I am part of the Myers branch. Is there any chance at all that Lewis Miller, the father-in-law to Thomas A Edison is part of the tree.
It would explain alot if this was so. At least from the Myers point of view of Catholic John Jacob Myers who is in the book.
Before you answer this. My research is on the Abolitionist of UPState NY who seems to have some sort of connection to Millersburg PA. They are Catholic and Methodist Abolitionist who were connected to William H Seward and his granddaughter-in-law Pittsburgh socialite Anna Myers Seward.
