Biography

Son of Col. Alexander Meroney and Mary Polly Hendricks, John was born in Davie County, North Carolina on December 9, 1829. At the age of 20, he worked as a clerk in Davie County.[1] By 1860, he was a merchant, living in Camden, South Carolina and working on his own account,[2] He married Katherine Reid sometime after 1860 and it's possible that John had suffered an injury, or illness, as he was listed in the 1880 census as not working, but his wife worked in millinery. His cousin, Kate, also lived in the home and worked as a milliner. The family had a housekeeper who lived in.[3] In 1900, when John was 70 and his wife was 67, their widowed daughter, Alma Williams, and her son lived with them, along with their youngest daughter, Katherine. No one worked; but they also had a boarder.[4] He is believed to have died in 1909.
