    • For a time after the birth of daughter Frances, the Moyers family lived in Robstown, Texas. A card, undated, from Iva Marie Dotson was sent to Frances there. As Pearl was listed in City Directories up until 1909 and in the 1910 federal census in Yellow Spring Township, Des Moines County, Iowa, it probably was soon after 1910. By 1915 he and Jessie were living in Wapello Township, Louisa County, Iowa.
