He was born at the family farm Walnut Grove in Rockbridge County, Virginia. His father Robert experimented with a design for a mechanical reaper from around the time of Cyrus' birth. In 1831 he abandoned the idea and turned the work over to his son. Cyrus made several changes to his father's design and successfully demonstrated his reaper at Steele's Tavern, Virginia, in July 1831. After a few additional modifications, he patented the invention in 1834.Cyrus is known as the founder of the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company, which became part of International Harvester Company in 1902.
