I am a volunteer with the American Pomeroy Historic Genealogical Association (APHGA) (see Americanpomeroys.org) We are updating The History and Genealogy of the Pomeroy Family pub 1912, the descendants of Eltweed Pomeroy who came to America from England about 1630.
Page 678 gives this information on the Pomeroy-Rea-MOYLE connection:

I didn't find JOHN and ELVA MOYLE in the Washington State Digital Archives, nor in 1930 US Census.
I haven't found any more information on their daughter, MAY MOYLE.
There was a slim update volume of the Pomeroy genealogy book, pub 1922, but there is no mention of the Rea and MOYLE families.
We're looking for anyone connected with, or having more information on, this family. Thank you!
