Birth: 1858
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 9, 1899, Philippines

A native of Brooklyn, NY, Corporal Merwin died in Manila, succumbing to cirrhosis of the liver. He was 40 years old and a member of Company M, First Regiment, California Volunteer Infantry. On February 4, 1900, his remains were re-interred at this cemetery, along with three other soldiers of the California Volunteer Infantry. The pallbearers, escort, and firing squad were furnished from the batteries of the Sixth Artillery garrisoning the Presidio, and the post chaplain read the services. The graves were all laid out near the east wall of the cemetery. They were interred close together, and the three volleys and the one "taps" did for them all.
