Adams Township, Darke County, Ohio 1875
Entire 1875 Adams County Map
Henry Boyer came to Darke County, Ohio, from York County, Pennsylvania, in 1850 with his sister, Mariah Boyer (Etter), her husband, Jacob Etter, and Jacob's family. His eight other brothers and sisters came to Ohio in the next few years. Henry and Mary Ann provided a place to stay for Daniel in 1856 and John H. in 1857.
Henry and Mary Ann lived in Adams Township and were active members of the Old Order River Brethren. In 1856 and 1857, they purchased 12 acres of land in section 9 in the northeast corner of Adams Township. They sold that land in 1859 and purchased 40 acres in the southeast corner of section 11, east of Horatio and just west of Oakland Church and Cemetery. In 1864, they added 40 acres in the southwest corner of section 1, just north of their other property, purchasing that land from Henry D. and Elizabeth Miller. Their land is shown in the 1875 and 1888 Adams Township plot maps. The farm of David Martin is between those plots and near both of them, so Elizabeth Boyer and her future husband John Calvin Martin were neighbors.
In the Versailles Policy of Thursday, February 22, 1917, "Henry Boyer, who has suffered from a stroke of paralysis for some years, died at the home of his son, D. M. Boyer, west of Bradford, Saturday morning."
