9.  Charles C. Boyer.  1915.  American Boyers.  Press of the Kutztown Publ. Co., Kutztown, PA (online at GenealogyLibrary.com).  This author is prone to making unsupported connections, so do not accept anything he says as proven without documenting it.  For example, just because the Andreas BEYER born in 1710 came from Ebstein to Berks Co., PA, in no way proves that the Andreas BEYER born in 1681 who came to Berks Co., PA, in 1738, also came from Ebstein.  Similarly, there is nothing to prove that George BEYER is the son of Martin BEYER; George could easily have been an immigrant, himself.  Of course, if someone has since found the evidence proving these connections, I would appreciate being informed.
p. 210
ANDREAS BEYER (BEIER)

From the fact that another Andreas Beyer, born Feb. 2, 1710, came from Ebstein, Palatinate Germany, and settled in Tulpehocken Twp., Berks County, Pa., quite close to Berne Twp., Berks Co., Pa., the historian infers that the Berne Andreas Beyer also came from the neighborhood of Ebstein, Palatinate Germany.  Andreas Beyer, of Berne Township, was born in 1681, as we know from his age--57--in 1738, when he landed, Sept. 5th, at Philadelphia, Pa., with his four sons.  See the ship list, Vol. 17, Second Series, Pennsylvania Archives.  The ship that brought this family was the "Winter Galley."  The sons, with their age, are named, but no mention is made of the mother.  Perhaps the mother was dead.  Perhaps the older boys came with wives, but there is no record of such wives.  The family was of Lutheran origin, as we judge from their affiliations both in Carbon and Berks counties.  We do not know where Andreas Beyer is buried.  The children were John Philip [Part I], John Jacob [Part II], Philip [Part III], and Martin [Part IV]...

p. 250
PART IV

B (4) Martin Beyer, son of Andreas Beyer and wife, was born 1720, Palatinate, Germany.  Came Sept. 5, 1738, with father and brothers. There are no traces of his descendants to be found, unless George Boyer, of Windsor Twp., Berks County, Pa. was a son. 

C (1) George Beyer, probably the son of Martin Beyer, one of the four sons of the immigrant Andreas Beyer. The first Boyer baptism recorded in St. Paul's Church, Windsor Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, is that of John George Beier, son of George Beier, May 10, 1756. From the fact that Samuel Beyer, son of Christian Beyer and his wife--of the historian's family tree--was baptized in this congregation February 1, 1807, the historian believes that the above named George belongs to the same "tree," and although John George Beyer is the only child of George Beyer (Beier) recorded in St. Paul's Church, the historian believes that John George Beyer had at least the following brothers: Jacob, Benjamin, and Daniel. These three appear in Richmond Twp., Berks Co., Pa., as early as 1772. In the Richmond Tax-list Jacob Beyer is recorded as an "inmate." This term probably denotes that he was "at home" in the township for the time being, but that he really belonged to a neighboring township. Whether these four boys were really brothers or not, may never be known, but one thing is certain, that the descendants of Jacob Beyer, a number of whom the historian has seen and known, resemble his own people so closely that there can be almost no doubt of the family connections.

p. 251 D (2) Jacob Beyer, probably a son of George Beyer and his wife, was very likely born in Windsor Twp., Berks Co., Pa., about 1750-1755, judging from Richmond Twp. Taxlists. He appears in this township as an "inmate" in 1772, a young man. From accounts found in Moselem Church, Richmond Twp., he was a "carpenter." This occupation would account for his being only an "inmate" in the township. He must have been "of age" in 1772 in order to be taxed, and not a property holder, but a "boarder." His youngest child was born in 1811, so that he probably died some years later. He married Rebecca Elizabeth (or Margaret) Adolph, as certificates in the hands of Joel Boyer, Moselem, show, and then lived near Moselem Church. Children: Samuel, George? David? Solomon, John Henry, and Polly...

Married Sarah Lukens, born March 11, 1792. She died Dec. 11, 1858. Children: Samuel, girl, Levi, and John...
