Karen: I also had Myers ancestors in Philly at the turn of the century. My great-grandfather was George Myers and great-grandmother Mary Swift Myers. My grandmother was Bertha Myers Eberhard (born in 1906). I don't know that much about the Myers line. My great-grandfather George left (or was thrown out by his wife... family history has it that he was not faithful to her) when my grandmother was a small child. Apparently at the time of his disappearance there was a fire at the oil refinery where he worked, so he could have died in the fire.
Mary Swift Myers was left with several children to take care of and she took in washing to support the family. That's about all I know about the Myers'. I've been looking around on the net, but I haven't seen anything about this line. Hopefully we can make a connection somewhere. Please contact me at Mariannewrites@aol.com
