Austin G. Myers Obituary

Clark County Clipper, June 13, 1901


Austin G. Myers was born in Edgar county, Illinois, April the 8th, 1867; departed this life June 12th, 1901 at his home in Ashland, Kansas.

Deceased was married to Mary J. Askin, April 8th, 1875 in Illinois.  Of this union there were three children born, Ida B., Maggie M. and Adelia E.  The first name died in infancy and the other two survive.  He was baptized May 11th last.

Mr. Myers came to this country in the year 1884 and has since lived here.  He was at all time considered an honest, upright and an honored citizen, and at times commanded the respect of the community in which he lived.

He has been failing for several years and recently sold his farm west of town and bought a home in the city that the family might be better prepared to take care of him when he should become helpless.

The community will sympathize with the bereaved ones in their affliction.
