Mosher, Harvey, with his wife, whose maiden name was Rebecca West, were passen gers on the first boat to Albion in 1826. He came to make a home in this then new country, and settled on a 100 acre tract of land in the town of Barre (now Albion) on which George W. Ferguson now lives. Here Mr. Mother lived until 1855 when he died. His wife died in 1889. Harvey Mosher was a successful farmer. and unlike many of those who came to this region at an early date, he possessed enough money to pay for his farm at the time of its purchase. His children were Eliza A., who married Truman Gregory; H. Maria, who married Henry Sloper; Henry, who died in Michigan in 1857; James H., now a farmer in Van Buren county, Mich.; Anzoretta, who died in infancy; Edward, of Albion, and Melvina, who married Chester Warner. Edward Mosher was born September 12, 1835, and has always been a farmer. He was educated in the district schools and at the old Albion Academy. His father died when Edward was twenty years old, after which the latter took charge of the farm and worked it successfully. He came to his present farm in 1869. In February, 1861, Mr. Mosher married Ellen, daughter of Cyrus Thompson, of Carlton. Three children have been born to them, viz: Gertrude, wife of W. Simmons; Harvey, now in Rochester, and Ralph, at home with his parents.
