Formation of Kentucky County, Va

In 1777 Fincastle County, Virginia's General Assembly divided Fincastle County into three parts and created Washington, Montgomery, and Kentucky Counties. The act creating these counties described Kentucky County as being "to the south and westward of a line beginning on the Ohio at the mouth of Great Sandy creek and running up the same and the main, or northeasterly, branch thereof to the Great Laurel Ridge of Cumberland Mountain, then south westerly along the said mountain to the line of North Carolina."

In 1780, Kentucky County was divided into three counties -- Jefferson, Fayette, and Lincoln. Within just a few years, six more counties had been carved out of those three. Between 1784 and 1792, people living in those counties held ten conventions on the question of statehood; on 18 December 1789 Virginia's General Assembly passed an act allowing Kentucky to apply for statehood and on 1 June 1792, those nine counties became a state, with the full consent of Virginia.

The Library of Virginia has the following records pertaining to counties that are part of Kentucky.

WAS PHILIP BORN IN PENNSYLVANIA? IRELAND? GERMANY?

Philip was a Pennsylvania farmer of German-Irish descent. According to family tradition, he was born in Ireland in 1765, however, at least one source (---"Kentucky: A History of the State"---) describes him as a native of Pennsylvania, born in 1755.

Myers is certainly a German name and most of the families with which the Myerses were associated were German Brethren who were part of what is known as the Palatine Migration from the regions along the Rhine River to primarily Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Then what about the family tradition of Ireland as his birth place? A possible explanation could be this. When the flood of Palatine immigrants began arriving in Amsterdam, they overwhelmed that city's resources. Queen Anne of England needed protestant colonists for Northern Ireland and America. They were needed in Northern Ireland to counter balance the influence of the Irish Catholics who were mostly against English Rule. Settlers were needed in America to move into the backcountry to provide a buffer between England's colonists along the coasts and the Native Americans of the interior.

As a result, Queene Anne agreed to provide the ships needed for transporting the Palatines, but, due to the large number of immigrants, there was sometimes a long wait for an available ship. Refugee camps were established in England and Ireland until the Palatines could be transported to America. Some of the Palatines stayed in Ireland while others immigrated when their ships became available. Philip's family could have been among those families who settled temporarily in Ireland before continuing on to America.

Of course, family traditions are sometimes incorrect, and Philip could have been born in Pennsylvania of parents who were Palatine immigrants.

DID PHILIP HAVE A BROTHER NAMED PETER MYERS?

Did Philip have a brother named Peter? "Two Centuries of Brothersvalley" includes Philip Myers and Peter Myers, listed together as members of Capt. Henry Rhoads group to migrate from Pennsylvania to Kentucky. A Peter Myers m. Catherine Ward May 1800 in Muhlenberg County, KY [Muhlenberg County, KY, Marriages, Sec IV Ch 52]. If the Philip Myers listed among the Rhoads group is our Philip, and he most likely is, then he would have had a brother named Peter.
[]

WAS PHILIP AMONG THE FOLLOWERS OF CAPT HENRY RHOADS?

and

THE MYERS - RHOADS CONNECTION

In 1785, Capt Henry Rhoads led over 100 families from the Bedford County, PA, region, to the Green River country of Logan County, KY.

The evidence:

1. Among those listed in the 100+ families of Capt Rhoads' group of 1785 are Philip Myers [Mires], and wife Mary, and Peter Myers [Mires], and wife Elizabeth, of Pipe Creek, MD. No children are listed for either.

2. Philip's first child, 'Henry', was born in Logan County, KY, in 1786.

3. Henry married Mary Polly Martin Rhoads, a granddaughter of Capt Rhoads.

4. Both families were associated with the same German Brethren group of families.

5. Philip's wife, Elizabeth, has been recorded as being from Pipe Creek, MD. [Although, his wife has variously been recorded to be named Elizabeth, Mary, etc.] Capt Rhoads had earlier lived in the Pipe Creek area as had several of the German Brethren families and there were strong connections among these families living in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.

6. Barbara Larmon [Laramon, Lauriman] was the second wife of Capt Henry Rhoads. Barbara's brother Edward Larmon married Susannah, the daughter of Philip Myers.

