Joseph Mercer Family
Posted by: Todd Mercer Date: March 12, 2002 at 20:12:29
  of 583

My ggrandparents were Joseph and Elizabeth Ann (Sweet) Mercer. Census records say he was born somewhere in England and she in Canada. Still lack definate dates of death on each of them. Does anyone know who their parents were? Their siblings? Not sure if they met in the United States or if he came to Canada first (more likely). Their oldest child Robert (my ggrandfather) was born in Ontario 1876, and the younger ones were born in Sanilac County, beginning with George at the latest, 1885. Would really appreciate any further information about the Mercer or Sweet lines.

Also in my records is a death record of a George Mercer (1843-1867), who was born in England and died in Forester Twp, Sanilac County, Michigan. Despite his youth his certificate notes that he was a widower. I am not sure where he fits in, but I speculate that he could have been Joseph's brother.

Posting helps the most people, but you can also email me directly at roygbiv@torchlake.com

Found these Mercers listed as property owners in Sanilac County. My Joseph Mercer lived in Austin Twp; I believe the Elizabeth Mercer listed below is not Elizabeth Ann Sweet Mercer. Not sure who most of them are or their relationships to each other.
