RE: Diehl/Spidel
I didn't notice the duplicate memorial. I see you already added the photo which is fine with me. I'm glad I could help.

Thank you
Dear Rick, Thank you to you and your helper for attempting to locate the graves of my great-grandparents in Mt. Calvary. I know that looking at every plot must have been time consuming and frustrating. I sincerely appreciate your efforts with all of my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

RE: Mary E Merz
I agree. I did not realize that the card preceded the listing they have that can be accessed via their website. Just thought they were both transcribed. Wish we could have figured out all the Dayton City Directory listings, would really like to see what happened to John and Mary's daughter Mary. It would probably take someone in Dayton searching records. Do you live there? Doesn't mean you would have time to do it, of course.

RE: Mary E Merz
Yes, the plot card does, but if you go on line and print all the Merz there, it is Mary A, who died in 1884. Obviously, one of the transcriptions is wrong. It would probably be worth while to contact them to see which is correct, if they still have the original, that is. There is only A once and E twice, so lacking any further info, E seems to be the letter of choice.

RE: Mary E Merz
According to Calvary Cemetery records, John's wife Mary is Mary A. According to the Probate Court record, she is Mary E. George's wife Mary is Mary C per a Dayton City directory or census, don't remember at the moment. She is Mary with no middle initial in Calvary records. My 1st question is John's wife Mary A or Mary E. His wife died in 1884, so Calvary would not know anything about any other Mary Merz in 1884. I do not mean to be argumentative, just trying to figure it out. And maybe there is no other piece of info to support E or A??? Should you ever come across something to help in this, I would be greatly appreciate if you would share it, and I would do the same. I have contacted one of Peter's descendants to see if he can shed any light on this. If I get any info, I will let you know. Again, thanks.

Mary E Merz
Rick, Wife of John Merz, Mary is listed here as Mary E Merz, following the lot layout that is on her memorial. However, Calvary Cemetery lists her as Mary A. Merz. John is in the 1868 Dayton City Directory living on Monroe bet Brown & Pulaski. Staying in the Dayton City Directories, John is listed the last time in 1875, making a good case that he died in 1875 or 1876. (In 1875, there is a Mary, could be their daughter, who is a clerk.)Going on with John's wife, Mary, in 1876, there is a Mary A., who is a domestic servant at 7 Marshall. She would have been only 54. There are two Marys which is confusing. I initially thought one was John and Mary's daughter. Don't have any idea. Back to senior Mary, there is a Mary A in 1880, who is domestic servant. No Marys after 1880 in the directories. Senior Mary died in 1884. Any thought would be appreciated. Sharon Folk
