About Esechias Merlet

Ben notes: There are two entries for this person on the Mellott-Eastman family tree. Given that the information came from an LDS source, it is likely that this was a data entry mistake, as the two children with similar names are registered as being born 10 days apart. The original baptismal record is listed on the father's page in the Mellott-Eastman tree.
