HENRY MYERS (1777-1843) first appears in the public records in Augusta County, Virginia on the personal property tax lists in 1798 along with a Michael Myers who owned a tract of land adjoining Nicholas Trobaugh.

Henry moved to Greene County, Tennessee in 1803 according to tax records and War of 1812 bounty land application of Elizabeth Myers, widow of Henry. John Kerbaugh provided an affidavit that he was present when Henry and Elizabeth were married, and that they moved to Tennessee in about 1803 with two or three small children.

After the move to Tennessee, Henry was associated with a John Myers who married Cary Kerbaugh in 1808, and a Frederick Myers who married Mary Kerbaugh in 1810.

John Myers died in 1815 leaving daughters Polly Myers and Eliza Myers as his sole heirs. What happened to them?

Frederick Myers moved to Harrison County, Indiana where he died in 1856 leaving a large family.

The Michael Myers who owned land adjoining Nicholas Trobaugh back in Augusta County, Virginia sold that land to William Hogshead in 1802 and completely disappears from all records that I can find. Where did he go?

Any help appreciated.
