Moyer, Lincoln

Regimental Number: 883470
Rank: Private
Branch: 31st Battalion

Lincoln was born in Breslau, Ontario on November 28, 1882. In 1916, he filed on a homestead at SE 35-70-12-W6. Lincoln appears to have been related to Gordon Moyer, as they were born in the same town and he appointed Simon Moyer (Gordon’s father) as executor of his will. He died of shrapnel wounds to his legs, hand, and thigh on August 18, 1917 at the No. 6 Casualty Clearing Station at Bruay.
