Recently I learned of the Bible Records kept by Mallory H. Myers
I am rewriting the website and will be updating and making changes. Until then
and the page completion double check everything. Yes I know it will not show
complete information but everything that is here appears to be correct but not
as complete or fully documented as I would like. Updates will be forthcoming.


1st Generation: In North America

Based on the Generations presented by the Myers Association in 1955.   Maybe not as Josiah appears to possibly to be the son of Josiah b 1717). Several of the old family references cite Josiah born 1717 in Holland. Their appears that to be a Josiah born 1717 and another Josiah born 1757. From what I have seen appears as if the two people have been combined as one in the 1955 publishings.

I do not have adequate proofs but appears that Moses Myers of Austorlitz, New York is a brother to Josiah Myers.

The pension application of Lydia Mudge Myers Granger is supported by Moses Myers who was born June 14, 1759 in Old Stockbridge, Berkshire County Massachusetts and lived in Canaan, Columbia Co., New York who was present at the wedding of Lydia and Josiah and served the same times and in the same units as Josiah. From Moses Myers's pension record it would be that Josiah born in 1757 is his brother and possibly the Josiah born in Holland in 1717 might be the father. After the Myers Association publishings of 1955 there appears to have been no further research and no later references are seen for Josiah born 1717 Holland.

In the documentation on Josiah Myers born 1757 there is no mention of his service in Connecticut as a corporal in Capt. Joel Dickinson's company, Col. Samuel Elmore's Connecticut regiment which is cited in DAR records. Could his be his father or another Josiah Myers?


Josiah Myers b 1717
	Josiah Myers b 1757
	Moses Myers b 14 June 1759, Old Stockbridge, Berskhire County Massachusetts

Van Buren County Lookups from: BEberh5501@aol.com Barbara Eberhart 18114 Buckingham Beverly Hills, Michigan 48009. Myers in the Van Buren Co. Michigan Pg. 449- under the Township of Bloomingdale. the first township meeting, there were 17 votes. officers elected- Mallory H. Myers as Supervisor. Mallory H. Myers as a highway commissioner. William H. H. Myers as school inspector and as justice of the peace. (Harviland Thayer was elected as an assessor) FIRST SETTLEMENTS AND SETTLERS. During the bleak, cold days of December, 1837, the first settlement was made within the limits of this township by the four Myers brothers- Mallory H., William H. H., Reuben J, and Merlin M., accompanied by their mother and sister, Sarah O. and Ruth Ann Myers. These first settlers of the township were from Oneida county, New York. In the spring of 1836 two of the brothers, Mallory and William H. H.. started out on foot and walked the entire distance from Genesee county, New York, via Canada, to Michigan. For six months Mallory worked in Monroe County and William at White Pigeon. The latter then returned to New York and brought the rest of the family to White Pigeon where they were all reunited. The next year they decided to locate permanently on section thirty-six, the extreme southeastern corner of the township of Bloomingdale. They procured the services of Ashbel Herron to bring them to their new location, with his ox team, arriving at their future home on the 22nd day of December, 1837, no other shelter awaited them than that afforded by the tall monarchs of the forest. The frozen earth, after the snow had been melted away by a roaring fire, afforded them a resting place the first night. The next day a rude cabin was built, which was soon after followed by a substantial log house, and thus was commenced the first settlement of this township, now one of the best in the entire county of Van Buren. During the next year the first schoolhouse was erected, William H. H. Myers becoming the first teacher in 1838 and 1839. During the year of 1838 Ashbel Herron, a native of Cayuga county, New York, and Daniel G Robinson from Ohio, settled near the Myers location, and Joseph Peck, from Monroe county, New York. located on section six, in the extreme northwestern corner of the township. This locality was known for years as "Pecktown" The first marriage celebrated in the township was that of James Scott of Decatur and Ruth Ann Myers. Mr. Howard states that this marriage was solemnized by Elder Warner, but in this he must have been in error as the official record states that the wedding took place on the 11 th day of April, 1839, and that the party officiating was Ashbel Herron, Esq. ---- page 450. a Harviland Thayer, a native of Hampshire, settled in this township in 1840. persons whose names appear on the assessment roll as resident tax payers, during the year the township was organized- William H. Myers, Harviland Thayer, Mallory Myers, Levi Thayer, and others. pg. 621- under Township of Waverly The Myers Family Settlements were made within the present boundaries of Waverly at about the time the county of Van Buren was organized. In the fall of 1836 four brothers, Mallory H., Merlin M., Reuben J. and William H. H. Myers, with their mother and two sisters, came from Genesee county, New York, to White Pigeon, Michigan. The next spring three of the brothers came to Van Buren county on a prospecting tour. They found lands in the township of Clinch that suited them and determined to make that their future home. Reuben selected a tract on section two in the present township of Waverly, while the other brothers located north of him in what subsequently became the township of Bloomingdale. The entire family came on from White Pigeon and for a time lived together in a cabin erected by Mallory on his new location.. Reuben immediately began clearing up his place, and in 1838 built a substantial log house and moved into it with Ruth Ann, one of his sisters, as his house keeper. This arrangement, however was short lived, for Miss Myers, in 1839, married James Scott, a "shingle weaver" who had been employed in the vicinity. This marriage, which was solemnized by Asbel Herron, a justice of the peace, was the first marriage of a resident of the township, and in this case, only the bride lived in Waverly, the groom being a resident of Decatur. While Rueben and his sister were living together, they were the only white persons in the township, when Miss Myers became Mrs. Scott and removed into another locality, Reuben was left solitary and alone, although he had neighbors in the adjoining townships of Alemna and Bloomingdale, both being at that time part of the township of Clinch. Soon afterward, Merlin Myers changed his residence from Bloomingdale to Waverly. He located on section one, not far from Reuben, where he lived until 1857, when he moved to Illinois. Rueben remained a inhabitant of Waverly until his death, which occurred November 14, 1890, in his seventy- second year. Another of the early settlers was William Murch, a young man who came from the Empire state. He made an entry on section two in 1839, but did not become a resident of Waverly until the following year, when he married Miss Sarah, the other of the Myers sisters. This was the first wedding in which the contracting parties were both numbered among the pioneers of the township. It took place at the residence of Mallory H. Myers in the adjoining township of Bloomingdale (although it was called Clinch at the time) and Elder Junia Warner was the officiating clergyman. (other early settlers- T. W. Thayer.) pg. 625- From the official records. Served as supervisors- Mallory H Myers, William H. H. Myers, Rueben J. Myers, 1845 taxpayers- Merlin M Myers, Rueben J Myers, etc. (children went to the school in Bloomingdale taught by William Myers, first teacher. Second teacher was Miss Sarah Myers. ----------------------------------------------------- This is it so far for the Myers, I will go look now for your other surnames. Barb Van Buren County Lookups from: BEberh5501@aol.com Barbara Eberhart 18114 Buckingham Beverly Hills, Michigan 48009. --------------------------- The Messenger South Haven, Michigan May 2, 1884 Hartford Items And Tuesday night the County House and the building east of it burned and fifteen of the inmates perished in the flames. Your correspondent was on the gound Wednesday morning, but nothing definite could be learned as to the cause of the fire. This will probably never be know or the amount of loss. Insured for $10,000. Mr. Holmes was there looking after the saved and helpless paupers. --------------------------- The Messenger South Haven, Michigan May 9, 1884 The following is a complete list of the victims burned in the poor house last week. their age, and the towns to which they are accredited: James Baker, 50, Waverly James Johnson, 84, Bangor Benjamin Begardus, 53, Columbia Fred Elkenburger, 18, Decatur Caroline Shearer, 40, South Haven Peter Golden, 56, Harford Josiah Myers, 85, bloomingdale Caroline Lang, 30, Covert Reuben Sargent, 74, Antwerp Elizabeth Curtis, 52, Columbia Debora Gravatt, 64, Bangor Thomas Sawyer, 70, Kal. Asylum Lovinia Bangor, age unknown, and her daughter Anna, aged 10 The bodies were reduced to ashes nothing but crumbling bones being taken from the ashes and in the case of one body, which the trunk alone remained. -------------------------- The Sentinal South Haven, Michigan May 3, 1884: One of the most heart-rending scenes ever presented to the people of this county was enacted at the county farm at two o'clock Wednesday morning. At that hour by one of the inmates the county house was discovered to be on fire and in less than an hour it was a mass of smoldering ruins with the bodies of fourteen of our pauper poor engulfed within. From the location of the flames at first it is surmised that an inveterate smoker, Josiah Myers, had arisen from his bed to enjoy an hour with his pipe and from his thoughtlessness the building took fire. The total loss is estimated at $12,000, on which there was an insurance of $5,300. Superintendent Cash and family barely escaped with their lives so rapid were the flames. The building contained thirty five paupers and Superintendents W. W. Hodge and Sam Holmes were thus left with twenty one entirely destitute people with not so much as a shingle to cover them. Their especial fitness for their positions is evidenced in the fact that arrangements were at once made for the care of their charges in the cultural society building at Lawrence and they we already more comfortable than many anticipated they could be. The dispatch announcing the fire was delivered to Will Hodge about half past nine. He immediately harnessed his Ned Allen trotter and before noon was on the farm attending to the wants of the needy, Mr. Holmes having already arrived by train from Paw Paw. A list of the dead are: Henry Baker, liked by everybody and a county charge since before the present farm was purchased. Benjamin Bogardus, aged 46, from Breedsville Elizabeth Curtis, an insane woman. Fred Eckenburger from Decatur, aged 19. Peter Golden of Keeler. Deborah (Debby) Gravatt, of Waverly, aged over 70, was seen trying to get to the room of Caroline Shearer to assist her out, otherwise would have undoubtedly have escaped. James Johnson, an Old sailor 88 years of age from Covert. Caroline Long, aged 40 from Covert Josiah Myers of Geneva, 83 years of age and supposed to have been the unwitting cause of the fire. Father of H. J. Myers and Mrs. S. Hosner of Geneva, Mrs. Charles Thayer of Bloomingdale and Mrs. Milo Baker of Watervliet. The old gentleman was addicted to an excessive use of opium and tobacco and if not watched would smoke his pipe while lying in bed. His children humored his wishes and provided some comfort for him during his life there. Benjamin Reynolds of Columbia, aged 46. Caroline Shearer from Covert, aged 35, as sister of Henry Shearer of this village, one of the kindest and best natured person ever on the farm as an inmate, being very faithful in all instance. Jonathon Sargent, of Waverly, over 70 years old. Thomas Sawyer, an insane colored man recently from Kalamazoo asylum, being cared for here to make room in the asylum for one of our insane. Mrs. Lovina Williams and her eight year old daughter from Bangor, two of her little boys escaping. The husband and father is now in the State house of Corrections for ill treating the wife and children. Supt. Hodge had arranged to send the little ones next week to the State School at Coldwater. Thirteen of the fourteen paupers were burned beyond recognition. Their remains were gathered in one coffin and buried on the county grounds. The board of supervisors have been notified to assemble and will undoubtedly at once take step to provide further for the Necessities of those still living. Sheriff Van Auken was prompt with his duties and is one of the best fitted men for an official that there is in the county. ------------------------------ 1850 Census Bloomingdale Twp., Van Buren Co., Michigan: 16 August 1850 1 1 Harviland Thayer 55 M farmer 400 New Hampshire Betsey Thayer 55 F New Hampshire Charles Thayer 19 M New York Jane Thayer 17 F New York Phil Thayer 13 M Michigan Rhoda A.

