[1] Michael Myers, Jr., born ca 1758/61, married Mary Nicholson 12 Jun 1779 in Rowan CO. Evidently Michael was a young man when he died because, according to court records on 6 Aug 1806, guardians were appointed for five of his nine children. That there were nine children is determined by guardianship accounts listing each heir with one-ninth part of his estate. One child has not been found. The remaining eight are:

i. Elizabeth Myers, born ca 1758/61, married Massey Thomas II on 23 Mar l802. The Thomases were from Culpeper Co., Virginia but were of the English Thomases.
