    Notes:

    Baptized 29 October 1758 at Zion's Moselem Lutheran Church near Moselem Springs, Richmond Township, Berks County, PA; sponsors, Joh. Wolfgang and Anna Moehring, George Michael Durr then a weaver.

    Georg Dörr was a sponsor at the baptism of Johan Heinrich Moehring, son of Johann Wolfgang and Anna (Merckle) Moehring (b. 11 August 1779, baptized 12 September 1779) at St. Mary's Lutheran Church, Silver Run, MD, along with Elisabetha Biehl, both single.

    Joh. Georg and Dorothea Dörr were communicants at St. Mary's Lutheran Church, 8 June 1783. They were sponsors at the baptism of Johann Georg Biddle, son of Thomas and Eva Barbara (Merkle) Biddle (b. 27 August 1784, baptized 12 September 1784), at St. Mary's Lutheran Church, Silver Run, MD.

    The first Jefferson County record mentioning George Durr was an 1806 indenture, transferring land from Adam Shepherd and his wife Rachel (of Bullitt County, Kentucky) to George Duer of Jefferson County. Durr paid the Shepherds $600 (of “Kentucky currency”) for the land, which included 300 acres in Jefferson County, along Pope Lick Creek, a branch of Floyd's Fork (1806 Indenture, Jefferson County Deed Book #7, pp. 509-510).

    It is unclear when the Durrs first came to Jefferson County. The 1806 indenture is the first mention, but the family first appears in church records in 1824. Census records mention them for the first time in 1840; tax lists include no Durrs in 1806-1810. John and Doritha Durr appear in 1827, and two Georges and Michael appear in 1828.

    In 1827, there were several documents dealing with the death of George John (or John George) Durr. It was said that the administration of the estate of George John Durr was granted in one place (where the writing was barely legible), while later it says that the inventory and appraisement of John George Durr was returned. Later it says that Jacob Reel, Jr., Philip Swan, James Pomeroy, Hugh Bonn, and Warnick (?) Lynn were “ordered [... to] examine and settle the accounts of George Derr administrator of John G. Durr deceased and make report to the Court.

    There are many variations in the spelling of the name Durr in the records. It has been spelled Durr, Duer, Derr, and Darr. The order and names of the Durr children is not totally clear (except in those cases where a birth year is given.)

    1836, 2 March, Jefferson County, Kentucky, Deed Book 50, p. 158 Indenture between Henry Friedley and Catherine his wife, John Boyers and Elizabeth his wife, Frederick Mosier and Dorthea his wife, Jacob Friedley and Winney his wife, William M.

    Notes:

    the story of Frederick Moser Posted 28 jul 2010 by meebeeshannon Georg Fredrich Moser was the 4th great-grandfather of Florence Mosier and one of seven children of Johann Martin Moser and Margaretta Schwembauer. Frederick, as he was known, was born on March 3, 1722 in Breitenau, Middle Franken (now Bavaria), Germany.

    At the age of 6, he emigrated to Pennsylvania with his parents, settling in the Perkiomen Valley at New Goshenhoppen, in Philadelphia County (now Montgomery County). At the age of 27, Frederick Moser received a warrant for 100 acres of land in Bucks (later Northampton, now Lehigh) County which was surveyed on March 30, 1749. On April 23, 1750, Frederick married Maria Barbara Lieser1 at New Hanover Lutheran Church. Barbara was the daughter of Benedict Lieser and Barbara Isch. She was born around 1731 in the Alsace region of Switzerland; some researchers show the date of her christening as February 4, 1731.

    Barbara immigrated to America with her family aboard the ship Robert & Alice of Dublin under the command of Captain Walter Goodman and arrived in Philadelphia on September 3, 1739. On the ship's passenger list, the family's place of origin is listed as Burbach, Alsace-Lorraine. All family members are named on the passenger list, and Barbara is listed as being seven years old. The Lieser family settled in a section of Philadelphia County that later became Hereford Township, Berks County.

    Frederick and Barbara had fourteen children, eight of whom were born in Bucks, Northampton or Berks County, Pennsylvania: Jacob (abt. 1751), Katherine "Caty" (abt. 1752), Michael (abt. 1754), Abraham (1756), John Philip (1758), George (1760), Maria Barbary (1760), and Nicholas (1762). George died during infancy. In 1759, Frederick was the tax collector for Greenwich Township, Berks County. In 1762, he migrated with his wife and children from Pennsylvania. It is probable that the Moser family traveled south by Conestoga wagon along the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road through the Shendanoah Valley of Maryland and Virginia, crossing the Blue Ridge Mountains somewhere in Virginia and on down into the Piedmont region of North Carolina.

