MOSHER BURIAL PLOT

Catalogued April 23, 1975 by H. A. Dieter and Gideon Pliner. Located one-fourth mile north of Junction Wis. 56 and Wis. 80. The plot lies on a raised portion of land bordering Wis. 80 on the east side of the highway. The burials are located about 30 feet from the west and south as the land corners at the section 33 line, Town of Rockbridge. The area is presently pasture land. This family plot was begun in about 1874 after the death of one Emmaly Mosher, daughter of Daniel D. and Maria Bristel Mosher. There are six reported burials, some recorded by Richland County and others by family reference only. Three remain unidentified as of this date. Certain records, statements and events concerning this family plot has aroused the writer's interest whose continued efforts have helped to substantiate it's existence. Early day facts began to unfold in 1856 when the various Mosher families began to buy land in sections 28-29-33, Town of Rockbridge. Abram Justice (Jet) Mosher, son of Daniel and Maria Mosher, married Eliz. Tadder, daughter of Hiram and Emeline Hancock Tadder. Carrie, daughter of A. J. & Eliz. married Thomas McCauley, whose one son Elwood, born 1 March 1885, died 1 May 1885. He was also an older brother of Mrs. Lee McNamer. She was born 31 March 1887 and is presently residing with her husband Lee, now 90, at the senior Citizens Home near Richland Center. The following data endorsed by Emma West and Mrs. Lee McNamer:
