83 "PERREGRINE MAITLAND GROVER - Notes compiled by: Kit Cutting

Perregrine Maitland Grover - generally known to his many friends and associates simply as "P.M." - was born in Grafton, Ontario, CANADA, a small community in the southern part of Northumberland County, in 1817. He was a son of John Grover, a Major in the Militia, and Marry Merriam, both of whom were of staunch U.E. Loyalist families and had come to Canada from the town of Grafton in the state of Massachussetts, U.S.A., and settled in the newly formed township.

During his early manhood, P.M. moved about a great deal in the new country, gaining a knowledge of the people and conditions that was to become of vast importance to him in later years. About 1842, he settled in the young town of Peterborough where he entered into partnership with James Foley, who, a short time later, became his brother-in-law. The firm of Grover & Foley, originally a real "general" store, included a lumber yard, a similar branch of the business in the hamlet of Keene, as well as the small store of James Foley, located in Norwood, which had been opened in 1837.

In 1846, Mr. Grover married Harriet Maria Keeler, a daughter of the original founder of our fair village. Shortly thereafter, the Keeler and Grover interests were united and the firm of Grover & Foley was dissolved, both men finding it necessary to return to Norwood where a rapidly expanding community demanded their full attention. Soon after merging of the Keeler - Grover interests, systematic planning and surveying was undertaken for the establishment of the village, which did not fully materialize for many years thereafter.

Mr. Grover was a man of many talents and widely diversified interests, all of them pertaining to the advancement and welfare of his chosen community. About 1850, he built "Balsam Farm Home" amid the rolling acres which were under his control and management. The home is still standing and, although showing the ravages of time and the relentless elements, is today a beautiful spot on the northeasterly side of Mill Street. It was here too, that the family were born and reared.

In 1860, P.M. was elected as Reeve of the Township of Asphodel and served in that capacity until the end of 1866, and in the election of Warden of the County early in 1867, he was elected to that position, which he also held for the succeeding year. In 1867, Mr. Grover entered into the political field as a Conservative candidate for Federal honours and defeated his opponent, James Anderson, by a vote of 956 to 644, thus becoming the representative of this area in the First Parliament of Canada after Confederation. He was re-elected to the second Parliament in 1872, defeating his opponent, Evans Ingraham of Otonabee, by a majority of 48 votes. Those two victories are a plain indication of the esteem in which he was held, together with his personal interest in local affairs. His manifesto to the electors prior to the second election is concrete evidence that he was a statesman rather than an ordinary politician, catering to his constituents alone.

Notes for Perregrine Maitland GROVER: The biographical sketch is taken from "The Friendly Town 1821 - 1963" by R.A. Dean, a Centennial Project (1967) of the Village of Norwood, p. 172-175:

90 "When the alarm was given in Concord that the British soldiers were coming, Josiah Meriam, with his sons Josiah, Jr., and Timothy, went to the village, and were later among the forces at the North Bridge, and probably crossed the meadows and appeared again at the encounter near the house. Joseph, Josiah's youngest son, then seven years old, remained at home, as he always said, 'to take care of the women', and soon went with them to a place of refuge behind the hill. The British soldiers entered the house, helped themselves to whatever breakfast they could find, taking the unbaked pies from the oven..." MERRIAM, Josiah (I5236)

163 MFT believes Pope incorrectly recorded Isaac's death date and marital status. Several sources show he was married. His date of death is shown as 1934 on his gravestone in the Hillside Cemetery, Auburn, Massachusetts.
 
MERRIAM, Isaac Stone (I13736)
 
164 MFT now believes Maria was not the daughter of Ephraim Merriam and Mary Brooks. Birth records show she was born 30 May 1809 in Concord, MA the daughter of William Swan and Mary (Brooks) Merriam who married William after the death of Ephraim Merriam. Her birth name was Maria Merriam Swan. She married Darius J Hatch in Concord, MA 27 May 1845. RD Merriam 11/2018.  MERRIAM, Maria (I11647)
 
165 MFT now believes Pope incorrectly recorded this person as the daughter of Daniel Merriam, I5359. Records show she was really Emily Edna ROBINSON, I13208, born in Surry, NH 17 Mar 1818 to Samuel and Nancy (Harvey) Robinson. She married Daniel Merriam, I5540, 11 Sep 1840 in Walpole, NH. MERRIAM, Emily E (I11958)
 
166 Most likely Littleton, MA MERRIAM, Mary (I4950)
 
167 No records have been located to prove this Albert Merriam ever existed. MERRIAM, Albert (I11957)
 
168 Note: Anyone having information regarding the parents of Joseph Merriam are asked to please contact us at Administrators@MerriamFamilyTree.org MERRIAM, Joseph (I77222)
 
169 NOTE: Deborah Merriam Peckham suggests this person may be the same one as MERRIAM, Robertina A (I15649). Her family records show there never was an Eliza in this family. MERRIAM, Eliza (I10266)
 
170 Note: Elizabeth City County, Virginia was merged into the independent city of Hampton, VA in 1952.  HIGGINS, Warren Herbert Sr (I74725)
 
171 Note: In spite of the apparent date conflicts, MFT believes this person is the same person as William Holmes MERRIAM (I13387). Massachusetts Vital Records show only one person by that name having been born the Abel MERRIAM and Betsey. Suspect Pope double recorded the same person due to the different dates.  MERRIAM, William Holmes 2nd (I13388)
 
