John Allen Merchant, a grocery wholesaler, died in Coal County on about 22 Aug 1929. He left behind a widow, Elizabeth. I would like to know how he died, if possible, what his wife's maiden name was and what became of her, and when they married if possible.
John was born 31 Mar 1886, in Lee County, MS, to Henry and Mary (Baldwin) Merchant. The family settled in Red Oak, I.T. around 1890.
