Mark Myers (1857–1909)

lt is with much regret that we have to chronicle the demise of Mr. Mark Myers, which sad event took place at his residence, Pymble, near Sydney, from diabetes. The late Mr Myers was well known on the North Coast, and had travelled for various firms for upwards of 20 years. Till some five years back he represented Messrs. Feldheim, Gotthelf and Co., merchants, of Sydney, but latterly had been in the commission of over 20 of the leading Sydney and Melbourne houses. Some little time ago it will be remembered that Mr. Myers was robbed of jewellery and money whilst travelling on the Electra to Taree, and soon afterwards he was reported to be a patient in the Grafton Hospital, but was removed to his home at Pymble.
