      Otto Jacob Moyer

      Otto Jacob Moyer, the youngest son of Rev. M.S. Moyer & Anna Moyer was born in the farm home near Bethel Church in Moniteau Co., Mo., on Nov. 26, 1890. He attended the West View School until he was ten years of age when he came to Grant Co., Okla., with his parents where he helped with the farm work and also attended the D. C. School completing all the H. S. work they offered at that time, after which he attended Bethel College during the 1912-13 year. Then he entered A. & M. College at Stillwater, taking the Agricultural Course from which he graduated in 1917. He was a good student, receiving several honors for good work, one being a trip as representative of A. & M. to an agricultural convention at Amherst, Mass., on this trip he visited in our old home in Mo. also at Summerfield, Ill., and in Penn. in the neighborhood where Father was born & raised. After graduating he spent 2 years in the farm extention work carried on by A. & M. College.

      In 1919 he went into partnership with Will on the farm, they started raising pure bred Shorthorns but this was not very profitable, later started with Shropshire sheep which has been more satisfactory. On Nov. 14, 1920, he was united in marriage with Ruth Hohman of D. C. they were married in the D. C. church.

      Ruth is the oldest daughter of Justis & Elizabeth Hohman living a mile south of D. C. Mr. Hohman was born in Germany and came to America at the age of about 17.

      On Fri., Jan, 13, 1922, a daughter, Josephine Pearl, was born. On Fri., Aug. 13, 1926, twin boys were born to them. They named them Jerauld Hohman & Donald, but in Jan., 1927, Donald was taken to live with the angels in Heaven.

      In the spring of 1932 Otto worked for the Okla. Wheat Growers Ass., soliciting new members for them mostly in the N. W. part of the State. In March, 1933, he moved to Miami, Okla. where he was employed as Co. Agricultural Agent for Ottowa Co. He remained here until in the fall of 1935 when he was transferred to the agency of Tulsa Co. considered the best Co. agency in the State. He is living in Tulsa and has his office in the Federal Building.

      In about 1904 or 05 he was baptized by the late Rev. H. R. Voth and united with the D. C. Mennonite Church. At present they attend and sing in choir of the Boston Ave. M. E. Church of Tulsa. He has for the past 10 years been the Okla. director of the Midwest Wool Marketing Ass. which holds its directors meetings in Kansas City, Mo. He was for several years a director of the Okla. Livestock Marketing Ass. of O. C.

      While he was farming he lived on and operated the John Merrett farm, of which he is part owner. In the spring of 1944 he sold the S.E. 40, all he owned of the place, to John & Will. On Sept. 28 his father-in-law, Justus Hohman died of an heart ailment.
