Yes, I have a Ida Jane listed as a child of Lowra Monroe Merriman. I will give you all I have - this info came from my great aunt who is still living in Bridgeport, AL
William Alan Merriman married Malita Curby and they had the following children:
Lowra Monroe; William; Rufus; Milton Owen; Walter Lewis; Carolyne; Jane and Adeline.
Lowra Monroe Merriman married Martha Ann McGarr and they had the following children:
John Floyd; William Luther (my gg-grandfather); Tom Polk; Charles Richard; Homer Sewell; Annette Loyd; Ida Jane; Lillie Mae; Ethel Lee; Mollie Edna; Mattie Lowra and Josie. ** the date 1873 showes up beside Ida Elliott's name. . . could this be her birth year?
The father of William Alan Merriman was a Demarcus Merriman born about 1760-1770 in Lancaster Co., VA. He died in 1850 in Bledsoe Co. TN. He married Elizabeth (ukn) who was born about 1772 in N. C. So far nothing on Demarcus' parents.
I do have a tidbit on Martha Ann McGarr. . . her father William Issac McGarr came to America from Ireland as a stowaway during the potato famine. He married a Susan Shumake and Martha Ann was born in Pikeville, TN April 1852 and died on Feb. 13, 1925.
I hope this helps you. Debbie
