I am trying to link our families together as it makes sense with Merlin being such an uncommon name. My Grandmother's father was Merlin Hunter, though formally named John von Merlin Hunter b. either 27Oct1857 in Luther, MI, or 12Feb1858 in Ludington, MI. He was married twice and eventually died in WI. He father is supposedly Fred Hunter, but that could have been a middle name. We do know that Merlin had a sister whose name was either Maude or Alice nad she married a Wedge from Rhinelander, WI. In Merlin's first marriage, he had three children, Bill, Maude and a third child. His children through his second marriage are Fred, Edward, Jeff, Dorothy, Harry, Merlin, Verna, Donald, and Edna. If you see any links, please, let me know. Thank you for your help!
