John Rosenberry Merrell

Columbia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 2, 1908
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA

John Rosenberry Merrell/Merrill was the youngest of seven children born to Benjamin S. Merrell and Mary Hester Wagner. He was my husband's second great-grandfather.

He married Mary Ann Mears on November 4, 1863 in Columbia County, Pennsylvania. They were the parents of 11 children:
Grace Lenna Merrell (married Alfred Taylor)
Grant Merrell (married Caroline Diehl)
Lillian Ida Merrell (married Edward Reen)
Minerva "Minnie" Merrell
Ellis Camden Merrell
Eliza Merrell
Evelyn Merrell
John Forest Merrell
William Merrell
Irvin Merrell and
Jessie Merrell

John moved to California to be closer to his daughters after Mary Ann died in 1902. My husband descends from John and Mary Ann's son, Grant.
