  • Notes 
    • John is a descendant of Hezekiah Meroth who was head of a family that changed their surname to Munroe.

      John is probably the John Meraw who on 4 Jul 1780 enlisted in Capt. Lemuel Clapp's Company. He was also a private in Capt. Elijah Vose's Company, 36th Regiment, in Oct 1775.

      After John's death, Lucy remarried in the same year that their daughter, Lucy married. There is confusion about which Lucy married which husband. The two grooms are John Deluce of Dorchester married 26 May 1797 at Cambridge, and William Searle married 1 Oct 1797.
