Frank Merriam, Adventurer in Brazil
« on: May 08, 2019, 03:49:09 AM »

Locke descendant Frank Merriam left home at age 16 and joined the Brazilian Army, was sent to fight in the Paraguayan War of 1864-1870, and was never heard from again.
He may have felt he had missed the Civil War by being born too late. Frank will be included in the next volume of the Locke genealogy that is in progress now.
