Child of Johanna Moser

Elizabeth Martha Moser+ (1839 - 1922)
  • The identification of Johanna Moser, second wife of George Harvey, with the daughter of Henry Moser and Mary Henneberry is unproven. Similarly it is only a plausible assumption, for now, that she is the mother of Elizabeth Martha Moser, wife of John Harvey.

James Moser

M, #155, (c 1804 - )

Parents:

Father: Henry Moser (1771 - c 1853)
Mother: Mary Henneberry (c 1778 - a 1851)

Children of James Moser and Margaret Woodin

William Moser2 (c 1829 - )
Eunice Maria Moser+ (1831 - a 1870)
Edward Moser+3 (1837 - 1920)
Lydia Jane Moser+ (1839 - 1891)

Charles Moser5 (c 1845 - 1935)
Alice Moser5 (c 1848 - )
Enos Emery Moser5 (c 1850 - )

  •      I have included the children William, Charles, Alice, and Enos found with James and Margaret in the 1871 Census (Necum Teuch) along with Edward. Charles, who never married, is still with his parents in 1881, and with his widowed mother in 1891 (e.g. see my online transcription of the 1891 Smiths Cove Census).

         It seems quite likely that this James and Margaret should be identified with James Moser, son of Henry Moser and Mary Henneberry, and his wife Margaret Woodin; however, I have not yet taken this step.1

  •      There is some doubt as to whether the James Moser who married Margaret Woodin is the James Moser, son of Henry Moser & Mary Henneberry.
         
    It is also unclear whether this is the "James and Margaret Moser" couple who appear in the 1871 and 1881 Censuses of Necum Teuch, with son Charles. Charles also appears in the 1891 Census for Smiths Cove with his widowed mother Margaret (household #55 in my onlin transcription)

         Update: I have now (5 July 2008) identified the two "James and Margaret" couples. The primary reason for making this assumption is that Charles's mother is reported to be Margaret Woodin on his death certificate in 1935. Charles appears with James and Margaret in the 1871, 1881, and 1891 censuses (only with widowed mother Margaret in 1891).1
