Hello Virginia, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not related to this family. I'm an Idaho volunteer, and saw your inquiry and looked up the obit for you. I hope this is helpful in connecting you to your missing links. Happy Hunting, Brian

My husbands mothers madien name is Wright, and yes, that would be Creda Wright VanCleave...cool, i'll get back to you, but in the mean time, if you could send me what you have snail mail, anything that i might read, documents of any sort so i can start putting this into my family tree, because we don't have anything on that side. Thanks, Virginia

Sheri
The only things i have on Moyer, are Della Edna Moyer born in Libertville Jefferson Co., Iwoa and married Andrew Mitchell Wright from Sedalia, Pettis Co. Missouri. These seem to be the parents of Orville, but i'm not sure where i got this information, so if you could break it down for me, i may be able to understand and get documantion..
Thanks again,
Virginia
