Chrystopher MYERS Family Line

Most of the information here was compiled by Ron Weddle and Bert Thompson.  This is an attempt by the researches to correct information which has appeared in books and Web Sites which we believe to be erroneous.
The 1830 federal census of Monroe County lists one Margaret Myors or Myers as head of household. She was a native of Cumberland County (now Clinton Co.) Kentucky who arrived in Indiana circa 1827. She had four children: Jacob B. Myers, who married Martha "Patsy" Huff in 1828; Elizabeth Myers, who married Peter Whisenand in 1829; Henderson Allen Myers, who married Minerva S. Coatney in 1838, and Minerva C. Myers, who married William W. Duncan in 1835. It is believed that her first husband was Chrystopher Myers who stayed and remarried in Kentucky.
