An invitation is extended to the community to join the Belmont County Chapter, Ohio Genealogy Society, and members of the Myers & Hamilton Reunion Saturday, July 29 at Captina Cemetery to dedicate a U.S. Government marker for Civil War Veteran Singleton Myers (1845-1938). Myers, a member of the U.S. Colored Troops who enlisted on August 18, 1864, was also the founder of the popular family reunion that brings descendants back to Barnesville each year. The reunion will take place at Memorial Park that afternoon.
The dedication program will get underway at 5 pm at the cemetery located five miles southeast of Barnesville on Somerset Twp. Road 30 just off SR 148.
