  • Notes 
    • The 1860 census lists his father John as a 46 yr old farmer living with his wife "Susannah," 41, and 9 children: Levi, 19; Josiah, 17; Emily, 15; Jacob, 13; Margaret, 11; John, 8; Edward, 7; Michael, 4; and Milton, 2. 1860 U.S. Census, Union P.O., Carroll Cnty, MD (M 563, Roll 471, stamped p. 660).

      In 1880 the census shows John Myers, 26, a farmer, living with his wife "Susana," 22, a son, Oliver, 3, and daughter Bertie, 1. Also in the home was Laura Bechtel, 10, John's sister-in-law. All family members had been born in Maryland. 1880 U.S. Census, E.D. 2, Uniontown, Carroll Cnty, MD (T 9, Roll 506, stamped p. 295)

      The 1900 census records that John T. Myers, 48, born Sep 1851 [sic], was living with his wife of 24 years, "Susen A", 43, born Feb 1857, and 2 children: Thomas E, 13, born Oct 1886, and Blanche L, 7, born Apr 1893. All were born in Maryland; John was a farmer and the two children were "at school." "Susen" was the mother of 6 children, all 6 of whom were still living. 1900 U.S. Census, Myers Dist, Carroll Cnty, MD (T 623, Roll 620, stamped p. 61A).

      John's tombstone reads: "Myers | John T. Myers | Died April 9, 1927 | Aged 74 yrs. 8 mos. 28 ds." (That calculates to a birth date of 11 Sep 1852 [sic].)