    The family settled on land in the area of Stinking Quarter Creek2 in Orange County (now Alamance County), where Frederick purchased 225 acres on May 23, 1763. The Moser family is mentioned among the early settlers of the area in the following excerpt from Centennial History of Alamance County 1849-1949 by Walter Whitaker [Charlotte NC: Dowd Press, Inc; pg 14-15]: Three distinct groups led the movement and established colonies in the area which became Alamance County. To the Cane Creek section, near the present village of Snow Camp, came a group of Pennsylvania Quakers; east and north of the Haw River settled Scotch-Irish Presbyterians; and along the western boundary of the Alamance Creek a large number of Lutheran and Reformed settlers found new homes. Most of them were agriculturists, and few villages were built.

    Along the Alamance were the Albrights, Holts, Shoffners, Mosers, Isleys, Kimes, Staleys, Halls, Trollingers, Whitsetts, Hornadays, Reitzels, and other Germanic folk. Frederick and Barbara had six more children after arriving in North Carolina: Mary Ann (abt. 1764), John (abt. 1766), Elizabeth "Lizzy" (1768), Frederick Jr. (1771), Mary Magdalene (abt. 1773), and Evelyn "Eva" (abt. 1775). Frederick Moser is credited with Malachi Isley as being a founder of St. Paul Lutheran Church in 1763 or 1773. Frederick Moser was among the farmers who were required by Governor Tryon to swear an oath of allegiance to the British crown following the Battle of Alamance on May 16, 1771, ending the War of the Regulation. Frederick's sons were not old enough to be in the battle, consequently the oath was not administered to them. When the American Revolution broke out, the boys sided with the patriots, but Frederick kept his oath. Someone reported to the authorities that he was aiding and abetting the American cause. Soldiers were sent to arrest him. When he saw them, he ran into his house and escaped out the back side into a thicket. The soldiers not knowing this, when they could not find him, fired the house to be sure of this death. After they left, he came from his hiding place, said that politically he was dead, and assisted the American cause thereafter.3

    In 1780, Frederick's property was valued at 690 pounds and included 240 acres, four hourses and ten cows. Frederick made his will on April 17, 1796, leaving his property to his wife and children: Of sound mind & memory, advanced in years and knowing that by reason of my age I cannot live long, I Frederic Mosier sen. of Orange County in North Carolina do make this my last will & testament. I devise, will & bequeath to my son's John Mosier, and Frederic Mosier, their heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns forever all my lands and tenements subject to & charged with the payment of the sums following at or before the times limited & expressed hereinafter, to the persons herein-after to be mentioned, that is to say to each of my sons Jacob, Michael, Abraham, Phillip and Nicholas, severally, thirty five silver dollars making in the whole one hundred seventy five dollars which when paid to my sons as aforesaid shall be a discharge in full of their several legacies, to each of my daughters Caty Kimbro, Barbary Huffman, Mary Kek, Lizy Sharp, Eve Sharp, Magdelane Buther, severally, twelve and a half silver dollars, making altogether seventy five silver dollars in full of the legacies to my daughters. The first payment shall be made to my son Jacob in four years after my death, the second to my daughter Caty in five years, the third to my son Abraham in six years, the fourth to Barbary in seven years, the fifth to Michael in eight years, the sixth to Mary in nine years, the seventh to Phillip in ten years, the eighth to Lizy in eleven years, the eighth to Nicholas in twelve years, the tenth to Eve in thirteen years, the eleventh to Magdalane in fourteen years after my death, which sums on one hundred seventy five dollars and seventy five dollars when paid to my sons and daughters severally to my sons thirty five dollars, and severally to my daughters twelve and a half dollars at or before the time & periods after my death as expressed, shall discharge to my sons John & Frederic of any demises or legacies due in consequence of the land & tenement hereby given to them. It is my will & desire that my personal estate may be sold in the customary manner, & that so much of the money as may be necessary for the discharge of my just debts shall be appropriated to the purpose & the residue shall be divided share & share alike among all my sons & daughters, or their representatives, but if my wife Barbary survives me, she shall retain and keep possession of so much of my personal chattel as she may think necessary for her support & maintenance, during her natural life, to be disposed of after her death & paid over to my sons & daughters as above directed. My wife Barbary shall during her natural life occupy & posses so much of my land & tenement & such as she would have been entitled to in & as if I died intestate. I constitute & appoint my son Phillip and my son-in-law Peter Sharp executors of this my last will and testament. Witness my had this twelth day of April seventeen hundred ninety six. Witness present R Cochran Frederick Mosier Phillip Mosier qualified as Exr. Barbara died in 1796.

