Mr. Oyer is a fifth generation Floridian, archaeologist, avid historian and a descendant of one of the earliest pioneer families in South Florida. He is the great-great grandson of Captain Hannibal Dillingham Pierce and his wife Margretta Moore Pierce, who in 1872 became one of the first non-Native American families to settle in Southeast Florida. His family were the first keepers of the Orange Grove House of Refuge and among the first explorers to visit Delray Beach, transporting Mr. William Linton down the canal in their boat in the 1800’s. Mr. Oyer is also the great-grand nephew of Charlie Pierce, the subject of his book series.
