Merrick/Merritt of Wilmington, North Carolina

I am looking for the family of Lavenia/Luvenia Merrick, born around 1830 in Wilmington. She married Joseph Rhone/Roan from the British West Indies. There is a Joe Roan living with Margaret (Merrick) on the 1860 Census; Margaret was born around 1800. The head of the household is David Joistly with his wife Anna & children. In the 1870 Census, Margaret Merrick is residing with David & Anna Joshling and in 1880 Margaret is listed as Maggie Murick living with her grandchildren with the surname Joselyn. Lavenia is my great/great grandmother and her daughter Margaret, born around 1860, is my great grandmother. Lavinia Roan is listed in the 1870 Census with her children. Also living with her is Caleb Merrick, age 22, occupation, cooper. Luvenia Merrick and Joseph Rhone are listed as parents on the death certificate of her son Edwin Rhone. I appreciate any assistance and thank you in advance for any information. Happy Spring