While mostly circumstantial, this evidence is strong enough to support the likely conclusion that our Philip is the same person as 'Philip Mires' of Capt Rhoads' group. ---RCM

ANOTHER MYERS - RHOADS CONNECTION

Barbara Larmon [Laramon, Lauriman] was the second wife of Capt Henry Rhoads (married 1807-1814). In 1804, Barbara's brother Edward Larmon married Susannah, the daughter of Philip Myers. ---RCM

John Vaught, d. after 1813 purchased land in Logan or Muhlenberg County from Peter Myers. ---RCM
[]

PETER MYERS?

This John Vaught was the grand uncle of Mary Martin Rhoads who married Henry Myers.

History of Washington County Maryland

Adapted for this page from the book History of Frederick County, Maryland by Thomas J. C. Williams

A Proclamation...

In March of 1732 the proprietor of the Provence of Maryland desired to attract settlers to the Northern and the Western areas of his territory ., so he made a proclamation declaring special land prices and taxes for settlers.

1st Any person having a family to come to the land within three years of the proclamation and actually settle on the land could have two hundred acres without payment for 3 years. After 3 years the settler had to pay to the proprietor four shillings sterling for every hundred acres.

2nd Any single person, male or female between the ages of 14 and 31 could have 100 acres under the same conditions.

3rd They were to be charged taxes and the security of their land would be insured as if they were British subjects, which was quite a boon.

The Big Land Grab...

Large tracts of land were speedily secured by a relatively few of the weal thier citizens of Maryland, including the finest parts of the valleys of the Monocacy and the Antietam in what is now Frederick and Washington counties.

Daniel Dulaney took a patent for "Monocacy Manor" a tract of 8983 acres.
Charles Carroll took "Carroll's Manor" in what is now Buckeystown district.
Patrick Dulaney took a tract upon a portion of which Frederick City was built.
James Carroll took a large tract in Linganore district.
Leonard Calvert and Thomas Johnson patented the Catoctin Furnace property.

The Settlers...

While the early land grants were to English-speaking people from Maryland, and the earliest settlers came from nearby St. Mary's, Charles, and Prince George's Counties, a large part of the actual settlers of the land were Palatines from Germany. Most of the German speaking Immigrants were spreading south from Pennsylvania. Commerce between the German settlements in southern Pennsylvania and parts of Virginia was common, and the main road between these areas was through this part of Maryland.

The German Influx...

Long before there were any settlements in Washington County, parties of Germans passed through it from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, to seek homes in Virginia. The principal route was over a pack horse or Indian road that crossed the present Pennsylvania counties of York and Adams to the Monocacy where it passed into Maryland. Once in Maryland, the road passed through Crampton's Gap and crossed the Potomac at several fords. The first German settlement in the area near Washington County was as early as 1729 in the village of Monocacy in Frederick County, which was the first village beyond the lower part of Montgomery County in Western Maryland.

Monocacy was situated at or near the present village of Creagerstown. Here around 1732 the first German church, which was known as the Log Church, was built in Maryland. The Log Church later became the church of Creagerstown and then was replaced by a brick church a few rods north of the old site in 1834. There were several taverns there to accommodate travelers on the Monocacy Road, which was constructed by the governments of Pennsylvania and Maryland. Monocacy Road was an improvement upon the old Indian trail which was formerly used. The road went from Wright's Ferry in Pennsylvania to the Maryland line, then to the Potomac, and then on to the uplands of Virginia.

The "Irish"...

This group was called the Irish by the locals and the history books. However they were actually Scots/Irish who were also known as the Ulster Scots. The Scots/Irish tended to migrate towards the highlands of Frederick County and Washington County, Maryland. In small groups, they also lived in the German communities of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.

MONOCACY TRAIL

Big Pipe Creek and Little Pipe Creek flow into the Monocacy River about 10 miles south of the present PA/MD border and form part of the Monocacy watershed. The Monocacy River watershed was the site of many land surveys, claims and roads. One of these roads, (approx. 1750) ran from Conestoga and Conewago into MD close to the Monocacy River, crossing Pipe Creek and, through other connections, on to the Potomac. The actual routes are not accurately known. The border between MD and PA was in dispute for many years before the survey by Mason and Dixon and many of the MD claims extended into what is now PA. Therefore there was a rather free flow of traffic between the Conewago Valley area and the Monocacy watershed. This flow prompted the formation of mission churches at many places along the route including Littlestown, Taneytown and many more. Since many of the claims and surveys were named for the creeks and rivers that they encompassed, you may have seen areas and/or surveys called Pipe Creek.
[]

