  • Notes  Married:
    • American Boyers 1984 ed, p. 639: Jacob Boyer b. 1813 at Rowlandville, now part of Philadelphia, PA married Elizabeth Merion, a Quakeress. Children: George W., Anna, Sarah, Elizabeth, Jacob, Herny, John, Adelbert, Leah, and Brunner.

      The 1850 census shows that Margaret Merion, age 21 is living in the household of Jacob Boyer, along with George Boyer, age 2, and two others named John and Elizabeth Butler (no known relation).  Jacob's wife in future census' (including 1860 and 1870) is named Margaret, and the ages mach Margaret Merion's age in the 1850 census - so it is on this basis that we conclude for now that Margaret Boyer was Margaret Merion before her marriage to Jacob Boyer sometime between the 1850 census and the birth of her first child cir 1851.

      A fascinating glimpse at family life is provided in the 1870 census which shows the children in the family - even Lizze, age 13 - as "Works in Wollen Mill".  Bill Boyer thinks perhaps this was Whitaker's Mill in the Olney section of Philadelphia. [1, 2]
