Obituary appearing in the Cambridge City Tribune dated 13 May 1920;
- Daniel Boyer, son of Daniel and Rosana Boyer. He was born at East Germantown, IN on August 25, 1843, and departed this life at his home in this city on
May 7, 1920, at the age of 76 years,
8 months and 12 days. His boyhood was spent in the vicinity
of his birth until May, 1862, when
he enlisted in the Sixteenth Indiana infantry and was honorably discharged at the close of the Civil war three years later. He was badly wounded at the battle of Richmond, Ky., and was deprived of active duty several,
months. After the war he moved to Iowa, where he was united by marriage to Adelaide Lankins. To this union eight children were born, two of whom preceded
him in death. The living are Mrs. Belle Craig of Jacksonburg, John of Kansas, Arthur, Alice and Reko of Liberty, and Stephen of Rushville.
From Iowa he moved to Washington and thence to Oregon City, Oregon, where his wife died 27 years ago. He then returned here with his family and took service with James A. Boyd as a farmer until physically incapacitated
several years ago. Beside his 6 children and 17 grandchildren, he leaves two sisters, Mrs Elizabeth Oldaker of Germantown and Mrs Rebecca Swinn of Richmond,
and one brother Chas Boyer of Galesburg, Ills.
Mr. Boyer lived the simple life and believed in honesty and truthfulness. Saturday night the W. R. O. went
to the home of Mrs. Mettert where he lived, and recited their pretty service for the dead. Sunday morning the soldiers of the World war accompanied the remains to the Lutheran church at Germantown, where brief services were held by Rev. Wolf and wife assisted by Mrs. Clarence Ingerman and Mrs. George Babcock. The commitment was in the adjoining cemetery. For him taps have sounded. Beneath the overarching sky, from whose blue field, bright stars and beautiful colors comes our heaven-born flag, which he so gallantly defended, he is forever at rest.
