David Mosher son of Peter Mosher and Mary Boomhower
This info is for anyone researching David Martin Mosher and family- he was born Jan. 1 1845 possibly at Hungerford, perhaps at Kennebec, I am not sure. His death reg. says Hungerford. Parents were Peter Mosher born about 1812-1817 and his wife Mary Boomhower born 1825 at Stansbridge, Quebec. Peter and Mary lived at Kennebec in Frontenac County, Ontario. I have names of ten children for Peter and Mary and David is the eldest in that family in my file.
David married Sarah Ann Vankoughnet about 1869, she was born about 1841; I cannot find a marriage for them. Sarah Ann was the daughter of Ezekiel Whitney Vankoughnet and his wife Elizabeth whose surname I believe was Dibble. I have Ezekiel and Elizabeth up to 1861 at Storrington, Ontario. I have names of ten children now for Ezekiel and Elizabeth, Sarah just made number ten.
Sarah Ann was previous married to James Hetherington for whom I can find no info, and have no idea when or where he died. If the reason Sarah re-married was because she was a widow, then James would have died between 1864 and 1869, conception of his son James and the year before Sarah's first child was born in her second marriage, father David Mosher.
The three children that I know belong to James Hetherington and Sarah Ann Vankoughnet are:
Mary Elizabeth Hetherington born about 1861 married William Henry Blakely
Cynthia Ann Hetherington born about 1864 married Charles Killenbeck, son of William Killenbeck and Hannah Maud Slack, Cynthia was Charles' second wife
James Hetherington junior born about 1865, I have no other info for him
Children of Sarah Ann Vankoughnet widow of James Hetherington and her second husband David Mosher:
Eliza Jane Mosher born 1870 married Albert Lockwood from Camden East
Ezekiel Whitney Mosher born 1871 married Annie Turner in Rainy River, Ont. (same place as where David died in 1929)
Caroline A. Mosher born about 1876 married William E. Gracey
William Edward Mosher born about 1878, no further info
The last six of these children are all on the 1881 census with David and Sarah at Clarendon all under the surname MOSHER. Sarah's eldest daughter from her first marriage Mary Elizabeth Hetherington was already married prior to 1881.
