I am trying to find information out about the Howard MERRILL family that
lived in Tama Co., IA. They were living there at the time of the 1870
census, probably having moved there after 1860.
I think this Howard's wife is the sister of my g.g.grandfather and I am
trying to make contact with anyone who might be able to shed some light on
this family in Tama County. Providing I can make the connection, the wife's
lineage goes back to pre-Revolutionary America
I would appreciate any help you are able to offer.

just as the memories of my grandfathers and great-grandmothers
left with them, and unless they are given and passed on,
it is as if those things had never been..."
