Thanks for the info.Mary Atwood is my Mary Loya, born 1870.It appears, that she had 3 husbands- 1. Peter Loya (maybe a cousin?) the possible father of Charlotte "Merritt", sister of Harry B. Merritt.My mother has always said that William Merritt was the second husband of Mary. 2. William Merritt married abt. 1886 and father of my grandfather (the SOB) Harry B. Merritt. 3. Henry Adams Atwood married June 26, 1909 and remembered by my mother in Sats. phone call.My mother has never mentioned any children by Henry.
So now, you have added three people and Mary's birthdate to my family tree.Did you get the info from a marriage certificate of Peter and Mary?If you have it, I would surelike a copy.
