Deane Merrill: FTM Online Home Page

Updated September 5, 2000

My main Genealogy Home Page ( provides links to 22 searchable data bases in GENDEX. These include databases which I am currently hosting for other authors. Please be sure to direct questions to the proper data base author in each case. Also included on that home page are summaries of my principal ancestral lines, my relationship to some cousins, and some useful references. A URL link is provided below.The GENDEX databases, and the reports on this page, represent work in progress. My immediate sources are indicated but not, in general, the primary sources from which they are derived.Here on my FTM Online home page, the report "Ancestors of Deane Whitney Merrill (1908-1987) corresponds to GENDEX database dwmerrill, developed by my brother Jon Merrill from primary and secondary sources, as described in the inline notes and the source endnotes.The InterneTree corresponds to the same GENDEX database dwmerrill.The report "Ancestors of Harriet Ray Merrill (1909-1978) corresponds to GENDEX database ray1. Database ray1 was derived from GENDEX database dwmerrill, from primary sources investigated by my first cousin Peter Ray; then database ray1 was augmented from additional secondary sources as described in the inline notes and source endnotes.The report "Descendants of John Merrill (1706/7-1741)" corresponds to GENDEX database dwmerrill12. Many of John's known descendants lived in Franklin County, Massachusetts. Some of the links in database dwmerrill12 are conjectural, as described in the inline notes and the source endnotes. In particular, it is not proven that Thaddeus Merrill b.abt.1777, the husband of Achsah Severance, is the son of Nathaniel Merrill b.1731/2.
