About Elias Meyer-

Elias Meyer immigrated on the ship William & Sarah, arriving in Philadelphia on 18 Sep 1727, and containing "109 Palatines, who with their families, making in all about 400 persons." Elias Meyer is listed as "3 1/2 persons". Other Myers on the ship include Tonicus, 5 persons, Henry, 4 persons, and Jacob, 2 persons. He took his oath of allegiance on 21 Sep 1727. This Elias Meyer is listed in two of Annette Burgert's works: N. Kraichau and Eppingen.
also Pennsylvania German Pioneers by Strassberger and Hinke; Gen Pub. Co., Inc. 1980 p.8

In 1735 Elias had his son Peter baptized in Muddy Creek Lutheran Church, then in Earl Twp, now in East Cocalico Twp.

On 17 Nov 1744 he received a Patent for 136 acres land in Earl Twp - see releases to his sons below.

On 28 Dec 1752 Elias Meyer bought land from Emanuel Harmon, also in Earl Twp, Lancaster County.

On Feb 6 1753, Elias is one of three deacons in the Bergstrasse Lutheran Church, Earl Twp, who perform a Baptism of two adult sisters, Philipina Meterin and Elizabeth Mercklerin, daughters of Philip Matter (Lancaster Co Ch Records, v7, State Library, Harrisburg)

Elias Meyer Senr appears in the Earl Twp tax lists from 1750 (the earliest
list at the PA Archives) through 1760 (last available until 1769). He consistently owns 100 acres and a grist mill. His sons Elias Jr and Peter each hold the same amount of land. However in Dec 1761 he prepares a release of 100 acres to each of them, perhaps in return for payment of a debt for purchase of the stated acreage.

Elias Meyer Senr of Earl Twp "enfeoffed and released to his son" Elias Meyer
Jr, Miller, in consideration of 470 pounds, 100 acres in Earl Twp, adjoining land of Peter Moyer, late Abraham Derr, late Jacob Reed. Ref. Patent 17 Nov 1744 to Elias Meyer. Dated 10 Dec 1761, witnesses Paul Guhr, Martin Breneisen. Elias Mayer affirmed 2 Jan 1762. Recorded 19 Dec 1766, Lancaster County Book H, #354 (Lanc. Co Deed Abstracts of Book A-K).

Elias Meyer and wife Barbara, "release to son Peter Moyer" in consideration
of 136 pounds, 100 acres in Earl Twp, adjoining land of Jacob Brotherly, Abraham Derr, John Moyer, Martin Brown. Ref. part of Patent 7 Oct 1749 to Martin Martin which was granted 29 Apr 1749 to Emanuel Harmon, which he and wife Anna Maria granted on 28 Dec 1752 to Elias Meyer. Part of Patent of 136 acres of 16 Nov 1744 to Elias Meyer. Dated 27 Nov 1760, witnesses Michael Oberlin, Vincent Moyer, Henry Caffroth. Elias Meyer affirmed 2 Jan 1762. Recorded 24 Sep 1766, Lancaster Co Book H #355 (Lanc. Co Deed Abstracts of Book A-K).

Based on the four year delay in recording and then the timely recording of both releases, its possible that Elias died in or before Sep 1766.

Due to John Moyer and Vincent Moyer's reference in the above release, its very possible they are also sons of Elias. Elias Jr, Peter and John all live on adjacent land. Lancaster County Deed Bk C, #18, shows Vincent's wife is Ann.