Hi. There was a J.L. Myer in Plover in 1847. J.C.Myer belonged to the Old
Settler's Club implying that he came before 1847. The first stage line was
established between Plover and Gill's Landing by Jacob L. Myer.

"The first scheduled stage line in the county may have been established by
Jacob Myer in 1847. It probably followed the old Pinery Road between Plover
and Portage via Grand Rapids. Myer or Myers is also listed in the 1847
territorial census; in 1861 the Plover tax roll reveals that he had a lot
valued at $400 in Block 1 Lot 1, northeast corner of Union and First
Streets, which may have been the main livery barn and office of his stage
line. In the first issue of the Plover Herald published in 1856, Myer ran
an advertisement headed 'Summer Arrangements,' meaning, no doubt, the
schedule of his stages during the summer months. These stages left Steven's
Point daily at 3 a.m., except Thursday, for Portage, arriving at 8 p.m. the
same day.

Two weeks later under local items in the Herald, it is learned that Myer had
begun using a new set of coaches on the Weyauwega run which is a
desirable change from the old Prairie Schooner that was used during the days
of pioneer staging. The editors of the Herald wished Mr. Myer well and
referred to him as the oldest stager of the Northwest. From this it would
appear that up to 1856, the so-called stages to Portage County were wagons
converted into prairie schooners, that is, with canvas over the box, and, in
making the change to a new set of coaches, Myer had converted to the type
commonly associated with the stagecoach still seen in motion picture dramas
of the American West. Early engravings of the type of stage used on other
Wisconsin lines confirms this.

At the height of operations before the Wisconsin Central reached Stevens
Point, Myer reputedly employed 150 horses at various points and changed
horses on his stages every ten miles or so. Most of the horses were
probably Morgans raised on a farm he owned in Sec. 20 of Buena Vista. As
there were no fences on the Prairie to speak of, his horses, according to
local legend, roamed at will, and the neighbors were kept busy sending the
dogs after them."

Paid taxes in 1857 in Buena Vista.

That appears to be about it. Good luck. Joanne

You came to the right place to find missing MYERS. I have a passel of them
for you. Hope you have a lot of paper in your printer. And have a ball.
Sure wish I had found info for me that I found for you.

I found MYERS in the four cemeteries you asked for and in one other besides.
So I will give them all to you. All info found on the headstones will be
given to you and there will me some maiden names that I have found, that
will be in [brackets]. I will be giving you information on some of the
emblems that are in the cemeteries also and those will be at the end of the
cemeteries.

I also inherited some pages to the Portage County only--WI Pre-1907 indexes
to births, marriages and deaths that I checked for you. These are at the end
of the cemeteries. Remember, prople were not REQUIRED to register births,
deaths and marriages until 1907, so not all persons or surnames are there.
But I found what I could.

Also, you have to go to the Portage County site for UW Stevens Point and
check out the obituaries for Myers. Go to
      http://library.uwsp.edu/Obits/
and put in the surname MYERS. There are
many pages of MYERS obits, that you can request to have copied, 5 at a time.
There is one for Jacob L, sons Celwin C (5), Theodore; on the cemeteries,
there are 6 obits for Albert, an obit for Alonzo and his wife Frances, one
for Anna L MYERS EPRIGHT--she died in 1992. There would be a wealth of
family info for you there. Be sure you check out the discussion I have with
you at the end of the marriages concerning a possible name change, and the
finding of a couple of obits that may help out.

Let me know if I can help you with other Portage County surnames and good
luck with your research.

Here are the answers to the [see below] from above.

FLT:
Independent Order of the Odd Fellows are also known as "The
Three Link Fraternity" which stands for Friendship, Love and Truth.
So they were a member of the IOOF.
**********************************
GAR:
The Grand Army of the Republic was formed as a social and political force in
1864, shortly after the end of the Civil War. Its membership was confined to
those who had served in the federal military (Army, Navy, Marine Corp or
Revenue Cutter Service) during the Civil War. Although it remained a force
in American Political and social life for almost six decades, the
requirement that members be Civil War veterans meant that the GAR as
organized would at some point run out of eligible members.

Fortunately, other organizations have stepped forward to accept the mantle
of the GAR. Perhaps the most well known is the Sons of Union Veterans of the
Civil War. Originally named the Sons of Veterans of the United States of
America (organized in 1881), the SUVCW is open to males who can prove that
one or more of their ancestors was a member of the GAR, or was eligible for
GAR membership.

