    Petition 15 Dec 1804  Wythe Co, Virginia, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    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. Others who signed were Edward Murphey, George Myers, Peter Myers Sr, Peter Myers Jr., Frederick Myers, and John Myers.
