Dispute between Pierre S. du Pont and Robert J Merrick

+6 votes

I started writing detailed biographies again and I know some of you have enjoyed the one's I wrote for Jacques Wertz, A.T. Conord, Joseph Pennock, Christopher Pennock and Samuel Levis (to name drop a few) so I wanted to share the one I just finished for Robert J Merrick. While not as intriguing as some of the others, I found the dispute with Pierre S. du Pont interesting and amusing. I was told that other farmers in the area praised Robert for standing up to du Pont while getting the price he did which helped the land values for the other farms (I'm still researching sources for that). If anyone has more information on the Merrick's please let me know. I'll be adding more as I can but in the meantime enjoy this first draft.
