I can't say with certainty that Merlin is a descendant of Daniel Hunter and Susanna Chamberlain of Amenia, NY (1790 census) then later of Colchester, Delaware Co., NY (1800 census); but I think it very probable. Daniel was among the first to settle in the area of Colchester after the Revolutionary War. I'm still researching this family, but so far I have children listed as Arnold b. 1778, Ovilla b. 1780, (possibly)Merlin b. 1782, and Daniel, Jr. born 1784. The time frame of his birth is about right. Daniel and Susanna were married in Amenia, Dutchess Co., NY Sept 16, 1773. Daniel is believed to have been a soldier during the war. Further, it is believed he is of Scottish descent -- but more research needs to be done. Also, the fact that you list one of Merlin's children as Susan further suggests a link to Susanna Chamberlain.