    On February 21, 1800, Frederick gave his 225 acre farm to his youngest son, Frederick Jr. He died shortly afterwards, and his estate was probated in May 1800. Barbara's surname has also been seen as Luser, Loscher, Loeser, Leeser and Lesser. It was recorded on her marriage record as "Luser." The name is shown as "Lieser" on the passenger list of the Robert & Alice, 1739. Benedict "Leeser" is recorded in the 1739 census for Philadelphia County. 2Stinking Quarter Creek is a lengthy tributary of the Alamance Creek of the Haw River, running westerly across what is now central Alamance County and into Guilford County. The western reaches of the creek were in Guilford County when it was created in 1770, and the eastern part fell into Alamance County at its creation in 1849. The Alamance Creek and Stinking Quarter Creek area of old Orange County, near the present town of Burlington, was settled almost exclusively by German Lutheran and Reformed families beginning in the 1750's. 3Source: Rev.

    Notes:

    the story of Frederick Moser Posted 28 jul 2010 by meebeeshannon Georg Fredrich Moser was the 4th great-grandfather of Florence Mosier and one of seven children of Johann Martin Moser and Margaretta Schwembauer. Frederick, as he was known, was born on March 3, 1722 in Breitenau, Middle Franken (now Bavaria), Germany. At the age of 6, he emigrated to Pennsylvania with his parents, settling in the Perkiomen Valley at New Goshenhoppen, in Philadelphia County (now Montgomery County). At the age of 27, Frederick Moser received a warrant for 100 acres of land in Bucks (later Northampton, now Lehigh) County which was surveyed on March 30, 1749. On April 23, 1750, Frederick married Maria Barbara Lieser1 at New Hanover Lutheran Church. Barbara was the daughter of Benedict Lieser and Barbara Isch. She was born around 1731 in the Alsace region of Switzerland; some researchers show the date of her christening as February 4, 1731. Barbara immigrated to America with her family aboard the ship Robert & Alice of Dublin under the command of Captain Walter Goodman and arrived in Philadelphia on September 3, 1739. On the ship's passenger list, the family's place of origin is listed as Burbach, Alsace-Lorraine. All family members are named on the passenger list, and Barbara is listed as being seven years old. The Lieser family settled in a section of Philadelphia County that later became Hereford Township, Berks County. Frederick and Barbara had fourteen children, eight of whom were born in Bucks, Northampton or Berks County, Pennsylvania: Jacob (abt. 1751), Katherine "Caty" (abt. 1752), Michael (abt. 1754), Abraham (1756), John Philip (1758), George (1760), Maria Barbary (1760), and Nicholas (1762). George died during infancy. In 1759, Frederick was the tax collector for Greenwich Township, Berks County. In 1762, he migrated with his wife and children from Pennsylvania. It is probable that the Moser family traveled south by Conestoga wagon along the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road through the Shendanoah Valley of Maryland and Virginia, crossing the Blue Ridge Mountains somewhere in Virginia and on down into the Piedmont region of North Carolina. The family settled on land in the area of Stinking Quarter Creek2 in Orange County (now Alamance County), where Frederick purchased 225 acres on May 23, 1763. The Moser family is mentioned among the early settlers of the area in the following excerpt from Centennial History of Alamance County 1849-1949 by Walter Whitaker [Charlotte NC: Dowd Press, Inc; pg 14-15]: Three distinct groups led the movement and established colonies in the area which became Alamance County. To the Cane Creek section, near the present village of Snow Camp, came a group of Pennsylvania Quakers; east and north of the Haw River settled Scotch-Irish Presbyterians; and along the western boundary of the Alamance Creek a large number of Lutheran and Reformed settlers found new homes. Most of them were agriculturists, and few villages were built. Along the Alamance were the Albrights, Holts, Shoffners, Mosers, Isleys, Kimes, Staleys, Halls, Trollingers, Whitsetts, Hornadays, Reitzels, and other Germanic folk. Frederick and Barbara had six more children after arriving in North Carolina: Mary Ann (abt. 1764), John (abt. 1766), Elizabeth "Lizzy" (1768), Frederick Jr. (1771), Mary Magdalene (abt. 1773), and Evelyn "Eva" (abt. 1775). Frederick Moser is credited with Malachi Isley as being a founder of St. Paul Lutheran Church in 1763 or 1773. Frederick Moser was among the farmers who were required by Governor Tryon to swear an oath of allegiance to the British crown following the Battle of Alamance on May 16, 1771, ending the War of the Regulation. Frederick's sons were not