  • Note: Christian Moyer, b. 1680, d. 1751. On the fourth and fifth of October, 1738, Henry Ruth and his wife Modlena, of Salford, by deed of lease and release granted to Henry Funk, Dielman Kolb, Christian Moyer, Jr., and Abraham Reiff ten acres and forty perches of land, part of his homestead tract. With this gift of land, they started the Salford Mennonite Church. Funk was a bishop, Kolb a minister, and Moyer and Reiff were deacons or "Vorsteher." He married Barbara. Children: i Barbara Bergey Moyer b. 1705, d. 1773. ii Christian Moyer b. 1705, d. Apr-1782. iii Ann Moyer b. 1707, d. 8-Jul-1758. iv Jacob Moyer. v Samuel Moyer. vi Elizabeth Moyer. Christian Meyer, the paternal ancestor of this sketch, was a landowner in Lower Salford township, Montgomery county, as early as 1719, and possible some years earlier, and was one of the founders of the earliest congregations of Mennonites in that locality. All of the earlier generations of the family belonged to that sect, though many of their descendants now belong to other denoninations. Christian Meyer died in June 1757, leaving three sons , Christian, Jacob and Samuel, the last of whom settled in Hilltown; their daughters Elizabeth, who married Nicholas Oblinger; Anna, who married Henry Funck, and Barbara, who married Abraham Reiff. The descendants of the two latter are now quite numberous in Bucks county. Source: A Genealogical and Personal History of Bucks County, Pennsylvania - By William W. H. Davis - Edited by Warren S.
