Re: Abner and Myron Carrier, Elkhorn 1870

Abner and Myron were sons of Anson and Jerusha Eddy Carrier of Floyd, Oneida County, New York. Both married in New York and Abner remained in Nebraska. I understand has many descendants there, many of them in the Morris family. One researcher with Morris family connections has contacted me (She even has some pictures).

Myron had two daughters by his first wife Harriet Jane Lindsay by 1872 and then for some reason in 1873 they were back in New York where Harriet died. Myron apparently left his daughters with relatives and went to Utah to trap beaver to raise money to go to medical school which he later apparently did in New York. By 1881 he had relocated in the Verde Valley of Arizona as a doctor and sent for his two Nebraska born daughters who both married local men (one a dentist and one a rancher). Myron remarried to a local rancher's daughter named Melvina Munds and they had more children, one of whom survived to adulthood.

I have been hoping someday to learn more about their early days in Nebraska and what they did there. I appreciate your response to my query.
