BIOGRAPHY: The History of the town of Paris and the valley of the Sauquoit
Paris, Oneida, New York
Published 1881

p. 115 - "Major William Gere built the first tannery at East Sauquoit, at the foot of the hill on the south side of the road leading to Norwich Corners. After a few years he met with reverses, and the property went into the hands of Seth Smith, who exchanged it for a farm with Josiah Mosher, in the Porter neighborhood. Mr. Mosher and his sons, George W. and S. Emerson, carried on the tannery some years."

p. 165 - Members of the Methodist congregation of East Sauquoit: "Dr. Rufus Priest...(the old choir leader,) Josiah Moshier, and his sons George and Emerson...Zabine Luce,...Enos Knight, and his [son] William...."

p. 197 - Leverett Bishop, M. D., and Josiah Mosher included in a list of members of the Masonic "PARIS LODGE, NO. 348, F. AND A. M." They may have been among the first members when this lodge was charted in 1822. William Knight was a "W. Master" from 1828-1830 and from 1832-1834. William Knight became a member 7 Jun 1824. George W. Mosher became a member 5 Jul 1824. "Old Paris Lodge, No. 348, shared the fate of many others, and fell a victim to the Morgan excitement, and met for the last time December 30, 1833, soon after which it surrendered its charter, but at the earnest appeal of Worshipful William Knight, he was permitted by the Grand Lodge to retain the register of proceedings and the jewels of solid silver, which he carefully preserved for more than fifteen years, and transmitted them to Sauquoit Lodge, No. 150."

