    Myers signed a petition protesting the obstruction of a dam erected by Andrew and James Crockett at their ironworks on Reed Creek and requested that they be compelled to erect a slope "in such a manner as shall be sufficient to admit the passage of the fish." Witnesses claimed that since the erection of the dam "has never been worth a man's time to go a-fishing" because they have never seen a catfish since then and fish were very scarce.
