I too am searching for the same information.I have him born abt 1854 and died before 1930.I do not have him in the 1900 census anywhere but I believe he would be in Oklahoma where his son Clarence was born in abt 1899 and where he was in the 1910 census.
I have his parents as Alfred Meserole and Ann Eliza Wright.They are burried in Flushing Cemetery in Queens New York.I have Alfred parents from his death certificate as Jacob and Pbebe Meserole.I do not have any information on them nor do I know who their parents are.I have several Jacob Meseroles but none that fit the timeframe.
I have a little information on John's children.
I got interested in John because of Alfred who was born abt 1823.This was the same timeframe as my gggrandfather Richard AKA Henry.I thought tracing Alfred's parents would help me with Henry's.I have not ruled it out yet but have been unable to make any links.
Hopefully your search is going well.Let me know if you need any more information.Also if you have anything that would help me it would be greatly appreciated.
