Nicolaus Meyer, son of Christian Nicolas Meyer & Anne Elisabeth Scheyer, was born on 20 November 1747 in Ormersviller, Mosselle (France). Nicholas Meier was an original settler in Louis, and is listed there as being from Bitche, France. According to research done by Sean McGinnis and Jérome Beining, this is the only Nicolaus Meyer in this Germanic area of France that did not die or get married and continue a family there.
