1. My maternal grandmother was Rosa Merrill Abercrombie’s sister. Did you know that 2 of John William’s
    sisters married 2 of Rosa Merrill’s brothers? Viola Ann Abercrombie (b. 1876) married Walter B. Merrill
    in 1894. They had 3 children. Mary Frances Abercrombie (b. 1878) married Hugh Davis Merrill in 1899. They had 1 child. Both Viola and Mary Frances died in childbirth at age 25.

    1. Thank you for the additional information, Lynn.
