  • Notes 
    • OK, this is who I think Minerva is. I am pretty sure I am correct, but not 100% confirmed. However, I think this is high probably. 97% probable.
      William H. Myler, son of Thomas and Mary Eliza Keysacker married Nancy M. Roberson, daughter of Thomas Roberson and Nancy M. Froman, in Crawford County on 23 Jan 1862. They had one daughter named Eliza born about 1863.
      Then on 18 Nov 1868 my William H. Myler married Amira Ewing (Colby) in Oil Twp, Perry County which told me that William's first wife died sometime in 1867. William and Amira are both buried in Keysacker Cemetery.
      I have always had suspicions that Minerva Roberson Myler in the Roberson Cemetery was the first wife of my William Myler because the 1850 census shows Thomas, wife Nancy, their children which included "Nerva" (Minerva) and then the 1860 census shows Nerva as Nancy = Nancy Minerva Roberson. The birth year is off on the census versus the headstone, but that doesn't always mean anything. It's the death year that was important, and Minerva Roberson Myler died in 1867 which matches my approximate death date for William's first wife Nancy.
