For those that are perhaps seeing these transcriptions for the first time, the transcriptions may give on first glance, the appearance of a great many typos, so I feel obligated to explain that the abundance of y, m, and d represent abbreviations for year, month and day. Although you will find most engravers follow similar patterns, it seems there are several different abbreviations used to represent these three time terms including: y, yr, yrs, yr's & years; m. mo, mos, mo's, and months; d. da, das, da's, and days and on rare occasions, h, hr, hrs, hr's, and hours. I tend not to use commas except to separate surname from given name, given name from date, except where found on actual inscription, same goes for the [.] (period). When you see the symbol [_] (underscore), I use it to represent missing or unreadable letters, or if a lot of letters are unreadable I may express it by several periods, such as Jos...h . Sometimes you will find raised letters such as "c" in surnames such as in McClain, or if the engraver added smaller letters that were left out and added later, when I encounter them, tend to express them, when possible, as found on the stone. Sometimes engravers will use the latin term Æ or æ, this is just a term that generally replaces the word "aged". One last comment, all actual text found engraved, will come first in bold text. All comments, observations, personal knowledge remarks added by submitter, concerning an individual, but not inscribed on stone, will then proceed in regular text. ~R.M.Sizelove~

The Mosher Family Cemetery is located off of County Road 18 at Dale. Turn on County Road 18 at Dale then go almost to the end (Roxbury). There is a road sign on the right stating E J Ross Lane - Windsor Twp. Road 43 and Mosier Cemetery - Windsor Twp. Road 1170. The name is misspelled on the sign. This cemetery is in the woods and a walk is required to get to it. There used to be a road that went right past it back in the late 1800's. It is on private property and if you would like more information about it please contact me. The source info of some dates and names came from a gentleman by the name of Everett Yarnell who made many trips to courthouses and poured over old newspaper articles at the library. The rest come from the stones themselves. The Mosher Family Cemetery was first known as the Goose Hill Cemetery. It was established in 1788. It became the Mosher Family Cemetery, 30 Jan., 1879. There are many unknown & unmarked graves in the cemetery. They are visible from the indentations in the ground but there are no markers of any kind visible. The stones have eroded and most of the remaining stone are illegible. Tripp Mosher, Sr. and Tripp Mosher, Jr. have been added to this list. The location of their graves are unknown and we are not sure if they are buried in the Mosher Cemetery.
