Ulster Co, NY MERRITTs
With the help of a Civil War Pension file, I have pieced together the following MERRITT siblings:Nancy Jane MERRRITT,b. abt. 1813, marr. John TAYLOR &2 James BURNSIDE; Asa MERRITT, b. abt. 1822, marr. Harriet DECKER; Phebe MERRITT, b. abt. 1820, marr. Richard Kinard SCOTT. There was also a James MERRITT who may have been another brother.
My husband descends from Nancy's 2nd marriage. I have never been able to find who were her parents, so am hoping that someone here relates to Asa or Phebe and has the parents' names. All three were born in or near Marlboro, Ulster Co., NY.Nancy moved away to Albany and then Schodack, NY.Asa lived mostly in Sullivan Co, NY and Phebe lived first in Newburgh,NY, then Wayne Co, PA. (The pension file was for one of Nancy's sons who married his cousin, a daughter of Phebe).
