From what I have noticed, there were two lines of Hiers in the Miami Co. area. My aunt married John Hiers who passed away Aug. 12, 1987.His father was Omer b. May 1895, the son of Jacob b. Dec. 1856. As far as I know, Jacob did not have a William W.Jacob and Manda had Walter b. Apr. 1885, Elsa b. July 1887, Ira b. Feb. 1890, Daisy b. Sept. 1892, Omer b. May 1895, and Dewey b. May 1898.Omer married Flossie Draving. Could William be William Walter Hiers? He would have been 19 years old.
