My grand aunt Charlotte A. Raymo (1907-1996) kept an enormous collection of family photographs throughout her life. The collection was started by her mother Margaret A. Merrow (1882-1946)and was lovingly preserved by Charlotte.
These are edited highlights from this treasure trove of Raymo family history.
Margaret Merrow grew up in Detroit. Her father, Joseph D. Merrow, was a tug boat captain on the Great Lakes. He retired from that profession in 1894 and moved his family to Swift's Corner, north of Wayne. There, Joseph ran a general store and was a postmaster. It was there, presumably, that Margaret met Arthur.
