In alluding to people who have attained a great age the following information was furnished me by Mrs. Linetta Stone wife of W. F. Stone of near Protem Taney County, Mo. She said she was born in 1840 and that her and Mr. Stone were married in Maries County Mo in 1868. Mrs. Stone says that her grandparents on her mothers side were of German descent. Their names were William and Rachel Myers and they lived in the state of Tennessee for many year. My grandfather William Myers lived to be 106 years old when he died. His death occurred in Green County Tennessee and lies buried in a grave yard there.
