Lieut Milton H. Myers
Birth: Nov. 7, 1841
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 12, 1942
Barrington
Cook County
Illinois, USA

Milton H. Myers enlisted at age 18 as a Pvt. in Co. K 110 Ohio Infantry on Nov 13, 1864, and after several promotions, he attained the rank of 1st Lt. on May 31, 1865. A newspaper article reads in part: He died a few days after his 101st birthday at the Barrington Rest Home where he was a resident. His slight figure, dressed in in a faded blue uniform, was viewed by hundreds as it lay in state at the Park Ridge Methodist Church where the services were conducted by the Reverend T. Harry Kelly. Five Civil War comrades, all more than 100 year's of age, stood at the Town of Maine Cemetery gravesite as Capt. Thomas Ambrose, commander of the G.A.R. Memorial Association of Illinois, draped the coffin with the American flag, and read the prayer of the G.A.R. With full military honors, he was laid to rest next to his wife, Mary, who had predeceased him in 1939. Present, were his two sons, Walter R., a professor at the University of Minnesota, and Arthur L. of Park Ridge. An American Legion squad fired a last salute.
