The son of David & Lydia (Barner) Myers, in 1860 he was a laborer living in Rich Creek Township, Clinton County, Pennsylvania. He stood 5' 7" tall and had light hair and blue eyes. He married Mary Jane Allen May 1, 1861, in Mill Hall, Clinton County, and fathered John Ewing (b. 01/30/61), Virie Edith (12/31/63 - married E. T.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted and mustered into federal service at Williamsport, Lycoming County, July 18, 1864, as a private with Co. A, 87th Pennsylvania Infantry, but did not join the regiment for duty until October 17. Two days later, he was shot in the left leg at the battle of Cedar Creek but eventually returned to duty. To make the pain of military service even worse, by April 20, 1865, he had yet to receive his first pay. He honorably discharged with his company June 29, 1865.

His surname was also spelled "Meyer" and his death certificate spells it "Myars." He died in Flemington, Clinton County, from the effects of "diabetes mellitus" and according to his death certificate is buried in Flemington Cemetery.
