  • Notes 
    • William Moyer, "was born within a few miles of Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, October 27th, 1809. In 1825 he came to Canada with his parents and made Waterloo County his home. His first years in this county were spent in following his trade, namely in contracting and building all kinds of mason work. During his time he constructed many a stone house and put up the stone foundations of mostly all the bank barns built in the township between the years 1826 and 1838. On December 15th, 1835, he was married to Mary, daughter of Peter and Susannah (Bomberger) Erb. She was born October 16th, 1818. After their marriage they resided in Preston, thence, in 1837, moved on a farm near Williamsburg where they lived for some years, then moved on the farm now owned by Isidore B. Snyder, a little east of Berlin. Here they resided until his death which took place June 23rd, 1877 (While unloading a load of gravel on Foundry Street, Berlin, one of the horses kicked him, causing instant death). Some time after his death his widow moved to Berlin where she still resides. To them was born a family of eight children"1a
