Much of the Family subseries concerns Merry's first wife, Lorraine, and her family. There is also information about his younger, political scientist brother, Henry, as well as his sister, Katherine. Legal documents relating to his purchase of a home on Lothrop Road in Grosse Pointe Farms are found here. That home was sold when he married Martha Jean Dodenhoff. The subseries contains correspondence, various legal documents, clippings, lists, and notes. Especially interesting is the planning done by Merry for his 80th birthday party.
