Merrimon Straughn was my 4th-great grandfather. He was married to Hannah Vickery, daughter of Jehu Vickery and Lydia Levenwood Leonard, who I believe were Quakers. Our family records indicate the station in Dudley Township, Henry County, was named after Merrimon, now known as Straughn, IN. Supposedly, they were inn keepers of Straughn's Station.
For more info on this family, where would you suggest I look? I have located digital images of both of their gravestones.
