Thank you SO much for this information on the Merritt's. I, too, am a Merritt...James Nelson Merrtt is also my Great Great Grandfather. I found info that he was married to Josephine Russell on 18 Dec 1854. Their son, John Thomas, was my Great Grandfather and was married to Henrietta Jane Robinson in 1883. John Thomas was born, raised, and died in Montgomery County. Their son, John Bunyon Merritt was my Grandfather, who died 16 Jan 1945 from pneumonia in a VA Hospital in Fayetteville, NC. His address at the time of his death was Rt. #2, Box 31, Mt. Gilead. He was married to Margie Gibson at the time of his death, but was divorced from my grandmother, Annie Belle Keith dad, Leon Merritt, was their son. I actualy went to Montgomery County this past June to try to locate the Merritt Cemetery, but had no luck as I don't know the exact location of the Merritt homestead. If you could PLEASE help me out with a location, I would be forever grateful. Please check my Ancestry site for detailed info - or at least, what I've managed to collect so far. As far as Henrietta Robinson, I've managed to track the Robinson's back to England - to about the 1400's..stil working on confirming some of that info! Would love to know who were your parents so we can see how we are related, as we apparently are. I noticed your name is father's brother was named Robert, and I also have a brother named Bob (Robert) so Bob is a common name in the family. You can contact me at My ancestry site is Merritt Family.
