Last Post on Frederick Meyers''s Marriage His father is Henry.

If you examine the marriage record closely you find that his father is listed as Henry Meyers.

Though nearly all the records I have seen have him listed as Friedrich, grandfather had called him Henry. or Heinrich. Surprising then that the church records for Jurgen Friedrich Meyer [born 1814] did not say Jurgen Heinrich Friedrich Meyer. I had seen it that way in one case, so I figured it was so.

And if he said that for his marriage license, maybe his lost family in Usa also said that. I would say that is a good point to remember.

Now I wonder, why oh why did he call himself Meyers?
And further, why would he have the wrong age for himself?
