BIOGRAPHICAL: (From Ejvor and Leo Merkley) "At the age of 78 Christopher wrote a short sketch of his life and published it for his descendants. He called his book, BIOGRAPHY OF CHRISTOPHER MERKLEY, SON OF JACOB MARKLE, OR MERKLEY. The first page reads: "I was born in Williamsburg, Dundas County, Upper Canada on December 18th, 1808. Worked on my father's farm until I was fourteen after which I was apprenticed to shoemaking for three years. Served my full time and for some time afterwards worked at my trade. At nineteen I married Sarah Davis, who was born on May 19th, 1810, at La Shute, Lower Canada. She bore me one son, now known as Nelson Merkley. In 1831, I became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and continued a member and class leader in this church until 1837. In that year the sound of everlasting gospel was brought to my hearing by Phineas and Benjamin Wright. It did not take me long to determine what I should do. I soon after embraced the opportunity and was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by Elder John E. Page, on July 27th, 1837...." In the book he relates his experiences in going from Canada to Missouri and then to Illinois. While living near Nauvoo, Illinois he went on several missions for the Church and then, when the Mormons were driven from Illinois, he and his family went west to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake. In chapter 10 he relates an experience that happened at Quincy, Illinois before the people went west. He states he was standing near the Prophet (Joseph Smith) when a man asked him for money to pay back a debt owed....the debt was not the Prophet's but another brother's...The Prophet paid the man four dollars which left him with one dollar. As they walked around, he, (Joseph Smith) found a sister in need of help and so gave her his remaining dollar....Christopher then goes on with his history to say, "I met him...asked if he would like a little money. He said, "Yes, Brother Merkley, I am now on a journey of fifty miles, and I have not a dime in my pocket." I gave him a sovereign. He took me by the hand and blessed me, and he said, "Brother Merkley, may you never want." "I never have."

BURIAL: Old Stone Fort Cemetery, Schoharie, Schoharie Co., NY USA.

IDENTITY: Martha Foland is not certain that this Daniel belongs in this family because as the Cady records say, " came as a tailor from Germany". If so, he is a late comer and is a separate Schaeffer family. But, since there is some doubt as to this description, "tailor from Germany", we are leaving him here for the present time so other researchers will know about him and help us to correctly identify him.
