Sharon Moreland Myers is a 1964 graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School and a 1974 University of Akron graduate.
She organized the William Wetmore Chapter Daughters of 1812 four years ago.
The 32 members of the group paid a $67.50 application fee to join, then annual dues of $30. Members must be able to prove they descend from a direct in-line ancestor who took part in the War of 1812. The group meets four times a year at the Stow-Munroe Falls or Cuyahoga Falls library or at Silver Lake Country Club.
With 365 veterans of the War of 1812 buried in Summit County, the group was involved in getting markers for more than 100 in 2013 in a project that was funded by a grant from Summit County.
Last year, Myers along with the Summit County Historical Society and Metro Parks, Serving Summit County, worked together to lead two tours of Glendale Cemetery of War of 1812 veterans’ graves. More than 120 people attended.
A tour of Oakwood Cemetery in Cuyahoga Falls will be held Sept. 27 in conjunction with the Ladies Oakwood Chapel Auxiliary.
The city of Fairlawn will rededicate Croghan Park on July 19 with a living history encampment, pig roast and 1812 concert.
Myers and her husband, Al, have been married for 46 years.
