Henry Meyers obituary from Richardson County Record, Falls City, NE Dec. 13, 1877
Few men in the humbler walks of life have a more eventful hisory than Elder Henry Meyers who died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. U.W. Miller, two miles from this city, last Saturday morning.He was born near Berlin, Somerset county, Pa., a litte over eighty years ago, at which place he has a brother still living, Mr. Samuel Meyers.When about twenty-one years of age he married Miss Anna Lichty of the same county, with whom he had sixteen children, twelve of whom grew to manhood and womanhood, married and raised families.His oldest child, Mrs. Sallie Livengood, now lives at Elklick, Pa.; Henry, Jr. and Michael Meyers, Mrs. A. Livengood, Mrs. Lichty and Mrs. Harrington, Mrs. Nedrow, Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Saylor live near this city.Mr. Meyers leaves nearly one hundred grandchildren and fifty great grandchildren.He always showed untiring zeal in affiliating all these with the church of his choice--the German Baptist or Dunkard denomination--and very nearly succeeeded in enlisting all of them when reaching mature years.Early in life he began preaching for this church, and has few equals in the way of success for ministerial labors.Soon after his marriage he removed from Berlin to Milford, Pa. where at Middle creek he organized, and for many years preached to, what became one of the largest and most influential congregations in that State.In accord with those days and places, Mrs. and Mrs. Meyers with the aid of the children as they grew, hewed the trees and gathered the rocks, making a fine Pennsylvania farm of a solid wilderness.
While spiritual and temporal prosperity smiled upon the labors of this family, they determined some thirty years ago, and before railroads were extensive, to remove to the then new country of Carroll county, Ill., taking with them most of their children, nearly all the others following within a few years.Some of the journey was made by steamboat and some by wagon.At this place, deceased organized, and for about twenty years presided over, what is now the strongest and most prosperous German Baptist church in Illinois.
Nine years ago some of the children moved to this county with their families, Father Meyers and his wife soon following, seeking wider fields of labor, even in advanced age.The young but growing Dunkard church of this place, with princicpal place of meeting some five miles north of Falls City, has been the beloved child and special care of Elder Meyers from its first days until his death.There was something very touching, indeed, in the manner the people of that congregation bade adieu to his remains; how young and old alwyas rejoiced to meet him with the name "grandfather," and how he labored untiringly for the peace and prosperity of his people.He exerted much influence in keeping all his posterity from commerical business and out of politics. With one single exception all his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are today engaged in farming.We think it within bounds to say that over one hundred farms were opened and owned by himself and his descendants.His counsels to young and old in morals, business and religiion were always highly respected by all.He retained his reason until his last moment, and departed with bright faculties for one so old.His wife, aged seventy-seven, will spend her future with her children here.Her health and strength is yet good.
The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist Church in this city last Sunday by Rev. Joseph Lichtyof Brown County, KS., an old time friend of deceased.The remains were interred at the church cemetery north of town, followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends.
