Here is my pedigree going back to Edward Merritt:

HARVEY Ned Merritt - Born: 1918 (Bedford, WY) / Wife: Rhea Hokanson
children: Children Names Withheld

I have withheld names for my relatives who are still alive in respect to them.  

Mike: It looks like a DNA test might prove useful to get some DNA info going for Edward after reading some of your other posts on the internet.  I will see if I can get one done in the next couple months. Any info that anyone has on Edward and who his parents/wife might be would be appreciated.

Saw your plea on GenForum for Merritts out of Cecil/Kent Counties, MD.  Here you are:

MERRITT, Samuell 1687 d.1723 m. Phoebe Millward
MERRITT, Lovering b.1716/17 Kent Co., MD d.1777 m. ca. 1741 Martha Davis
MERRITT, Samuel b.1737 Kent Co., MD d.1777 m. ca. 1757 Sarah Miller
MERRITT, Samuel b. ca 1758 Kent Co., MD d.1847 m. 1799 Anna Maria Thomas
MERRITT, Arthur Miller b.1802 Kent Co., MD d.1848 m.1826 Julianna Stewart
MERRITT, James Alfred b.1843 Kent Co., MD d.1901 m2. 1869 Emma Henrietta Wickes
MERRITT, James Alfred b.1885 Baltimore Co., MD d.1929 m3. 1921 Leah Rose Bassett
MERRITT, Ralph Wickes b.1925 El Paso Co., CO d.2011 m.1945 Ethel Elaine Bush
MERRITT, Mark A. (myself)

Family lore and some genealogies suggest a link with the Cecil County Merritts (Thomas Merritt b. ca. 1628 England, who m. Elizabeth and had a son named William - these Merritts were of St. Stephens Parish), but while I have no doubt the families knew of each other, I have no primary evidence of such a link.

Here’s my pedigree, with the latest three generations including mine omitted due to privacy concerns/born after 1910.  Most of this information came from two family burial plots located in Cypress Hills Cemetary, Queens/Brooklyn, NY.  There is also much ancillary info (brothers, sisters, other descendants) available from these plots.  I believe we are descended from the Thomas Merritt/Rye NY line, and here‘s why: Two brothers, Joseph and George Merritt (along with other siblings) are listed in “The Revised Merritt Record”, page 85, and no further info was known about them thereafter, see page 104.  I believe that Joseph from my pedigree is the same as the one listed in “The Record”:  our ancestor Joseph  was interred in our family plot on 2/18/1894, aged 58 yrs, 11 mos., 6 days, which puts his d/o/b around March 6-10, 1836, I believe the George Merritt listed on pg 85 in the “Record“, his brother, is also buried in our family plot (a George Merritt was interred 12/24/1907, aged 73 yrs, which made him b circa 1833-1834).  These dates seem to match the assumed dates in “The Record“, but I’m awaiting the DNA results…12 marker expected 4/9/10, 25 and 37 marker expected 4/23/10.
