I have an ancestor, Samuel K. Boyer, Sr (b. 1809) and Samuel K. Boyer, Jr. his son, but cannot find Sam Sr's parents. I was thinking that the K middle initial might be important, and found Joseph Kerr Boyer, born @1800. If he is a brother to our Samuel, someone might know about them. It's a long shot, I know. Samuel K Boyer Sr was born in Newport, which was near Carlisle, PA, where he met his wife, Margaretta Sanno, whose father was at Carlisle Barracks until 1865. Samuel K Boyer Jr's daughter Juniata Boyer married Wilson Kissinger; they were my great grandparents and lived in Perry County, PA. The Kissingers ended up in Mill Hall, PA, now Clinton County.
