Was born January 24, 1814, in Germany, and came to America with his parents and settled inLebanon County, Pennsylvania, in the fall of 1814. From there his parents removed to Dauphin county, where they lived about eight years, and then removed to Center county, where they resided until 1832, when they removed to Columbia county, where they remained about two years, and then emigrated to Richland county, Ohio, in 1836, and settled near Savannah, then known as Haneytown, in Clearcreek township. Here he became acquainted with and married Miss Annie Mason, daughter of Martin Mason, and then resided about two years in Ruggles Township, Huron County, after which he removed to Montgomery Township, and purchased his present homestead. The fruits of his marriage has been sixteen children, fourteen of whom still survive. His sons are Charles, Alonzo, John, Martin, Joseph, Frank, and George; the girls are Mary, Anne, Lucia, Elizabeth, Irene, Ella, and Maggie; all married but two boys and one girl.
Mr. Myers came in 1836, and has been a resident of Montgomery Township forty-four years, and all the time, he has been a practical farmer. He has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church ten years. He now attends all protestant churches, miscellaneously.
Mr. Myers owns a good farm, which is in an excellent state of cultivation, and yields an abundance to reward him for his toil. He has quite an interesting family who have been raised to habits of industry and economy, and are respected as useful and exemplary citizens.
