    Notes 
    • Claude, the third son of Amos Merriam, was born in Avonlea and spent four years in the Army during the war.

      After the war, he carried on in his father's footsteps as a carpenter until his death in 1967. In 1948, he married Idella Ring of Avonlea. Idella lived in Avonlea until her death

      Claude was an avid hockey and baseball fan and was known as "Mighty" by his many friends.

      Idella was a great source for this family and I still have her letters.
