Re: need help on john + elizabeth myers cumberland co.,pa.
My gggg-grandfather George Myers also lived in Frankford Twp, Cumberland Co, during the 1830 and 40s. I am guessing that he might have been from Adams County since we were unable to find any baptism records for George in Cumberland Co.In the 1840 census George's neighbor was John Myers, age 20-30.
The Cumberland Co Historical Society will do genealogy research for a fee.They did extensive and very thorough research for me, and it was well worth the $60. But I still am not able to identify the parents or siblings of George. I'll include below info on my family and would like to share information if you find anything more on the Myers of Frankford Twp.
George Myers was born about 1816 in PA, he married Catherine about 1835, their first 2 sons David and Jesse were born in Frankford Twp, Cumberland Co, in 1836 and abt 1839. Catherine died in 1841 and George married Isabel Dewalt in 1841. The family moved to Williams Co, Ohio about 1845.Peter Myers acted as the agent for 10 acres of land that George Myers owned in Cumberland Co, I believe that this Peter Myers was from Adams County, the son of Ludwig Myers, and there is an extensive family tree on ancestry for this Myers family.
