    • COMMEMORATIVE BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD. Page 530

      (George Meyer) ... was reared upon a farm, and was married in Haines township to Miss Lydia Harter, who was there born May 16, 1807, a daughter of Andrew Harter, and they became the parents of six children: George J. is the father of our subject; Julia A., born December 20, 1831, is the wife of John Weaver, of Penn township, Centre county; Maria, born January 26, 1837, is the wife of Jacob Ketner, of Haines township; Samuel, born July 13, 1839, was a miller by trade, and died in Millheim, Centre county; Sarah, born April 12, 1842, is the widow of Daniel Miller, of Haines township; and Andrew, born January 17, 1848, is a miller of the same township. The father of these children taught two terms of school after his marriage. He began housekeeping upon a rented farm in Haines township, and to agricultural pursuits mainly devoted his attention until his death at the age of forty-seven years. He was never a robust man, and catching cold, it developed into consumption, which caused his death. Politically he was a Democrat, and religiously he was a member of the German Re- formed Church. His wife survived him only about two and one-half years. [2]
