Notes for John L Moyer and Elizabeth Albright

1795 John Moyer, son of Christian Meyer and Ann Neff, was born on September 22, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. [1] [2] [3] [4]

1797 Elizabeth Albert, daughter of George Albert and Elizabeth Greenawalt, was born on January 19, in Pennsylvania. [5]

c 1817 The date and place of the marriage of John Moyer and Elizabeth Albert are not known. Their siblings, Abraham Moyer and Susan Albert, also married and moved to Ohio about the same time that John Moyer did. [6]

1820 John Myers (age 16-26) lived in Manheim Twp, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with 1 male age 26-45 (unknown), one female age 0-10 (daughter Anna?), and one female age 16-26 (wife Elizabeth?). [7] [8] Widow Myers, perhaps his mother, was named in the adjacent listing.

1824 Several Myer residences were shown on a map of Lancaster County. J. Myers and D. Myers were shown near the Hamilton Estates. D. Myer was shown across the Conestoga near Hempfield. Several other names were shown on the map that were listed near John Myers in the 1820 census (D Stoner, Brubaker, Kauffman) in Manheim Twp. [9]

1813-1826 Only one tax record, in 1824, has been found during this period for John Moyer in Manheim Twp, Lancaster County. He was listed as John Jr. Perhaps he moved to Ohio very soon after reaching a taxable age. John Myers was listed in the census in 1820, so it is unclear why he was not taxed between 1820-1823. (See Research Notes: below)

1824 Several Meyer families were taxed in Manheim Twp, Lancaster County. David (Innkeeper, 12 acres, tavern), David (Teacher), David (131 acres), Jacob (Estate, 175 acres), John (141 acres), Ann (widow, 24 acres), Jacob Jr (10 acres), John Jr, Mary (widow) [10]

1826 John Moyer moved to Ohio. [11]

John Moyer moved from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (lower right) to
Richland County, Ohio (over "HI" of Ohio). [12]

1828 John Myers was taxed for 30 acres in section 21 NW of Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio. He was not listed in 1827. [13]

1829 John Myers was taxed for 30 acres in section 21 NW of Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio. [14]

1829 John Myers (north) and John Myers (south) and Abraham Myers were taxed in Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio. [15]

1830 John Myers was taxed for 30 acres in section 21 NW of Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio. [16]

1830 John Meirs and wife (age 30-40) lived in Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio with Males: one (age 0-5, John), one (age 5-10, Christian); and Females: one (age 0-5, Barbara), one (age 5-10, Catherine), and two (age 10-15, Anna and Elizabeth). The family of George Albert, Elizabeth's parents, was listed adjacent. Abraham Meirs, perhaps this John Moyer's brother, was listed on the next page of the census. [17] [18]

1837 John Myers was taxed for 30 acres in section 21 NW of Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio. [19]

1838 Elizabeth Moyer died on April 4, 1838, at Five Points, Ashland County, Ohio, and was buried at the Brubaker Cemetery, Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio. Her gravestone indicated Elizabeth Moyer, wife of John Moyer, died 4 April, 1838, aged 39 years, 2 months, 15 days. Her parents were buried in the same cemetery. [20] [21] [22]

1838 John Myers was taxed for 30 acres in section 21 NW of Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio. [23]

1840 John Myers, Jr (age 40-50) lived in Milton Twp, Richland County, Ohio with 4 sons (John Jr age 15-20, Christian age 10-15, George age 10-15, Abram age 0-5) and 4 daughters (Anna age 15-20, Catherine Elizabeth age 10-15, Barbara age 5-10, and Harriet age 0-5) and no female of an age for a wife, consistent with Elizabeth's death in 1938. The adjacent listing was father-in-law George Albert (age 60-70). On the next page was likely brother Abraham Myers (age 30-40) and Abraham's wife Susanna Albright Moyer. Several other possibly related families were listed nearby: John Myers (age 50-60), Samuel Myers (age 20-30), David Myers (age 20-30), Peter Greenawalt (age 40-50), and Michael Greenawalt (age 50-60). [24] [25] [26]

Title
1861 Map of landowners in Milton Twp, Ashland County, Ohio.
Land of Newcomer and Newsbaum is shown in the NW quadrant of section 27,
perhaps previously owned by Moyer heirs (see deeds of 1846 and 1849). [27]

The heirs of both Elizabeth Albright Moyer and her father George Albright were named in their estate records. Elizabeth died before her father and there is some ambiguity in the records about identifying which heirs were children of Elizabeth versus which were children of George.

