The Merkley line...goes back to the Mohawk Valley of New York..Cobbleskill, Schoharie..and they were soldiers for the King during the Rev...Sarah Jane was born in Ireland and came to Canada as a child with her mother. They farmed in Matilda Twp on a piece of land which remained in the family until the the 1960s.
