C. C. Merrill Shoe Store

    The newspaper ad from The Cornucopia of 1871 shows that shoemaker Charles C. Merrill (1831-1876) had been in the Huntress Block, but then moved into the new brick block in 1872. His son, Benjamin (1855-1930), became a shoemaker also, according to Vital Records of Berwick, South Berwick and North Berwick, and so was perhaps in business with him.
