ISAAC L. MOSHER, Grand Rapids. Son of Jabez and Elizabeth Mosher. Was born at White Creek, Washington Co., N. Y., Jan. 24, 1819, and resided there until he was about sixteen years of age, when his father removed to Livingston Co., N. Y. Here he resided until the Fall of 1844, following farming, when he came to Sauk Co., Wis. Here he followed lumbering for four years, coming to Grand Rapids in the Fall of 1848, and entering into the employ of the mercantile firm of Mirer & Werner, as clerk for three years. At this time, they obtained their supplies and groceries at Galena and Freeport, a trip for a load of goods requiring some fourteen or fifteen days. The next three years he clerked for Kablin & Clinton, of St. Louis, who, in addition to their stock of groceries and provisions, brought in large stock of ready-made clothing, the first ever brought here. In the Winter of 1855-6, Mr. M. went into the mercantile business for himself, to which he added lumbering, in which business he remained until 1876. Merchants from this section first began getting goods at Milwaukee about the year 1856 or 1857. Mr. M. has filled various offices, among which are those of Justice of the Peace and County Judge. In 1876, he was elected Treasurer of Wood County, to which office he has been continuously re-elected since that time. Mr. M. was married, in 1853, to Miss Olive Maria Moore, of Grand Rapids. They have five children living Antonette, Eva, Morton, Carson and Milton.
