Aug 3 - Merritt Bunnell
Merritt Bunnell, oldest of Harve and May Bunnell's children, was born Aug 3, 1887. He died Dec 1, 1900 and was buried at the Johnsonville Cemetery. This portrait of Merritt hung in the Bunnell's front room for many years after his death. Merritt, like my grandfather, had very light blond hair, almost white. Granddad's hair darkened when he was a teenager.