PIPE CREEK HUNDRED

Existed by 1776. Originally in Baltimore County. Later in Carroll County when it was created out of Frederick and Baltimore Counties.
\

http://www.mcn.org/2/noel/ADAM.htm

* Taneytown, the location of Blasius Noel is now in Carroll County, Maryland. Carroll County, was formed in 1837 from the western part of Baltimore County and eastern part of Frederick County. So if you are interested in the era before 1837 please check Baltimore County or Frederick County Sources and Information. Carroll County includes what were in 1800 the North Hundred, Pipe Creek Hundred, Delaware Upper Hundred and Delaware Lower Hundred of Baltimore County. It included the Pipe Creek, Westminster, Unity, Burnt House, Piney Creek, and Taneytown Hundreds of Frederick County.

You all might want to check out the Olive Tree Genealogy Homepage.
There is a section on Palatine History. The Palatine is an area in
Germany where many religious dissenters had settled, coming from
Germany, Holland, Switzerland, etc.

"The scene was set for a mass migration. At the invitation of Queen
Anne in the spring of 1709, about 7,000 harassed Palatines sailed down the Rhine to Rotterdam. From there, about 3,000 were dispatched to America, either directly or via England, under the auspices of William Penn. The remaining 4,000 were sent via England to Ireland to strengthen the protestant interest.....The British could not
effectively handle the number of Palatines in London and there may have been as many as 32,000 by November 1709.....In 1710, three large groups of Palatines sailed from London. The first went to Ireland, the second to Carolina and the third to New York."

From another source, "Palatines to America is an organization for
people researching the origins of their German-speaking ancestors, no
matter where they originated. Many of the German-speaking people that came to North America did not come directly from what is now Germany.

Many of them came here after spending time (from a few months to a few generations) in other countries, such as Switzerland, England, Russia, Ireland and other countries."

Could the Brethren have been included in these Palatine stopover
migrations? I've felt that might explain how my ancestor, JOHN
STICKLER (who had a Dunkard background) could have been born on a ship transporting his family from England to America. He was also supposed to have Irish, as well as English blood. They apparently came from England and settled in Pa initially.

What do you think?

Lorena Eaker wrote in response to post I made

Many of the 1709ers who made it to England did not make it to
America due to lack of ships to transport the hordes. . . .

The well known author, Hank Jones, has several books out on
these 1709ers as well as other publications by other authors.
Hank Z JONES! That's it! He is fantastic! Great speaker, wonderful
scholar. If any of you get a chance to hear him speak, jump at the
chance. His genealogy is excellent; he works on "whole hoards" of
people, not just a family or two. He is producing some scholarly work
which we can all use for reference.

Has also been an actor of some substance. At his speech which I
attended, he told of how he moved from acting to genealogy. Something
about having just spent two weeks on genealogy, getting home and having a message from his agent about a possible job in which he'd dress up in an animal costume. He said, "Right there, I made my choice."

Alice Beard

Hi from Karen to all. Yes Hank Jones is a great speaker and scholar.
Have you read his Psychic Roots book--I think all us genealogists must
have some psychic abilities or we could not match up with all our new
fellow researchers(by divine intervention). He and Annette Burgert are
my two favorites at NGS conventions. Also books by both are good too. To think I liked Hank when he was a "My Three Sons" guy on that show--back then I had black and white tv and no genealogy to take up my time. Now I read histories and deeds and rarely see tv. Hank has some great thoughts on family burial grounds too (that is very important to my research).

Seriously though--Hank has several points about the Irish that were
banished due to religion and that many were German who were taken to
Ireland (names anglicized) and then came over to US. Amazing how we have to re-evaluate info. If I had known the Jones info earlier I would have had more time on my Scotch Irish lines in Carroll County and also my German lines that were "Lutheran". But they weren't, they were Brethren and that is an entirely different way to research--not as easy back then to research as now. The spread of Brethren info has been so extensive over the last 5 years. Thanks to all you out there who spread the Brethren research back and forth to us waiting to find one more elusive relative. The ones that hold a small Davidic hymnal written by Martin Billmyer, lives on land outside York Co PA --now in Carroll County MD, wear black clothing with black bonnets, and are buried on their family farm whose early deed is impossible to trace until after 1790 (although they were in PA in 1726). Those Neffs, Hohf, Utz really were Brethren not Lutheran like the authorities at Gettysburg College say.

