"Michael Meyer, a brother of Lewis, was born on January 7, 1862, within one-half mile of the place where he now lives. Michael was educated in the common schools of South Gate, and has at all times found opportunities in plenty without leaving the neighborhood. Buying eighty acres of his present place in 1849, he has since accumulated one hundred and sixty acres. In 1914 he erected a tobacco barn, in which the tobacco raised on the place, is cured. Although specializing to a certain extent in tobacco, Mr. Meyer also carries on general farming. Phillip lives in Cincinnati, having moved there from Brookville seven years ago. ... Michael Meyer and Mary Meyer were united in marriage in November, 1887. Mary Meyer is the daughter of Jacob and Ferona (Andrews) Meyer, the former being born in Germany and the latter in Dearborn county, Indiana. The Catholic church at Cedar Grove has the steady support of Lewis Meyer and his brother Michael, and they exhibit those solid qualities at all times which are peculiar to Teuton blood, namely, thoroughness, industry and an intelligent interest in all questions vital to the public welfare."
