Re: Mary R Payson M Bef 1829 NH
I don't have much info at all. but here it is.
Mary Vernon De'Rochmont b 8/1/1864 Kingston, Rockingham, NH m May 5 1887 Merrill Bagley Merrick d 11/1949. (This is from her daughter-in-law, Bernice West Merrick Mace, my great-grandmother)
Mary's Parents were Daniel De'Rochmont b abt 1829 in Kingston, and Elizabeth Gale d 11/2/1922 Kingston. (This also from Bernice.)
Daniel's parents Charles De'Rochmont b abt 1808 Rockingham Co, NH and Mary R Payson. (This from census info.)
Charles's Parents Maximillian De'Rochmont and Sarah Ham Moses. (Census info)
I do know that Max was born in France, and m Sarah in 1804 in Portsmouth, NH. Mary Vernon told my great-grandmother that Maximillian was murdered in the South in 1823, while preaching abolition. Mary Vernon had several siblings, and I can remember meeting her brother as a child, Their are still De'Rochmonts in the Kingston area. and I hope to make a trip in the spring to do some research.
Good Luck Hunting, Sidney
