Question: My future daughter-in-law was recently informed that she is the great-great-granddaughter of Dan Mercer, who was a potter in Parkersburg around the turn of the 20th century. Very little additional information was provided to her. Her father did show her a couple of pieces of stoneware that were passed down and told her that one of Dan Mercer's pottery wheels is in unnamed museum, but nothing else. It has become quite curious to know more about her great-grandfather. My Internet search has not been very successful except for what you have written about him in The Marietta Times. Would your readers have anything to add, where he might even be buried? - R.V., North Carolina.
