COONS, JEUTTER, MYERS, YEITER posted by Tom Wilson on Saturday, October 28, 2000

I am descended from Jakob and Caroline (MYERS) JEUTTER through their son Frederick Simon YEITER. Jakob was born April 20, 1827 in Germany, died Feb 24, 1906 in Alto, Kent County, buried in Merriman Cemetery in Lowell. Caroline was born April 16, 1833 in Stark County, Ohio, died May 17, 1908 in Alto, buried at Merriman. They were married March 13, 1853 in Crawford County, Ohio and moved to Lowell Twp., Kent County shortly after. I have the YEITER (also spelled JEUTTER) family fairly well documented. However, I am now actively researching the MYERS and COONS family lines of Caroline. All I know about her parents are that they were both born in Michigan, lived for some time in Stark County, Ohio before moving to Crawford County prior to 1853. Any help on Caroline's siblings and the history of the MYERS and COONS families would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help! Tom Wilson Boca Raton, FL
