Did Frederick Myers have a son, John, born ca. 1850?I ask this because I am researching a Jacob Boyer who married Margaret Seese 17 Aug. 1843 in Tuscarawas Co., OH.On the 1880 Seville, Gratiot Co., MI census for Jacob Boyer with wife, Margaret, there is a John Meyers age 29 born OH, father b. PA and mother b. OH, and John Meyers is noted as "nephew".
I believe this Jacob Boyer (b. ca 21 PA) is a brother to my ancestor Samuel Boyer b. ca 1817 PA, and Samuel Boyer's mother, Susannah Boyer/Bayer married 2nd, Benjamin Gorsuch in Tuscarawas Co., OH 1835.Some family groups have Susannah Boyer Gorsuch's maiden name as Miller.
I also believe that Jacob Boyer and Samuel Boyer's father was named Jacob Boyer of PA.
Samuel Boyer married Elizabeth Troyer in Holmes Co., OH and Samuel's family moved to Gratiot Co., IL.
I look forward to hearing from you regarding John Meyers.Maryann Stalpers
