General Notes: Husband - John Meyer


He was a cabinet-maker and undertaker by trade, and conducted his business at or near his father's old homestead all his life. He never enjoyed any educational privileges beyond those afforded by the country subscription schools of that period, and these even could not be attended regularly by pupils because the constant demand for assistance on the farms kept children out of school; yet by assiduous reading his mind was well stored with useful knowledge on many subjects. He was a stiff Democrat, and used to take great interest in politics in his younger days, but was never an office-seeker himself. He was quite enthusiastic in military matters, and held various grades in the service, at different periods, the last and highest being that of major.
