PETER MOYER, who is engaged in general farming and stock-raising on a farm of 82 1/2 acres located in section 20, Waldo township, was born September 26, 1856, on the home farm in Waldo township and is a son Peter and Elizabeth (Moyer) Moyer.

Peter Moyer, Sr., was born in Germany and there reared to manhood on his father's farm.  He received a good German education and learned the cooper's trade.  When still quite young he came to America, settling in Maryland where, for a short time, he was engaged in farming and also as a mail carrier.  From Maryland he came to Marion County, Ohio, and here married Elizabeth Moyer, a distant relative and a daughter of Henry Moyer, a native of Germany who came to America at an early period and located in Waldo township, Marion County. Ohio, where he was one of the pioneers.  Peter Moyer returned to the farm in Maryland after his marriage, but shortly afterwards came to Ohio and on farm near Akron, Ohio, where he remained but a short time.  He then drove to Marion County and bought 40 acres of virgin timberland in Waldo township.  He and his wife first occupied a log cabin that was on the land, later building a house and barn, besides making many other necessary improvements.  Here Peter Moyer's death occurred in 1860 at the age of 55 years.  His widow survived him until 1900 when she was in her 77th year.  Four children were born to Peter and Elizabeth Moyer, namely:  Lavina, the deceased wife of Peter Moyer, who was not related to this branch of the Moyer family; Daniel, who married Catherine Miller; Elizabeth, who first married Conrad Tanner, and after his death became the wife of Thomas Long; and Peter

Peter Moyer, our subject, was four years old when his father died.  He was reared on the home place and attended district school.  When still a boy in years he took his place in the field and assisted his brother in operating the farm for their mother.  After his marriage he continued to live on the home farm, renting it for 10 years from his mother, until she sold it and purchased the farm on which he now resides and which he bought from his mother's estate.  He was engaged for two years in operating a threshing machine, which he recently sold, and was for some time in the sawmill business with Henry Groll.

Mr. Moyer was first married September 19, 1880, to Viola Boger, a daughter of Simon and Augusta Boger.  Two children were born to this union:  Dennis, who died in 1892 at the age of 11 years; and Eliza, born in 1883, who lives at home.  Mrs. [Viola (Boger)] Moyer died April 21, 1885, and Mr. Moyer was subsequently married June 29, 1888, to Mrs. Louisa Reynolds Osborn, widow of Daniel Osborn and a daughter of John and Mirah (Beard) Reynolds.  Mrs. [Louisa (Reynolds)] Moyer was born November 10, 1865, in Hocking County, Ohio.  Mr. [John] Reynolds is a resident of Lancaster, Ohio, where he operates a grist-mill.  Mrs. [Mirah (Beard)] Reynolds died when Mrs. [Louisa (Reynolds)] Moyer was a young girl.  Mr. and Mrs. [John] Reynolds were the parents of nine children, as follows Alin, married Salem Pierce; Emma deceased at the [age] of 14 years; Elizabeth, who married Richard Haden: Louisa; Letty; Alice, widow of Simon Pugh; Mrs. Zelda [Reynolds] Stagg; Minnie, who first married James Love, and after his death, became the wife of Elza Baete; and Cora, who married Jasper Keiglow.
