Henry A. Myers, a retired farmer and for many years a minister of the gospel in the Methodist Protestant and United Brethren churches, now residing in Eureka, Illinois, was born in Union township, Licking county, Ohio, August23, 1827.He is a son of Henry and Rebecca (Stone) Myers, the latter being a daughter of George Washington Stone, from Lost River, Virginia, where he was for many years an enterprising and prosperous farmer.He was a cousin of George Washington and his portrait bears a striking resemblance to him.Rebecca Stone was born and reared in Virginia, but in 1810 removed to Ohio, after the death of her father.
The Myers family are of German origin, the great-great-grandfather of our subject coming from Germany and settling in Little York, from which point the family widely scattered, descendants of which are found in many of the states of the Union.Theodore Myers, the grandfather of our subject, was born in Winchester, Virginia, [Frederick Co] and there spent his entire life.He served for three years in the Indian wars that followed the Revolutionary war.He became quite wealthy and sold his large farm near Little York, taking Continental money in payment.This so depreciated that he lost nearly all his fortune.He had purchased a tract of land where Pittsburg now stands, but the owner was killed before writings were drawn and so he held the money.His son, Henry Myers, was born near Winchester, Virginia, which was his home until his removal with his family, consisting of wife and three children, to Licking county, Ohio, in 1810."
