Good afternoon. My name is Douglas Rohde and I am conducting research for a book to be published in the Library of Congress. The book will also be available free to everyone on Google Books. The individuals in whom I am interested are Jesse Bert Merchant (1878-Iowa / 1960-Colorado), his wife Maud Pearl (Atha) Merchant (1881-Missouri / 1963-Colorado), and Maud's parents George Harrison Atha (1855-Indiana / 1932-Missouri) and Mary (Chappell) Atha (1854-Missouri / 1940-Missouri).
Your help is greatly appreciated. If you or anyone you know knows of any of these four people please contact me on here or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time and have a great day!