Hi Margo,
Don't know if this will help, but recently found it in the History of
the COB of Western PA 1916 on the Myers Family. This name
seems to have been originally written "Moyer", then "Meyer",
and at present is written "Meyers" and "Myers". Sometime toward
the close of the 18th century four brothers, Michael, Rudolph,
Henry and Christian Meyers (Moyer) came to Somerset Co., PA from
what is now Lebanon Co., PA. It is not known if they came at
the same time nor whether they were accompanied by their parents.

There was a George Myers in Elk Lick Twp. as early as 1784. If
he was one of the above brothers, or a brother I cannot say.

One Abram Myers died in Elk Lick TWp. in 1832 whose sons were
John, Henry, Michael, Jacob and Samuel.

It is possible that the Myerses were not Dunkers, but Michael
and Christian became such through the influence of their wives.

There is more on the descendants of these 2 families starts on
p. 497. Good luck! Bea

Hi, Ron-

There was a Philip Myers in the family I'm researching but he isn't the one you are looking for. He died in Adams County, PA and was Lutheran.

I looked in the book Allegheny Passage and found another Myers (and variant spellings) family who are very much connected to the Brethren but I see no mention of a Philip in that line. That Myers family was from York/Adams counties also and ended up in Hampshire County, VA (later WV).

I'm sorry I don't know who your Philip is -- I wish I could help.

Hi from Karen. This note is in response to Roland Brown response and
info about the HOOVERs and Pfoutzs of that area being related to
President Hoover.

Yes Roland oh yes I am aware of the Andreas Huber. Several years
ago we tried to save the Christian Geiman (wife is Anna
SHELLENBARGER) family burial ground which overlooks the Andreas Hoover Mill and farm. The land is located in Bachmans Valley, Carroll Co MD between the town of Wentz near PA line and the town of Westminster. The family burial ground of my relatives is off Hoover Mill Road and Ebbvale Road.

The area I am concerned about now leads into land of TRINE, George
HOOVER, Henrich WAREHEIME 1792, Israel WELLS 1748, David AND Michael and Frederich BACHMAN 1800'S. Nearby involvement will include BORN, SCHAEFFER brothers Jacob, John, ECKLER, REINHARDT, WEAVER, BIXLER, NEFF, LIPPY, LEISTER, Philip and Peter MYERS, and many more land owners. The area will change drastically in appearance in the next months so I want to find anything historic now, not later when it is bulldozed.

We are talking about 500 or so acres of farmland and those great
rolling hills and valleys. If you have anything to help, please let me
know. If you especially are looking for HOOVERS that you cannot find in
a church burial ground, please let me know if you think they may be
on/in the land!

Again, thanks to all who help out in this endeavor. Regards from

Hi Joan and other brethren researchers from Karen in MD.

Joan, someone sent me email about the Huber family--I thought it was
in one of the letters on Brethren too. They said that that Andreas Huber
was related to Pfoutz line and Brethren--I know nothing about this. I
only know that the Andreas Huber land borders my Christian Geiman and Anna Shellenbarger farm and it is near to the Miller/ Myers farm I am researching now, outside of Westminster and towards Ebbvale and
Wentz(Black Rock COB). Will look it up when I can. I had asked if there
were any researchers doing

Hoover/ Schaeffer/ Lippy/ Neff/ Myers/ Miller/ Warehime/Wolfe/Bixler in
Carroll Co MD near Bachman's Valley.

If you have anything to add, please do so. I have 2 more weeks before
the land is changed drastically by progress---and you know what historic
things I research that are in the grove of trees at the top of a hill
about 200 yards from an old house--you know the one with old slate
stones (family burial grounds).Thanks from tired Karen in Md.

Andreas Huber/Hoover the ancestor of Herbert Hoover. Are you referring to the same Andreas Huber who arrived in America in 1738 on the Snow Two Sisters? He is identified in PA German Pioneers as the ancestor of Herbert Hoover although apparently there has been some discussion as to the correct Andreas Huber. Also, Annette K. Burgert's book 18th Century Emigrants from German-Speaking Lands to North America Vol. 1 The Northern Kraichgau discusses this Andreas Huber on pages 180-181 and lists him as previously being identified as the ancestor of Herbert Hoover.

