I should have printed out what I had written before before I started this, so I apologize if I repeat myself.
Munson Merriam was b. June 17, 1806.He was the only child of Isaac and Mary L. Benham.Isaac was born in Wallingford, CT, Feb. 9, 1770.Married Feb. 11, 1802.
I also see a Munson Merriam b. april 11, 1767.This is a brother to Isaac Merriam above.
Their father was Munson Merriam b. at Wallingford, CT, Aug. 19, 1730.He married Rebekah Bartholomew Dec. 26, 1764.Along with Isaac and Munson they had Rebecca b. Oct. 6, 1765, Rufus, b. Jan. 8, 1772 and Eunice, b. March 19, 1776.
This Munson Merriam's parents were Ichabod who was b. at Lynn, MA,Nov. 20, 1700.Married Abigail, Oct. 19, 1725.She was the daughter of Joseph Munson (!!!) born April 3, 1704.
Besides Munson, they had one other child:Ichabod b. Jan. 22, 1728.
Ichabod's parents were William b. at Lynn, MA, March 8, 1668.If I read this correctly, the mother of this particular child is Athilred, daughter of Thaddeus and Hannah Berry, of Boston.Married her Dec. 20, 1695.altogether he was married 4 times!Hmmmm.
William's parents were William b. in England about 1624 and his wife was Elizabeth Breed.
William's father was William, his father was Joseph, his father was William.There's LOTs of info on this family and just too much to type up to you.
The book I mentioned is available through Higginson Book Company in MA - web site is www.higginsonbooks.com - The price of the book is $69.50 and it has 515 p.I picked my copy up at a used book store a few years ago for $40.It's paperback.
The title is:Merriam Genealogy in England and America- compiled by Charles Henry Pope 1906.
My husband's great-grandparents were White's from Danbury, CT.Any connection?
Anything else I might be able to help with, give a yell!
