Biography of Miss Elizabrth Moses
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Moses, Miss Elizabeth - There is not a name in the vicinity of Hoosick Falls held in more loving veneration than that of the late Dr. Salmon Moses. Here he spent his life in self sacrifice as a physician in administering to the sick and ailing, stilling the fevered brain and allaying the pangs of disease with his skillful hand, and as a devout follower of his Saviour in keeping alive with two or three faithful persons the spiritual life of a church for twenty years, of whom St. Mark's Episcopal church holds in loving memory. Amid all the labor and exhaustion of his professional life for fifteen years he was lay reader, sustaining the services of the church with often but one hearer in the little red schoolhouse on the hill. The beautiful memorial window, showing Moses, the law giver, before the burning bush on Mount Horeb, is truly a very fitting design. He was born at Norfolk, Conn., in 1792, son of a farmer, and first practiced medicine in Petersburgh. He came here in 1821 and continued in practice for fifty years, or until his death in 1874, caused by a gradual breaking down from the weight of his many years. His wife was Sarah Haswell of this place. Seven children survived him, three daughters, of whom Elizabeth is the oldest residing here.
