Hi, Cindy,
Benoni Merrifield was the s/o Hedgman Merrifield and Joanna Merrill. Some researchers gives F. Hedgman Merrifield but can't prove this. Did not check my files before I got on this but Benoni was born in Ky (can't remember the Co!!). I am well aware of the records of Warren Co, Il because I researched there and sent same to Wayne C. Hart years ago. I am trying to get back to Warren and Knox Cos, Il To do more searching. Macoupin is just south of Warren. Want a good copy of the John Merrifield Rev War pension papers- have one but is very poor (copy of copy of copy, etc). Have indications of Merrifield's in Rock Island, Il (Quad cities) but have not been able to get there yet. Also a branch of Merrifield's in LaSalle Co I have to check out also. Am trying to do Ill records and substantiate/disprove data accordingly. Am trying to do everything that I can to help put this family together!!!

Confused-no- I uderstand you perfectly. Have worked with this family data for about 25 years. Will run my CD and see if I can come up with a death date of Benj. Abbott- will try the huge Soc Sec file at my local Gen Soc Lib also.

Macoupin Co, Il Mgs Vol 1; 6 Jul 1829-22 Dec 1839, pg 1, Rec #117: Abbott, Greenup to Elizabeth Mayfield, bd 24 Mar 1834, m 27 Mar 1834.

Davis', Springer, Mayfield/Maxfield/Mansfield mgs also listed. Lib also has 1850 Cen of Macouin Co will run that. Bunker Hill Cem, Macoupin Co, Il lists Davis, no Merrifield/etc, no Springers. Copied Mayfield/Maxfield/; Springer, earliest Davis women's marriages. No record to date of John Merryfield/Merrifield in Macoupin Co except for a very poor copy of his Rev Pension app.

Will try Warren Co and Knox Co next along with Cen of Macoupin Co.

Yes, I have seen the name Greenup Merrifield, believe I saw it in the Knox Co, Il History. Will recheck and see if I am right. I think there is a copy in my local Gen Lib in Bloomington. I thought I copied this data and sent it to Wayne C. Hart years ago when I did the other research. Of course that data may be lost. Do not know where his data is now. Am trying to find out how to post wills/mgs/land record/etc to this site for easy reference. That would be so much easier for all of us. We all have so much data. It would be nice to get it all "out there" for everyone to see and add to.

Hello again Mary. My Benjamin is a Merrifield.His mother, Delilah's maiden name was Abbott.I havent heard of the H.Merrifield you mentioned, if you come across anything I would appreciate it.Here is the oddity on my line. I am double related, because Delilahs moyher was Lydia Tucker, her mother was Mary Merrifield son of Samuel Sr. Then comes Benoni, who is also a Merrifield.Do you have any documents for Benonis father, and where he was born? In the 1880 census for cass co. mo. it states his parents were born in Ireland. I have been working with Pam quite a bit and we thought this was very interesting (the Ireland connection)Do you recall seeing Greenup Merrifield from Monmouth,Il? If so do you know who his father is? Well I hope to hear from you soon cindy

Surnames: merrifield, Welch, Douglas
Cindy, Sent you an email, intended to post here. Anyway, perhaps have a clue, really just a hunch. John A "Jack" Merrifield mar Sarah "Sallie" Welch and her GF James (IRE) mar a Miss Douglas. That is the only reference I have to the Douglas name and don't know if mar in US or Ire/Eng. As these families were so closely allied and intermarried so often, it is possible Douglas' married into other Merrifield lines and the ones Greenup was staying with in Warren Co were relatives. Know this doesn't give you much, but maybe a clue? Would really be interested if you or anyone does find a connection, as this Miss Douglas would be one of my several Xs greats. Am desc of John A and Sarah Welch.
Loice

Hi. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Yes my Mary Merrifield was married to George Tucker. That is my line, Lydia Tucker married Johnston Abbott, had a daughter Delilah Abbott who married my gggrandfather Benoni Merrifield. Looks like they were related somehow, if his father was indeed John (Priscella Davis) Merrifield. Benoni had a son Benjamin, my great great grandfather he had a dughter Cora, she married Maurice Doyle, and had my grandma Hannah. The date I have for Benoni is 1811. So I think we are on the same page. Hopefully IO will have time to get back with this research. Cindy
