Moyer, Wm. M., d Mar 27, 1886, aged 55 y 10 m 1 d.
Moyer, Anna, w of Wm. M., b. Aug 8, 1828; d Oct 1, 1894, aged 66 y 1 m 24 d.
William's age/birthdate on his tombstone don't exactly match his age in the census and neither do Anna's.  The question, as always with Wagenseller, is whether the birthdate was on the stone and the age calculated by him or whether the age was on the stone and the birthdate was calculated by him.  Or were both on the stone and the original age calculation was the error?  Whatever, they don't jibe (see next source).

(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
