NEEDS WORK: Some researchers have confused Johan Adam Moser with a Hans Adam Moser (Mosser) b 18 Feb 1684 d 23 Aug 1770 who may have immigrated into Lancaster Co (later Lebanon Co) PA on the Ship "Molley" in 1727 since he also had a wife Anna Maria.

Per Cameron, came from Alsace to America on 9/11/1728 on the ship "Goodwill" with an unknown number of children. PA records indicate John Adam Musser and his wife, Anna Maria (Last name unknown) lived in Bethel Township, now Lebanon County PA. According to the "History of the Counties of Lebanon and Dauphin" victims of the last indian murders on 10/13/1758 included Hans Adam and Jacob Musser. The two were most likely father and son, or brothers.
According to "the Copenhaver Family of Smyth County, Virginia" by Mildred and Robert Copenhaver, John Adam Musser was born 9/8/1684 and died 1/8/1771 and is buried at Trinity Reformed Cemetery in Millardsville PA. Cameron believes this to be the same John Adam Musser listed in "Pennsylvania German Marriages" by Donna R. Irish. She states at stone at the above mentioned Trinity reads "John Adam Musser, Feb 18, 1684 - Jan 23, 1770. This John Adam Musser's wife was named Catherine Ramer.