GAR documents may be found in several state archives, and some records may
stuill be in the custody of state chapters of the SUVCW. In addition, there
are hundreds of files of data on the GAR in the possession of the US
Military History Institute, 22 Ashburn Drive, Carlisle Barracks, Carlisle,
PA 17013
*****************************

14th WI Volunteer Infantry:

The Fourteenth Infantry Regiment was organized at Fond du Lac, WI, and
mustered into the service of the United States on January 30, 1862. It left
the state on March 8 and reported to General Grant at Savannah, TN, March
28, 1862 where it encamped. On the 6th it moved to Pittsburg Landing. On the
7th of April the Fourteenth was engaged in the conflict there, now generally
known as the Battle of Shiloh. After the battle, the Fourteenth remained at
Pittsburg Landing as provost guard, participating in numerous expeditions
against the enemy, and in the battle of Corinth October 3-4, 1862.

In November 1862 the Fourteenth joined the forces concentrating at Grand
Junction, TN. for an advance on Vicksburg. After the Confederates'
destruction of the army stores collected at Holly Springs the Fourteenth,
with other forces, participated in several expeditions in S.W. TN, moving to
Memphis January 13, 1863. On the 17th it embarked down the River to join the
force operating against Vicksburg. On the 13th of May it crossed the river
below Vicksburg and participated in the movements of the Union forces, and
on the 19th took position in the trenches in the rear of Vicksburg and
continued to take part in the siege of that place until July 4, when the
Confederates surrendered. On the 14th of July it accompanied Ransom's
Brigade, participated in the capture of Natchez, MS and remained there until
October, when the regiment returned to Vicksburg.

In March 1864, the Fourteenth joined the forces assigned to the Red River
Expedition, March 10-May 22, 1864, and participated in numerous minor
engagements in which that command was engaged. In July following was a part
of the forces accompanying the expedition to Tupelo, MS, July 5-21, 1864,
and participated in the engagements July 13, 14 and 15th. After the return
from that district it was assigned to active service in northern Arkansas.
In November 1864 the regiment was transferred to Nashville, TN, which was
reached November 30, and took part in the battle of Nashville, December
15-16, 1864.

After that battle the Fourteenth was engaged in the pursuit of the
Confederates until the latter part of January, 1865, when the Regiment was
transferred to New Orleans and assigned to a position in the Sixteenth Army
Corps. With this force it took part in the Mobile Campaign, March 17-May 4,
1865, and the investment and capture of Spanish Fort March 27-April 8, 1865.
Co. E. and members of other companies became detached from the regiment in
March 1864 and attached to Leggett's division of the 17 Army Corps, and with
this organization participated in the Atlanta, Savannah and Carolinas
campaigns and the Grand Review in Washington, D.C., May 24, 1865, rejoining
the regiment in Alabama, July 16, 1865. Thereafter the Fourteenth performed
guard duty in Alabama until October 1865. It was mustered out and reached
Madison, WI, October 22, 1865 where it was discharged from the military
service.

******************************

RNA:
Royal Neighbors of America--A Fraternal Life Insurance Society,
chartered in 1895, dedicated to providing insurance benefits, fraternalism
and volunteer opportunities for all Americans through women and their
families.
RNA was a result of the wives of the Modern Woodmen of America's (MWA)
yearning for their "own" social group. In 1888 the first invitation was
sent to a Council Bluffs, IA newspaper for "The wives of all Modern
Woodmen in the city to meet at their hall to plan a social to be held in the
near future." They briefly formed an auxiliary to the Modern Woodmen
camp in that area. A year later the ladies renamed their society the Royal
Neighbors of America. Back then, Woodmen would only insure men.
Now of course it's not that way and the grave markers can be put on any
RNA members grave.

There is an interesting happening in Greenwood cemetery concerning what I
think to be this couple.
Section II:
Row 8 to the north:
EEN:
Zylpha A 14Sep1833--9Mar1901
in my notes it says her maiden name was Zylpha Anna LORMIER
Section III:
Row 4 to the south: (buried with 6 or so other EEN's)
Carl A 25Oct1834--3Mar1905
Are these two couples the same couple? Was the name LORMIER changed to
MYERS in the early 1800's?
The question comes from the cemetery lists on the LDS film 1306431, item
number 1--Belmont Township Cemeteries. It has Greenwood and St James
Cemetery on it, along with the index to obituaries. There may be an
obituary on there for Zylpha Anna or Carl A EEN and that is where I got the
name LORMIER.

I went back to UW Stevens Point Obits and put EEN in for a search and it
took a while, but going to next page over and over I finally got to page
9/40 and I found there is an obit for C A EEN, 2 for Charles and one for
Mrs C A, Zilpha Myers. I sure wish I was in your shoes and could find out
so much.

Sudden Death of Jacob L. Myers.

      In the death of Jacob L. Myers, which occurred at his home in the town of Buena Vista on Wednesday, Portage County loses another of its study pioneers. In conversation with one of his neighbors, we learn that he went out into the field for a short time to bind, and not long afterwards was found lying on the ground dead, with a bundle of grain across his face, and a band in his hand. It is not known whether he died of apoplexy or sun stroke. The funeral was held from the M. E. Church at Liberty Corners on Friday.
      The deceased moved here from Illinois about May, 1847, and for a time lived at De Bay's place, up the river, afterwards removing to Plover, where he lived several years. When the Indian lands came into market, he took up a homestead on Buena Vista creek, where he lived until his death. In 1860 or 1861 he was engaged in the staging business, and operated three lines—one from here to Portage, one to Berlin, and one to Gill's landing, and worked 100 horses. He was a man of great energy and push and was well liked among the pinery boys in those early days when a good team the fastest locomotion, and no one knew hoe to pick them out better than "Uncle Jake."       The deceased, who was in his 74th year, leaves a wife and four sons to mourn his loss.

DOWN TO DEATH
A fall of Eighty Feet, and
Four Men Meet Instant
Death—The Fifth Man
on the Road to Re-
covery.

      One of the most deplorable of accidents, and accompanied by the greatest loss of life of any ever witnessed in this city, occurred at the Water Works stand-pipe at about ten o'clock on Friday forenoon last. At that hour ten men, Chas. Myers, Albert S. Albus, Harry Sills, John Ellsworth, Edward Lawrence, John Rose, John Smith, Frank Davitt. Wm. Cooney and Thos. Sugan, were at work upon a staging or scaffolding, on the inside of the pipe, 80 and 85 feet respectively above the stone foundation. The stand-pipe is made in sections of five feet each, and the finishing touches upon the eighteenth section, ninety feet from the ground were being made by Lawrence, while the other men mentioned above were engaged in making an addition of ten feet to the scaffolding. Some of them were standing upon saw-horses, across which planks were laid, five feet above the others, and all were holding or nailing the standards, cross pieces, etc., that went to make up the elevation. Suddenly and without the slightest warning, one side of the scaffolding gave way with a terrible crash, and down went five men, four of them to meet death in their descent or when they reached the stone floor beneath, while the fifth received frightful injuries, but escaped death by falling on top of the more unfortunate companions. His name is Edward Lawrence. Others engaged about the works were Lyman Rowe, Frank Shea, John Murphy, Fred. Higgins and Wm. Cules, besides the foreman, Jas. S. N. Dean. Cules was unwell in the morning and had gone home, and Mr. Dean was in he bottom of the shaft, engaged about some work. Hearing the noise above him and instantly comprehending what had happened, Dean plunged through the manhole, but not a moment too soon, tearing a part of his coat in shreds, and barely escaping with his life. The others were engaged on the outside.

