In LDS records, I have two Mercer lines on my paternal side. I am wondering if this is the Solomon Mercer listed as my 7 great grandfather who was listed as married to Olive Pyle.
I am trying to get my leneage records correct but, I haven't taken a DNA test just yet. Ancestory.org seems to agree with these records but my paternal grandmother, Earlina Alvina Baugher's Cousin wrote a book that disagrees with these records via a written testament of a close relative of this listed persons grandchildren and listed for the Baugher family for the purpose of the Baugher family records only. Thank you for any help. #Baugherfamilyreunion #2020
The name's that are listed in the book and dates are as follows: (my direct line)
Parents: Ronald Edward Martin '57'
Sonja Mae Henderson '57'
Gp: Carroll Wyatt Martin 1934-1991
Earlina Alvina Baugher 1938-2005
1gp: Bernie Benjamin Baugher 1915-1991
Alvina Murriel Lenwell 1919-1967
2gp: Charles Fredrick Baugher 1893-1976
Iva Myrtle Mercer 1897-1970
3gp: George Wesley Mercer 1855-1922
Mahalia Armenda Acord 1864-1916
4gp: Solomon Robert Ream Mercer 1830-1900 C.W.U.
Elizabeth Roberts 1831-1926
In the Baugher records it states that Solomans father was named Robert and he had a brother nambe henry. It states the brother's owned a large plot of land in the New Amsterdam settlement.(I assume in Pennsylvania...) They leased it for 99 years to the government and left for England leaving Solomon's wife and child behind. It also states that one of the brother's died on the way back but, doesn't state whom.
The maiden name is listed as Mary Elizabeth Ream/Redenbaugh and the dates of birth are unknown...
Any help is greatly appreciated.
