Dr Carl George Merkel
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 9, 1909
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA
Death: Jun., 1984
Saranac Lake
Franklin County
New York, USA

Dr. Merkel practiced for many years as a surgeon in Saranac Lake, NY. He met his wife, Ruth Cann Merkel, at a lacrosse game in Maryland in which he was a player. The newspaper "Syracuse Herald Journal" in its issue of Thurs. June 29, 1950, p. 74, reported that Dr. Merkel was announced as one of four new members of the Board of Directors of the Saranac Lake Chamber of Commerce at their annual meeting of that group, which took place in the Harrietstown town hall. My memory is that Dr. Merkel had a stroke, and lived for around 2 more weeks before finally passing. [Check back, as I plan to add more details as they become available.] The full name of this cemetery is St. John's in the Wilderness Episcopal Cemetery.