However, the Gary Boyd Roberts book on the Ancestors of American
Presidents (written more recently than the other sources) seems to
indicate a different Andreas Huber as Herbert Hoover's ancestor.

Can you clarify as to which Andreas Huber is the correct ancestor of
Herbert Hoover and what proof this is based on? Thanks--I have been
wondering about these discrepancies for some time, and this discussion enables me to attempt to solve the mystery.

Another possibility was Jacob Meyers, who in 1782 acquired a 10,000-acre tract of Kentucky land, which patent was signed by Virginia Gov. Patrick Henry, and Meyers began building the Slate Creek iron mill (later the Bourbon iron furnace) in 1787. During the late 1780s, John Cockey Owings began making significant land purchases in present-day Bourbon and Bath counties, Kentucky, which eventually included the Meyers tract, and may have reached a total of 70,000 acres. The writer believes that John C. Owings engaged his future son-in-law, Benedict Van Pradelles, to oversee his property in Kentucky, and David Owings reported to the writer that in 1790 Van Pradelles advertised in the Lexington Gazette for recovery of a lost pocketbook, which contained papers written in French.

Wickliffe,Ky.-Jacob Myers (March) sold 10,000 Acres lying in Lincoln
County near mouth of Ohio River and on the Mississippi River to Wm.
Goodwin.(This land would now be in Ballard Co. Ky.) This deed is recorded
in Clark Co. Ky. deed book 1 p. 230-237. Jacob March is of Clark Co. Ky.
at the time and has some connection to the Wickliffe family. This land
would have been in Lincoln Co. until 1792 then Logan Co., 1797 in
Christian Co., 1799 Livingston Co., 1834 McCracken Co. and 1842 in
Ballard.
Is anyone researching this Jacob March/Myers??? Did he marry the widow of
John Whitledge/ Wickliffe?? He bought land in Bourbon Co. Ky. in 1814
from John Whitledge's (will 1788 Bourbon Co. Ky.-(Clark Co. was
then in Bourbon Co.) heirs.

GENEALOGY OF THE MYERS FAMILY
LOGAN AND MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KENTUCKY
1794 - 1982





Compiled and Edited by William H. Myers





This Genealogy is the result of five years of research and study of the Myers family history. While this has not been a full time occupation, it does represent several thousand hours of time spent in one area or another. Some of the time was spent just learning how to do Genealogy. If this can be of interest to anyone connected with our family, I consider the time well spent. If you will notify me of any additions or corrections, I anticipate a second edition in four or five years. If there is a lot of response, that could be sooner. WHM



GENEALOGY OF THE MYERS FAMILY
LOGAN AND MUHLENBERG CO., KY.



I. Phillip Myers
1765 - 1842



Phillip Myers is thought to be the first generation Myers from our family to live in America. It has been said that he had one brother and that they came over from Ireland together to Pennsylvania. He moved to Kentucky before 1795, and probably before 1786, when Henry was born. This was around the same time that some other German immigrants moved to Logan County from Bedford, Pa., (York County). They lived in the Paradise area which later became Muhlenberg Co. According to Col. Ed Manley, a historian of early Logan County, some of the families that came to Logan County together were the Voghts, now Vaughts, Hunsakers, Stum, Rhoades, and Phillip Myers, as well as some others. Phillip's son, Henry Myers, married a Rhoades (Mary). We have information on the Rhoades family from Bedford, Pa. It seems that Daniel Rhoades was a minuteman in the militia before 1776, and later was in the army under General Muhlenberg. One descendant of the Rhoades (Absolon), married a first cousin to Daniel Boone, but the Rhoades family will not be gone into here. Although the abovenamed early settlers of Logan County were evidently fairly prominent people, it might be mentioned that Logan County seemed to be sort of a collection point for a number of criminals, fugitives from justice, and other "ne'er-do-wells", during the early nineteenth century. As a matter of fact, the immediate ancestors of the Jesse James Gang settled in Logan County first, when they moved in from Virginia. It may only be fair to point out that Jesse and Frank's father was a preacher, and the James' family was all highly respected.