pp. 219-222 - [Some of the following sketch in the history is inaccurate but I will try to only copy the valid portions.] "Josiah Mosher was born in Pepperell, Mass., in [1757]. ... He came to Paris with his brother and family in 1791, a sister, Mrs. Grimes, riding on horseback the entire distance, the trip occupying about two weeks. For a riding whip, she cut a sprout from a cherished willow tree on the old homestead at Pepperell, which she carried in her hand, and upon dismounting in the valley of the Sauquoit, she stuck it down in the moist ground near the creek, where it took root and grew to be a mighty tree, from which other sprouts, in great number, were cut and set out in the same manner, and the place became noted for the great number of those trees, and in time came to be called "Willowvale," most of which, up the hillside, Josiah Mosher settled. He afterward exchanged his farm for the Major Gere tannery and farm at East Sauquoit. After a long life of usefulness, the old Revolutionary [soldier] and [hero of] many a well-fought field, went to his rest, August, [1847], aged [90]. There survive of his children here, Rebekah, widow of Dr. Rufus Priest, now wife of Dr. L. Bishop, and Cornelia, wife of S. A. Millard. Josiah Mosher, Jr., went to Kentucky at an early day, and kept the hotel at the Mammoth Cave, one of the great natural wonders of the continent. S. Emerson, the old schoolmaster, married the eldest daughter of Henry Crane, and removed to Oneida, Ill., some years ago, where he died; the other son, George W., died many years ago. He was an active member of old Paris Lodge F. & A. M., admitted July 5, 1824. Betsey Mosher, who married a Mr. Cook, reared a family of six [seven]--four boys and two [three] girls: Edward, W. Newton, Josiah, Henry, Jane and Harriet. She died a year or two since, and her children survive her, except Josiah, who died a few years since, in Michigan. Edward is a well known business man in Oswego county, where he has resided many years; W. Newton is one of the pioneers of Grand Rapids, Mich., and has witnessed its growth from the wilderness to a city; he is a prominent business man there, ex-alderman, and has held other offices of trust. ... Henry resides in the vicinity of Grand Rapids, and is a prosperous farmer. Jane, who married John Crane, and after the loss of their farm-house by fire, on the morning of May 1, 1872, and the untimely death of her husband a few days later, rented the farm, and lives with a married daughter--Mrs. Celia Maltby, at West Sauquoit. Harriet Cook, the youngest daughter, ... in the early days of Mormonism, embraced that faith, and married, or was sealed, (his second [plural] wife,) to the late Governor Brigham Young, by whom she had one son, grown to manhood, a ... business man in Salt Lake City, Utah. Belinda Mosher married Captain William Knight, and in February, 1836, while he was at Albany as Member of Assembly, she died instantly, of heart disease, leaving five children, the youngest--Charles--an infant. The sad event occurred during the 'deep snow of 1836,' which covered the ground to the depth of six feet. In those days there were no telegraphs, and the roads being obstructed by the snow, some delay occurred in getting the sad news to Mr. Knight; when received, he set out at once, and traveling night and day, crushed with grief, made all the progress possible. The day of the funeral arrived. Kind neighbors turned out and shoveled a deep cut through the snow from the door of his residence up to the old churchyard, and a space around the open grave, near where the Academy now stands. The cut was made wide enough for the bier and the bearers — there being no hearse in those days, their beautiful dead being tenderly borne on a bier by four selected bearers to the last resting place — and such was the great depth of snow, that the procession was hid from view in the cut. The friends and mourners assembled; the services were delayed a reasonable time, hoping for the arrival ot the absent husband and father, but at length proceeded with; before the completion of which, a jaded team came wallowing through the deep snow, the Captain leaped from the sleigh, and a moment later was bending over the corpse of his beautiful wife, whom a few weeks before he had left in perfect health, and the full flush of matronly beauty, — the weeping children clinging the while to the grief-distracted father; a heart-rending scene, never effaced from the memory of those present. After the first outburst of grief had in a measure subsided, the old minister, with trembling voice, addressed a prayer to the Throne of Grace for the afflicted father and bereft little ones, that in a measure calmed his sobbing audience, and the sad ceremony was brought to a close. As the procession moved through the deep cut to the old churchyard, the Captain was moved with emotions of gratitude to the kind neighbors that had rendered the moving of the procession possible, and at the open grave of his fair young bride, as his tears mingled with the earth that forever hid her from his view, Captain Knight registered a vow, that 'he would ever after, through life, render assistance in sickness and death.' How well he kept that vow, thousands in the Valley can attest, and many have wondered, that laying aside all business, he always volunteered his aid in the much needed afflicted hour. During the last years of his life, he imparted the secret to the writer, and as he has gone to meet the reward of the good deeds done here below, his death absolves the pledge of secrecy. It is a coincidence that, his funeral also occurring in February, (thirty-nine years after his wife,) the impassable road to the cemetery, rendered so by the deep snow, was shoveled out by a "bee" of his townsmen. His four boys, Francis M., Milton L., George H. and Charles Carroll, are in the west, and his only daughter, Louisa, married to Dr. DeWitt Bacon, son of Homer Bacon, went to Oneida, Ill., where she died a few years ago. Polly Mosher, who married Zabine Luce, died, a few years since, at the residence of her only daughter, Mrs. Cornelius J. Knickerbocker, of Utica. John Mosher, an officer of the Revolutionary War,...came to Paris with his brother, Josiah, in 1791; carried on a tannery with his son, Abijah, at an early day, on the site of the Rogers machine shop, at Willowvale, and also built the sawmill further up the stream, carried on for many years by his son, Abel. He died many years ago. Abel Mosher was born in Pepperell, Mass., Oct. 4, 1779, and at twelve years of age came to the Valley, in 1791, with his parents; arriving at manhood he married Sarah, daughter of Ephraim Warren, a Revolutionary soldier.... Abel Mosher carried on the sawmill built by his father, and for many years kept the tavern there, just south of the sawmill. He had three sons and three daughters. Warren, his eldest son, removed to Ohio many years ago, where, in a fit of melancholy, he died by his own hand; Chauncey L. was a promising young business man, and was the accomplished superintendent of Hollister's extensive factories at Clayville, and died January 9, 1850, aged 29. His widow survives, married to 'Squire Charles C. Wicks, of Paris Hill. Augustus has long been a resident of New York city, and for many years the courteous landlord of a popular Broadway hotel. Betsey, the eldest daughter, married Hon. C. S. Butler, and died March 29, 1836, aged 32. Mary A., born in 1810, married Alanson A. Butler, and died April 11, 1838, aged 28. Clarissa Mosher survives, the widow of the late David J. Millard, of Clayville, where she resides. Sarah Warren, wife of Abel Mosher, died July 15, 1825, aged 42, He married a second wife, (Widow Morehouse,) by whom he had one son, Francis, who survives, residing at New Haven, Ct. Abel Mosher was well and favorably known in the Valley, a prominent business man in the early days. Retiring from active business, he spent his declining years at Sauquoit and Clayville, and passed away Sept. 25, 1868, aged 89." - Ancestry.com
