MUSIC AND THE MERCKS Joseph and Catherine Merck were known to love singing, and to sing together in the evening and sing with their children. Felix and Mary Merck also sang with their children. Felix' son John played the accordian as did son Bill, who had the Bill Merck Band with his sons for many years. Melvin Merck played the accordian. John Merck and his daughter Regina played the accordian. Jack Merck played the violin. No doubt there are others not mentioned here.