Phillip was on the Logan Co. tax records in 1794, 1795, 1800 and 1804. There is no information on Phillip available in Bedford, Pa. as of this writing, but it is possible that he came from there. If anyone is interested in paying for a researcher to look further into this possibility, write to Vaughn Whisker, 332 S. Bedford St., Bedford, Pa. Another Phillip Myers, born around 1780 to 1785 and died around 1858, moved to Kentucky in 1801, and he also was from Pennsylvania. His first wife was Elizabeth, the second not known, but they had Joseph, Levi, Michael, George, Isaac, Mary Ann, Matilda and Catherine. It is possible that they were related to the Jacob Myers family. Jacob owned a large part of the State of Kentucky in the early 1800's. Unfortunately, we aren't related, however, Phillip and his next two generations did do fairly well for themselves. He had at least 17 slaves and their descendants (many of them) are still living in Logan Co., in a community called "Bibbsville" Or "Bibbstown". Logan County records show that Phillip acquired a tract of land from a man named "Bibb". In his Will, Phillip gave his slaves their freedom and $500.00. These Blacks still carry the Myers name and live there. Phillip also willed to his grandson, Soloman B., and to James G., four hundred acres of land in Muhlenberg Co. and he also willed to Soloman, James G. and David H. four hundred acres in Logan Co.



Phillip had two children:

Susanna b. 10-3-1784 d. 8-22-1844

Henry b. 8-20-1786 d. 10-14-1846



Phillip Myers Will
Sept. 13, 1858

I, Phillip Myers of Logan Co., Ky., being of sound mind and memory, have thought proper to make the following as my last will and testament.

It is my will and desire that my slaves shall all be free at my death, to wit: Lydia, George, Ben, Aaron (or Hann), Mark, Henry, Jessie, Henna, Melinda, Nell, Matilda, Dolly, Louisia, Mindy, David, Bill, and Dick, together with their future increase. The track of land on which I reside containing about four hundred acres, I will and bequeath to my two grandsons, Soloman and James Myers, sons of Henry Myers. Soloman's part to be laid off on the West side of the River and James's part on the East side. I also will and bequeath to the said Soloman and James Myers and their brother David Myers the tracts of land containing about four hundred acres lying in Logan County in the neighborhood of Bibbs Chapel to be equally divided between them. I will and bequeath to my Grandaughters Elizabeth Baker and Susan Myers, daughters of my son Henry, $500.00 each. I will and bequeath my daughter, Susan Larmon, $100.00 in addition to what I have heretofore advanced to her to be raised out of the sale of such of my personal estate as may be sold. I will and bequeath to my slaves above emancipated, $500.00 to give them a start after my death. I will and desire that all the balance of my estate, both real, personal and mixed be sold and that the proceeds be equally divided between my son Henry Myers and three sons before named and if after the foregoing bequests, there shall be any other monies to become due to my estate or any other money hands, I will and bequeath same to my said son Henry and three sons to be equally divided as aforesaid. I hereby appoint my son Henry Myers and My friend Mermaduke P. Morton as executors of this my last will and testament.

II. Susanna Myers Larmon
10-3-1784 - 8-22-1844

Susanna married Edward Larmon 2-16-1803. Descendants of theirs are still living in the Logan Co. area. There as been no attempt in this Genealogy to trace this line, However, this probably will be done in the future. It may be of interest to note the names of their children.

They are:

Gyney B. b. 6-10-1804

James b. 1-18-1806 (Her brother named one son James.)

Isaac b. 2-28-1808

Henry b. 10-20-1809 (Brother Henry)

Phillip b. 7-25-1811 (Her father’s name)

Levinia b. 11-12-1813

Elizabeth b. 11-11-1815 (Her brother named a daughter Elizabeth.)

Rebecca b. 11-30-1817

Barhannan b. 2-12-1820

Edward b. 2-12-1822 (Her husband's name)

Susanna b. 6-10-1824 (Named for mom)

Soloman b. 11-4-1826 (Brother Henry also named one son Soloman.



Can we assume that Henry and Susanna may have been naming all of their children (or most of them) after ancestors named James, Henry, Elizabeth, Phillip, Edward and Soloman? It is an interesting thought, I suppose - if you are interested in Genealogy.

