"Note: Something is very bizarre about this record, found in the VT General Index of Vital Records, source Readsboro? This Merritt Benjamin is listed as a son of Hiram & Lydia, yet Hiram died in 1857. This is possibly a mis-listing of the earlier Merritt Benjamin, b & d in Monroe, MA in 1855/56, and buried in Whitingham - or it is a Merritt Benjamin named in remberance of the first one and belonging to another set of parents?"
