    2. Title: NOTE
      Text: The father/son relationship between Felix and Friederich Merckel is highly speculative and is supported solely by the fact that Ellsabetha (Merckel) Würth, daughter of Felix Merckel, was sponsor at the baptism of Friederich's daughter Elisabetha in 1704.

      Text: "Searches in Dr. Arta Johnson's collections of the records of 6733 Haßloch/Bohl reveal the probable father of the emigrant Friederich Merckel may have been Felix Merckel: Elisabetha, d/o the late Felix Merckel, md. 13 Aug 1704 Johann Ludwig Würth there, and this same Elisabetha Würth sp. the emigrant 1709er Friederich Merckel at Haßloch in 1704 also! Arta was also kind enough to transcribe the Haßloch Gerichtbuch [Court book] and share the results with me; she noted "Fridrich Merckel, von hier [from here]" was listed 26 Nov 1700."

      [Question why, if Felix was Friedrich's father, none of Friedrich's children were named for him.]
