bullet Andrew MYERS was born @1754 in Germany. He died @1840s in prob. Jeddore. Andreas Meyer, known as Andrew Myers in Nova Scotia, was born not later than 1754 in Germany, according to a petition to the Royal Council of South Carolina dated 1 Dec 1772 in which he states that he was a poor German who came to South Carolina with the assistance of the British Crown but had not received any grant of land up to that time. He very probably was a lad under 12 years of age making up a part of the Myers family that arrived in Charleston on the Frankland in mid-January 1766, sailing from Rotterdam. He was granted 100 acres in District 96 in 1772, then the allotment for a single person.

At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, he owned 400 acres in District 96, of which he had cleared about twelve acres. When the British reoccupied South Carolina in 1780, Andrew Myers (recorded as Andrew Miers, Jr.) enlisted as a private in Capt. Henry Rudolph's Company, Col. John Cotton's Regiment of the Stevenson's Creek Militia, 96 Brigade, then based at Dorchester, South Carolina, in which he served from 14 June to 13 Dec 1780. When the South Carolina backlands were evacuated by the British and their military forces and Royalist supporters concentrated around Charleston the following year after Genearl Cornwallis' defeat at Yorktown, Andrew Myers is listed as a private with various Royalist militia regiments stationed at Charleston and on James Island from 12 Oct 1781 to 31 Dec 1782. At this time, he served in the same company as the Blakeney sons, the Webbers and Henry Siteman, all to be fellow Loyalist settlers on the Eastern Shore after the Revolutionary War.

Andrew Myers married Mary Magdalene ?? in South Carolina. She came with him to Nova Scotia and died before 1832.

Andrew and his wife spent the winter of 1782-83 at Halifax and moved out with the other settlers at Ship Harbour who were to be victualled from government stocks. They were included on Capt. William Shaw's 2 June 1784 muster list of Loyalist refugees then at Ship Harbour, but he is not recorded as taking part in the distribution of land at Ship Harbour granted to Capt. Thomas Green. He was one of the early settlers in the Jeddore area, squatting on land at what is now known as Myers Point, a peninsula jutting out into Jeddore Harbour from the Head of Jeddore.

In 1786 he filed a claim for 161 British pounds as compensation for property left behind in South Carolina, and his claims eventually totaled L209/12. Of this sum, the Claims Commission approved L85 and of this sum, eventually paid him only L34 for his losses. A petition of his son dated 9 April 1818 stated that his father had not ever had any lands granted to him in Nova Scotia.

Andrew Myers signed a petition dated 23 Jan 1830 asking for a road to be built along the Eastern Shore, and was enumerated at Jeddore in the census of 1838. He apoears to have died in the 1840s, and was not enumerated in the 1851 census.

bullet Emily Isabella MYERS was born on 12 Oct 1863 in Jeddore, Nova Scotia. She died on 30 Mar 1933 in Woodside, Halifax Co. Nova Scotia. Her siblings were Peter John (b. 1857, m. Civilla Mitchell), Elizabeth Catherine (b. 1859, m. (1) William Faulkner, (2) William D. Myers), Mary Jane (b. 1860, m. Freeman George Faulkner), Flora Ann (b. 1864, m. Samuel McKinley Deller), Angus Andrew (b. 1867), Walter Henry (b. 1870, m. Catherine Louise Warnell) and Resilla Margaret (1873-1875).

Emily's father Peter John was born 22 Dec 1830 at Head of Jeddore, the son of William Myers (b.1795, Jeddore, d. 1870s) and Mary Webber (b.1800, Clam Harbour to Peter John Webber and Elizabeth R. Merryweather, d.1884). He had two older sisters, Elizabeth (1827) and Nancy Margaret (1829), and three younger brothers, William Andrew (1832), Jacob Thomas (1838) and Issac Samuel (1845).

His father William was the son of Andreas Meyer, known as Andrew Myers in Nova Scotia, who was born not later than 1754 in Germany and was probably a part of the Myers family that arrived in Charleston, South Carolina on the Frankland in January 1766, sailing from Rotterdam. He was granted land there in 1772. As a Loyalist, after the war he came to Nova Scotia in 1782-83, first to Halifax and then to Ship's Harbour and Jeddore. He probably died in the 1840s. His wife, Mary Magdalene, died before 1832.. William was the 7th of 8 children: a son, Catherine (@1783), John Henry (@1785), John Jacob (1786), Ann Elizabeth (1790), Henrietta, William (1795) and Andrew (@1797).

Emily's mother Mary Frances, born 1831 at Oyster Point and died 1897, was the daughter of David Mitchell and Mary Frances Webber. David Mitchell (b. 1803, Clam Harbour-1892, Jeddore) was the son of Colin Campbell Mitchell and Catherine Elizabeth Webber, daughter of Johann Georg Webber and possibly Mary Doull. They were married in 1790 at St Paul's, Halifax and had the following children: Elizabeth (1791-1882), Letitia (1792-1876), Colin Peter (1795-1870), Alexander (1798-1860), John William (1800-1868), David (above), Philip (1806-1871), Samuel (1807-1893) and Isabelle Sarah (1811-1884).

