Biography of Charles Mosier
Erie County, NY Biographies


Mosier, Charles, Buffalo, is a young man whose progression has been equaled by few men of his age. He was born in Buffalo, N. Y., in 1861, a son of John Mosier, who came to Buffalo about 1842. He received a common schoot education in the public schools, and when fourteen years of age began to work at carpentry, mastering the trade and caring for himself from that time. He later began contracting and building on his own account, and for a number of years was connected in partnership with Mr. Fitzpatrick, and later succeeded this copartnership. Mr. Mosier has also mastered the mason business, and has acquired the knowledge and art of architecture, and is thus able to figure on any department or branch of the builder's work, these acquirements having placed him in the front rank of the builders of Buffalo. For his own buildings he draws his own plans, and among the many large buildings he has erected are four of the city public school buildings. In 1887 he established his office at 1266 Seneca street, and furnishes employment to from forty to fifty men the year round. In politics Mr. Mosier is a Republican, and in the spring of 1897 was appointed civil service commissioner by Mayor Jewett. He has been ward committeeman for a number of years, and is a member of the order of Odd Fellows. In 1884 he married Margaret Cullen, and they have one daughter.
