      Actual text on attestation papers reads that Joseph Elliot Merriam was born in Cowansville, Illinois. However, a thorough search of online resources does not seem to indicate there was a Cowansville, Illinois. MFT believes there is a strong possibility the birth place should have listed Collinsville, Illinois. If anyone has other evidence, please let MFT know. --Note by Jerry Boor, Web Technician
