Nancy, I have several Peter Mericle's (by whatever spelling) that I have no data on. Your guy could be one of them. I do have this that you may wish to check out:
from Paul Cornellemail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a Jacob Mericle born about 1820 in Schoharie Co., NY. His Father was Peter Mericle born 1789 (Don't know where born) who married Elizabeth Tracy 1794-1862. They came to Tioga County, NY about 1835 or 1840 and are buried in that county. I have about 10 other Mericles believed to be children and grandchildren of Peter and Elizabeth (Betsey). I have a William Mericle born in 1832. He was either born in Schoharie Co., NY or Tioga Co., NY. His father was Peter Mericle and mother Elizabeth (Betsey) Tracy. He was a brother of the Jacob that I wrote about here earlier.
I haven't been able to tie this guy into any of my lines. Other than that, I can't help you. Sorry. Jerry
