I'm trying to find the parents and family of a Mary Myers, b. 1791--most likely in the McConnellsburg area, d. 1826 in Bedford Co. She was married in 1814 to Michael Fletcher of Bedford Co., and together they resided in SE Bedford Co. in what's now Monroe Twp., on the farm of Michael's older brother John Fletcher. It's believed that the marriage took place in McConnellsburg, based on the published wedding announcement.
Mary and Michael had five children, with Mary dying of childbirth complications following the delivery of the last child, Daniel Myers Fletcher, in 1826. My feeling is that this child was named after either Mary's father or a brother. Earlier children were David, George, Catharine Maria, and Elizabeth. A poster on the Rootsweb board mentioned her search for family of a Daniel and Jacob Myers, believed to be brothers, from McConnellsburg, who moved westward in the mid-1810s. There was a Daniel Myers household recorded in the census for Ayr Twp. in 1810, showing a male/female couple in their 20s, along with two younger males.
I'd greatly appreciate hearing from anyone with some McConnellsburg expertise, who may know something of a Myers family in this vicinity from the timeframe outlined above.
