About George Moshier

He was a soldier in the war of 1812 and '15

He came to Rochester in 1821, and was an accomplished blacksmith and a Free Mason.

Preface: The earliest known history of the Moshier family is found in the Kocherthal Records, which are the records of the Palatines who fled from the ravages of the French in the valley of the Rhine in the late 17th to early 18th centuries. Most of them went down the Rhine into the Netherlands, and thence to England. A large number eventually settled in West Camp, Ulster County, and in Germantown, Columbia County, New York. The first of the Moshier family in America appears to have been Johan Jacob Mushier, and the earliest record of him is when in 27 July 1710 his daughter Catharina married Johan Haner, widower.
