Biography of Ony Merrill of Byron, NY

Ony Merrill, son of Jared and Abigail Merrill, came to Byron and bought the Sawyer farm and the saw-mill, and afterwards 100 acres northwest of Byron, known as the Green farm, where he lived over 30 years. He built a saw-mill on Spring Creek, which was a great convenience to the early pioneers. In 1860 he moved to Orleans County and died there, aged 77 years. He was three times married. Nelson, one of his sons, bought the Asa Merrill place (settled in 1811), where he now resides.