old enough to be in the battle, consequently the oath was not administered to them. When the American Revolution broke out, the boys sided with the patriots, but Frederick kept his oath. Someone reported to the authorities that he was aiding and abetting the American cause. Soldiers were sent to arrest him. When he saw them, he ran into his house and escaped out the back side into a thicket. The soldiers not knowing this, when they could not find him, fired the house to be sure of this death. After they left, he came from his hiding place, said that politically he was dead, and assisted the American cause thereafter.3 In 1780, Frederick's property was valued at 690 pounds and included 240 acres, four hourses and ten cows. Frederick made his will on April 17, 1796, leaving his property to his wife and children: Of sound mind & memory, advanced in years and knowing that by reason of my age I cannot live long, I Frederic Mosier sen. of Orange County in North Carolina do make this my last will & testament. I devise, will & bequeath to my son's John Mosier, and Frederic Mosier, their heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns forever all my lands and tenements subject to & charged with the payment of the sums following at or before the times limited & expressed hereinafter, to the persons herein-after to be mentioned, that is to say to each of my sons Jacob, Michael, Abraham, Phillip and Nicholas, severally, thirty five silver dollars making in the whole one hundred seventy five dollars which when paid to my sons as aforesaid shall be a discharge in full of their several legacies, to each of my daughters Caty Kimbro, Barbary Huffman, Mary Kek, Lizy Sharp, Eve Sharp, Magdelane Buther, severally, twelve and a half silver dollars, making altogether seventy five silver dollars in full of the legacies to my daughters. The first payment shall be made to my son Jacob in four years after my death, the second to my daughter Caty in five years, the third to my son Abraham in six years, the fourth to Barbary in seven years, the fifth to Michael in eight years, the sixth to Mary in nine years, the seventh to Phillip in ten years, the eighth to Lizy in eleven years, the eighth to Nicholas in twelve years, the tenth to Eve in thirteen years, the eleventh to Magdalane in fourteen years after my death, which sums on one hundred seventy five dollars and seventy five dollars when paid to my sons and daughters severally to my sons thirty five dollars, and severally to my daughters twelve and a half dollars at or before the time & periods after my death as expressed, shall discharge to my sons John & Frederic of any demises or legacies due in consequence of the land & tenement hereby given to them. It is my will & desire that my personal estate may be sold in the customary manner, & that so much of the money as may be necessary for the discharge of my just debts shall be appropriated to the purpose & the residue shall be divided share & share alike among all my sons & daughters, or their representatives, but if my wife Barbary survives me, she shall retain and keep possession of so much of my personal chattel as she may think necessary for her support & maintenance, during her natural life, to be disposed of after her death & paid over to my sons & daughters as above directed. My wife Barbary shall during her natural life occupy & posses so much of my land & tenement & such as she would have been entitled to in & as if I died intestate. I constitute & appoint my son Phillip and my son-in-law Peter Sharp executors of this my last will and testament. Witness my had this twelth day of April seventeen hundred ninety six. Witness present R Cochran Frederick Mosier Phillip Mosier qualified as Exr. Barbara died in 1796. On February 21, 1800, Frederick gave his 225 acre farm to his youngest son, Frederick Jr. He died shortly afterwards, and his estate was probated in May 1800. 1Barbara's surname has also been seen as Luser, Loscher, Loeser, Leeser and Lesser. It was recorded on her marriage record as "Luser." The name is shown as "Lieser" on the passenger list of the Robert & Alice, 1739. Benedict "Leeser" is recorded in the 1739 census for Philadelphia County. 2Stinking Quarter Creek is a lengthy tributary of the Alamance Creek of the Haw River, running westerly across what is now central Alamance County and into Guilford County. The western reaches of the creek were in Guilford County when it was created in 1770, and the eastern part fell into Alamance County at its creation in 1849. The Alamance Creek and Stinking Quarter Creek area of old Orange County, near the present town of Burlington, was settled almost exclusively by German Lutheran and Reformed families beginning in the 1750's. 3Source: Rev.
