Surnames: Myers, Meijers, Harris, House
Sometime prior to 1820, the parents of James G. Myers immigrated to the USA from Germamy, via France to NY,USA. The family name might well have been spelled "Meijers", upon reaching the States, the spelling was changed to "Myers".

James G. Myers was born in NY, between 1817 - 1820; abt. 1848 or 49, he wed Sarah A. Harris (born in NY 1831-1833) in
Chenango Co., NY.

I find a US Census report NY, Oxforf Twp.,Chenango Co. dated 13 June 1860:
Lines 14-19, Dwelling 86, Family 86.
Myers, James G. 40 M, Farm Laborer,born NY (abt. 1820)
15 Sarah A. 27 F, Ny (abt. 1833)
16 Roxana 10 F, Atd. School NY (abt. 1850)
17 Esther 8 F, Atd. School NY (abt. 1852)
18 James 5 M,Atd. School NY(abt. 1855)
19. Susan E. 1 F, NY(abt. 1859)

1870 US Census NY,1st Elec. Dist. Norwich, Chenango Co.
dated 15 July 1870; Dwelling 218,Family 241 Lines 37-40 pg 29 and line 1 on page 30:

Family 242:

40 Esther, 22 FW,Keeps House, b. NY (abt. 1848)
Pg. 30:
0l House, LaMott, 1 MW, At home ,b. NY (abt. 1869)

1880 I've failed to locate either the Myers family or House family.

1900 US Census NY,Norwick twp., Chenango County dated
11 June 1900 Dist. 71, Dwelling 154, Family 161, address looks like 77 Silver St. Lines 6 and 7:

House, Charles E., Head, WM b. June 1845, 54 y, married 35y, born: NY, Father: NY, Mother: NY, Foreman, Planing Mill, can read and write, speaks English, Owns, Free, House

House, Esther, Wife, W F, b. Nov. 1847, 52 y, married 35 y,
Had one child, none living; born: NY, Father: NY, Mother: NY

So far I have been unable to locate the Charles and Esther House in 1910, 1920 or 1930 US Censuses.

Any help in tracing these branches of my husband's ancestry would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Please contact me at my email if you have any information on the above persons.
