Note from Gary Myers 12/21/2000: "MIERS FAMILY RECORD" from the Hunterdon Historical Newsletter Nov 1984:

When Anna Miers applied for a widow's pension on the Revolutionary War service of her husband, Alburtus Miers she submitted the Family Record and affadavit of Isaac Godown which became part of Alburtis Miers' file, W27973 in the National Archives in Washington, D.C. These were discovered in the file by Marty Goodspeed who secured xerox copies for inclusion in the Bible and Family Records collection of the Society. The affadavid of Isaac Godown, dated 29 April 1840, provides some background information on Alburtus Myers and wife, Anna, and the creation of this Family Record. His statement relates that the Family Record was printed with a pen by the hand of one Aberdeen, a schoolmaster, under the direction of Alburtus and Annay Myers (sic) about the year Seventeen Hundred and Ninety Six all except the last entry of the Birth of Anna the younger which he believes was done in the hand of John Miers. Alburtus Miers named in the Record was the identical person named in a Certificate of Pension dated 2 May 1834, Anna named above remains his widow since Alburtus' death in January 1838.

An Account of the Age and Names fo the Children of Alaburtus(sic) and Anna Miers Said Parents were Married the Ninth day of December Anno Domini 1784.

The Hunterdon County marriage records record the name as Myers. I have used the spelling here as Myers based on the most used. The IGI has her first name spelled Emela.