Colin Campbell Mitchell was the son of Alexander Mitchell and Elspet Anderson. He was born 20 May 1769 at Kingsbarns, Fifeshire, Scotland and came to Nova Scotia in 1784. In 1813 he obtained a land grant of 250 acres in Oyster Pond, and he farmed this land for the rest of his life. He also owned a small cargo ship, and in 1834 started to contract with Halifax merchants to haul freight to Newfoundland.

(Note: I gratefully acknowledge the help of Robert Kim Stevens on tracing back the Myers, Mitchell and Webber family lines. He is writing a number of books on Eastern Shore towns and their families, and has a web site at www3.ns.sympatica.ca/lharnish/kimindex.htm which shows which books he has published, the progress he's made on the ones as yet unpublished and a list of the family surnames covered in each one. He would like an e-mail from anyone who has interest in any of these families.)

Speaking about Emily Isabella personally, from my point of view she must have had a hard life emotionally. To have given birth to 16 children and see only 8 survive to adulthood must have been heartbreaking. Although many families in her time were large, 16 children is still far more than average, and the death rate among them was far higher than the norm: half of her chiildren died young! I find both statistics hard to understand, especially as her husband was a druggist.

Firstly though, birth control was illegal at that time, so being a druggist did not mean having a handy supply of anything along that line. Kim Stevens points out in his book that the normal spacing of children in a family in Nova Scotia, with nature taking its course, used to be about two years, until at the turn of the century baby formula became available for bottle-feeding, with the result that women stopped breast-feeding earlier, became pregnant again earlier and so had larger families. Certainly Fred would have had access to such formula, and this may be the reason why Emily averaged one child almost every 15 months..

As for what caused the deaths of her children, some diseases, like the scarlet fever and cholera infantum which killed Gladys Maggie and Nellie Frances, were incurable, and although there was a supposed "cure" for pneumonia, which killed John William, I seem to recall it could often kill. I don't know if the fact that Emily was an older mother when she bore her last two children made any difference. We know that one baby died of "debility", but that was a symptom, overall weakness, not a disease.

Also, although I would have thought diseases would have been caught more easily in a big city, out of their six children born in Halifax, only one died and yet all but three of the remaining ten children born in Hantsport died.

Of course Frederick being the druggist of the town and probably acting as a doctor half of the time would have constantly been in touch with sick people and could have brought more than the usual number of bugs into the home. Being the druggist of the town would therefore be more of a danger than a blessing perhaps!

In fact, one vivid story of the perils of being a druggist used to be related by his daughter, Lottie, who also became a pharmacist. She remembered helping out in the drugstore many times during flu epidemics, and used to tell her descendants that during a flu epidemic she would go to the counter and serve a customer, run into the back after to give herself a sulphur shot in the mouth to kill any germs, and then go back to the counter to serve the next customer!

This family tree software does not create a chronological time line of events for a person's life, but I did one myself for Emily and I think it points out how hard life must have been emotionally for her at times. One thing her daughter Lottie used to say is that she never had any birthday parties; was it because she was at the end of a huge line of children, or because it was just too painful to recall dates, so many birthdays being only weeks away from deaths? Look how the dates are grouped, especially in January, March, October and November.

June 22, 1882 - Elopes to Halifax to get married, 5 months pregnant.

Sept 21, 1890 - 20 months later, a seventh child, Nellie Frances, first child born in Hantsport.
Sept 13, 1891 - A week before her 1st birthday, Nellie Frances dies of cholera infantum.

May 30, 1893 - 15 months later, a ninth child, Gladys Maggie.

Oct 26, 1898 - Her father-in-law Richard Edwin died on her son Frank's 11th birthday
June 10, 1899 - 15 months after Agnes, Lottie Lawrence is born. There are now 10 children at home, including 3 girls aged 17, 14 and 13 who could supposedly help with the little ones.
Mar 2, 1900 - Agnes Mary dies, 6 days before her 2nd birthday.
Mar 28, 1901 - Kathleen Isabel born, 14th child.
May 2, 1901 - 6 weeks later, John William dies, aged 6, of pneumonia
Dec 25, 1902 - Emily Jean marries Gilbert Frizzell, aged 20, and leaves home.
Aug 9, 1903 - Two-and-a-half years after Kathleen, a baby girl is born, who lives only one day.
Oct 23, 1903 - Her mother-in-law, Agnes Sophia, dies.
Nov 25, 1904 - 15 months after the baby girl, a baby boy is born, who lives only three days.
Nov. 2, 1908 - Emily's father, Peter John Myers, dies.
July 4, 1916 - Richard Arthur dies in France during World War I.

As far as what Emily's life would have been like growing up in Jeddore, there is a website called "Louisa's World" which is the diary of a young girl who lived around the same time as Emily in the same part of the Eastern Shore. I would think that her life as she describes it, in her early teens, would have been very similar to Emily's. I suggest you read it.

In Hantsport, Emily did a lot of charity work with the Indians and the poor. She also helped deliver their babies, using the guest room in her house. With all her children and her charity work on the go, she had a hired lady come in to help with the house and a lady who did the laundry.

Emily was a small woman, and her granddaughter Kay Hollingsworth has a photo of her, the only one that anyone seems to know of, sitting on a porch with her daughters around her. She is going to send a copy to me and I will post it on the website. If anyone reading this has another photo of her, or indeed any old family photos, please contact me and let me scan it in for everyone to see on this page.

Emily's signature, found on her marriage document, will be scanned in in the near future.
