MEASE John, farmer; Sec. 5; P.O. Lanark.
MEYERS Elder Henry, (Deceased) who died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. U. W. Miller, was born near Berlin, Somerset Co., Pa., a little over eighty years ago, at which place he has a brother still living-Mr. Samuel Meyers. When about 21 years of age, he married Miss Anna Lichty, of the same Co., with whom he had sixteen children, twelve of whom grew to manhood and womanhood, married and raised families. His oldest child, Mrs. Sallie Livengood, now lives at Elklick, Pa.; Henry, Jr., and Michael Meyers, Mrs. A. Livengood, Mrs. Lichty and Mrs. Harrington, five in number, live in Carroll Co., Ill.; Joseph and Philip Meyers, Mrs. Nedrow, Mrs. Miller, and Mrs. Saylor live near this city. Mr. Meyers leaves nearly one hundred grandchildren, fifty great-grandchildren. He always showed untiring zeal in affiliating all these with the church of his choice the German Baptist, or Dunkard denomination- and very nearly succeeded in enlisting all of them when reaching mature years. Early in life he began preaching for this church. Soon after his marriage he removed from Berlin, to Milford, Pa., where at Middle Creek he preached to what became one of the largest and most influential congregations in that state. In accord with those days and places, Mr. and Mrs. Meyers, with the aid of the children

as they grew, hewed the trees and gathered the rocks, making a fine Pennsylvania farm in a solid wilderness.

While spiritual and temporal prosperity smiled upon the labors of this family, they determined, some thirty years ago, and before railroads were extensive, to remove to the then new country of Carroll Co., Ill., taking with them most of their children, nearly all the others following within a few years. Some of the journey was made by steamboat and some by wagon. At this place, deceased helped organize, and for about twenty years assisted in presiding over, what is now known as the Dutch Low Church in Illinois; he was a walking library; nine years ago some of the children moved to this Co. with their families, Father Meyer and his wife soon following, seeking wider fields of labor, even in advanced age. There was something very touching, indeed, in the mannor the people of that congregation bade adieu to his remains; how young and old always rejoiced to meet him with the name "grandfather," and how he labored untiringly for the peace and prosperity of his people. He exerted much influence in keeping all his posterity from commercial business and out of politics. With one single exception, all his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, are to day engaged in farming. We think it within bounds to say that over one hundred farms were opened and owned by himself and his descendants. His counsels to young and old in morals, business and religion were always highly respected by all. He retained his reason until his last moment, and departed with bright faculties for one so old. His wife, aged seventy seven, will spend her future with her children here. Her health and strength are yet good.

The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist Church, in this city, by the Rev. Joseph Lichty, of Brown Co., Kan., an old time friend of the deceased. The remains were interred at the church cemetery, north of town followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends.--The Richardson (Neb.) County Record.
