Ray, I have not made a concrete connection yet. Maybe you can help me do it.My 3rd grt-grandfather, John G. Miller married a Elizabeth Goodell.Her mother was a Merrick of Mass., this according to a family history written about the Miller family.I believe her parents were: Thomas Goodell/Goodale and Miriam Merrick, daughter of Ebenezer Merrick.Miriam was born in Cavenza, Madison Co. in 1742.Ebenezer died there. Were they the parents or grd-parents of Elizabeth.Now there were more Merricks in Madison Co. according to some of the records I have seen. The arthur of the Miller book is gone now.And his close relatives will not give me copies of his notes or even let me look at them.It was published in 1952. Do you think that I may have something?I hope so.This book and a question to my father about his grandfather got me started searching about 30 years ago.
