Wiley MOYERS has been found with surname spelled MOIERS, MAYER, MAYERS, MEYERS, MYARS. His Headstone reads Wiley MOYERS and he is buried in Moyers Cemetery Rusk, Texas. Because of this I use the surname MOYERS for him.
Wiley Moyers was born 4 Mar 1833 Census data says in North Carolina. There is a possibility the family moved to Tennessee then migrated to Texas. Wiley Married Mary Ann WAGGONER in Cherokee County, Texas 24 Dec 1850.

His Daughter Mary Jane is Jo Ann’s Great Grandmother.
I need his parents and siblings or at least other family that migrated to Texas in 1850 and the years prior to that. Any family members named Wiley Wylie and variations can also help as this is not a common family name.
