Helleo Genelle, My name is Gloria Baran and I'm a descendant of Captain Benjamin Merrill(Merrell) during the Revolutionary War the family changed spelling to somewhat hide from the British. I assume you are a descendant of Daniel Merrell(Merrill) who was a son of William Merrill (brother to my Benjamin Merrill). William Merrill b.1729/1730 Hopewell,Mercer,NJ d.1728/1783 Rowan,NC. Do you have this information. Please contact me and let me know and I can give you some leads to continue your research work. Sincerely, Gloriagjsb@sbcglobal.net.
