Messer (scythe company founder) from the heirs of James Hayes in 1857. (John Hayes seems to have purchased it from Ebenezer Shepard in 1827.) The 1899 Myra Lord town history says that Richard Messer built the current house and dwelled there towards the end of his life. He died in 1880. The Messer heirs sold the property to Austin Morgan in June 1880.
