Notes for Peter Myer:
Source: Information on children is from family bible; reported by Edith M. Chastain
(edithmariec@earthlink.net)

His character complified that word integrity, and that word describes him
perfectly. He was honest, jealous of his good name, and would not do a thing that
he knew would be wrong; no difference what pressure was brought to bear on him.
One of his sayings was, "I can see deep into the millstone as the man that picts it."
Meaning, that he could see the object of the person trying to influence him. He
stood firmly against wrong. Another of his maxime was this, "If you have someting
to do, do it now, for what you think is time enough will always prove to be little
enough."
He had firmness of character, yet he had a tender heart.
Proof of this is a story handed down in the family:
This incident occurred while he still lived in Pennsylvania. A very needy family
living near them had borrowed and borrowed, never paying back, till grandfather
concluded, "Forbearance had ceased to be a virtue," so he told his wife to quit
letting them have. They came to borrow salt soo, but were refused. I expect
Peter's conscience troubled him fo after eating his supper we went over to this
neighbors. He found the family gathered around the supper table. There was
nothing on the table but a dish of mush. The children were crying and refused to
eat the mush. He asked the mother why they would not eat it. She said, "I had no
salt and they won't eat it because it is not salted. He couldn't stand that and told
mother to send to his house in the morning and get salt, and then went home and
told his wife to let them have it as he couldn't bear to see little children refuse to
eat mush for the want of salt, especially when mush was all they had to eat.

As further proof of his tender heart, he could not bear to make anything suffer.
So when there was a mutton to be killed, he would tie the sheep up and turn his
back while grandmother chopped its head off. Now don't say he hid behind his
wife's petticoats, for she was always ready to do a thing, if necessary. As we say
now, "She had her nerve." Quietness was another of his characteristics. In fact of
all the Myers they were never demonstrative. When sorrow comes to them, they
endured in silence, but oh, their sad faces revealed their sufferings.
His death occurred, April 5, 1856, at his home near where Blue River Church now
stands in Marion (Union) Township, Shelby County, IN.

As the story goes, in the spring of the year 1830, Peter lost his farm by an old
soldiers claim, as it is always expressed. I regret that I do not know what war
these soldiers had fought in more by what authority they were granted the
privilege of selecting a farm as a recompense for their services. It is said that as
it may, Peter's farm was chosen by one of them. This left him at the bottom of the
ladder which he was compelled to climb again. One day they saw a man walking
around over Peter's farm inspecting it one spring morning in 1830. Presently he
came to the well to get a drink and sat down on the well curb to rest. He told Peter
he had chosen his farm. Peter then decided to come west to start this climb. We
don't know how many families joined him in this move but am sure there were some.

They started west in the fall of 1830. The children of the wagon party would get
tired of riding and would get out of the wagons and run away ahead and play at the
roadside till the wagons caught up, then run ahead again. In this way the children
walked a good part of the way to Indiana. Coming across Ohio they encountered
now crushed stone roads which wore their cattle's feet till they were so sore they
had to have the cattle shod as they did the horses. This is the way the roads were
being built; Men were sitting along the road at intervals by piles of stone, crushing
the stones with hammers. One overseer was inspecting the work to see that each
piece was small enough to pass through a two inch ring.

When they reached Indiana, they first lived in the edge of Rush County, but not for
long. Their next location was South of Ray's Crossing in a German neighborhood.
Later they moved from Ray's Crossing, then called the Berman Settlement, to the
home near the Blue River Chapel. We think this was around 1837. Peter and
Susannah both died at their home on this farm and their boddies are interred in
the Blue River Chapel Cemetery adjoining their farm.

Notes for Susannah Bardell:
Susannah Bardell possess strong will power and self control, If an unpleasant task
confronted her she just kept her nerved and did it. But she was possessed of a
sense of honor, as a little incident, for which we are indebted to Cousin Marshall,
shows. This is it, but first I must tell you that Susannah was at the head of
Peter's household after the death of his first wife, Marshal and Levi's mother.
One day, Peter told Susannah he was going away on an errand. Seh told him to be
back by twelve o'clock as dinner would be ready then. He overstayed the time one
hour. Susannah met him in the yard and taking off her sunbonnet, switched him
over the head with it, which shows that a little fun now and then is relished by the
best of men. She was kind and helpful in her neighborhood. When there was
sickness and trouble in the neighborhood "Aunt Susie" as she was familiarly called,
was sent for. Why that name, "Aunt Susie" just radiates kindness.

