The Cyphers are of German extraction, but we can only trace them back to Maryland.  John Cyphers, the grandfather of the above, came to Ohio before the war of 1812, and served as a soldier in that struggle; also in the Mexican War.  He died in Shelby county in 1872.  Phillip Cypers, his son, and father of George, came to Shelby County in 1857, and is at present a resident of Orange Township.  George was born in Montgomery County in 1846, and married Mary Dunn, a daughter of John and Susannah (Rasor) Dunn, in 1870.  They have three children, Lenta D., Carrie E., Addie T.  MRs. Cyphers' parents were among the early settlers of Shelby county.  There were located in Orange Township, where they both died.
