Hello!

I'm looking for information regarding the Mercer family is Bryant's Cove/Upper Island Cove/Harbour Grace/Spaniard's Bay. Specifically, I am looking for information on John Mercer's family. He died on the SS Southern Cross (there were two - I am looking for the one from the Upper Island Cove area) and I am struggling to find info on his family. John Mercer is often connected to an Elijah Mercer and Mary Mercer who had numerous children but according to my grandfather, he only ever heard of John (his grandfather) having a sister named Caroline who was married to Benjamin Strickland. On Ancestry, I found a Mary Caroline married to a Benjamin Strickland in the Elijah and Mary family. However, baptism records show that Mary Caroline was born to Elijah and Elizabeth Mercer but also show a John Mercer being born to Elijah and Mary.

Basically all I know is that John had a sister who he called Caroline and also a father Elijah, as my grandfather owns a picture of a man Elijah who looks extremely similar to John.

I am hoping someone can shed some light on John's parents or other family.
