I've run into a dead end on our Merritt family tree and need some help. Last person found was Masten Merritt born 6 November 1783, died 17 March 1839. Married to Rachael Sherwood 1784-1864. They were married in 1828 in
Esopus, Ulster, NY where they lived for several years before moving to Buffalo NY where he passed away. They had six children, Elizabeth,Samuel,Nathan,George,William and Henry. The spelling of his name may have varied also. Masten may have been Maston and Merritt may have been Merrett. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
