Merritt's of Holt County

Looking for information on Michael S. Merritt, His wife Mary O. Herbst Merritt and his son Frederick DeLoss Merritt. Michael moved from Iowa to Holt County in the late 1800's and died in Holt county 2 Feb 1908 from Pneumonia, that he came down with while trapping game along the creeks in the northwestern part of the County. Frederick Merritt had made friends among the Indians and lived with several different tribes as a young man. He was my grandfather and I understand that he was well liked by the Indians that knew him.
