I have been working on my family going back past Nathaniel Merrill who came to Newburyport, MA in the 1630s. I am trying to find any Revolutionary soldiers in this tree. I do have a gravestone for a Joseph Merrill who is a direct ancestor of mine. Has anyone used him as their patriot? or do you have info on him. Many Thanks

There is a Private Joseph Merrill who is an established patriot. He was born in 1744 at Salisbury, Essex County, MA, and he died in 1786 at Turner, Cumberland County, MA. (I think this is now in Maine.)

Since this is a common name, you would need to prove that this man is your ancestor.
