Did John Mosher born 1744 in Pepperell, Massachusetts, USA and his wife Hannah Warren have a son named James?

+2 votes
I have been searching for the parents of James Mosher born  1780 in Pepperell, Massachusetts, USA.

I am wondering if John Mosher born 1744 in Pepperell, Massachusetts, USA and his wife Hannah Warren were James parents.

On John's Find A Grave memorial it says he had a son named James. Yes, I know Find A Grave can be inacurate.  On familysearch.org it does not have a son named James listed though it may just be missing information.

Does anyone know anything about John Mosher born 1744,  his wife Hannah Warren and if they had a son named James?

I checked the Oneida, NY, County Probate records (where John Mosher is said to have died in 1817), and found only a Chauncey Mosher, whose will mentions only a wife Nancy and daughter Mary Elizabeth.

If that is of any interest, it can be found here:

"New York Probate Records, 1629-1971," images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GYCF-8ZS?cc=1920234&wc=Q7PX-PT5%3A213303301%2C216960801 : 28 May 2014), Oneida > Wills 1848-1858 vol 9-11 > image 128 of 749; county courthouses, New York. 

If you want to continue to search the index, the names beginning with "Mo..." start here:

John (Jr) Mosher and Hannah Warren were married in 1770, and had a son born in 1770, who was not baptized and no first name was given. Pepperell Town Records, Births (subscription site.) Those town records do not have any record of a James Mosher born in 1780. The unnamed son of John and Hannah could have been a James, but the birth year is not the one you noted, and proof that he was a James would have to be found elsewhere.
