[p. 919] who resides on the old Myers homestead in Slippery Rock Township, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, is the owner of 125 acres of land and is a well-to-do farmer. He was born in the old house which formerly stood on this farm, April 17, 1855, and is a son of Samuel and Sarah (Rosabaugh) Myers.
Thomas Myers attended the public schools of Slippery Rock Township and engaged in farming on the home place until 1882. He then went to live with his father-in-law, John Leslie, who owned a farm in Slippery Rock Township, and continued there one year. He then successively rented the Joseph Monroe farm in Shenango Township, and the N. Frew farm, after which he moved to his present farm. Here he farmed for his father until the latter's demise, after which he farmed the place for himself, having inherited the 125 acres. The house and other buildings were erected by Samuel Myers, but Thomas has made various other important improvements, and has at the present one of the best appointed and kept farms in this section of the county. He follows general farming along modern ideas and is meeting with much success; he also engages in dairying quite extensively. He has wide acquaintanceship in this part of the county, and is held in high esteem.
In 1880 Mr. Myers was joined in marriage with Margaret Leslie, by whom he has nine children, as follows: George, who married Martha E. Munnel, and has a son, Clyde Leslie; Jessie, wife of Charles E. Riney, has two children, Margaret and Verna; Charles W., who married Daisy Shaffer and has a daughter, Frances Marie, and Harry, Cora, Martha, Lyda, Anna and Clara Belle. Politically, Mr. Myers is a Republican. In religious attachment he is a member of the Oak Grove United Presbyterian Church, to which his family also belongs.