Susannah Bardells ancestry was English and French.

Notes for Eli Myer:
History of Livingston County
   Eli Myer was born to John Myer and Ann Charity Wire Myer in Alleghany county,
Maryland on October 18, 1796. He had ten brothers and sisters; John, William,
Jacob, Peter, David, Elizabeth, Susannah, Sarah, Mary, and Elijah. Eli married
Susan McDaniel who died in 1830. From this union they had five children: Margaret
Ann, John Asa, Matilda Jane, Martin Henry and Samuel James. On the 12th of
April 1831 Eli married Catherine Umphenour to whom were born eight children;
Emily, William, Joseph E., Matilda, Benjamin, Samuel G., Charles F. and Nelson Jay.
   In 1832 he left Maryland for the "west" traveling into Ohio where he engaged in
farming until 1850. On October 25, 1850 he reached Eppards Point Township where
he entered a clain for the first quarter section of land entered at the grove in this
township. He added tohis holdings until he owned 478 acres which he willed to his
children at his death.
   When the Myer family arrived in Eppards Point it was not the garden spot it is
today. They found the township an open prairie containing but two other families
who were located at some distance along the grove. Their principle market was
Ottawa to which they made many trips in a wagon over prairie roads, fording
streams. At first they occupied a house which was 14 by 16 ft. and built of logs.
They added to this and then built a frame house.
   Eli was well known over a large territory as a man of great public spirit who took a
keen interest in the general welfare of his fellow man, assisting many of his
hospitality, counsel and encouragement. He held the office of associate Judge for
several years and later after the township was organized that of supervisor and
clerk. He also taught the first school held in Eppards Point.
   On November 16, 1861 Eli and others organized a church at Ocoya, holding the
services in the school house. Eli Myer served as a deacon in this church until the
time of his death. After organizing the church they began at once to plan the
erection of a church building and in his will he provided a gift of six hundred dollars
to be used for the purpose. He died on the 30th of December 1868 at the age of
seventy-two years.
   On the farm where Fred Harold Seeman, a great-great-grandson of Eli, now lives
in section 29 of Eppards Point Township you can still see the old prairie trail which
led through this farm and the ford where they crossed Rooks Creek. The large
rock just east of the ford is where the women washed their wool, dried it and spun
it into thread to weave for clothing and blankets.
   Long before the close of the nineteenth century the descendants of Eli Myer
began plans for the first annual Myer Family reunion. It was though appropriate to
begin these gathersing by hoding the first one at the "Old Home" onthe one
hundredth anniversary of the birth of Eli Myer. for some reason however this plan
was not realized as no reunion was held until October 18, 1902; this being the 106th
anniversary of his birth.
  Eli's son Samuel G. Myer had a son, Joseph G. who married Mary Smith. They had
four children; Florence Aldine, Cliffort Joseph and twins, Merle Roland and Myrtle
Belle. Myetle Bell Myer married Fred Louis Seeman on Nov. 26, 1925. they had
four children.
  Nature and farming is taking away what is left of the prairie trail, but at the ford
in the creek many generations of children have had many good times playiing on the

Ontheir farm in section 20 of Eppards Point Township you can find the well from
the homestead of Eli Myer, a man whose courage, hospitality, industry, and
integrity won for him the love and respect of his neighbors and friends, and set a
high standard for us who should follow after him. - By Dottie Seeman

----------------------------------------------
Eli's son, Franklin, had all of these dates in his family bible. Mrs. I. M. Carmony
also supplied the same years for birth of the children: but not month and day. Both
sources put the marriage of John and Annie in 1778. Marriage dates of William,
Peter & Eli are from family records, the others from Cumberland and Frederick
Court house records. Evidently Jacob, David, Susanna, and Elijah died in infancy.

