NOTE: In 1910 & 1915, a Merrill White, said to have been a girl, born about 1908, lived in the household of Nellie White (who was clearly the mother of Homer E. Wood's wife, Jenjnie M. White). Who was this?  Was this actually Merrill Wood, who clearly lived with his father, Homer E. Wood, and Homer's wife, Jennie, later on.  This "daughter," which in 1910 was supposed to have been listed as a daughter or granddaughter of the head of household, was listed after son, Lawrence, 24. Whas Lawrence the father of a girl named Merrill?

Further, in the1935  city directory, a Merrell A. White, whose name was Mary M, was a laborer living at 3 Janson, Utica, NY.  Who is that?? They were also shown in the 1933 directory, same place and occupation.  In this case, he is obviously a man.

The 1925 NY census shows a Merril White, step-son of Homer Wood. Homer's wife is shown to be Jennie Wood.Merrill White was 17 years old, so he was born about 1908.
