Eugenia May Hamlin Merrill was born December 2, 1865 and was the daughter of Henry Hamlin and his wife Hannah L. McCoy Hamlin. Henry Hamlin founded the Hamlin Bank & Trust Company, was president of the First National Bank of Port Allegany Railroad Company, the Logan, Newark and other gas companies, the Fulton and Phoenix Gas Company of New York State, the Conklin Wagon Company of Olean, and the Great Southern Lumber Company. He was president of the Buckeye Gas Company of Cincinnati, and a trustee of the Fidelity Trust & Guarantee Company of Buffalo and the Minona Mining Company of Colorado. Eugenia May Hamlin was also the wife of Howard E. Merrill, a leading nurseryman of Geneva, New York. From what I can find Eugenia May died sometime in 1944.
