     [georgemyer.FTW]

"William Myers was born in Berkeley Co, VA September 26, 1826.He is a son of Isaac and Catherine (Hudson) Myers, and is of Dutch descent on his father's and English-Irish descent on his mother's side. They were parents of eight children, five of whom are not yet living. The fall of 1827, they moved to Greene Co, OH and after four years moved to Seneca Co. They were good,honest people, and members of the Methodist Church. Mrs Myers died in about 1845, and Mr. Myers in 1846.
William Myers was reared in Ohio, from the age of 11 to that of 24. He received but a meager education, sacrificing his schooling to assist on the farm.

He was married September 5, 1850, Ann Rumbough, daughter of William and Mary Rumbaugh; five days after their marriage, they started for Iowa, to build a home on the Western prairies. Not liking the appearance of that country, he returned to Indiana and purchased eighty acres of his present farm. The story of hardships of early pioneer life is needless of a repetition here.
Mr. and Mrs. Myers were industrious and economical, and have risen to plenty through the medium of hard labor. Mr. and Mrs. Myers have an only child-Lucinda, who is the wife of John Newton, and resides in Jefferson Twp. They have reared a son by adoption, whom they have treated as their own. His name is Orlando Myers, and he is a steady and honest young man. Mr.Myers has been reasonably sucessful in life, and shows his gratitude by assiting all laudable interprises.
Mrs. Myers was born in VA May 29, 1824, and she and Mr. myers are among the leading citizens of the township."
