Thank you so much for the obit. Was that on www.libraryweb.org
I found the picture of Wendelin on the Monroe CO NY GenWeb site. My cousin in Germany who is related to the Merk family had told me Wendelin Merk traveled back to Germany to visit and also toured through other neighboring countries. Wendelin kept a diary/journal of his travels which was published. In Rochester, NY, Wendelin was a bookseller. My cousin very much would like to make contact with any Merk descendants in the US. In Baden, every 2 years there is a Merk family reunion that my cousin attends.
I have looked on GenealogyBank for any Merk obits but have not been successful as yet. Please let me know the source of the obit for Lawrence Merk.
