Richard & Carrie Merchant and Family

This is a very popular family to research.  Of course, when that happens, there is conflicting information.  I've done my best to be accurate with the data I have to date, using some logic to fill in where I don't have primary sources. 

The Merchant family name is often shown as Marchant.  From what I can find, the two names are interchangeable, especially in the earlier generations.  I'm listing the names as I've found them, so you could very well see them intermixed.

Please feel free to contact me about this family, and correct any obvious errors.
