Re: Ulster Co, NY MERRITTs
Thanks, Michael.Not much enlightenment yet, I fear. But I do have a new clue.FHC has put NY deeds online and I found that Asa MERRITT sold a house in Marlboro, Ulster Co, NY in 1854 that he owned jointly with David T. Merritt.Asa was living in PA at the time, but David T. was living in the house.They sold it to James C. Merritt, the man I suspect is another brother.So I'm thinking that David T. is their father.(He could be a brother, but James C. named a son David T. in 1858, so seems more likely that this David is their father).David T. is in Marlboro in the census for several decades before that, but I can't find him in 1850. At least it's a new trail to explore.
