"Isaac Myers was born in Sycamore Township, Hamilton County, May 31, 1807, and was the son of Joseph Myers and Ruth Shuff who were emigrants from Maryland. He attended one of the old-fashioned school-houses in which the seats were fashioned of logs. He was brought up from his earliest recollection as a farmer, but at seventeen learned the trade of a shoemaker. He was married November 7, 1827 to Eliza Gray, who was born in Fleming County, Kentucky in 1806. They were the parents of six children. Charles H. was born July 3, 1828. He now lives in Illinois. William, who died at the age of twelve, was born January 15, 1830. Joseph was born April 12, 1832, and now lives in Hamilton County. Eliza A., the wife of William Parker, and a resident of Kansas, was born January 15, 1835; Jacob was born December 25, 1837, living at present in Union Township. Isaac was born November 12, 1844. He enlisted in the Fall of 1862 in Sixty-ninth Regiment, participating in numerous battles, and serving until the close of the war. He died November 21, 1879, being the father of three sons. Mrs. Myers, the mother of these children, died September 12, 1870.
"After marriage, Mr. Myers remained in Sharon until coming to Butler County, in the spring of 1835, settling upon the farm he still owns, on Section 16, Union Township. It had a log house upon it, which is still standing, and had been partially improved. It was previously owned by John Cox. In the Spring of 1836 he went to Westchester, where he owned a tannery and conducted a boot and shoe business jointly with farming. He was in the village seven years, and then returned to the farm. The log cabin was used as a dwelling until he built his present residence, about 1847. His place consists of one hundred forty acres, under good cultivation. He has been overseer of the poor for five years."