      John Rowe, Cooney, Davitt, Sugan and Smith, who were at the top of the scaffolding, had most narrow escapes, none more so than Smith, who was standing or kneeling almost upon the part that fell, engaged in nailing a studding, and saved his life by a rapid retreat to the side that remained firm. Rowe jumped to the rim of the pipe, and reaching down caught Cooney just in time, no doubt, to save him. These young men then descended to the ground on the outside ladder, and the work of carrying out the dead and injured was commenced by all present. Lawrence was found in an unconscious state, but revived somewhat on being carried out in the air, and was afterwards removed to his boarding house at John Corrion's where he is doing well at present, with every prospect for complete recovery. He received a terrible gash on the forehead, his neck and jaws were also injured, but none of the bones in his body were broken. How he escaped so fortunately, after falling eighty feet, in indeed the wonder of all. Nearly every physician in the city was present within a few minutes after the accident and rendered all possible aid. The other four men, Albus, Myers, Sills and Ellsworth, were dead when they were taken out, death no doubt being instantaneous, as all their necks were broken. Ellsworth was terribly mangled otherwise, his left leg being broken in two places, the hand being crushed, as well as the side and top of his head. Two forges each weighting about two hundred pounds, had fallen with the scaffolding, and the leg of one of these had passed through his side. Sills' face and head were also badly cut, but the visible marks upon the other were slight.

      Soon after the accident the bodies of the four men were removed to Grant's undertaking rooms, on Brown street, where as rapidly as possible all were prepared for burial by C. H. Grant and some assistants. In the afternoon the body of Chas. Myers was taken to his home on Brown street, the home now made desolate by his untimely death, and on Sunday forenoon it was taken to the town of Buena Vista for burial. The body of Harry Sills was taken to Oasis, Waushara County, on Saturday afternoon and buried the following afternoon, and the body of Albert Albus was embalmed and forwarded by express to his home at Phillipsburg, N.J., as per request of his parents. Where the parents or relatives of poor John Ellsworth reside, no one seems to know, and his remains were quietly laid to rest in the Episcopal cemetery on Monday afternoon, Rev. Walter R. Frame officiating, and were followed to their last resting place by his sorrowing companions and a few acquaintances. The home of Edward Lawrence is at Rockford, Ill, and he has sisters, now here caring for his wants.
      As before stated, the accident was the most terrible of any that every happened in this city, but the true cause of it is not definitely known. Some of the workmen and others believe that it was a plank upon and over which the men were standing that gave away, while others are of the opinion that a standard was pulled out of place in the work, but that the construction was or became "faulty," as stated by the jury is none the less true.
      At noon on Friday a coroner's jury consisting of M. T. Olin, I. M. Moss, Peter Walling, Chas. Packard, E. M. Copps and A. O. Packard, were summoned together by District Attorney Lamoreux before Justice of the Peace Eaton, who after viewing the remains and visiting the place where the accident occurred adjourned to meet at the court house at 9 o'clock on Saturday morning, when testimony was taken, the following of which is a brief synopsis. J. O. Baymond was present as attorney for the stand-pipe contractors and D. Lloyd Jones to represent the Water Works Company.

THE TESTIMONY

      Jas. S. Dean, foreman in the construction of the standpipe was the first witness sworn,. He stated that his home is a Phillipsburg, N. J., and that he had been here since Oct. 16th last. That the firm he represents is doing the work by contract with the Water Works Co. Gave names of men killed and injured. Albus came here with me, Ellsworth went to work Nov. 3d, Sills had been at work about two weeks and Meyer was hired the previous afternoon. They were engaged in erecting a scaffold at the time of the accident, which was in charge of Albert Albus. Have had 4-1/2 years experience in erecting scaffold, and have had charge since Sept. 1887. This was the first trouble I had on this pipe. The first intimation of the accident, something struck me on the back; I thought it was coal and looking up every thing was black; I had a pretty clear realization of what was coming and jumped through the manhole. All was then still. I soon climbed the ladder, and saw the bodies lying at the bottom, and helped to take them out. The cause of accident, in my opinion, was that the men misplaced one of the posts in erecting the scaffold, and that it was improperly nailed. This work was in my charge, and Albus had charge when I was not present. The best quality of timber and plank was used. One 4x4 post gave way and a two inch plank, one-sixth of the staging. Gave a description of manner of construction and material used.
      Dr. Rood sworn, testified that four of the men were dead when he arrived at place of accident, and no further examination of bodies were made except as to ascertain that men were dead.
      Frank Shea testified to being employed on the standpipe, a part of the time in the carriage at the top. I was own below at the time of the accident, on the outside. My first knowledge of the accident was in hearing coal and plank falling. I was hired by Albert Albus and paid by Mr. Dean.
      John Rose stated that he was employed by Mr. Dean to work on the inside in striking rivets. Was on the scaffold at the time of the accident, and save myself by reaching up and catching top of the pipe. First knowledge was in hearing a crash of a horse on which Meyers was standing. Heard no talk at anytime about the safety of the staging.
      Thos. Sugan statee that he had been employed twenty months erecting standpipes for Tibbitt & Woods. Was employed heating rivets. Was near the middle of the scaffold at the time of the accident, and I jumped to the top of the sheet. Think Meyers and Albus were on top of trusses at time of crash. Considered staging perfectly safe, judging from other staging I have seen.
      John R. Smith, also a resident of Phillipsburg, has been employed at the same kind of work for about fourteen months. Was nailing a post on staging at time of accident, and Meyers was holding the same, five feet above. Do not know what caused the accident. Retreated when I heard crash and saved myself. Considered this scaffolding perfectly safe. Have seen one inch boards where we used two inch plank here, but it was a different kind of scaffold.
      Frank Davitt, also of Phillipsburg, N. J. Have been at work as rivet heater and corker for about three years. Was toe-nailing bottom of posts at the time of the accident. The truss dropped to the solid scaffold. First I knew of accident saw men falling, and I was on opposite side. Everything appeared to be firm and solid.
      Wm. Cooney is from the same town in New Jersey, and had been employed by Tibbitt & Wood for about five years. Have assisted in putting up thirteen or fourteen standpipes. This was the first staging of the kind that I had been on. Heard noise and started to run, and as the trusses gave way, I sent down, going as far as the solid part of the scaffold.
      Lyman Rowe, of this city, was engaged in hoisting scaffolding on Friday morning, and had sent up some planks ten or fifteen minutes before the accident.
      Harry DeB. Parsons, engineer for the Water Works Co.: Have had five years experience as consulting engineer, previous to which I studied for six years, attending two different colleges. Had examined the scaffold every two or four days and considered it perfectly safe, and also the material used. That scaffold had ought to carry from six and one-half to seven tons, and a two inch plank, twelve inches wide, should hold about one thousand pounds at the center. Mr. Parsons stated the relations of the standpipe contractors to the water works company, and that the latter had nothing to do with the erection of the pipe.
      After listening to the testimony, the jury rendered their verdict, the substance of which is as follows:
      Came to their death from a fall from near the top of the stand-pipe, a distance of about eighty feet, to the stone foundation below, at the city of Stevens Point, Wis., on the 14th day of December, 1888, and that said fall was caused by the scaffolding or staging giving away. And we further give and find it is our opinion that said staging or scaffolding was faulty in construction for the purposes used and intended.

THE VICTIMS

      John Ellsworth was about 22 years of age, and had been employed upon the standpipe about two weeks, coming here from Watertown, D.T., where he was engaged in a like occupation. He was an industrious, hard-working young man, well liked by his companions. His home is unknown.
      Albert S. Albus was about 21 years of age, and was of German descent. His parents reside at Phillipsburg, N. J., where he also has brothers and sisters. He had followed the avocation in which he died about five years, and had warm friends in Mr. Dean and the other young men, Smith, Davitt, Cooney and Sugan, who came from the same place, and all of the speak of him in the highest terms.
      Harry Sills was born at Murray, Canada West, and was 21 years of age on the 18th of last August. His parents removed to New York State in 1872, to Chicago in 1879, and to Oasis, Waushara county, in 1884, where they resided until recently, when they returned to Chicago. Harry, an industrious, honorable youngman, was the oldest in the family of four sisters and four brothers, and two weeks before his death determined to come to Steven Point and seek work. He had been employed on the stand-pipe just one week, and was boarding with his cousin, Mrs. Wm. Berry, in this city. His father came up on Saturday morning and took charge of the remains, taking them to Oasis for burial, where they were interred Sunday.
      Chas. Myers, of this city, leaves a wife and three children, who reside on Brown Street in this city. He was about fifty years of age, and had made this county his home nearly all his life, being a son of the late Jacob Myers of Buena Vista and one of the most honorable, hardworking of men. His death is greatly deplored.