1846 Several heirs of George Albright sold land in Ohio on January 5.

1846 Peter Brubaker and wife Catherine, Abraham Moyer and wife Susan, Henry Hartman and wife Barbara, Mary Birke, Jacob Bechtel and wife Anna, William Kercher and wife Elizabeth, Michael Gongaway and wife Catherine, John Moyer Jr, Christian Moyer, Barbara Moyer, George Moyer, Harriet Moyer, and Abraham Moyer minor heirs of Elizabeth Moyer by guardian John Moyer Jr, sold sold 13 acres to Nancy Newcomer in section 27 of Milton Twp, Ashland/Richland County, Ohio, on January 5. [28] [29]

1846 Peter Brubaker and wife Catherine, Abraham Myers and wife Susan, Henry Hartman and wife Barbara, Benjamin Newcomer and wife Nancy, Jacob Bechtel and wife Anna, William Kircher and wife Elizabeth, Michael Gangaway and wife Catherine, John Myers Jr, Christian Myers, Barbara Myers, George Myers, Harriett Myers, and Abraham Myers minor heirs of Elizabeth Moyer by guardian John Moyer Senior, sold sold 33 acres to Mary Burk, in section 27 of Milton Twp, Ashland/Richland County, Ohio, on January 5. [30] [31]

1847 The estate of Elizabeth's father, George Albert, was settled. George's daughter Elizabeth Albert Moyer had already died, and her children were named as heirs of George Albert. John Moyer was not named as an heir. Elizabeth's daughter Anna and husband Jacob Bechtel were named without reference to Elizabeth. Those of Elizabeth's children who were still minors were explicitely named as her children, including John Jr, Christian, Barbara, George, Harriet, and Abraham. Some of the married female heirs listed for George Albright were likely Elizabeth's older daughters. [32]

1849 John Myers and wife Catharine, of Ashland County, Ohio, sold land to Peter Nusbaum on September 8. The land was in the NW corner of Section 27 of Ashland County. [33]

1849 The "final" administration of the estate of Elizabeth Myers named her minor children. Husband John Moyer was their guardian. Barbara, John, and Christopher (Christian, perhaps?) were minor heirs who had become of age. George, Harriett, and Abraham were still minors with guardian John Moyer. [34] [35]

1849 John Myers gave an account of the guardianship of John, Barbara, and Christopher Myers, all minor heirs of Elizabeth Myers, deceased, who were now of full age. [36]

1849 John Myers gave an account of the guardianship of George A Myers, Harriet Myers, and Abraham Myers, all minor heirs of Elizabeth Myers, deceased, who were still minors. [37]

1848-49 John Moyer and several of his children moved to Indiana. [38][reported as 1848 in the 1878 obituary]

1850 John Moyer (age 55, born Pennsylvania) and Catherine (born 1810, Germany) lived in Elkhart County, Indiana, with children born in Ohio: Barbary (age 20), George (age 17), Harriet (age 16), Abram (age 13), Jacob (age 8). Next door was brother Abram Moyer (age 50) and wife Susanna (age 48) with children, up to age 17, all born in Ohio. Abraham and John Moyer, who had lived in Richland in 1840, were not listed in Richland in the 1850 census, supporting evidence that they moved to Indiana. [39] [40] [41] [42]

1860 John Moyer (age 64) and Catherine (age 48, born in Bayern?, Germany) lived in Harrison Twp, Elkhart County, Indiana with sons Abraham Moyer (age 22) and Jacob Moyer (age 18), and Catharine Culp (age 11). The adjacent listing was brother Abram Moyer (age 58) and Susanna Moyer (age 56). [43] [44] [45] [46]

1861 J. Meyer had land in the eastern part of the northeast quarter of section 16 of Harrison Twp, Elkhart County, Indiana. Adjacent landholdings for A. Moyer in section 15. Just south in sections 22 and 27 were holdings for Rohrer families (possible in-laws through daughter Harriet). [47] Names on other nearby tracts matched names listed close to John Moyer in the 1860 and 1870 censuses.

1862 There were two newspaper announcements recording that John Moyer had purchased land from the school.

1862 "School Land - John Moyer purchaser. The east half of the north east quarter of section 16 town 36 range 5 east, amount due $215.22." [48] [49]

1862 "School Lane - John Moyer purchaser. The east half of the northeast quarter of section 16 town range 5 east, amount due $215.22." [50] [51]

1863-65 John L. Moyer of Harrison Twp, Elkhart County, Indiana was taxed by the IRS for special income. [52] [53] [54] [55]

1862 There were two newspaper announcements recording that John Moyer was a mortgager of school land.

1871 John Moyer was mortgager of School Land in Harrison Twp, Elkhart County. [56] [57]

1871 "School Land - John Moyer. Mortgagor; all of the east ½ of the north-east ¼ of section 16, in town 36, ranges east, containing 80 acres. Amount due $101.67." [58] [59]

1870 John Myers (age 74) and Catherine Myers (age 56) lived in Harrison, Elkhart County, Indiana with real estate valued at $2,400 and other estate valued at $300. Jacob Myers (age 28), Elisabeth Beutler (age 54, born in Germany), and Mary Oyman (age 7, born in Michigan) were in the same house. Next door were Christian (age 60) and Mary (age 54) Wenger with Elisabeth Oynan (age 14) born in Canada. Also nearby was son Abram Myers (age 32) with wife Ann (age 31) and four children. [60] [61] [62] [63]

