Looking for death dates of Jacob & Martha MYERS. Both were born in Virginia in the 1830's. They moved to Greenbrier some time after 1880. I have found them in Falling Springs, Greenbrier Co. in the 1900 & 1910 census but after that they disappear. Age wise they may have died but I can not find any record of it. They were not rich nor did they own land so those records are out. I know their son John married Sarah HAWLEY; George married Mary SMITH, second he married Nora BYRD, third Susan MITCHELL; Oscar married Martha E. CONADO.
