I have a photo in my grandmother's files of Mr. and Mrs. Geo, Hudson home
in Winfield, KA. no address given. Judging from the vehicle in front
perhaps a touring car model A or T tpye (don't know old cars very well) and
the sepia toned photo, it was proabably early 1900's. The photo of the
house in Winfield, KA. (Mr and Mrs. Geo Hudson home) is an unknown
relationship, my father now 81 thinks they may have been my grandmother's
cousins and maybe had a jewelry shop somewhere. They would have been
related to MOYER. Do you have any knowledge of this line?
My MOYER line was in MO. but grandmother corresponded with and visited some
MOYER cousins in KA. I know they were in Ray county MO. but lose them from
there. As a child I visited with grandma the following places. Jefferson
City, MO. Richmond, MO. Eldorado, KA.and Witchita, KA. Unfortunately I was
to young to remember names of these elderly people. I hope we can make a
Seeking any information concerning MOYER family. Benjamin F. MOYER b. in
Orange County, IN. in 1833. Benjamin F. was a prominent farmer in Ray Co.
following Civil War. Married Olive HULL 1857. 3 Children lived to
adulthood. Fanny married Theodore WORTHING or WARDEN or WARTHEN, Alice married
George STIGALL, Josephine married David RIDER. As late as 1950's some
relatives were in Richmond area. Benjamin also had brothers living or
visiting in MO. WILLIAM H. b. 1843 in IL supposedly died in Richmond June
27, 1879. His wife Elle, and children Srilda and William H. Jr. were
probably still in Indiana. Bothers James A.MOYER b. 1841 and John W.
MOYER b. 1839 may also have lived in the area. They may also have moved
to KA. My grandmother visited MOYERS in both states as late as 1950.
Benjamin's mother was Sarah Pippen who probably moved to Ray county
following the death of her husband Paul Nathan MOYER in Paris, IL.
Paul Nathan MOYER and Sarah PIPPEN were married in Orange County, IN.They
came from NC and SC respectively. Sarah had a sister, I believe, who
married George MOCK. Both families moved to Paris, IL. I have some
information of the MOCKfamily. I think there may also have been MOCK
families in your area.
Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated. I have quite a
bit of information on early MOYERS to share. I also have many photos
(including Civil War photo of Benjamin F.) and a few letters. I'm really
hopeful you have some answers.

I was just thrilled to find your site and wanted to let you know I am
doing family lines in Winfield and having a hard time finding the person
I want to find. I have a lady in Utah that has opened some doors for me.
I am wanting some information on the SE Compton Co. that was around in
1905. I was wondering what sort of business it was. My great gr. mother
and gr. gr father worked as a team. I am also looking for her. She show
us on a city directory in 1908 with her husband and 1905 alone but I can
not find a death for her. Not sure where to turn. Limited on funds to
make phone calls. She resided in the home on Leonard Heth in 1905. But
not 1910. Any suggestions? I know she must have died between 1908 and
1910 since Leonard has her child. The child was raised by an aunt since
the death of her mother. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
