The Myers Remedy Company was established by Dr. J. W. Myers, who was my great-grandfather. J. W. began practicing medicine in 1895 in Tucker County, WV, but soon moved to Nestorville and then Philippi, both in Barbour County, WV. While living in Nestorville, he established a phone system (with the switchboard located in his house), so his patients could easily contact him. The Myers Remedy Conpany was established to provide medication to people in the rural areas of WV, PA, OH, IN, KY, and VA. After J. W.’s death in 1935, the Myers Remedy Company was run by my great-grandmother, Lennie Crim Johnson Myers.
