1. John Merring, son of George Mearing and Mary Ann, was born on 17 Apr 1774 in Morris, NJ and died on 30 May 1842 in Sussex NJ at age 68.

General Notes: Married to Maryanne Coss by the Rev Jacob Senn of Stillwater Reformed Church in Sussex Co. NJ (Book A,16)
.John and Mary Mering began housekeeping upon what is now called “Fox Hill’ near Branchville N.J.
It may seem strange yet true, a couple contemplating marriage was required to give an account of their belongings in those days. An extract taken from a clipping of a copy of the Wave, March 5 1879, gives a brief account of John Mering and Mary Coss, Stating that their Worldly possessions were somewhat limited consisting on her part of one Saxon Bible, one chair, one knife, and a fork, two plates, and a pair of shears. His part consisted of one axe, one smooth rifle, one wooden bench, one mule skin pocket book and a good jack knife. And in this primitive style they went to work. This Family is a good specimen of the honest, sober hard working pioneers who laid the foundations of society deep and strong.
In 1801 they removed to Sandystone Township, along Big Flatbrook river , Just north of Tuttle’s corner and there purchased a tract of land almost a wilderness at the time.

John Mering’s first log house was built about mid way from the main road, on the left side of the lane leading to the farm house of Mrs. Lotta Rowe Anthony, which is a part of the original farm, now conducted as a girls camp/ (YMCA). In 1805 he purchased an adjoining tract of land of Gertrude Parker and he added other tracts to this from time to time as his family grew up. In 1828 he purchased another tract of John Rutherford, which increased his holdings to 525 acres. After building a house he began clearing up the land to raise something to support him and raising family, and by industry and perseverance the forest was opened around him, and in a few years he had quite an improvement, so that he began to have a herd of cattle, flocks of sheep, horses, turkeys, hogs etc. He also had Sons and Daughters to help indoors and out, Produce and all kinds of Stock commanded a high price, and was bought up and driven away by drovers, who followed the valley west of the mountain the turnpike being the principal avenue of transportation. As his family grew up he found his log house to small for their accommodation, and he built another near the first leaving a passage of 5 or 6 feet between them through which mounting a ladder, they entered the chambers through a passage made by sawing off the logs: The shingle roofs were joined together so as to cover the passageway between them. They were not costly mansions, yet the erection of one did require two skillful axe men, one on each corner to cut and notch and fit them to there place His barns and stables were large, built of logs and roofed with straw for a time, as was the custom in those days. Later these roofs were replaced with shingles, split and shaved. One of these barns was standing in 1925, the roof in perfect condition.
And like patriarchs of old, in the center, as his sons and Daughters Married, They settled around him
John Mering Died May 30, 1842. He lost his life under conditions having the appearance that he had been Murdered, He had sold a team of young horses, as he raised many, for a magnificent sum, and delivered them to “Brick house” and returned on foot. Near his home was a crossing log, over Big Flatbrook and here he was found drowned. A heavy club was lying at one end of the crossing log, there was no money with him and the supposition was that he had been stunned with the club and drowned while in a dazed condition.
Mary Mering his wife, kept the original home and the farm was divided among the children, the sons purchasing the lands inherited by the daughters she remained here until 1860 when owing to the infirmities of age, she decided to live with her daughter Rebecca. John and Mary’s final resting place is in the Frankford Plains Cemetery

General Notes: Memoriel to Israel Mering as written by Warren Mering in The Book "The Mering Family"


IN MEMORY OF ISRAEL MERING, 1853-1924.

A man--all his life,
And one who flagged not in this earthly strife,
But lived and tried and helped and carried on--
Filled well each niche that he had drawn--
And finally with many battles won,
Aweary, spent--he smiled and sighed, “Tis done.”
Although not destined to achieve conspicuous eminence in the world, it would be a great mistake to say that Israel Mering was not a success. He was. He did well any and everything that it fell to his lot to do. He made firm friends and kept them. He gave faithful, intelligent and loyal service. He met his obligations honestly and he played the game fairly and squarely and his friendship was real and genuine.
Israel Mering, was born in Sandyston Township, Sussex County, N. J., November 20, 1853, a son of Isaac Mering and Elizabeth Struble, one of a family of twelve children. His earlier years were spent on the home farm. In 1878 he engaged in lumbering and lime business which he carried on successfully for four years. In 1870 he was married to Ella Hendershot, of Sandyston Township. In 1882 he engaged in farming, renting some good farms in the County. He was a good stockman and a good horseman and his judgment was often asked for in regard to a particular specimen. He raised some of the best horses ever produced in Sussex County, and he was a trainer sometimes subduing some unruly horses for his neighbors. In 1899 he bought the John VanAtta farm in Hampton Township where he carried on the dairy business until 1912, when he sold this farm and purchased the William DeWitt farm in Frankford Township. On account of his health, he sold this farm in 1920 to his son who still resides there. He then purchased a residence in Branchville that he might enjoy the fruits of his labors in his declining years.
To those who know but little of the man whose venerable form is now clad in the habiliments of the grave, this language may seem some what extravagant. But the writer of these lines--who is himself no longer young, and has seen enough of the gloss and tinsel which in this world passes too often for pure gold to make him somewhat cynical--is the last one to indulge at such a time in insincere compliments or in unmerited eulogiums.
For over forty-four years the closet personal and business intimacy subsisted between the deceased and the writer, and when we say beyond all men that we ever knew he was a model of manly probity, we are unconscious of uttering aught but the simple truth. There have existed many men of more capacious intellect, many of a higher fancy and better calculated to dazzle the multitude with sparkling rhetoric and radiant wit; but for the solid courtesy of a true gentleman, the jocund good humor of an every day companion, the ever-ready sympathy and kindness of a warm friend and the good common sense, the sterling worth, and the invincible integrity that may be relied upon either for wise counsel or safe example, there are few persons that ever lived who furnished a better model than Israel Mering. Ripe in years of usefulness, in the love of kindred and friends, and in the esteem of the public, he sinks at last to his final rest. He leaves to his family a fair amount of wealth honestly earned, as well as the richer legacy of a good name won by the consistent practice of those moral and social virtues which all admired and few emulate. Sincere, unaffected, and humane, upright and exact in all his dealings; forbearing to the erring; exhibiting the same courtesy and consideration towards all.
Death overtook him at his home on Broad Street, Branchville, N. J., Tuesday morning, August 26. He had been troubled with stone in the kidney for several years but the direct cause of his death was due to a stroke. He is survived by his widow, and one son, Warren Mering, of Augusta, N. J. also two brothers and two sisters, Peter S., of Powell, Pa.; Andrew, of Swartswood, N. J.; Mrs., Rebecca Ayers, of Beemerville, N. J., and Mrs. John I. Barber, of Newton, N. J. Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Fletcher S. Garris, of Mariners Harbor, N. Y., a long time friend, were held August 29, a his home, the bearers, his near neighbors, were: John H. Neldon, George B. Titman, Frank Durling, William Campbell, Saul Hineline, George Williams. Interment in the Branchville cemetery.
