The two sons of Mr. Moses, William O. and Albert, having completed their education in the High School of their native city, united with their father in ship building, in 1856, making the firm W. V.

Freeman, Riverside, North Star, Invincible, Franconia, Palestine, Lucy Melville, G. Strickland, Oleron, Frank Haynie, and Lizzie Moses.

The business career of William V. Moses was one of success. This was well earned by his;Invariable attention to his business, his strict integrity, and pleasing manners. With a fine physique was added a uniformly cheerful countenance. In his just and upright walk he made no enemies. Without taking active part in political party matters he was ever a solid Democrat. In religious sentiments he affiliated with the Swedenborgian denomination, and was, through life, a practical, temperate man in all things. Of such a man it may be unnecessary to add that he lived and died a most respected citizen.
