Who was the actual father of Reverend Hugh Mosher of Providence, R.I.?

+6 votes

I am opening this G2G Question as a better place to discuss the parentage of Mosher-171 and Mosher-184.  Originally scheduled for a potential merge, they have been marked as rejected matches.  At least one reference indicates that they are father and son:  https://archive.org/stream/originhistoryofm00mosh#page/14/mode/1up

The first paragraph of Hugh Mosher-171 (which indicates that he is the son of Nicholas) is a paragraph titled HELP HELP HELP.  That along with old bulletin board messages creates a feeling of despair when users are attempting to add children to the profile.  

The first paragraph of Mosher-184 (which indicates that he is the son of Stephen) also is a paragraph titled HELP HELP HELP.  

I think that some discussion is warranted and if the reference that I cited is proven acceptable, then Ensign Hugh Mosher should be made the father of Reverend Hugh Mosher, replacing Nicholas Mosher as the father.

I would like to point you to this site!

 I know the Mosher family has been researched by a lot of people!  I thought there was a Mosher family Association but I couldn't find it when I looked for it!  

It would be great if we could get the correct information in one place!  Lots of resources about the family on the Internet!

The requested URL /cgi-bin/igm.cgi op=GET&db=lees_trees&id=I0252 was not found on this server.

Could you check the url that you posted above, again, please?

Seriously? This is a thing? I just traced my husbands line back to these guys and it clearly states that Hugh was Stephans son. Why is this a thing?? I was just looking online to see if any of them were on any of the boats and came across this posting.
There have been so many merges for this one profile (and another one that I don't think should occur) that there are too many profile managers.   Since it is an open profile, if you have done credible research, perhaps you feel confident enough to clean up that biography.  I don't think HELP HELP HELP is productive.  But, since there is a cry for help, maybe you can provide the necessary relief?

I'm not sure how to work this sitem but this is what I have from Ancestory.Com and this mergerges with a few other peoples line ups, hope this answers the original question :

Stephen Mosher (1572 - 1599)
10th great-grandfather of husband

    Hugh Mosher is my G9GFather. My family commissioned an extensive genealogical study which found Nicholas Moger (G10GFather) of Cucklington,Somersetshire is his father. Mother is Lydia Maxon.

    My G11GFather is John Moger 1546-1612 & married to Edith Crosse 1555-1619.

    I'm just now exploring our family and the study is extensive!

    Can you give us the source reference, or the name of the genealogist (firm?) so that changes may be made to the profile.  I don't change other people's profile, even if they are open, without references that may be checked by the profile manager and others.  Thanks for your response!
    I'll find the genealogist and source info and get back.
    Also, according to my research the confusion stems from 2 different Hugh Moshers.
