In the book "Centennial History of Belmont County, Ohio" on page 652 it has a bio of William A. Merritt and his great grandfather was Daniel Merritt. It states that Daniel entered 640 acres of land bought from the Gov. in 1805. It states that his brother who was a surveyor, platted it. I'm looking for the name of the brother. I have a Moses in the county paying taxes in 1806 could this be his brother? Would greatly appreciate any and all information on this family.
