Daniel Webster Boyer

Date of birth recorded in D.W. Boyer family Bible.

Substantial farmer in Nodaway Co. (northwest corner) Missouri.
Devoted member of the Church of Brethren (Dunkard); helped establish congregations in both Nodaway & Johnson Counties. He sold his Worth Co. farm, retired to Warrensburg in 1903; charter member, Church of Brethren, Warrensburg. Headstone notes "153rd Indiana Infantry." "History of Nodaway County, Missouri" further describes the migration of Daniel W.'s brother-in-law, Elijah Reddick (married to his sister, Mary Boyer) to northwest Mo., where they jointly, with families named McGlaughlin and Allyn, obtained land, part of which was donated by the Reddicks for the site of a Brethren church. Churches were probably established by these Boyer families in the small towns of Sheridan in Worth County, (or possibly Orrsburg, where only a cemetery remains) and in Hopkins in adjacent Nodaway County. The one in Hopkins was soon sold (during the 1870's) for the sum of $400 to the Baptist Church - probably the site of the present Baptist church in the town.