1874 An atlas of Elkhart County showed land of J Myer in section 29. The 80 acre tract in section 16, owned in 1861 by J Myer, had name S. Tschupp in 1874. [64] A reference table reported Jacob R Moyer, born in Ashland County, Ohio, came to Elkhart in 1849, with land in section 29 of Harrison township. [65]

J. Myer had land in section 29. Rohrer and Good families lived nearby.

1877 The will of John Moyer, of Harrison Twp, Elkhart County, named wife Catherine and son Jacob. Son Jacob "shall be paid a reasonable sum for his trouble he may have had and may yet have and the remainder to be equally divided amongst all my children". Dated 2 November 1877. Probate January 7, 1878. Witnessed by John Buzzard, John M Christophel, Christian S. Farber. The farm "on which I now live" was bequeathed to Catherine: 15 acres of the north end of the east half of the south east quarter of section 29 in township 36 north of nw qu no 5 east. Jacob R. Moyer paid $2,000. [67]

1878 John Moyer died in Elkhart, Indiana. An obituary reported [68]:

Moyer - Jan. 2nd, 1878, in Harrison township, Elkhart County, Indiana, of dropsy and the infirmities of old age, John Moyer, aged 82 years, 3 mos. and 10 days. He was a son of Christian and Anna Moyer, of Manheim township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In 1826 he came, to Ohio, and in the Fall of 1849 he removed from Ashland County, Ohio, to Elkhart County, Indiana. He was a faithful brother in the Mennonite Church, and though severely afflicted during the latter period of his live, he bore his sufferings with patience and Christian fortitude. His conversation was almost continually about spiritual and heavenly things; he was almost continually singing or repeating passages of Scripture or hymns, and when advised by his family or friends to remain quiet and rest, he replied, that as long as bodily strength remained he must praise his God. He died in the full assurance of a glorious inheritance in the world to come. He was buried at Yellow Creek, followed to his last resting place by a large concourse of friends and relatives. Services by C. Chrisophel, J. F. Funk and others, from Job 19:25. He was the father of eleven children. His grand-children numbered 87, his great-grand-children 65; in all 163.

1878 John Moyer died on January 2 and was buried at Yellow Creek Cemetery. A grave marker reports his birth on September 22, 1795. [69] [70] [71]

1895 Catherine Beutler Moyer died [74] [75] [76]. An obituary reported [77]:

Moyer - On the 8th of August 1895, in Harrison Twp, Elkhart County, Indiana, of paralysis, Catharine Beutler, widow of the late John Moyer, who died some 17 years ago, aged 83 years, 2 months 26 days. She was born in Bavaria on the Rhine, and united with the Mennonite church in her native country. She was married to John Moyer as his second wife, and leaves one son with a number of step-children to mourn her death. In a conversation on the subject of religion, some days before her death she said, "There is nothing in the way, everything looks bright before me." She was buried on the 11th. Services by N. Metzler, J. Loucks and J. F. Funk, from 2 Tim. 6: 6 - 8. May God comfort the bereaved.

1895 "The will of Catherine Moyer of Harrison Township has been probated." [78] [79]

1896 "Wilbur I Stonex [sic] has been appointed administrator of Catherine Moyer, deceased." [80] [81]

1901 Harriet Rohrer, married, died on March 30, at age 66, in South West, Elkhart County, Indiana. She was born in Ohio (Ashland County), daughter of John Moyer and Elisabeth Moyer. [82] [83]

1905 Abraham J Moyer, married, spouse of Anna Moyer, died on December 7, at age 68, in Olive Twp, Elkhart County, Indiana. He was born on May 10, 1837, in Ohio, son of John W Moyer and Elizabeth Moyer. [84] [85]

1906 Barbra Nusbaum, married, spouse of Peter Nusbaum, died on August 1, at age 75, in Elkhart, Elkhart County, Indiana. She was born on August 10, 1830, in Ohio, daughter of John Meyer and Elizabeth Meyer. [86] [87] [88]

Research Notes:

1817 One researcher reports that Elizabeth Albert (daughter of George Albert and Elizabeth Greenwold) and John Moyer were married on October 12, 1817. [92]

1820 Is the Christian Albert listed near John Myers in the 1820 census perhaps related to wife Elizabeth?

1840 Catherine Beutler (born 1800 in Bayern and died 08 Aug 1895) reportedly married John Moyer (born 22 July 1795 Pennsylvania and died 1878) as his second wife. We seek documentation for this relationship. [93]

A biosketch of John W Moyer and Catherine Beutler, both buried at Old Yellow Creek cemetery, names John's parents as Christian Moyer and Anna Bauer. Few other researchers agree with this hypothesis. [94] We seek further documentation about the parents of John Moyer.
