The original typescript of Lathers family cemetery is bound in the Miscellaneous Compiled Records of the D.A.R., Volume 239, pages 78-79, available for your personal viewing in the genealogy room at the New York City Public Library. For further information about persons named, please visit or order a search from the Montgomery Department of History and Archives.

Lathers Cemetery was typed by Lori (Whitmer) Mosher. Lori is researching Moshers in the Town of Oppenheim, which is now part of our neighbor to the north, Fulton County. Lori tells us that her brick wall is Peter Mosher, last seen listed on the census in 1870. If you can help Lori out with area Moshers or have ideas about late 19th century Oppenheim sources, she'd love to hear from you.

"Peter Mosher was born about 1828 (I think) and he died about 1880. He was married to a Betsy Cross and they had Ida, Horatio, Nathan, Dolphina, and Etta Allen as children. I think there my be one more. I am pretty sure his parents are Solomon Jr. and Johanna. They are buried in Oppenheim. I can't seem to find any burial plot for Peter and I know that he was buried in Oppenheim and Betsey is buried in Stockbridge Madison Co. I found Ida buried in Salisbury Cemetery, Herkimer Co. I know the family line right up to Peter, just would like to go past him."
