There is no doubt that you are an Eppard!They are the only people in the world who would submit an apology for not having ended a sentence! The will of John Merica reads:Lucy S.(deceased prior to his death); Carry Lee,Maud A.; Edna M.; George T.; and Irma C.
Robert E. Merica married Susan Weaver, sister of Mary Jane Weaver; and daughter of John Thomas Weaver and Rebecca Sours.
Claude B. Hensley, who witnessed the will of John Merica; was a 1st cousin of Samuel Lawrence Hensley, and therefore some sort of uncle to Samuel's daughter, Virginia Patterson Hensley.She was never called "Virginia", but was called "Patsy". In 1953 she married Gerald Cline.The marriage ended in divorce, but "Patsy Cline" went on to make some history in the music profession.