Born on a farm north of Cressaptown, Allegheny Co., Md. about 5 miles from
Cumberland.
Eli had only three months of formal education in his life. He educated himself while
working at a loom in his home, keeping his book beside him as he worked. He married
Susan McDaniel with whom he had 5 children, 2 of which lived to adulthood.
Married Catherine Umphenour after the death of his first wife and shortly after
the birth of their first child in May 1831, moved by covered wagon to Licking Co.,
Ohio where six of his next seven children were born. In 1848 he rode with his
father-in-law (Abraham Umphenour) to Illinois to see land. They were helping
Thomas Craycroft move to Danville and stopped there at the land office, making
claim to farms for himself and a number of his adult sons in Eppards Point Twp.,
Livingston Co. The entire family moved there the following year - including the
children who had been left in Maryland.
Eli- occupation: farmer, Justice of the Peace, school teacher.



He became a leading citizen of the local community becoming Justice of the Peace
and forming the first school in the Twp., which was held in his own home. His home
measured 14 x 16. It had a loft for sleeping purposes - for the two parents and
eight children. They always had room for travelers over night and shared what they
had with others.
In 1853 the settlers got together and cut logs for a school house, and raised the
new school along Rooks Creek. It was covered with shakes held in place by weight
poles, had a sturdy wooden door and a box stove for warnth, a luxury in those days.

He served several terms as an Associate Judge with B.P. Babcock and John Darnall.
It was while he was Associate Judge that the first brick courthouse was built in
Livingston County. At the same time they were instrumental in contacting a bridge
to be built over the Vermillion River.

He was a founding member of the Ocoya Baptist Church, organized Nov. 16, 1861.
It was held in the school house.
He had 3 sons fighting for the Union in the Civil War and apparently also nephews
who fought for the Confederacy for Virginia. He lived in Livingston Co., until his
death in 1868.



In 1930 Myer Reunion notes, it was noted that Eli Myer had 186 known
descendants, 13 children, 37 grandchildren, 79 great grandchildren, 56 gr. great
grandchildren, and 2 gr. gr. great grandchildren. Of his sons, only Charlie (age. 83)
was still living.

Last evening at approximately 6 o'clock, Mr. Isaiah Myer, father of police
magistrate R.C. Myer died at his home on West Wilson St. at the advanced age of
80 years. Two years ago Mr. Myer slipped and fell on the snow in front of Wilson's
bank and broke his leg. He never recovered from this injury and his constitution
was rapidly undermined. Since that time he has never left home and was for the
most part confined to his bed. One of the oldest and most respected of the
citizens of Streator, Mr. Myer had a host of friends, those of his earlier life having
preceded him to his grave. Services at 9 o'clock tomorrow from the residence on

Notes for Charles Francis Myer:
Occupation: farmer.
Came to Livingston Co., Illinois from Licking Co., Ohio as a small child and was raised
on the Eli Myer farm. As a child, he lost 2 fingers from his right hand when his
brother Sam thought he would move his hand while he was chopping corn. Although
he had two brothers who fought in the Civil War, his missing fingers and his youth
prevented his participation. He related that when the family first moved to the
township, his Uncle Sam walked him down to the timber and showed him an old
Indian wigwam and a large mound of ricks that the Indians used as a stove.

After his father's death in 1868, he took over the farm, farming it until his
retirement in 1916. He lived with his son Harry for a while after retiring, but could
not get along with his son's mother-in-law, Alice Smith, who was also living there, so
he lived for some years in the 20's with Sherman Myer. He moved back about 1930
and lived with his son until his death.

                   Death Claims Mrs. Walker
                   Well Known Woman Passes Away At St. Mary's Hospital

                   Death yesterday afternoon clamed Mrs. Edith Walker at St. Mary's
                   hospital at 3:50. Mrs. Walker had been sick about two years but her
                   death yesterday was a profound shock to the family and her many friends.
                   The deceased had spent her entire life in this city, and since the death of
                   her husband, Henry Walker , had lived with her parents, Mr. and Mrs.
                   Amos Connor. Mrs. Walker's mother, Mrs. Connor, passed away several
years ago, however amid much sorrow, especially on the part of the
daughter, who was a very close companion to the mother.
              Useful Life
Mrs. Walker lived and had such a useful life, her friends could not believe
at first that she was sick. She was very active, efficient and in the
neighborhood which she lived had no small reputation as a wonderful
housekeeper. She was born in Manville, Dec. 15, 1876. Twenty three
years ago she was united in marriage to Henry Walker who preceded her
in death. Two children, Mrs. Stella Belle Ryan of Ransom, and Lawrence
Walker of this city survive. The deceased was a member of the
Methodist Church. Amos Connor, her father, and these brothers and
sisters survive: Florence and Grace Wisher of Moline; Wayne, Sam,
Edward, and Earl Connor of this city and Stella Notman of Maywood.
funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 from 117 West
Kent street. Rev. Connor will read the service and burial will be made in
Riverview. Mrs. Walker's death has caused a great deal of sorrow in this
city. She had many friends who join in giving sympathy to the family and
in grieving over the loss of a beautiful soul.

