Harry/Henry/Anna/Wm Myer,Myers,Meyers etc etc PA & IL

William born ca 1838-50ish, give or take a few. William's son was Ira Ernest Myers be was born 1878 here in IL. William's wife Lucinda was born 13 Nov 1844 York, PA. Wm. and Lucinda were married 25 DEC 1862 in York Co PA. The marriage license states there were both from "Silver Springs PA". "formerly Cumberland Co PA". I know they came here soon there after as she has sisters etc, their obits and hers states they came here approx 1862-66. I have info down from William H but that is it, of course even trying to get info on a William Meyers/Myers etc is a nightmare, but at least I have his marriage and death etc. Yes, I have looked under almost all spellings but I am starting over with each spelling again. I do not know how a Harry Meyers/Myers/etc etc etc, can just not exist when you have even the marriage of his son stating where he lived etc. I never know whether to look for Harry or Henry. In the Bible and in heresay, his name was Harry not Henry. My uncle was named Harry after him. I know that Harry and Wm both used the Meyers spelling but my grandfather took out the extra e on his. I don't get why there is no death info at all on them when the years were not like in the 1700's etc. I try to rationalize, at least lately, that my grandmother and grandfather would have been alive and married, when my grandfather's grandfather died. Surely my grandmother could not have been that far off in the years ie: 1850 versus 1900ish. Surely if she wrote it down in the Bible she was guessing pretty close if not correctly. It wasn't as though the man would have died before she ever married Ira. Here is all that I have....

Harry Meyers b ca 1800-20?? Germany died 1902 per the Bible record.
married to Anna Mary MN:Unknown b in Germany died 1900 per the Bible record.
Son: William H Meyers b in PA ca 1830-40ish. Married in 1862 to Lucinda Wire in York Co PA, marriage license states they were both of Silver Springs formerly of Cumberland Co. They moved here in 1862-1866. William died 16 Oct 1894 in Decatur IL, wife Lucinda died 7 June 1905. Obit of William states he was born in Rossville PA (that is in York Co I believe). Parents etc are not listed in obit. It is thought that either Harry or William had brothers named George and possibly Templeton? George and the possible Templeton moved to KS at some point, one moved back to IL. That is totally all I know about Harry, William, Mary Ann etc.
