Migration of the Moyere family to the New World and Oceana
was made a republic after the First World War. The Austro-Hungarian Empire was broken up by the Treaty of Versailles and many of its people found themselves in the new nation of Czechoslovakia. Many other Austrians and expatriate Austrians made their way to North America in the 20th century. Most landed in Philadelphia, later continuing on to the states of Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Some Austrian
settlers also went to western Canada and Ontario. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Moyere or a variant listed above: Caspar Moyer, whose Oath of Allegiance was recorded in Pennsylvania in 1736; Georg Mauer, Johann Jacob Mauer, and John Maur with his wife and five children, all of whom emigrated to England
and/or America in 1709. Johann Nicolas Mauerer came to Philadelphia in 1739.