ALBERT MYERS KILLED.
Accident in the Week Planing Mill Results in the Death of an Employee.

      Albert Myers was killed in the planing mill of John Week Lumber Co. at 3:50 Tuesday afternoon.
      Mr. Myers was engaged in taking down a shaft in the mill and is supposed to have been standing or sitting on a timber that supported a shaft and pulley weighing about 800 or 1,000 pounds. He is supposed to have been loosening the nut on a bolt that held up the timber and the shaft and that he twisted the nut and end of the bolt off, permitting the timber on which he rested to fall. He fell to the floor some twelve feet below, and the shaft followed tipping up endwise. It struck the floor and rebounded again a couple of feet and in some way it is supposed to have came down partly upon the unfortunate man's head and crushed his skull quite badly. He never moved.
      The only persons near were Frank Taylor and Ole. Christianson. They were only a few feet away but it happened so suddenly that they scarcely know anything about it. When they heard the crash of falling timbers they looked around bit it was all over. Dr. South wick was called but could do nothing more than examine his wounds. The body was taken to Boston's undertaking room.
      Mr. Myers was about 44 years old and lived with his wife and stepdaughters, Edith and Ora, at 239 Wood street.
      Mrs. Myers was not a home at the time of the accident having gone down to Plover that morning to remain a few days. He was a brother of Lon and Henry Myers of this city and a half brother of Selvin and Theodore Myers who live down in the country.
      A Jury was summoned by the coroner and after viewing the remains at Boston's adjourned until Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock.       The jury is composed of Robert Maine, F. Abb, H. Reading, E. D. Glennon, Wm. McCarr and M. Flifford.


Stevens Point Daily Journal, Wednesday, April 25, 1900:

CORONER'S JURY
Verdict of Accidental Death in the Case of Albert Myers

      The Coroner's jury in the case of Albert Myers, who was killed Tuesday afternoon in the Week planing, took testimony in the court house at 9 o'clock Wednesday, coroner Boston president.
      Dr. F. A. Southwich was the first witness sworn. He said he was called to the mill at 8:50 Wednesday afternoon and found Albert Myers lying dead on the floor. He examined his head and found his skull crushed as if by some very heavy object, the injuries being such as to cause death.
      Stanley Young, bookkeeper for the Coye Furniture Co., said that the foreman o the planing mill came into his office to telephone for the doctor and he accompanied him back to the mill. He found Myers on his back with blood collecting in his mouth. He turned him over to permit the blood to flow freely. The injured man made no sound, not even as of labored breathing. There was no timber or shafting on hi. He was well acquainted with Myers, who was apparently a strong healthy man.
      Frank Taylor, foreman in the mill for the past three years, said the crew was engaged in moving the machinery out of the old mill preparatory to placing it in the new mill on the north side. Myers was engaged in removing a shaft 85 feet long and three inches in diameter which hung 12 feet from the floor. All had been taken down but the last two section of 11 feet each. Myers was engaged in loosening the bolts that held the shaft in place and when the witness last noticed him he was sitting astride the bridge tree. He explained that there were two heavy timbers about eight feet apart running the length of the mill, on either side of the shaft and that at frequent intervals these timbers were connected with another timber at right angles to them. These were bolted to the under side of the two long timbers and are called bridge trees. On top of these timbers at their center were attached the boxings in which the long shaft revolved. He was about 16 feet from Myers when he heard the crash. He looked around and saw the end of the shaft not far from Myer's head. Nothing fell to the floor but Myers and the shafting. The bridge tree loosened only at one end and the bolts at the other end held the timber so that it did not fall to the floor but remained hanging in the air by one end. The body looked to him as if the man had struck on his face first. At tech end of the shaft as a disk shaped coupling nine inches in diameters.
      Louis Gickling, an employee in the mill for the past twelve years was helping to take down the shafting. He was about 16 feet from Myers when he heard the crash. He saw Myers strike the floor head first, but did not see anything strike him, and thought he would have noticed the shaft if it did strike him.
      Ole Christianson, another employee about the mill, was loading timber outside, but in view of the accident. He heard the carat and saw Myers lying face down. There was nothing on top of him.
      A. R. Week, secretary and treasurer of the John Week Lumber company, was called, but could add nothing to what had been given.
      The general impression was, however, that that shaft in some manner caused the man's death. The north end fell first, and the flange or disk coupling made a deep indentation in the floor when it first struck, and another tow feet further north and nearer where Myer's body lay. This shows that there was a tremendous rebound, as the shaft weighting from 800 to 1,000 pounds. After striking the second time the south end of the shaft had reached such a position that it no longer rested against the bridge tree that held that end and it fell to the floor, and no doubt the shaft rolled out of its original position to a considerable extent before anybody noticed it, owning to the fact that a thirty-six inch wheel or pulley was fastened to the shaft near the middle, but slightly toward the south end. Myers own fall count not have produced the injuries he received.
      As to the cause of the accident there is not certainty, but still little doubt. Myers was undoubtedly loosening the nut on the bolt that held up the east end of the bridge tree. The end of the bolt was afterwards found by N. A. Week on the floor of the mill, with the thread of the bolt still unmoved in the nut. The fresh fracture in the bolt showed it to have book made with a twisting motion.
      The jury returned a verdict of accidental death, stating that they believed "the said Albert Myers was killed by being struck on the head with a shaft and coupling."
      The funeral will be held from the Episcopal church at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon, Rev. R. H. Weller officiating.
      The deceased was a member of Eureka Camp No. 1448, of the Modern Woodmen and a special meeting will be held tonight to arrange for the funeral.

After striking the second time the south end of the shaft had reached such a position that it no longer rested against the bridge tree that held that end and it fell to the floor, and no doubt the shaft rolled out of its original position to a considerable extent before anybody noticed it, owning to the fact that a thirty-six inch wheel or pulley was fastened to the shaft near the middle, but slightly toward the south end. Myers own fall count not have produced the injuries he received.
      As to the cause of the accident there is not certainty, but still little doubt. Myers was undoubtedly loosening the nut on the bolt that held up the east end of the bridge tree. The end of the bolt was afterwards found by N. A. Week on the floor of the mill, with the thread of the bolt still unmoved in the nut. The fresh fracture in the bolt showed it to have book made with a twisting motion.
      The jury returned a verdict of accidental death, stating that they believed "the said Albert Myers was killed by being struck on the head with a shaft and coupling."

Death of C.C. Myers
Had Lived in the County More than six Decades

      The death of C. C. Myers, which occurred at his home, in the town of Buena Vista at 5:30 o'clock last Tuesday morning, marked the passing of another of the early settlers of Portage County, Mr. Myers had been in declining health since last fall. While at work on the farm one of his legs was quite severely injured Blood poisoning followed, and although after several weeks, he apparently recovered from this, he never fully regained his health and strength. However, he had been confined to his bed only since the Friday night preceding his death.
      Mrs. Myers was born in Rochester N.Y. June 10, 1835. In 1847 his father, Jacob Myers came to this country settling in Plover, and this had been the home of deceased ever since, and for more than fifty years he lived on the farm where he died. Fifty-one years ago, at Plover, he was married to Miss Melissa Young. The latter died in 1902, and he is survived by two sons, one daughter, and thirteen grandchildren. Also by one brother, Theodore Myers of Amherst, and two half brothers, Alonzo and Henry Myers of this city. The surviving children are Edwin A. Myers and Mrs. George Newby of Buena Vista, and William A. Myers of Racine. Miss Nettie Brown has been a member of his family for the past thirteen years.
      Before taking up farming as a steady occupation, C. C., or "Cell," as he was known by his older friends, and his brother, Theodore, drove stage for their father, Jacob Myers, for about six years. In an early day the latter had the contract for carrying the mail from Stevens Point to Green Bay and Fond du Lac. Mail at that time was carried to and from Green Bay on foot, the man who transported it carrying the mail sack on his back. At the same time the trips to and from Fond du Lac were made in a one hose rig. A few years later Mr. Myers, sr., was one of the best known stage owners in the state. Wausau, Mosinee, Stevens Point, Bills Landing, Berlin, Portage, Kilbourn and Baraboo, were some of the places reached by his various lines. It was on some of these routes that C. C. and Theodore had their experiences as stage Drivers.

