About Maj. Carroll Mercer

Military Service: 1 Lt U.S. Marine Corps; Maj. U.S. Volunteers (U.S. Army in Spanish-American War) http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=49259636

Carroll Mercer (1857–1917) was a member of Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War. He married Minnie Mercer (1863–1947), an independent woman of Bohemian tastes. Though they were both from wealthy, well-connected families, the Mercer's lost their fortune through the Panic of 1893 and their lavish spending. The pair separated and Carroll became an alcoholic. Minnie then raised their two girls alone.