172 NOTE: MFT suspects this date was confused with the birth date of Lavina MERRIAM, (I62170). WATTS, Elizabeth G (I62171)
 
173 NOTE: Pope incorrectly recorded the marriage location of Heman and Triphena. Family F2107
 
174 NOTE: Records indicate he was born David Service the son of John and Margaret Service. John was born in Scotland and Margaret was born in Quebec, Canada. Why David was living with and adopted by Charles and Eleanor Merriam is not know.  MERRIAM, David (I75481)
 
175 The history of Walpole, NH shows that Daniel's parents moved to Walpole from Littleton, MA in November 1782. Based on that, MFT believes Pope incorrectly recorded Daniel's birth as being in Walpole rather than Littleton, MA. MERRIAM, Daniel (I5359)
 
176 The history of Walpole, NH shows that John's parents moved there from Littleton, MA in November 1782. Based on that, MFT believes John was born in Littleton, Ma rather than Walpole, NN as recorded by Pope. MERRIAM, John (I5357)
 
177 The history of Walpole, NH shows that Richard's parents moved there from Littleton, MA in November 1782. Based on that, MFT believes Richard was born in Littleton, MA rather than Walpole as recorded by Pope. MERRIAM, Richard (I5358)
 
178 The history of Walpole, NH states Lydia was born in Lexington, MA., however, in that her parents lived in Littleton, MA until November 1782 when they moved to Walpole, NH MFT believes she was probably born in Littleton, MA.  MERRIAM, Lydia (I4949)
 
179 NOTE: Kit Cutting, along with Bill Parker and Don Boyle, have searched for many years the town records of Massachusetts to connect this John MERRIAM to his parents with no luck. If anyone finds any information, please be certain to contact Merriam Family Tree. MERRIAM, John (I8953)
 
180 NOTE: This branch of MERRIAMs resulted from a name change and is not descended from the MERRIAMs of Concord, Massachusetts.

Two brothers (who were third great grandsons of John MARION, born in 1620 in England) changed their names to MERRIAM. These brothers were Joseph and William, four generations down from John Marion, as follows:

John Marion
Samuel Marion
Isaac Marion
Ignatius Marion
Joseph & William MERRIAM


Since the descendants of this branch, beginning with Joseph and William, are indeed named MERRIAM, we are pleased to be able to include them in Merriam Family Tree.

WARNING: Do not add descendants to this family with the last name MARION - only descendants whose names were changed to MERRIAM are being tracked by this branch.

181 NOTE: We are looking for information that leads us to the parents of this Isaac MERIAM. If anyone has this information, please contact us at administrators@merriamfamilytree.org. MERIAM, Isaac (I61472)
 
182 NOTE: Although Samuel Milo MERRIAM was not recorded by the Pope book, the available birth records indicate he was the son of Samuel Merriam and Lucy Wheeler.  MERRIAM, Samuel Milo (I73693)
 
183 Note: Based on currently available records, marriage, census, etc. MFT believes Pope incorrectly recorded the William Merriam who married Alice Haggart. MFT believes it was William Foster MERRIAM (I75547) not William MERRIAM (I6064) MERRIAM, William Foster (I75547)

187 Note: Both the 1900 and 1910 US Census reports show a marriage date of 1890 which seems more likely than 1880 as May was born in 1870 and would have been only 10 years old in 1880. Furthermore, the 1880 US Census taken on 19 Jun 1880 shows Chester living at home in Randolph, Ohio. Family F3216
 
188 Note: Deborah Merriam Peckham suggests this person and MERRIAM, Eliza (I10266) are the same person. She believes Pope incorrectly recorded the name Eliza as she says there is no record of an Eliza in this family. MERRIAM, Robertina A (I15649)
 
189 NOTE: His birth is recorded as 9 Jun 1901, however that is in conflict with the birth date of his brother Donald S Merriam who records show was born 8 May 1901. Possibly they are the same person as Daniel does not appear in the 1910 US Census and Donald does. More clarification is needed. MFT  MERRIAM, Daniel (I72996)
 
190 NOTE: It seems unlikely that this person was the son of Jacob and Mary Merriam as they would have been 14 and 11 years age respectively at the time of his recorded birth. Further investigation is required. MERRIAM, James O (I9674)
 
191 At least one living or private individual is linked to this note - Details withheld. YORGASON, Jon Michael (I72911)

193 NOTE: MFT believes Hannah married James Russell (I9517) after the death of her 1st husband, John Merriam (5219). MFT believes Pope incorrectly recorded James Russell as the husband of Hannah Merriam (I4594) who was the daughter of the above Hannah and John Merriam. HALL, Hannah (I4657)
 
194 NOTE: MFT believes Pope incorrectly record this person as the 2nd wife of Amos Merriam (5279). Records show she was the wife of Amos Merriam (I5392) and is the same person as Susan Knights (I12225) MERRIAM, Sukey ? (Wife Of Amos) (I5066)
 
195 NOTE: MFT believes Pope incorrectly recorded Hannah as being the wife of James Russell (I9517). Based on available records, MFT now believes she was the wife of Josiah Flint (I71685).  MERRIAM, Hannah (I4594)

198 NOTE: MFT believes Pope incorrectly recorded this person as the daughter of Amos Merriam (I5279). Records show she was the daughter of Amos Merriam (I5392) and the same person as Susan (Sukey) Merriam (I12226).  MERRIAM, Sukey (I5070)
