Thursday, November 25, l920
ROBERT R. MOYERS, son of ABRAHAM and POLLY (MILLER) MOYERS, was born March 22nd, l830, near Felicity, Clearmont County, Ohio, where he grew to manhood. He departed this life at his home near Weldon, Iowa, November 6th, l920, aged 90 years, 7 months and 4 days. In l854 MR. MOYERS came with his widowed mother, to Clarke County, Iowa, where he entered the land on which he lived until the time of his death. He was the youngest and last of a family of four brothers and seven sisters to pass on to the life beyond.
On Dec. 26th, l860, he was united in marriage to ELIZABETH H. MYERS. To this union were born one son, ARMANDUS, and three daughters, EFFIE J. HORNER, ARLINE, and EDITH HAILEY, of Oskaloosa. The son and one daughter, EFFIE, have passed on before. His wife died October l0th, l889, since which time his daughter, ARLINE, has kept his home. Besides the daughters, he leaves to mourn his loss two sons-in-law, two grandsons, one granddaughter and one great granddaughter and numerous other relatives and friends. MR. MOYERS was never happier than when surrounded by his family. This pleasure was enjoyed by him during the last days of his illness and all were present at the time of his death. A nephew, FRANK P. MOYERS, of Downing, Mo., came for the funeral services.
MR. MOYERS' home was opened at different times to orphan children, who came into the home, receiving equally with the daughters of the home. In the passing of this pioneer, the children have been bereft of a kind, loving and indulgent father and the community a sincere friend. One of his chief characteristics was honesty in all dealings and a genial personality. His friends were legion and his death will bring sorrow to great numbers who had known him so long, and held him in such high esteem. When a young man, MR. MOYERS was a carpenter and helped (*the rest is missing.)
