John 6-36 and Jemima 7-106

I've been looking at the Supplement to Captain Benjamin Merrill and the Merrill family of North Carolina on, and I was wondering if any of you can shed some light on the John (6-36) located on page 99. More particularly on 7-106 his daughter Jemima Merrill.

Does anyone know if this John and his daughter Jemima lived in Monongalia County (Morgantown area) [W] VA? It appears as though John's son Andrew (7-107) did. The reason I ask is I've been looking for my ggg grandmother Jemima Merrill who married John Morgan. I've heard she was born in either 1803 or 1814, in Monongalia County, [W]V. She was supposedly married in 1833 in Harrison County, Ohio (though that has yet to be positively confirmed). That would have made her 19 at the time of marriage, if this is my Jemima. So she's the exact age.

Here's an example of what I've done with my Merrill/Morgan line that married into the Hixon/Tope family.
My ggg grandmother Jemima Merrell married John Morgan, supposedly in Harrison County, Ohio, but that is still unconfirmed. She and her husband John died in Gallia County, Ohio.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist me in my quandry. But I feel that I'm finally closing in after looking for the last 30+ years for her family. Did a stone wall come crumbling down? Hopefully!

Thanks again,

Linda Trent
