Hesse Darmstadt. They had 7 children but one died young: Margret, Eva, Susanna, Susanna, Elisabetha, Matthaus, and Catherine Merget. They lived in New York City and on Staten island. Eva died relatively young in 1873 and the children were said to have been sent temporarily to an orphanage. He married secondly Mary Emma Tucker and they had four more children: William, Mary E, Gertrude and Ethel Merget. If you have any information about or connection to this family, please contact me. Thank you.
