Hi Cousin: Genealogy and my research shows that William Franklin Merrifield was born 20 Jan 1833 at New London OH, m 3 Oct 1855 to Juda Julia Smith. He died 19 Dec 1908 at Hicksville OH. His Mother was supposed to have died in that town. Her name was supposedly Mary or Polly or Molly, no last name know. I have been looking for her last name for ever. William Merrifield was William Franklin's Father. He was b 8 Dec 1793 in Leicester, Addison Vt, according to the Merrifield history, however, Leicester has no records that help in proving it. William was supposed to have stopped over in NY. I do have a copy of his war of 1812 certificate, and of his wives pension, but neither one helps. I have had researchers in OH trying to find out the surname of his wife without luck. William Merrifield's father was Joseph Merrifield, b 6 Dec 1767 in Hiram, MA. His mother was Hannah Estey. Hanah's line goes back to the witches of Salem, her g g grandmother was Mary Estey hung as a witch. Joseph Merrifield's b 1767, father was also Joseph Merrifield. He married Katheryn Jillson 18 Jan 1784 in Holliston MA. Katheryn Jillison's father was Uriah Jillson. The Jillson's married into the William Arnold Family, well known in RI. One of William Arnold's g grandchildren was benedict Arnols. Joseph Merrifield b 1740 fathe was also Joseph Merrifield bv 1712, m Hannah Hill. Hsnnsh was the daughter of EWbenezer Hill and Mary White. Joseph Merrifield b 1712 was the son of another Joseph Mewrrifield b 1675, his wife was Margaret Warden, I have been unable to find anything at all about her. Joseph's father was John Merrifield b 1643 in Dorchester MA. His wife was Sarah Roard. John's father was Henry Merrifield, about his wife I know nothing. Hope that helps.
