The following transcription is from a 750 page book titled "Genealogical and Biographical Record of North-Eastern Kansas, dated 1900. These have been diligently transcribed and generously contributed by Penny R. Harrell, please give her a very big Thank You for her hard work!

Frederick S. Moser, a prosperous farmer and fruit grower residing near Troy, Kansas, was born on a farm in Knox county, Tenn., June 13, 1839. Mr. Moser is of German descent, his parents, John and Susannah Stevens, both having been born in Germany. They were brought to the United States in childhood, where they grew up and married. For many years after their marriage they lived in Knox county, Tenn., and from there they moved, in 1850, to Buchanan county, Mo., where John Moser was engaged in farming up to the time of his death, which occurred in 1853.

In 1856 the widowed mother with her family came to Kansas and settled on a frontier farm in Doniphan county. Afterward they pre-empted 160 acres of land in section 6, Center township, which was the family home until the Rebellion, when he enlisted; that broke up the home. The wife and mother went back to Missouri and stayed until the war closed and then they returned home. The mother's death occurred in 1869. Frederick S. accompanied the family from Tennessee to Missouri and thence to Kansas, as above stated. His education was received chiefly in the common schools of Buchanan county.

He was in the prime of early manhood when the war came on, with a family depending upon him, and at first it seemed almost out of the question for him to leave his new home, but, as the struggle continued and fresh forces were needed at the front, his patriotism asserted itself above everything else and his name was placed on the volunteer list. That was in 1862. He enlisted in Company C, Thirteenth Kansas Volunteer Infantry, under Captain Hugh Robinson and Colonel Bowen. He was ordered to the frontier and stationed for a time in Indian Territory, Arkansas and the southern part of Missouri. At Van Buren, Arkansas, and also Fort Smith and Little Rock he took part in several minor engagements and in March, 1865, went with his regiment to Little Rock, Arkansas.

He was honorably discharged in July, 1865, at the latter place and at once returned to his home in Doniphan county, where he resumed farming and stock raising and has since devoted his energies to agricultural pursuits. Mr. Moser purchased his present farm of 160 acres in section 30, Center township, in 1867, and added the rest of his 330 acres as he became able, and through his earnest, well directed efforts it has been brought up to its present high state of cultivation and improvement.

His fine apple orchard, comprising no less than 1500 trees, is of his own planting and from it he realizes handsomely. This farm is beautifully situated amid the hills, one mile south of the Missouri River, and at the time Mr. Moser selected it he located near by an extensive range for his stock. The enactment of the herd law, however, which followed several years afterward, materially restricted the stock range. The primitive home which our subject occupied here was a log house, 12 x 14 feet in dimensions, covered with clapboards and furnished in pioneer style.

This gave place, in 1876, to a two story frame house, the present residence. Mr. Moser has also built substantial barns and out buildings and keeps pace with the times in the way of machinery and everything necessary to successfully carry on farming operations. He formerly carried on the stock business extensively, making a specialty of cattle, hogs and horses.

October 9, 1859, Mr. Moser married Miss Mary Dittemore, of Buchanan county, Missouri, a daughter of Henry Dittemore, Esq. Her parents had removed from Indiana to Missouri at an early day and settled in Buchanan county, where she was born. She was educated near St. Joseph. This union has been blessed in the birth of twelve children, three of whom died in infancy. Those living are: William H.; Anna L., the wife of Thomas Smith; Viola Bell; John Franklin; Alvey Curtis; Josie E., the wife of James Triplett; Lucy C., the wife of Charles Triplett; and Frederick S., Jr. and Susan E., who are still at home.

Mr. and Mrs. Moser are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, at Troy, of which he is a liberal supporter and for a number of years has been a trustee. He is politically a Democrat of the old Jefferson style and is, fraternally, identified with the G. A. R., Kennedy Post, No. 292, and the Masonic fraternity, Lodge No. 55, at Troy. For the past twenty-five years he has been a member of the school board.