      The funeral will be held from the house Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The services will be conduct by Rev. Robert of Almond, interment following in the Buena Vista Cemetery.


Stevens Point Gazette, April 26, 1911:

C. C. MYERS PASSES AWAY
Aged Resident of Buena Vista, Who came
to This County in 1847, Call-
ed to Final Rest.

C. C. Myers of Buena Vista passed away at his farm home in the town of Buena Vista at 5:30 o'clock Tuesday morning, death being due to a general breaking down. During the winter he was laid up some time with blood poisoning in one of his lower limbs, caused by a slight scratch, but there after apparently recovered and was able to be about and visited the city about two weeks ago. Last Friday he was taken to his bed and rapidly failed to the end.       Calvin C. Myers was born at Rochester, N.Y., June 10, 1835, and was nearly 76 years of age. His parents, Mrs. and Mrs. Jacob Myers, came west in the early 40s, first locating in Walworth county, this state, but soon thereafter moved to Belvidere, Ill., where they lived two or three years and then traveled by team to Plover, this county. This was in 1847. The father was the owner of the first stage lines to traverse this section, at one time owning over 200 horses, and his son, Theo. Myers, now a resident of Amherst, drove the first stage that entered Stevens Point. "Cell," as he was familiarly called, also drove stage for several years between this city and Fond du Lac, until their line was bought by other parties. He then made one trip down the river on lumber, then engaged in the grocery and supply business at Plover and when the Indian lands were opened to settlers, he took up a claim in Buena Vista, the place where he passed away yesterday morning, fifteen miles south of this city.
      Mr. Myers was universally respected, being a man of strict integrity and thorough honesty, and the taking away of this worthy and study pioneers will be learned with regret by all. His wife died 8 years ago last November and he is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Geo. Newby of Buena Vista, and two sons Edwin A. of Buena Vista, and Wm. A. of Racine, besides one brother, Theo., of Amherst and two half brothers, Henry and Alonzo Myers of this city, and 13 grandchildren. Miss Nettie Brown, who had been a member of the household for the past 18 years remained his housekeeper after the death of Mrs. Myers.

MYERS - On Sunday, February 24, 1878 a young married woman named MARGARET MYERS (formerly Miss McGraw) died at the residence of her aunt, Mrs. Fahy, on John St., from the effects of poison which she had taken.       She had come to her aunt's house on Saturday afternoon, and, with the remark that that was as good a place to die as any, had lain down on a bed from which she never rose again. She soon sank into a heavy sleep, which continued until the next morning, when her friends became alarmed and sent for Dr. Evans, who found her insensible at 10 o'clock and apparently suffering from the effects of poison. Drs. Lawton and Sutton were also called, but their united efforts proved unavailing. At first she rallied and it was thought she might live, but she afterward sank away and died about four o'clock P.M. Her friends state, as a reason for not earlier calling in medical aid, that they supposed her to be intoxicated, and it was not till morning that they became alarmed. The deceased was only 17 years old, and had already passed nearly two years of unhappy married life, her husband neglecting to provide for her. It is said that she had become discouraged and doubtless committed suicide because she had not resolution to bear up under her troubles. A post mortem examination by Drs. Evans and Sutton revealed traces of morphine. (Rome Citizen, Mar 1, 1878)

Charles H. Myers Delta - Coroner G. N. Lehr of Rome was called here on Friday evening to investigate the circumstances of the death of Charles H. Myers of Lee Center. It was found that death resulted from heart trouble with which Mr. Myers had been affected for about two years. Mr. Myers left his home in Lee Center in the afternoon in company with William Windelspecht, to come to the Ragan farm here for a load of cornstalks.

Selected paragraphs related to Myers:

Settlers in 1852:
      Benjamin Myers came from Frankfort, New York in 1852. His was Catherine Bridenbecker, or Kate, as she was called, smoked a pipe. We used to get water for the school from their well. We could see her in the window, rocking, and puffing away on her clay pipe. She was the only woman I ever saw smoke in those days. The Myers place, lot 54, was bought by George Parish of Ogdensburg, New York on March 26, 1852. The deed was made out to Benjamin, his wife and children, Margaret, Nancy, Rhodette, Felix, William and George. Price was $422.50, paid in part by his father, Charles Myers.
      Felix Myers, or Joe, as he was called, stayed on the place until he died. How well I remember his driving by our house with his team of colts hitched to an open top buggy, “his whip in hand”. His first wife, Mehitable, died and then he married Mary. She died, leaving a small daughter, Libby. It seems strange to see trees and brush where Joe’s tall corn grew.
      . In 1852, Merritt Barnes, who had grown to manhood, bought Ruth Whaley’s place. Ruth went to live with her sister, Sarah Church. (Clinton Whaley, Ruth’s son, had married Nancy Myers, I think.) At any rate, he lived in the woods in front of Nelson Fellow’s place. A woods road or lane went along the Nelson Fellows-Stephen Marshal line fence back into the woods. Nancy Myers married a Whaley, so I think it must have been Clinton. Afterwards, they moved to Amboy Center.

The Schoolhouse is Built 1853:

      In the year 1853 the settlers built the schoolhouse. The old clerk’s book was found a few years ago in Benjamin Brockway’s attic by his grandson, Myron Sutherland. He gave it to me. The book evidently was someone’s account book, as I can see figures on the edges where first pages have been cut out. They used what they had, instead of spending money for a new book. It dates from the first school meeting – “April 10, 1853,” and begins, “My dear friends”: Merritt Barnes, Clerk; Samuel Holmes, Daniel Widrick; Trustees of Benjamin Myers School District No. 16 Town of Vienna”
      I can’t read more of the first page as the cover is missing and paper badly worn. I have copied all of the book. I will give book and copy to you, Roger, as you have bought my father’s stone house that stands where Daniel Miller built the first home. Thus ends the year 1853 with the important fact – we have a school. Benjamin Myers gave the land. It was never deeded to the district. When school closed for the last time, the property reverted to the Myers estate.

      I must tell one more interesting fact about this “necessary”. After serving the needs of the “Schoolhouse” for years and years, it was moved to the Nelson Fellows’ barn and used as a milk house by George and Fred Myers when the bought the Nelson Fellows place. It’s still standing.

Whiskey Island After the War

      George Myers, son of Benjamin and Kate Bridenbecker Myers, married Ella Harris from Panther Lake. He bought the Andrew Washborn place. His son Fred stayed at home helping his father farm and raise strawberries. Ella made butter from their dairy, George selling it in Camden. They made money and when the Nelson Fellows place was for sale, they bought it, remodeled the house and barn, etc., and did big business. Fred should have married. Ella needed help. For some reason the girls said “No.” Some zero night about eight o’clock in the evening, listen – you may hear the music of Fred Myers’ sleighbells coming nearer and nearer, “Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,” then growing fainter and fainter – Fred was going courting.

      It was Ella Myers who used to keep Sunday School going in the Free Methodist Church. Her favorite hymn was “Beulah Land”. I can still hear her high notes. She was a very good woman who came from a fine family.       On my way to Elpis after the mail, I would often stop for a drink of water at the Myers’ home. I admired her charm string of lovely buttons and started my button collection. She loved flowers. A beautiful Seven Sisters rose grew over her front door, and her fushia still blooms in my memory.       Fred is now married to a dear little woman. Ella and George would love her. He has a new home near Utica. All is well with him.

