HARVEY W. MOYER

HARVEY W. MOYER, Among Chalfont's progressive and public-spirted citizens must be numbered Harvey W. MOYER. Mr. MOYER is a son of Levi S. MOYER, who learned the trade of a miller at DIEHL'S mill near Hellertown, Pennsylvania, and afterward purchased the property and the business. Subsequently he engaged in business as a butcher. He married Caroline, daughter of Shelly WEINBERGER, of Milford, and the following children were born to them: Clinton W.; Mary A.; Joseph W.; Emma W.; and Harvey W., mentioned at length hereinafter. The parents of these children were as their names would indicate, of German descent.

Harvey W. MOYER, son of Levi S. and Caroline (WEINBERGER) MOYER, was born June 21, 1868, in Bingham, Northampton county, Pennsylvania, and was educated in the public schools of his birthplace. There also he was trained by his father to the occupation of a butcher, and followed the business for four years. Beginning in a small way and on borrowed capital, his efforts were crowned with success, and he was enabled to discharge his obligations and moved to Chalfont, and is now at the head of a large establishment, his connections extending throughout the adjacent country. He is a successful, business man and has built for himself a comfortable and attractive home. He is active as a citizen, and has been chosen by his neighbors a member of the town council, an office which he still holds. In politics he is a Republican, and in religion a member of the Mennonite church. Mr. MOYER married, December 29, 1892, Lizzie S., born November 23, 1871, daughter of Abram and Ellamina (SLEIFER) KULP, and three children have been born to them: Florence, who was born January 30, 1894; Grace Lorene, born October 14, 1896; and Ray K., born November 23, 1898, and died July 19, 1900.
