  1. We are looking for any information on my uncle David A Merrow. He was born on June 28, 1925 in Dorset, Bennington, VT to Albina R Bushee. His birth name was Harold Benny Bushee. Harold was “adopted” as an infant by James Alphonse Merrow and Marie Louise La Bounty and given the name David A Merrow.
    David’s adoptive father died in an accident when David was seven years old. David lived with Marie in various places in the Orleans County, VT area and moved to Hardwick, Caledonia County, VT with Marie after her marriage to William H Beede in June, 1941.
    David enlisted in the US Army in Hardwick, VT on April 24, 1943. He entered Active Duty on September 24, 1943. David was “Killed in Action” and buried somewhere in France on October 06, 1944. David was disinterred in 1948, returned to the US and reburied on April 25, 1948. Burial was in “St. John of the Cross Cemetery” East Albany, Orleans County, Vermont. Services were at St Norbert’s Church and Holcomb Funeral Home both in Hardwick, There is no marker of any kind that indicates that David is buried there.