For anyone who might undertake the task of looking into the Larmon line - the following names have been taken from the Larmon Bible and family records:

William Wallace Larmon
5-1855

Elenor Larmon

Edward Loving Larmon

II. Henry Myers
8-20-1786 - 10-14-1846

Henry Myers, son of Phillip, was the first Myers born in Kentucky and the second generation Myers in Kentucky. He was born in Logan County near Russellville, and moved to Muhlenberg County in 1840. He held the office of Justice for several years, and had also been a surveyor for many years. There are indications that there were two Henry Myers in the area of Logan County during this time, one of whom is credited with having converted the "overshot" wheel to the "under-shot" wheel at the Grist mill on Clifty called "Cooksey's Mill". Exactly which Henry Myers did this is not known. Henry’s wife was Mary M. Rhoades, b. 4-23-1800 and d. 1-4-1862. She is buried at Myers Chapel cemetery in Muhlenberg County near her husband, Henry. There is a wrought iron fence around her grave. Since she died some time after Henry, she evidently ended up with the bulk of the money from the estate, because there are numerous land transactions recorded in the name of Mary M. Myers. Mary is a descendant of Heinrich Rhoades, which was a family of some renown. Heinrich came over from Germany in 1757 with two brothers. He had three sons, Daniel, Henry and David. Daniel had served in the Militia and Continental Army. Henry Rhoades was called the "Godfather of Muhlenberg Co.". Mary M. Came from this family. David Rhoades was her father. Mary first married Jacob S. Baker at the age of 15, and Jacob died two years later. Peter Baker was born 1818. Mary subsequently married Henry Myers and they had eight children:



Elizabeth Ann b. 1820 married Israel J. Baker

Soloman B. b. 1821 d. 2-23-1871 (father of our Wm Henry Myers)

James G. b. 1824 d. 7-8-1886 married Elizabeth Jane Willis

Mary Susan b. 1828 married Edward Kingsley in 1818.

Nancy C. b. 1835 married William Newman in 1853

Sara C. b. 1841 married Pineney Poole in 1858

Eliza Amanda married a Hughpeth

David Henry b.1838 d. 1919 married Martha Jane Martin



Elizabeth Ann married Israel J. Baker 10-2-1837 who was a brother to her mother's first husband. Israel was born 1817 and died of measles 10-26-1858 near Simmon's Chapel. He lived near Paradise, and they had a daughter Minerva who married Duff Greene Simmons. Israel was one of fourteen children born to Jacob Baker who was a grandson to Peter Stoddenbacher an immigrant who landed in Philadelphia in 1736.

Soloman B. is the father of William Henry Myers and grandfather to Herbert Myers. This line will be pursued in depth.

James. G. married Elizabeth Jane Willis 2-27-51. She was born 1828. He later married Sara Dill 12-28-72. There is a complete biographical sketch on him in Battle's History of Kentucky.

Mary Susan, born 1828, married Edward Kingsley who was b. 1818 in Mississippi. He lived in Rochester, Ky. Their children were Napolean B. Kingsley, b. 1845 and Della, b. 1847. Della married Joseph D. Yonst and their son was Morton K. Yonst.

Nancy C. Myers Born sometime around 1835. She married William G. Newman, 11-2-1853 - he was born around 1828.

Sara Myers There is no information on her at this time. b. @ 1841

Eliza Amanda Little or no information here - she married a Hughpeth.

David Henry Married Martha Jane (Mattie) Martin, He is the eighth of nine children born to Henry and Mary M. (Rhoads) Myers. He is also in Battle's History of Kentucky.

There is record of a Sara and a Sara C., It is not known if they are the same person of not. One may have died and they may have liked the name, then named another girl "Sara C."

Ron;
I am looking for my g.g. grand father's parents that came from Logan Co.,
Ky. & moved into Decatur Co., Indiana before 1840. I am looking for a
Jacob Myers or Myres who would have been born abt.1781.
Do you have any MYERS records back that far?
My g.g.grand father was Ananias Myers born abt. 1811 in Kentucky, moved to Decatur Co., Indiana, married there & moved to Missouri in mid 1850's.

There was a Jacob Myres in Decatur county in 1840 & 1850 that lived near him and would have been old enough to be his father but no proof.
Any help would be appreciated. Maybe we are even related?

Thanks
Harold Myers

In Reply to: Michael Nuse of Ohio by Don Coolidge of 24

My uncle, Frederick Cody Neus, was a member of the Nuse Family from Oldtown, Allegany County, MD. My uncle's grandfather lived in Frederick County, MD.

Their ancestors came from the Nuse River area of Europe. I have a small file of these Nuse (Neus) families, which contains no information of relevance to you. The two volume set, "History of Frederick County, Maryland" contains some references to the Nuse family who are not members of my uncle's family. You might post a query in Frederick County to elicit some information. Let me know if I can be of specific help.
