MYERS, Sarah Ann (IRWIN), author, born in Wilmington, Delaware, in 1800; died in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 11 December, 1876. She was educated at Bethlehem female seminary, married Dr. Theodore Myers in 1825, and on his death was thrown on her own resources. She went to Philadelphia, where she became a friend of Mrs. Sarah J. Hale, and was advised by the latter to attempt authorship. Her success enabled her to continue studies in music and painting, and she became a member of the Pennsylvania academy of fine arts. Subsequently she removed to Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where she supported herself by teaching music and art and by her writings. Her paintings include a head of "Evangeline," "Greek Girl," and " One of the Pharisees." Among her numerous books, which are largely intended for children, are "Fitz Harold" (New York, 1853); "Aunt Carrie's Budget" (Philadelphia, 1859); "Poor Nicholas" (1863) ; "The Gulf Stream" (1864) ; and "Margaret Gordon," her last work, which is said to be founded on her own life (1869).
