His birth and death details were confused with those of one Henry Meyer, also from Philadelphia, PA, but he was in fact known as George Meyers, and not as Henry Meyer or Henry Meyers, as listed in many sources.
"Myers (sic), a very promising young Highland player, covered third base, but he was timid, and consequently made errors. He stopped some hard hits, however, and made several pretty throws." - Sporting Life, September 6, 1890, about George Meyers' first major league game
