    • Michael Myers, "son of Abraham and Elizabeth (Delp) Myers, was born near Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, August 24th, 1803. Upon leaving school he chose the milling trade as his calling. After having served his apprenticeship of three years, he continued in the service of his old master for another term of five years. In 1827 he left his native home and state and moved to Canada and settled in the town of Waterloo where he was employed by the late Jacob S. Shoemaker (Mr. Shoemaker had rented the Waterloo Union Mills from Mr. Abraham Erb) as head miller. On October 11th, 1829, he was married to Mary (Polly), daughter of John and Mary (Shantz) Shoemaker. She was born May 28th, 1808. After their marriage they moved to Wilmot Township where he was engaged in farming for several years. In 1835 he was appointed as clerk of the township of Wilmot which position he held until his death which took place March 11th, 1879. They resided in the village of Baden where they possessed a beautiful home.
