    Notes:

    Possibly the Henrich Merckel and Elisabeth Hoeflich(d/o Christian, of Paltz) married 12Oct1769 Schoharie Co.,NY(b.14jan1771 Schoharie) or Jacob Merckle of Canajoxharrie,Montgomery Co.,NY 1790 with 5 daughters living with him. I think this is the Jacob that later moved to Canada and was a loyalist during the war or Johannes Merckel and Catharina Becker

    Mary is listed in a land transaction in 1812 and mostly likely died before daughter Olive was born (assumed daughter of Abraham's wife, Olive)