AGED PERSONS OF THE TOWN OF SANGERFIELD.
The town of Sangerfield, Oneida county, N.Y., is situated in the southern part of the county, eighty-eight miles westerly from Albany, on the Cherry Valley turnpike, and seventeen southwest from Utica. Its latitude is north 43 degrees 54’. With an elevation of about 1,375 feet above tide-water and 800 above Utica and the long level on the Erie canal. Its shape is nearly that of a parallelogram, and contains about 18,900 acres. This town was originally known as Township No. Twenty of the twenty townships laid out upon the west side of the Unadilla river. It was surveyed in the summer of 1789, under a law of the Legislature passed February 25, 1789. After its survey, and previous to its settlement, it was simply known to the land speculators of the day as “Township No. 20 of the twenty towns.” It was included in Whitestown, Montgomery county, at the time of the survey, and in 1790 and 1791 was purchased of the State upon speculation, chiefly by Michael Myers, Jedediah Sanger, and John J. Morgan, a considerable portion being subsequently leased in perpetuity. Feb. 16, 1791, upon the formation of Herkimer county, this township was included in that county, and the first step taken towards its settlement in the fall of this year. Sangerfield was in Chenango county upon its formation, by an act passed March 15, 1798, but was annexed to Oneida county, April 4, 1804.




The following individuals were married in the First Religious Society of the "Town of Rome" between 1807 and 1899.

July 30, 2008—  It's been a long time since I communicated with you last about the Myers family history on your website.  I know you've also corresponded with my father, Lawrence Coldren Myers in the past.  I'm writing now to pass along the news that he passed away this past Saturday, July 26, 2008 at age 87.  His health had been failing in recent years, although he still lived at home and got out to play duplicate bridge and attend various family functions.  I ran across some of his corresondence with you while going through some of his papers today, and wanted to let you know of his passing. — Adam Myers.

     Philadelphia, 1880, Bloomingdale township, page 421.  December 1837

     the first settlement in the township was by brothers Mallory H.,

     William H. H., Reuben J., and Merlin M. Myers, accompanied by their

     mother and sisters, Sarah C. and Ruth Ann.  About 1820 the family

     moved to Wolcott, Wayne County, N.Y., but returned in a few years to

    Vienna, Oneida County, N.Y.  The Myers were natives of Oneida County,

    N.Y., where their father died in 1826.  In later years they moved to 

    Bergen, Genesee County, N.Y.  Her the widow's children reached the

    estate of manhood and womanhood before they contemplated removal to

    Michigan.

    In the spring of 1836 Mallory H. and William H. H. started out on

    foot and walked the entire distance from Genesse County, N.Y., via

    Canada, to this state.

    For six months Mallory worked in Monroe County and during the same

    time William worked in White Pigeon.  The latter then returned to

    New York state and brought out with him the remainder of the family.

    all being established at White Pigeon in the fall of 1836.

    One year later they settled permanently on section 36, arriving

    amidst snow and storm and no shelter.  Next day they built a rude 

    cabin, soon followed by a substantial log house, 14 by 33 feet.

    Their nearest neighbors were seven miles distant at Breedsville

    and Paw Paw.  That winter they made slashings preparatory to crops

    and shingles were manufactured for White Pigeon and Paw Paw markets.

    Mallory H. was 23 years old, the first officer in the township of

    Climax, also of Waverly, and in 1845 first supervisor of Bloomin-

    dale.  Later he resided in the village of Borlamont.

    1838-39.  He later became minister of the Free-Will Baptist Church.

    In 1840 his pupils were Andrew, Mary, Nancy, Jan and Harrison

    Herron; Merlin M. Myers, Levi W., Abigail, Charles A. and Jane Thayer.

    Ashbel Herron was Overseer of the Poor.  William H. H. Myers was 

    Justice of the peace.  He died in 1865.

    In the spring of 1838 Ashbel Herron came from Cayuga County, N.Y., 

    and Daniel G. Robinson from Ohio settled near the Myers.

    				Dr. Harry S. Myers

    Hillsdale College,
    153 Hillsdale Street,
    Hillsdale, Michigan.

         Dr. Harry S. Myers has been connected with Hillsdale College

    ever since he entered as a Freshman.  As a student he taught in the 

    Preparatory Department, and in both that department and the College

    after graduation.  As a student he began giving some time to the 

    work among the young people of Free Baptist churches and this was

    extended into other churches. Before graduation he was an officer

    of the national Free Baptist organization and continued that rela-

    tionship until the union of Free Baptists with the Northern Baptist

    Convention.

         This young people's work led him into an international and

    interdenominational group that organized the Missionary Education

    Movement of which he was a Secretary for some years.  He left that

- 13 -




Page 14




    organization to join the staff of the Northern Baptist Convention

    and was Secretary of one of the national groups for several years,

    He organized the visualization department and carried it on to 

    considerable importance.

    He has traveled widely for these organizations and spoken to many

    Groups scattered over the world. He has used both stereopticon slides

    and motion pictures to illustrate his lectures and has prepared many

    such lectures for others to use. In the autumn of 1935 Dr. and Mrs. 

    Myers started around the world. Crossing the pacific they visited Japan,

    China, the Straits Settlement and Burma before reaching India, which 

    was the immediate purpose of the visit. They visited the Baptist 

    missions in India, South India, Bengal-Orissa and Assam, attended the

    centenary celebrations of each, participated in the program and made

    motion picture records of these great gatherings, Mission stations

    were visited, schools, colleges, hospitals and records of the work

    brought home and made available for others.

    In 1938 Dr. Myers headed the request of the President and returned

    to Hillsdale College as Assistant to the President.

    The Midge Memorials were published in 1868 and probably contain errors

    in names and dates. I believe Lydia Mudge in Memorials is the Lydia who 

    married Josiah Myers and not Jacob. The writing of the names Josiah and

    Jacob could have been confused. D.A.R. Lineage Book 92, page 134, states

    Josiah Myers (1759-1797) married Lydia Mudge, born 1759.

    century, He was of Stratford, Conn.; married about 1732/3, Margaret ———.

        John Whelan, the only man of this name who served from a New England

    Colony, but whose rank is not shown served in the Revolutionary War in 

    Capt. Skinner's Company of Militia, for the State of Connecticut, com-

    manded by Col. Johathan Latimer. He was enrolled Aug. 25, 1777, and discharg-

    ed Nov. 8, 1777; served in the Northern Department and was paid Mileage for

    travel home from Red Hook, 120 miles. The place of his enlistment is not 

    shown. Red Hook is in New York, about 22 miles north of Poughkeepsie, and

    according to the scale of my maps there is no place in Conn. which is 120

    miles from Red Hook except the extreme southeast corner. This man served

    in the Northern Department, and the distance from Red Hook to Brandon is

    about 120 miles. There were Whelans, very early, at Stratford, Conn., and 

    a round-about course could have amounted to 120 miles to reach that place,

    but I do not think that return distances were figures that way. These

    people were woodsmen, who took a very direct route.

    Beach — along the wretched roads of the new country. The forest-walled

    highway led him to the hamlets of Rutland, Pittsford, Brandon, and Middle-

    bury, whose fighting men were quickly summoned.: why is it so unlikely that

    our John Whelan was one of these men. I expect that this company, being so

    hastily summoned and organized, may not have had proper records kept, and 

    perhaps it will not be possible to find any proof. When my daughter joined

    the D.A.R., the authorities at Washington took the attitude that since my

    ancestor was from Vermont he would not serve in a Conn., company.

         I believe that John Whelan of Brandon, Vt., was the son John baptized

    in Sept. 1736, at Stratford, Conn., son of John Whelan and his wife Margaret,

    History of Stratford, Conn., by Orcutt, 3: 1324, mentions a John Wheeland

    and wife Margaret; children-Hannah, bapt. Sept, 1734, John bapt. Sept. 1736.

         Vermont Historical Gazetteer, by Hemenway, 3, 440,"John Whelan was one

    of the number who came to town (Brandon) in 1773. He had resided a few years

    in Pittsford; —— He had four sons, Peter, James, John Dan Eli, and one

    daughter, Hannah, who married George Seaton, son of John Seaton who married

    the widow of John Whelan.: (When in Brandon, Vt., in Sept 1945) I visited 

    the graves of these people found in the corner of the old burying ground in

    the village, in the corner nearest the business district. there was no

    marker for John Whelan himself, but James's marker states that he was the

    son of John Whelan; The Seatons are buried in the same lot and have markers.

