Merklees in the Civil War


Three Merklee men are known to have served in the Union army during the American Civil War, and four sisters -- Amanda, Anna, Adeline and Clara Merklee of Philadelphia -- volunteered as nurses at Philadelphia's Cherry Street hospital. Amanda also documented in diaries and ledgers both the war and her efforts to support the Union cause.

This portion of Merklee Genealogy documents their service. Please use the links at left to view the individual pages. Any additional information is always appreciated.
