Charles C. Myler written by Dorothy Wray Giles Bacon Grandfather Myler was born in Logan and lived in Cache Valley until after he was married in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City. The Endowment House took the place of the temple before it was completed. Grandfather studied vocal music. After his marriage to Isabelle Morton, they lived in Cache Valley, where mother (Elizabeth) and Aunt Julia were born. They then moved to Lewisville, Idaho in 1884. They filed on land and made their home there for many years. He was active in the choir and was a choir leader for many years. He put on many concerts. His father, James Myler, was a member of the Mormon Battalion. When James left with the Battalion, he left his wife, Julia Ann Brownell, with two small children, Oscar and Joseph, with only a wagon box to live in. James Myler was 72 when he died. He always attended church, but the family does not remember any of the offices that he held. He lived in Lewisville, and his boys, mostly Grandfather, ran his farm. Grandpa moved from Lewisville to Riverside, where he was also active in choruses and the choir through 1899. They moved to Bannock in 1909 where he was counselor in the Bishopric. His wife died in 1908. He made his home in Bannock until just before his death when he spent quite a little time in Pocatello. He died of influenza and a poor heart, which made him unable to fight off the flu. He held nearly every office of the priesthood and was a High Priest when he died. He was ordained to this office about the time he went to Bannock. He was always building something new and in new places. He was very honest and conscientious, a strict observer of the Word of Wisdom. He was very jovial. After he spent a lifetime and built up the waste places of Zion and made the "desert to blossom as a rose"; a patriarch told him he had been chosen for that work before he came here. When he was up in the hills picking chokecherries with his four daughters and Aunt Julia's family, he fell and Violet, his granddaughter, cried till she laughed. He was a very good horseman, very likable, and had lots of friends. Grandmother Myler, Isabelle Morton, was born in Illinois, on the way to Utah. Her parents were converted in Scotland. They moved to Wellsville and lived there. She was well educated for the time. NOTE: This is written from brief notes which I believe were written down by Dorothy Wray Giles Bacon after talking to her mother, Elizabeth Myler Wray. I'm not sure how accurate the dates are, especially the one for the move to Bannock. Vesta Davis Turner.

Life of My Father, Charles C. Myler as told by Isabelle Myler Knowles, his dughter My father, Charles C. Myler, was born in Logan, Utah, April 22, 1861. He was the son of James Myler and Julia Ann Brownell from Indiana. James Myler was the only one of his family to join the church. When father was five years old, his father's family moved to Montana and while they were camping close to Pocatello they had their dinner(noon meal) and moved on in their wagons. The two older boys drove one wagon and the father the other. They had gone about five miles from the campgrounds when they stopped to see something. Grandmother asked that the boys let little Charlie come and ride with them. Then they discovered that Charlie was not with them. They immediately went back to the campgrounds on horses and looked everywhere and could find no trace of him. They were frantic with fear as they called and called, when Charlie came out of the bush and said, "Here I is." He had been sleeping and their calling had awakened him. (If they really made this trip to Montana in 1866, it was a busy year. Their oldest son was married in April. That would leave children ages 20,16, 13, 12, 10, 7, 5, and 3, with one child being born in August and the 16 year old died in July of that year. Perhaps the newlyweds were with them, or perhaps it was another year. Perhaps they went early in the year before the wedding and the death of their son. In 1865 they had a son born who died the same year.) Grandfather, James Myler, moved from Canada to Southern Utah, then back to Clarkston, Utah and that is where father grew up as a boy. He studied music; he played the accordion, mouth organ and was an excellent singer and a very good whistler. He sang in churches for dances, plays, funerals and parties, in fact on every occasion. He knew music very well and had a wonderful ear for music. Father was a choir leader and was first counselor to Bishop Wilhelm Kowallis. He was blessed with the gift of healing. People came from miles around to have him bless them and administer to them. He had a power about him that gave you a spiritual feeling that all was well. Father was very jolly, and entertaining. He was very fond of children, and all children loved him, and all babies would go to him. He would teach the children to dance and sing. He was sure thrilled when my daughter, Mary, danced very nicely for him at the age of twenty-two months. When my father and two of his friends were traveling from Utah to Idaho they camped somewhere near Inkom, Idaho. Father was awakened by a voice that said, "Charles, you'd better look after your horses." He turned over to go to sleep again, but the voice kept repeating, so he got up and awakened the men. They caught one of the horses a mile away. My father rode the horse and caught the other horses about five miles up the road on a trot, going back to Cache Valley, Utah. If it hadn't been for these promptings they would have been stranded on foot many miles from a town. Father paid his tithing regularly. After a short illness, mother died at the home of her daughter, Alice Wray Skanchy, 177 East 3rd South, Logan, Utah, on December 28, 1937. After my mother died, father was both father and mother to me and always loving and kind. After my father died, my brother, Frank (Charles Frank Myler), had a very important engagement, but he was also supposed to meet his brother-in- law at 11 o'clock. He was worried about which he should keep, when he heard father say, "James will drive to the hay stack at 12:00 o'clock and his brother-in-law, James Wray, was just driving in. Father lived ten years after mother died. All of his children were married but one girl. Father was blessed with seven children, five girls and two boys: Elizabeth, Julia Ann, Isabelle, Mary Jane, Charles Frank, James Alexander, who died when he was 22 months old, and Olive Fiametta. Father died with the flu in Pocatello, Idaho, and was buried in the Riverside Cemetery, with only a dedication of the grave. Because of the flu they couldn't have funerals for it was prohibited while the flu was so bad. He died October 25, 1918, at the age of 57. Mother had died October 23, 1908 and was buried October 25, 1908 in the Riverside Cemetery. (This history is the only mention of a trip the family made to Montana, and the mention of time spent in Southern Utah. Vesta. I don’t know about the accuracy.)

Life timeline of Charles C. Myler

Charles C. Myler was born on 22 Apr 1861
Charles C. Myler was 17 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Charles C. Myler was 24 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax. His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
Charles C. Myler was 32 years old when Electrical engineer Nikola Tesla gives the first public demonstration of radio in St. Louis, Missouri. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Charles C. Myler was 44 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Charles C. Myler died on 16 Oct 1918 at the age of 57
