"Montgomery H. Myers was born in Hamilton County, Ohio, January 10, 1837, and is a son of William A. and Ann Myers. William Myers was engaged in the manufacture of buttons, and during the last year of their stay in Ohio, Montgomery assisted him. When our subject was in his tenth year, the family moved to Lafayette, Indiana, where his father embarked in boat building. He attended school during his first year in Lafayette, and the following year worked in a paper mill. In 1849, they settled on a farm in Pine Township, Warren County. In Montgomery's twentieth year his father died, leaving him in care of the family.

In 1859, he married Miss Ellen McDade, and eleven children have blessed their union: H., Howard A., Emma E. and Walter B. For one year after marriage, he lived south of Oxford, Benton County, then for four years lived on the McConnel farm in the same county.

In 1863, his young brother having enlisted, he went back to the old home farm, where his mother and sister were living alone, and remained there four years. He then came to his present home in Prairie Township, where he had previously bought 160 acres of land. About ninety acres were fit for cultivation, the remainder being slough. He has ditched the wet land, and the whole farm is now in good condition.

In 1876, Mr. Myers lost his wife, and his daughters have since kept house for him. He was elected Justice of the Peace in 1878, and re-elected in 1882. He is a member of the Christian Church, and active in all good enterprises." - History of Benton, Jasper, Warren and Newton Counties, Indiana, 1883, page 211
