    The Family of Edward Nelson 'Ed' and Ruth Alfrida (Young) Moyers
    The Family of Edward Nelson "Ed" and Ruth Alfrida (Young) Moyers
    Ed Moyers was married at age 32 on January 21, 1920, to Ruth Young (she was age 24). As they started "later" in life than the siblings of Ed Moyers, their children were the last of their generation born in the family (younger brother, Hally Moyers', children were all born between 1909 and 1926).

    This photograph was taken most probably between about 1940 and 1945, and can be identified with the following family members: Back row, left to right: Caroline Ellen Moyers, Lloyd Arthur Moyers, and Ethel Louise Moyers. Front row, left to right: Mabel Elna Moyers, Edward Nelson "Ed" Moyers, Elizabeth Ann "Betty" Moyers, Ruth (Alfrida) Moyers, and Doyle Edward Moyers Sr.

    The Ed Nelson Moyers Home
    This photograph was in the tribute to Ethel Louise Moyers upon her death. It is the house in Benton Township, Des Moines County, Iowa, where Edward Nelson "Ed" Moyers and Ruth Alfrida Youngberg began their family. Judging from the electrification nearby, I am estimating this photograph was taken in about 1940.

Ethel Louise Moyers is in the back on the right, Lloyd, Ruth, the mother of the three Moyers children here, and Caroline are in the front. Ruth died in February 1970, this was probably not too long before that.

The women in the back are Elizabeth Ann "Betty" Long, Mabel Elna Haines, Ethel Louise Moyers, and Caroline Ellen Bailey. Lloyd Arthur Moyers and Doyle Edward Moyers Sr. are sitting in the front. The man asleep on the couch on the right side of the picture may be a husband of one of the women.

    This was a photograph my mother, Hattie "Leota" (Walker/Krekel) Brumm had which was not identified. Having seen a number of photographs of the children of Ed and Ruth (Youngberg) Moyers, I can now confidently claim the two women on it are Ethel and Caroline Moyers. It was probably taken in about 1945.
