Myers was born in 1852 in Lancaster, Fairfield County, Ohio, the son of Iddo and Mary Myers. He moved to Iowa and graduated from Griswold College. He married Hedda Ebba Bergwall in Milwaukee on 27 April 1880. Alumni registers of Griswold College list him in both the Diocese of Nebraska and the Diocese of Iowa in 1880, but the federal census that year lists him on the town of Maquoketa, Iowa, where he remained at least through 1883. He came to Indiana and served as rector of both St. John's Church, Elkhart, and St. Paul's, Mishawaka, from 1885 to 1886. He returned to Nebraska and was rector at McCook and Holdridge. He had been appointed in 1891 to Grace Church, Red Cloud, but he was deposed and removed from the ministry by Bishop Graves of The Platte later in 1891. He reportedly died the following year in Milwaukee, but no record of his death has been found. His widow resided in Delafield, Wisconsin, in 1900.
