Mr. Merrill suffered a stroke some ten years ago from which he partially recovered, but a second one made him an almost helpless invalid and for the past two years he had been unable to do anything. He was twice married, his first wife being Miss Jane Wixson to whom 11 children were born, 6 still living. They are John Merrill and Mrs. Myrtle Cowan of Detroit; Herbert of Akron, OH; Mrs. James Walsh of Philadelphia; Mrs. Walter smith and George Merrill, Jr. of Croswell. His second wife, formerly Nettie Potts, to whom he was married 14 years ago, had been a patient nurse to him and with the children mourns his death. Three brothers, Alonzo of Croswell, John of Port Huron, and David of Seattle also survive him. The funeral will be held Friday afternoon from the Presbyterian church, conducted by Rev. H. G. Gaige, burial in the Croswell cemetery. 1
