52 Ancestors Week 31- Mark Merryweather

This weeks theme is "Easy". So I chose one of the ancestors that has been researched by several people before me. When your family is Mormon, chances are there is at least one genealogist in the bunch, and they have done some of the work for you, making it easy to find.

Mark Merryweather was born on October 24, 1836, in Newton, England to Martha Gray and George "Mathew" Merryweather. He was child number 7 out of 8 born in that family.

Mark Merryweather married Sarah Ann Thick on April 3, 1858, in Newton, England. They had 9 children.



According to the book of remembrance of Gayle Preston Wood, Mark was a detective for the Scotland Yard; I have not found evidence to support or refute this claim.

Mark Merryweather died on April 14, 1879, in Wiltshire, England, when he was 42 years old.
