I am not related to this family in any way but I have come across an very very old original newspaper, The Wakarusa Tribune, Thursday, 11 April 1907, from Wakarusa, Indiana.
In reading through it I found two obituaries for Jacob Moyer.It is not often that you find an obituary for someone that is born in the early to mid 1800's so I hope by posting it here it will help someone researching the Moyer family.
It appears that some of the info in each obit is conflicting but I will leave that to a Moyer family member to straighten out.
