Query: Amos Myers, Morgan County

            This query concerns Amos Myers (b. 1800, Davidson Co., N.C.-d. abt. 1880, Ray Township, Morgan Co., IN). He is buried in Gosport Cemetery, Owen Co., IN. Based on land records, he moved from Rowan Co., N.C. to Indiana about 1827 and purchased land in Morgan and Owen counties. He married his wife Sarah in Rowan Co., N.C. in 1819, and his second wife Julia A. Browder in Indiana in 1858 in Morgan Co., Indiana.

            I am seeking any further information on Amos, but specifically a record or other documentation connecting him with his son, Alfred Myers. Alfred was born in Indiana about 1831, presumably in Morgan or Owen County, moved to Texas in the 1850s, then on to Kansas, then back to IL. He died in 1876 in Jasper Co., IL.
            Any advice on where to find information connecting Amos to his son Alfred or information as to who may be able to help me would be welcome. I am happy to share my research on this Myers family, which I have documented as far as Revolutionary War patriot and Indiana Pioneer Jacob Myers (b. ca. 1735, Germany-d. 1838, Franklin Co., IN). Thank you.
