Jno & Elizabeth Merrifield, US 1860 Census, Dallas Co, TX, Precinct #2, Family #729-729. Among the Merrifield children was Catherine, single at home, age 20. Working for the family was one James Smith from TN. I have my great-great grandfather, James M Smith in the US 1870 Census, Bledsoe Co, TN married to one Catherine ?, and there the trail turns cold. If by chance this Catherine in Tx, married this James Smith from TN, they could be my great-great grandparents. If antone has info on the subsequent history of this Catherine Merrifield please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and you might just may my holidays.
