Moritz & Marie Beier: Move to Noack, Texas

Rudolph Beyer (1969):  Finally he [Moritz Beier] bought 2 horses, one a mare, & raised a mule colt.  Moritz also had a brother name Carl Beyer, who came to the U.S. earlier and seems he too landed at Paige, but soon drifted to Beyersville Texas, & lived just East of where the Bachmayer Brothers Gin is now. . . . 

After Moritz & Marie had 2 horses and a cheap wagon, they made a trip to Beyersville Texas to visit his Brother, Carl & his Wife Annie & Family.  The next day being the 4th of July, as Father often mentioned, he joined Carl for a trip to Taylor, 7 miles from Carl’s home.  The Taylor Fire Department were Celebrating the 4th and a few were waving $1.00 bills.  This was something Moritz never saw before, and he turned to Carl & said, "It looks like this is a prosperous place to live.  How is chances to find a place to live & farm near Taylor?"  Carl answered, "Next fall, load your belongings on the wagon & come on, and there is always a plot of land with an old house.  If you & Marie care to start off farming here, we’ll find some thing."
