I am helping a friend named Chuck Mericle with his research into his ancestor Lewis Mericle/Merical/Merrick/Marricle/Miricle, etc. Chuck has contacted countless agencies, websites and many genealogy experts to ascertain when and where Lewis married Hannah Sickler? There are no records to be found. It is believed that Lewis may have married Hannah in Exeter Township, Luzerne County, PA (1820-1830?). The reason we say that is that Lewis appears on the 1830 & 1840 Census records for Exeter, PA. It is believed that Lewis was born 4 May 1802 in PA and Hannah was born 1804-1807 in NY or PA. Lewis is buried in Cayuta Cemetery, Cayuta, Schuyler County, NY the stone shows the year 1872-buried with son Lafayette. If we can get a copy of the marriage license we may get another question answered. Who were Lewis' parents? Hannah's parents were William Sickler and Ruth Sheppard. If anyone can help Chuck, please email him at email@example.com or US Mail-Chuck Mericle, PO Box 1371, Mount Vernon, TX 75457-1371. Thanks, Jim
