My great-great grandfather(Professor D. W. Roberts) on my grandmother's paternal side lived in Bevier, Missouri in the 1870's. He had about six or eight children. I did know my great-aunt Jenny Dickson(his youngest daughter. She was born in 1875 in Bevier, Missouri. My great-grandfather W.D. Roberts was born in Bevier also, I think but am not positive of this, yet. They were in Mahaska County, Iowa by sometime in the 1880's. Professor D. W. Roberts directed many of the Welsh Eisteddfod choirs in Mahaska County, Iowa. By 1903 he was in Polk County, Iowa and died there in 1908.On the Thomas side, I had a great uncle(Morgan G. Thomas) who was a State Mine Inspector for the Consolidated Coal Company, I believe. He died in 1899 in Des Moines, Iowa but is buried in Oskaloosa, Iowa. According to his obituary the flags were flown at half staff when he crossed the Golden Shore into the other land. I don't know too much about my Thomas side, though. Wish I did. I'll find out more as I continue to rego through my genealogy and stretch out some, too.Nancy

I may be wrong but, I think I actually had a bottle of Merlyn on the shelf at a rather nice hotel I used to bartend etc. for. I don't recall ever selling any though. If memory serves, it was a little restrictive pricewise even for that high dollar establishment. Most likely due to it's imported status. I will be looking. When I look I find. Funny how that works isn't it? I am about to sign off though. I worked from 11pm last night to 9am this morning and have only managed a very short nap this afternoon. I am nearly comatose. I look forward to talking with you and the rest of the gang here again soon.