         John Whelan deeded property in Brandon, apparently for the last time,

    in 1792, June 7. Peter Whelan deeded to James Whelan Apr 2, 1790

         John Whelan of Brandon, Vt., was on a Civil Service during the Revo-

    lutionary War.

         John 2. Whelan and Rebecca Had:

    All of John and Rebecca Whelan's children except James went to Westmoreland

    and Verona, and many of them removed to Michigan.  Verona was originally part

    of Westmoreland, Oneida County, New York.

    In 1821 the Whelans were a numerous family in Whitestown, Oneida County, N.Y.,

    now a part of Utica.

    In the History of Pittsford, Vt., Peter Whelan was from Conn.; we know

    nothing of his ancestry. He married Ruth —— in 1774.

    George Seaton and Hannah Seaton deeded as full heirs of Rebecca Seaton their 

    1/9 interest, April 5, 1817, while living in Verona, N.Y.; and Peter Whelan

    of Verona, N.Y., deeded his 2/9 interest at the same time.

                                        HERRON

   Letter from A. H. Herron, Publisher, Gagetown, Michigan, July 14, 1907;
   Dear Cousin:

   		My great-grandfather Dan the great-grandfather of your mother

   Was —— Herron, who given name I never knew; was a lowland Scotchman.

   He was a widower when he came to this country, his wife having died in Scot-

   land.  He brought three sons, John aged 20, Robert aged 18, and William, 16.

   they arrived about 1760.

   		We are descendants of the son William who was father of eleven

   children, of whom my father was the youngest and your grandfather the next

   older.

   		They were brick and stone masons by trade.  Where of when my

   great-grandfather died I do not know. Grandfather died Whitehall, Washing-

   ton County, New York in 1810.

   		After grandfather's death, grandmother married Col. Van Rensa-

   leer, a Revolutionary officer.  She died 1814.

   		At one time I had a large collection of information of the 

   Herrons obtained from father's old sister Mary who was the last survivor 

   of the family. The records were burned and, before I got around to restore

   then, she died.

   		A. H. Herron married again in 1890. His daughter, Rody, mar-

   ried and lives in Mississippi.  She has three children; lost one 8 month

   old girl April last.

   From Michigan Pioneer and Historical Collections: Vol. 6 page 439:

   Sketch of life and death of Mr. E. A. Thompson was prepared for the Paw

   Paw Northerner by A. H. Herron; Edwin Allen Thompson was born Feb. 2, 1811,

   Verona, Oneida Co., N.Y.; died Jan. 9, 1883, aged 71-11-8, Van Buren Co.,

Leading Citizens of Clinton and Essex Counties, New York. Boston Biographical Review Publishing Company, 1896. Pages 182-183:

John Henry Myers, a native resident of Plattsburg, N.Y., is President of the Iron National Bank of this village and a member of the firm of M.P. Myers & Co., hardware merchants. He was born on August 15, 1834, son of Lawrence and Maria D. Myers. Mr. Myer's paternal grandfather, Joseph Myers, whose father came from Holland, was born in New Jersey. Just prior to the commencement of the Revolutionary struggle he removed to Herkimer, Herkimer County, N.Y., and there spent his remaining days.

Lawrence Myers was born during the residence of his parents in Herkimer. In early manhood he located in Whitehall, engaging in mercantile business with his brother, Peter J. H. Myers. In 1828 he came to Plattsburg and opened a store on the north-west corner of Water and Bridge Streets, putting in a complete stock of general merchandise. He was subsequently engaged in the iron and lumber business on the Saranac River, also continuing in trade until his decease in 1872, after a busy life of seventy-three years. The maiden name of his wife was Maria D. Kirtland. She was a native of Granville, Washington County, N.Y., and was a daughter of John and Lucy (Burbank) Kirtland. Mr. And Mrs. Lawrence Myers were the parents of nine children, two of whom died young, namely; Peter, in infancy; and Maggie when seven years old. Seven grew to mature years - Joseph, Lucy, Lawrence, John H., Michael P., Jared K., and William W.

John H. Myers received a practical education in the days of his youth, finishing his studies at the Plattsburg Academy, and at the age of seventeen years went into a machine-shop to learn the trade, serving an apprenticeship of two and one-half years. He afterward entered the iron works of his father, which were located on the Saranac River, and at the expiration of a year was so well qualified for the business that he was placed in charge of the establishment, which he superintended for twelve years. Mr. Myers was elected President of the Iron National Bank in 1887, and has since given his entire time to the management of this institution.

John H. Myers and Julia R. Lane were married in 1856. Mrs. Myers was born in the city of Troy, N.Y., and is a daughter of Matthew and Maria Lane. The union of Mr. And Mrs. Myers has been blessed by the birth of four children, but one daughter only is now living, Gertrude R.

Mr. Myers is a man of recognized worth as a citizen, his business ability being unquestioned and his character irreproachable. In local affairs he takes a genuine interest, and has served with credit and acceptability in various offices. He has represented Plattsburg on the County Board of Supervisors, is now a member of the Village Board of Education, and has succeeded his father as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Plattsburg Academy. He was the first President of the Clinton County Agricultural Society, serving in that position five years. In politics he has always affiliated with the Republican party, and cast his first Presidential vote for John C. Fremont. He is a man of deep religious convictions, and both he and his wife are members of the Presbyterian Church.

Biographical Sketch of John Henry Myers


Source: Leading Citizens of Clinton and Essex Counties, New York. Boston Biographical Review Publishing Company, 1896. Pages 182-183

John Henry Myers, a native resident of Plattsburg, N.Y., is President of the Iron National Bank of this village and a member of the firm of M.P. Myers & Co., hardware merchants. He was born on August 15, 1834, son of Lawrence and Maria D. Myers. Mr. Myer's paternal grandfather, Joseph Myers, whose father came from Holland, was born in New Jersey. Just prior to the commencement of the Revolutionary struggle he removed to Herkimer, Herkimer County, N.Y., and there spent his remaining days.

Lawrence Myers was born during the residence of his parents in Herkimer. In early manhood he located in Whitehall, engaging in mercantile business with his brother, Peter J. H. Myers. In 1828 he came to Plattsburg and opened a store on the north-west corner of Water and Bridge Streets, putting in a complete stock of general merchandise. He was subsequently engaged in the iron and lumber business on the Saranac River, also continuing in trade until his decease in 1872, after a busy life of seventy-three years. The maiden name of his wife was Maria D. Kirtland. She was a native of Granville, Washington County, N.Y., and was a daughter of John and Lucy (Burbank) Kirtland. Mr. And Mrs. Lawrence Myers were the parents of nine children, two of whom died young, namely; Peter, in infancy; and Maggie when seven years old. Seven grew to mature years - Joseph, Lucy, Lawrence, John H., Michael P., Jared K., and William W.

John H. Myers received a practical education in the days of his youth, finishing his studies at the Plattsburg Academy, and at the age of seventeen years went into a machine-shop to learn the trade, serving an apprenticeship of two and one-half years. He afterward entered the iron works of his father, which were located on the Saranac River, and at the expiration of a year was so well qualified for the business that he was placed in charge of the establishment, which he superintended for twelve years. Mr. Myers was elected President of the Iron National Bank in 1887, and has since given his entire time to the management of this institution.

John H. Myers and Julia R. Lane were married in 1856. Mrs. Myers was born in the city of Troy, N.Y., and is a daughter of Matthew and Maria Lane. The union of Mr. And Mrs. Myers has been blessed by the birth of four children, but one daughter only is now living, Gertrude R.

Mr. Myers is a man of recognized worth as a citizen, his business ability being unquestioned and his character irreproachable. In local affairs he takes a genuine interest, and has served with credit and acceptability in various offices. He has represented Plattsburg on the County Board of Supervisors, is now a member of the Village Board of Education, and has succeeded his father as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Plattsburg Academy. He was the first President of the Clinton County Agricultural Society, serving in that position five years. In politics he has always affiliated with the Republican party, and cast his first Presidential vote for John C. Fremont. He is a man of deep religious convictions, and both he and his wife are members of the Presbyterian Church.
