John Gould Moyer, b.1893 IL, son of Wm./Eva(Gould) Moyer, US Navy admiril
I have an Cabinet Card photograph of “John Gould Moyer - 3 months old - taken Oct. 12, 1893”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Chicago, IL, the location of his birth on July 12, 1893, per his tombstone.
I found John G. Moyer in 1900, living with mother Eva Moyer, in Carroll Co., IN, where they lived with Eva’s parents, John H. and Mary Gould. In 1910, he remained with his grandparents in Carroll Co. Family trees show that John’s father was William Lorenzo Moyer, who died in 1928. By 1930, John lived with wife Marion S. and son and daughter in San Diego Co., CA, where he was a Navy Lt. Commander. Google reports that he was a U.S. Navy rear admiril and the 31st governor of American Samoa. He died 21 Jan 1876 and wife was listed as Frances S. Moyer.
When I got the photo of John Gould Moyer, I also got one of his mother, Eva Gould Moyer, whose 1953 obituary in Carroll Co., IN shows her last name as Clarke.