* Edie Walker Branz, said her grandmother had died of pernicious anemia.

Notes for Henry Walker:
1997-( Grandson), Dale Walker reported that Henry's partner shot him.
Henry died from blood loss - fatal wound. The partner went to jail and
years later came back to Streator and Henry's son, Lawrence Walker
hired him at Anthony's (truck lift gate manufacturing co. where Lawrence
worked as a foreman.)

Grandpa (Lawrence) Walker didn't talk about his father much. He
apparently drank heavily and was abusive to his wife, Edith. He left his
family and offered little or no support. There is no evidence that they
divorced.

Henry was returned to Streator, IL and interred at Riverside (now called

    239. William Austin7 Myer (Robert Courtney6, Isaiah5, William4, John Henry3,
Christopher Christian Jr.2, Christian Sr.1) was born 23 Feb 1860 in Blackstone,
Livingston Co., IL, and died 27 Aug 1942 in Coral Gables, Dade Co., Fla.. He married
Agnes McCormick. She was born in Strawn, Livingston Co., IL.

Notes for William Austin Myer:
Lived in Chicago at the time of his mother's death.
William Austin Myer was quite well known as a world leading lightweight boxer in his
prime. He was known as the "Streator Cyclone". He got into this by accident. He
accompanied the Streator Militia to Springfield, Illinois for the annual encampment
in July, 1881. He was an affable young man but he was sitting watching the military
excercises when a Springfield bully came up to him and said, "I hear your name is
Myer and that you're quite a slugger," then made an insulting remark about
Streator and struck Billy between the eyes while he was still sitting. Billy then
"struck an attitude" in an instant and with one punch the bully was lying on the
ground unconscious. Billy ordered a hack and had the man taken home . After
hearing this, Streator businessmen hounded him to go professional. He eventually
gave in and won many rich purses and a gold buckle. He was buddies with Diamond
Jim and Lillian Russell and other notables of the times. When he fought his last
championship in New Orleans in 1892, he was sick , and lost. He ended his career
right then and there. He later became a horse track superintendent and was known
for his expert groundskeeping. He invented a number of machines for track
maintenance and remodeled the Saratoga, harlem tracks in Illinois, Hawthorne,
Rockingham, Fort Erie in Canada, Hot Springs, Ideal in Milwaukee, Fairgrounds in
New Orleans, and wound up in Coral Gables, Florida. He retired and lived there at
the time of his death.

Billy Myer, "The Streator Cyclone

By Mark Dunn
In the Golden Age of boxing there were few fighters who matched William Austin
(“Billy”) Myer for power or character. Billy Myer was of Prussian descent. His
earliest identified ancestor, Christopher Myer, came to America in about 1710 and
his great grandfather Christopher Myer, Jr. fought with George Washington at
Valley Forge. The Myer family was frequently on the move and in 1848 Billy’s
grandfather and father moved from West Virginia to the hardscrabble area around
Ottawa, Illinois. Over the years the family relocated several times. After Ottawa
they moved to a postage stamp located in the northwest corner of Livingston
County, Illinois know as Blackstone. A water stop on the Illinois, Iowa and Indiana
R. R. In the late 1870s, the Myer family moved to Streator, Illinois and that town
became Billy’s home.

