Jay was a cajun, a fisherman, and a father of ten children.
Jay O'Neil Myers, commonly known as "Buster", was born in Naples (possibly with the surname Mayeux). Little is known about Jay's childhood, but it is known that he stopped attending school after the third grade.
Jay's parentage is a matter of uncertainty. Some genealogies list his mother as an "Edith Myers" who died in Puerto Rico, in a mysterious non sequitur for a poor cajun family. Another theory holds that Jay was born a Mayeux, and that sometime between 1910 and 1920 his family relocated to a place near Alexandria and their last names were all changed to Myers.
As an adult, Jay worked as a bridge builder a commercial fisherman. In his later years he worked at the Stonewall Sugarcane Plantation near New Roads.
