I haven't been able to get so far back with my Merkels-Merkel is my maiden name but I've only gotten to the 1700's with them. My group arrived in the US in 1873. They came from Baden-Wuerttemberg at that time. I haven't been able to find anything before that. My tree is on Ancestry.com if you'd like to look at it. I've had a lot more success with all of the other families since I made my profile on here. I'd love to see what you have. I'm sure that the Merkels came to Baden from somewhere else.
I can't remember the exact age - I'd have to dig through what I found and saved for you. I'm sure it's him. He had the same first, middle and last name, plus the same DOB. I found a few census records and a marriage record from a church, if you'd like to see it. I'm sure you have all of that, though. Let me know. Sorry I took so long and don't have more time now. I should be back on regularly in the next day or so. Happy hunting! :)
Just thought I'd let you know that I was typing to you in chat, but my messages weren't going through. I had found George Buckley Wilson's draft registeration card that he filled out in Pa. Looks like he had a Mrs. Harriett Wilson(?) as nearest relative. Not sure if I read it right. It also looks like he has Electrical Engineer down as occupation.
