JAY A. MYERS, son of Noah is one of the prominent merchants of Toronto. He is a native of Jefferson county, born April 15, 1849. The first vocation to which he turned after his school days were completed was farming, which he followed for a considerable period. Finally leaving the farm he engaged in business in Toronto, but not long afterward, in 1871, removed to Wetzel county, W. Va., where he opened a store at Paden's Valley, and remained there three years. He then returned to Toronto and embarked in the grocery business, in which he has built up a good custom, and became a popular business man. On January 15, 1874 he was married to Sabina H., daughter of Henry and Julia Bulger of Brownsville, Penn. To this union have been born four children, Alberti, Cora B., Estella and Alvin H., of whom Estella died September 30, 1885. Mr. Myers and wife are members of the Methodist Protestant church of Toronto, and socially are in great favor. Politically he is a strong republican.
