In an ongoing,everlasting effort to research our family,I have compiled this information to date. The Davis' of which I am a decendant were reported as being from South Wales,imigrating to Maryland in the late 1780's.They have been in the Southern parts of PA and Frederick County,MD.,most living around the Thurmont and Catoctin Furnace areas.The Myers family came from Switzerland,I believe through Pennsylvania and to Fairfield County,Liberty Township,Ohio, with my g-g-grandfather being born here in 1832. I welcome anyone's input on these lines !!

Special thanks to :Wayne E. Davis of Middletown,MD.,David C. McJonathan of Waynesboro,PA.,Wayne E. Davis of Whitehall-Columbus,OH.,(Dad)Raymond E. Davis-Baltimore,OH.,for all their gracious help and abundance of information on the Davis side.And,on the Myers side,I am deeply indebted to Mrs. Mildred Garner of Columbia,MO.,Rick and Jody Myers of Johnstown,OH.,George and Kim Stilwell of Baltimore,OH.Without their help,this would not have been possible !!
