Ole Larson's Folks

Died in Falls City, Nebraska, on this date in 1922: Martha Ann Myers (m. Weaver). Her relationship is quite distant, at first cousin 3x removed, but she was the keeper of some important Myers memorabilia, including letters and documents of the Myers family dating back to 1828. These are now in the custody of her great-granddaughter Melinda Morgan of Illinois, at whose home I had the privilege of examining and photographing some of them. At top, detail from a painting of the Madison Myers home in Pennsylvania. Below: first page of a journal detailing an overland journey from Pennsylvania to Maryland by members of the Myers family, written in 1828.1828 Journal
