MYERS, Christopher

- Died: 1776, Orange Co, NC at age 46 1
According to Norma Cullison Myers:
Birth: The year 1730 is just a guess. I don't think Christopher was an "old man" when he died, given the fact his wife was expecting their second child.
Probate: Will- 1775 Orange Co., N.C., Vol.A, p.194 - CHRISTOPHEL MIER, dated Aug. 1775; recorded NOV 1775 ...In the name of God, Amen.

In settling the estate, Adam Schmidt, listed the debts of Christopher Meyer which totaled 101 pounds, 2 shillings, 10 pence. This was owed to William Oneal, Michael Mosser, Jacob Starr, Nicholas Holt, Lues Tronbarry, David Tronbarry, Michael Shofner, John May, Ludovick Clap, Jacob Anthoney, Peter Low, John Hartley, Christian Long, John Ritnar, Tobias Smith, and John Schady. In his account Adam Schmidt does not say where the money came from to pay the debts. I assume an estate sale was held to raise the money. Orange County
