From the book, "Myers and Fishburn Families", 1969 by Vera Fishburn Myers Weaver and Alvin L. Weaver

Many Mayer-Meyer names appear on the records in Wurtemburg, Germany. From some of the early history of that Province we have learned that one 'Melchoir' Meyer (Myers), who was born 1495, was named Military Chief of the Free Imperial City of Ulm. Later mention of the Mayer-Meyer names indicates that many men of that name, or a spelling not too different, were military men. The services they gave must have been of some value for Emperor Maximilian granted the Mayer family it's "Coat of Arms" in 1570.


The following book was written and published in 1955 which, also, contains the Genealogy of Eichenberg and 'Myers'.

"A History and Genealogy of Peter Eichenberg Family", compiled by Charles S. Ikenberry and W. Lewis Eikenberry; Published by Charles S. and Margaret Ikenberry, printed by Church Center Press, 'Myerstown, PA'; copyright 1955
