Our thanks for preparing the Heath Cemetery go to Sally Edwards, who is researching the Herkimer/Montgomery Counties surnames Moyer/Mayer/Meyer - DeBus, Dabush, DuBois - Swartwout. Sally assisted us last winter in preparing the large Village of Mohawk Cemetery. If you missed Sally's description of her Moyer and Swartwout search, here's your chance to read it again:

"I would love to contact anyone related to either Moyer family mentioned below or Swartwout descendants of Johannes Swartwout and Aaltje Bedell. My ancestors from both these families emigrated to Norwich, Oxford Co., Ontario in the late 1820's with many other descendants of early NY settlers... Motts, Tuttle, Nellis, Sitts (Suits), Smith, Anstice, etc."

Henry John Moyer (1767-1842) and Barbara Debus/Dubois(1771-1853), possibly the daughter of Henrich Debus/Debush/Debois, were married 10 Feb 1795 at the Dutch Reformed Church in German Flatts. Their eldest son Peter Moyer, born 1797, married Nancy Moyer, born 1798. Peter and Nancy Moyer had no children but had two wards - Lorenzo Dow Nellis and Mary Esther Nellis, who were both mentioned in their wills.

Nancy died 1881 in Dereham, Oxford Co., Ontario, leaving bequests to her surviving siblings or their children:

  • Christian Moyer, born 1808, of Dereham, Ont.
  • John Moyer, born 1812 (wife Temperance R. Cole) of Dereham, Ont.
  • Henry Moyer of Herkimer Co.
  • Joseph Moyer of Black Lake, NY
  • Sarah Moyer Younglove of Lawrenceberg, NY
  • Betsey Moyer Hammond Monk of Syracuse, NY
  • Mary Moyer Davis, wife of Christian Davis, of Oneida NY
  • and Peter Moyer, half brother, of Stark, Herkimer Co.

Henry & Barbara Moyer's eldest daughter, Elizabeth Moyer, born 1800, married Abraham Price, of German Flatts, Herkimer Co. Another son, Jacob Moyer, born 1801, married Mary Swartwout, daughter of Abraham Swartwout (1781-1868) and Elizabeth (?) Phelps (1787-1862). Abraham Swartwout, son of Johannes Swartwout (1753-1823) and Aaltje Bedell (1759-1813), was probably living in Oppenheim, Montgomery Co. 1808-1823 near his parents.
