Today I added a page for the Early Settlers Cemetery ~ Herr Heinrich Moser Sr., Moser River, NS. To learn more about this cemetery and my visit there, and to see several pictures taken of it, visit its page.
There are only three headstones with inscriptions in the cemetery. I added one of those today with vital information.
Wm. J.: 1866 – 1948
