    Charles F. Moyer, a well-known citizen and prominent and prosperous farmer of Newberry township, where his entire life has been passed, was born on his father's farm in this township, in 1879, a son of Paul and Mary (Linton) Moyer. The parents of Mr. Moyer, who were sound and substantial people of their community, passed their lives in the pursuits of the soil in this community and, dying in advanced years, left behind many to mourn them, many who had realized and appreciated their many sterling qualities of heart and mind. Mr. Moyer was eldest in a family of four children, the others being: Perry; Emma, now the wife of Thomas Sowders, and Lula. Charles F. Moyer is indebted to the public schools of Newberry township for his educational training. His boyhood and youth, when he was not engaged in his studies, were passed in assisting his father in the work of the home place, and thus he grew to manhood with a fairly good education and a thorough training in the arts and sciences of husbandry. After he had attained his majority he engaged in farming on his own account, and thus he has continued to be occupied ever since, with constantly- growing success. At this time he is the owner of a productive and valuable farm, with good improvements, and is considered one of the representative agriculturists of his locality. During the war period he performed a good citizen's duty in supporting war enterprises. He takes an earnest interest in the cause of education, is a strong supporter of all measures for the public welfare, and is regarded as one of the useful and constructive members of the community. Mr. Moyer married Minnie, daughter of Jacob and Anna (Rhodes) Fessler, whose father was one of the well- known and highly respected farmers of Newberry township for a period of forty-five years. In the Fessler family there were four children: Charles, Louis, Cora and Minnie. Mr. and Mrs. Moyer are the parents of one daughter, Margaret Viola, who makes her home with them on the farm.
