"JOHN MUSSER, retired farmer; P.O. Hinckley Center (OH, Medina Co.). Mr. Musser was born in Trumbull Co., OH, Nov.9 1814. He is the son of David and Polly (Reed) Musser, who were natives of Pennsylvania and came to Trumbull Co., in 1813. In 1840, they removed to Norton, Summit Co.(OH), where they remained until their deaths. Mr. Musser's early life was passed in Trumbull Co., where he learned the carpenter and joiner's trade, which occupation he followed until about 30 years of age. Aug 12 1843, he was married to Esther F. Canfield; her father, William, was a native of Litchfield Co., Conn., and her mother, a native of West Hampton, Mass. They came to (Norton Twp.) Summit Co.(OH)in 1817, and lived there all of their lives, her father dying in 1852, and mother in 1867...." (from History of Medina Co., OH)
(This goes on, speaking of where else he lived and his children.)
He is found on the 1850 Census for Norton Twp., Summit Co., OH, as well as his father-in-law, William Canfield.
John's parents, David "Mossar" and Mary Ann "Polly" "Moser", are buried at Loyal Oak Cemetery in Norton, OH.

Does anyone have anything further on this Musser/Moser family ?
