I found your Dr. Merrithew. His name is Edwin W. He was born at Gold Run, Placer County, CA on Nov. 23, 1880, a son of Moses W. Merrithew and Annie Elizabeth Hewitt. Moses moved from Belfast, ME, following the gold rush and was born July 4, 1837. Annie was a native Californian, born in San Fancisco in 1854. Edwin served as a medical director of the Contra Costa County Hospital for 37 years (1911-1948). The hospital change its name in his honor in August, 1985; now known as Merrithew Memorial Hospital and Clinics.

I have a copy of a letter from the hospital and write-ups of his life. I also have his lineage in a genealogy by Marion Fisher, a Merrithew researcher from Stockton Springs, ME. If you want to send me your snail-mail address I can send you photocopies of this material. My addresses are below.