Billy’s father was a carpenter by profession. Billy was born February 23, 1860 as
the fourth child (but first boy) in a family of eleven children. Streator was a
rapidly growing coal mining town in the 1880s. There was a string of coal towns near
Streator including Spring Valley, Braceville, and Braidwood. A substantial seam of
coal had been found outcropping along the bank of the Vermillion River - a glorified
creek that dribbles through Streator on its way to the Illinois River. The discovery
of coal ballooned the population of Streator to nearly eighteen thousand in the mid-
1880s and many of them were immigrant miners from central Europe and Italy. The
people of these towns were not very attentive to the Victorian ideals of older
Illinois farm communities and it actively promoted boxing and wrestling even
electing Billy’s father Police Magistrate in the late 1880s.

It isn’t very clear how Billy became interested in boxing. A family story traces his
interest to an incident in Springfield, Illinois in July of 1881. It is said that Billy
had followed a troupe from Streator to Springfield to watch their show. A local
tough made the mistake of approaching Billy as he sat quietly on the curb watching
the performance. The tough allegedly asked Billy if he thought he was a tough guy,
uttered a slur about Streator, and then slugged Billy in the face. Supposedly, Billy
stood up, knocked his assailant cold with one blow and then paid for a cab to take
him home unconscious. Billy’s longtime backer, Alf Kennedy, told a newspaper
reporter that he was the one who suggested that Billy should get involved in boxing.
Kennedy was a big man and he claimed that he had been wrestling with Billy
sometime in the early 1880s when he realized how strong he was and then
suggested that Billy consider prizefighting. A third story is that Billy decided to
participate in a local amateur tournament sponsored by Parson Davies and rolled
through the competition. A final story was that Billy attended a prize fight where
one of the participants failed to show. When the call was made for volunteers Billy
came forward. Even though he weighed only about 112 pounds and was substantially
outweighed by his opponent he held his own and was credited with the victory.
What is known is that after moving to Streator in the late 1870s, Billy’s father
built a barn behind the family’s home on LaSalle Street where Billy and his younger
brothers Sam and Ed sparred with each other and with other local talent foolish
enough to come in for a set-to.

Myer vs. Welch

Billy began his rise to prominence in 1895 when he knocked out Paddy Welch in
Sreator in thirty two seconds of the first round. Welch was either from
Braidwood or south Chicago (depending on which news account you accept) and had
carried the title of Lightweight Champion of Illinois. Billy had been receiving some
training from Arthur Magesty a journeyman lightweight fighter from Bloomington
who had fought Tommy Warren several times. Billy’s quick victory was said to be a
surprise and Welch claimed that he had been the victim of a “lucky punch” and
demanded a rematch. As with other fighters to follow, the demand for a rematch
with Billy was a mistake. Their second fight was for a $1,000 was held in
Braidwood, Illinois. Half-ounce gloves were used. Three train car loads of Streator
fight fans poured into Braidwood to watch the fight to the finish. They backed
Billy with $5,000 of local money. Magesty and a local heavyweight fighter, George
Mulvey, acted as Billy’s seconds. Alf Kennedy who owned a saloon in Streator was
Billy’s financial backer. Owen Lee Cheney, a Bloomington fight promoter who would
later play a prominent role in Billy’s career, acted as Master of Ceremonies. After
chasing Welch around the ring for two rounds, Billy caught up with him in the third
and again laid Welch out dislocating Welch’s shoulder in the process. So much for
the “lucky punch” excuse.

This internet source; http://cyberboxingzone.com/boxing/wail900_dunn.htm -
had the following information (and more) of interest:
He stayed in New York until at least June of 1889 and was accepted as an all around
good fellow”. At the time of the Johnstown flood, he was reported to have
contributed to the Johnstown relief fund.

By October 1889, Billy was back in Illinois but was relocating from Streator to
Bloomington.
A short time later he signed on with Lee Cheney. This was probably not a good
move for Billy. Cheney put together a variety show consisting of piano players, club
swingers, a ventriloquist, and other acts that culminated with an interview with and
fight demonstration by Billy. Their act was not well received and they were
essentially booed off the stage when they appeared in Peoria in November 1889.
Their act "didn’t play in Peoria". During this same period, Myer suffered some
physical problems including a bout with malaria and an attack of neuralgia.
In early 1890, Cheney began to finally book some additional fights for Myer. One
fight took place as a rematch with Jack Hooper. On April 30, 1890 in Alexandria,
Virginia. Hooper was dispatched with a KO in the sixth round. It appeared that
Billy was rounding into form. However, during the Hooper fight Billy injured or
broke his right arm. In the meantime, Cheney had booked him for a fight only
three weeks later with Andy Bowen a New Orleans lightweight and a comer.

