      The Pope book states that Burrage Merriam had 13 children. However, his children are not listed, so the 14 children listed under him in our website come from other sources. There is also a dispute as to whether William Louis Merriam belongs to this family. See Kit Cutting's note under William's record. --Jerry Boor, Web Tech
