David MERRIAM came from Walpole, N. H., in 1787, settling on road 3. David was the son of Isaacs and Eleanor (Monroe) Merriam. He was twice married with his first wife being Phoebe FOSTER, who died April 7, 1794, aged 30. [Although another source says his first wife was Sarah OAK.] Both sources agree that his second wife was Betsey CONANT, a sister of John CONANT, died in June, 1842, aged 67.

Mr. MERRIAM was a hatter, but early in the history of the town gave up the trade entirely, and gave his whole attention to farming. Deacon Merriam was an active and useful member of the Baptist Church, of which he was a deacon and until his death. He was a selectman several years, and held various other town offices. Two of his sons. Isaac and Jonathan, became Baptist ministers.