Myer traveled from Virginia to New Orleans and soon thereafter contracted some
local malady that was probably akin those suffered by modern day travelers to
Mexico. He was weak before the fight began and wrote to a friend that he should
not be attempting to fight again because he was sick and out of condition. It is
hard to know exactly what happened in this fight. I suspect that Cheney, knowing
that Billy was injured and sick, may have bet against his own fighter.

Cheney, Billy Myer’s manager, threw up the sponge before the twenty-ninth round
was called and the fight was awarded to Bowen.

After the fight, Cheney claimed that he was worried that Billy could not finish the
fight because of his injured arm. Cheney then gave Billy $65.00 and left for
Bloomington claiming that he was dropping out of the fight game for good. A
benefit was planned for Myer in New Orleans but the Mayor refused to let it go
forward. Billy and his brother Ed (who had been beat up during the fight by New
Orleans “fans”) then took a slow boat up the Mississippi River and then headed back
to Streator by train. Billy refused to say much about Cheney when they reached
home, but his brother said Cheney’s decision to throw in the sponge came without
any consultation with Billy or his seconds.

Myer’s career drifted around after his fight with Bowen. However, his name was
still a drawing card and he was matched to fight Jack McAuliffe a second time with
their fight to be on the evening of September 5, 1892. At this point, Billy was
thirty-two years of age and Jack was seven years younger. Billy was past his prime
and I really can’t bring myself to write too much about this fight which has been
reported on by Tracy Callis in his excellent article about Jack. Jack supposedly won
$25,000 in this second fight. The next day he acted as John L. Sullivan’s second in
his fight with Jim Corbett and promptly lost it all when he bet on John L. Suffice
it to say that Billy was knocked out in the fifteenth round and, as a practical
matter, his status as a leading lightweight contender was ended.

Post Script

It isn’t fair to Billy Myer to leave a report about him with a loss to Jack McAuliffe.
William Austin Myer was a remarkable man. He was arespectful son. His was a
close family member and throughout his life his best friends were his brothers Ed
and Sam. Myer was well read and spent at least two hours every day reading
several newspapers and novels. When he lived in Bloomington he would walk to
Illinois State Normal University to meet with a professor there who taught Greek
and Latin. He enjoyed the conversation and would sometimes spar with that
teacher. He was an inventor. As reported above, he experimented with using
electrical impulses in his training as early as 1888 and later in life was credited with
inventing several pieces of race track maintenance equipment.

After his fight career Billy knocked around for a few years. He managed a hotel in
Peoria for a year or so and then went to Chicago where John Condon engaged Billy
and his brother Sam to build the Harlem race track. With this venture, Myer found
is niche in life. He and Sam they built a track at Hot Springs, Arkansas and another
track at New Orleans. Sam dropped out of the business for personal reasons but
Billy continued on by building a private race track for the Sinclair family in New
Jersey and remodeling tracks at Saratoga, Hawthorne, Illinois, Rockingham Park,
Fort Erie, Canada, Washington and Arlington Parks in Illinois, the Milwaukee fair
grounds, and Tropical Park at Coral Gables, Florida. Along the way he and his son
ran a training facility at Red Bank, New Jersey where Gene Tunney trained for his
fight with Dempsey.

There is a 1941 photograph of Billy (then known only as “Dad”). He was then eighty-
one and astride an iron-gray pony, smoking a cigar and looking out with approval at
his work in Florida . He died August 27, 1942 in Coral Gables. The world was a
poorer place with his passing.
 __________________________

* I began reading about boxing in Illinois while doing research about my great
grandfather, Richard T. Dunn who once fought and exhibition against Patsy Cardiff.
Cheney promoted that match and along the way I started reading about Billy Myer
and couldn’t stop. Along the way I encountered Tracy Callis who is, in my opinion,
the expert of boxing in the 1880s and 90s. By chance I came across Samuel Myer’s
great granddaughter, Marianne Parmele of Dublin, Texas who has provided priceless
information about her family. Thanks to both of them.
