AMES, LOSEY, PALMER, SHAW posted by Aaron Earl on Friday, September 2, 2005

I am researching an Amy (LOSEY) AMES. She was married in 1837 or there abouts to a Sylvanus Ames. Then around the 1840s (some time between 1842 and 1849) to a Griffin Palmer. She had four children with Sylvanus Elijah B-1838 he was part of Company Y, 45th PA Vol. Inf. during the Civil War. There was a Clark B-1840 Killed in the Civil War, Louisa B-1842, and Matilda B-1845. Amy then married a Griffin PALMER and they had two children Loyal Palmer Born June 1853 and Arvesta Palmer Born April 1856. All are from Middlebury Pa (Tioga County). Amy also had an adopted son that lived with her in 1880 named Willie SHAW (nothing is known about him except he was probably born in 1876 since he was four inthe 1880 census). We believe there is an Indian in one or two generations back from Amy. Possibly a chief, and possibly related to Cornplanter. I have no other information but any one that might know anything please contact me. This is very frustrating. There is also a Biography of Elijah Ames floating around someplace. I've searched all over the internet and different web-sites and anyone that might know anything of this would be appreciated. Thank you very much

MERRICK posted by Ruth A. Larson on Saturday, September 24, 2005

MERRICK: I am searching for information about Professor D.R. Merrick who by Sept 15, 1916 was the Principal of the Coundersport public school system having left his position in Elk county. I am compiling a booklet about former rural and early school teachers once of Elk and several nearby counties. Professor Merrick resigned his position as Asst. Supt. of Elk county schools sometime prior to 1916. His position in Elk County was filled by O.G.F. Bonnert I would like to find out about Prof Merrick's educational background and teaching background and I would also like to find out if he continued to teach in Coundersport until he retired. If a copy of his obit. could be found then all of my questions would probably be answered. To find a picture of him as a young student or teacher would be "icing on the cake." Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated.
