Biography of Leonard P. Mosier
Barton, Tioga County, NY Biographies





LEONARD PRATT MOSIER, son of William and Julia L. (Ross) Mosier, was born February 2, 1842, in Towanda, Pa. Here he was educated in the common schools, and shortly after attaining his majority on June 7, 1863, he enlisted in Co. A, 35th Penn. militia. Honorably discharged a few months later from this regiment, he, a few months after, enlisted at Owego in the 50th N. Y. Engineers, and served until the close of the war, returning with an honorable discharge and a broken down constitution. It took him many months after the war ended to establish in some part his health. He then for six years did carpentry at various places. He then was employed as a saw fitter and later as head sawyer in a saw mill. He held this position for fifteen years, his impaired health preventing him from constant labor. And so he has lived an honest, useful life, which was rendered one of suffering by his devotion to the Union. Mr. Mosier married Jane, daughter of Elias and Lucretia (Elliott) Post. Of their five children only one, Rollon Mosier, attained maturity.
