      Noble Merwin, farmer, P.O. Diamond, was born in Palmyra Township, this county, May 22, 1853, son of Nathaniel R. and Jane (Hitchcock) Merwin, natives of Connecticut. The parents and grandfather, David Merwin, settled on the farm in 1814, purchasing one section of land, a portion of which they lived to clear, and here they passed honored and useful lives. Nathaniel R. Merwin was twice married. By his first wife, nee Mary A. Stilson, two sons were born: George and David. Of the children born to his second marriage four are living: Eliza (wife of L. Thomas), Lucy (wife of R. Whittlesey), Charles A. and Noble. The subject of this sketch was married in Palmyra Township, in 1873, to Helen Brainerd, of Boardman, Mahoning County. Flora M. and Noble H. are the living issue of this union. Mr. Merwin resides on a portion of the homestead farm, consisting of 150 acres. The family is an outgrowth of pioneer stock, and bears the respected and honored characters of worthy and esteemed parents.
