From Floyds -
" The Moser family now well known in the northern portion of Northumberland county is descended from Peter Moser, a native of Berks county, Pa., who in 1838 came to Derry township, then in Northumberland county, but now included in Montour county. He had considerable land and was a lifelong farmer, being succeeded on his home place by his son-in-law, Gideon Dietrich. He was an early live stock dealer, and was a prominent and successful man, being able to give a farm to each of his nine children. He is buried at Washingtonville Church, which he helped to build, being one of the foremost members of the Lutheran congregation there; he served many years in the church council. His children were as follows:
Mrs. Samuel Shirey,
Sallie (wife of Samuel Snyder),
Susan (wife of Gideon Dietrich) and
Margaret (married Philip Boyer)."
