Title

Meros of Woodstock and Derby, Vermont: A Network of Free Black Families

Creator

Dwyer, Michael F.

Description

While the historical record of the Meros' Civil War service remains indisputable, research led to the discovery of two different Mero families living miles apart from one another. Parallels exist with Cesar Lewis, a Mero neighbor in Sutton, New Hampshire, and perhaps a relative by marriage, and Peter Nassau of Pomfret.
