    Notes 
    • Allen Johnson Merriam, born in the Chatsworth, Ontario area, moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba where he worked as a Teamster. He married his first wife, Winnifred Louisa Johnson, in 1894. At some time after their marriage they moved back to Holland Twp, Grey Co, Ontario, where they had three children.

      They then moved to Winnipeg and they had two more children who died young.

      By 1906, Winnifred had left Allen and the three children were found in a children's home.

      By 1908, Allen Merriam is living and married to Sarah Boothy. They go on to have eight children. There are a lot of missing pieces in this family. I am not sure the children are all correct.

      Sources are census, Winnipeg directory, attestation records and notes from Bonnie Foster.
