From the 1883 History of Marion County.

ISAAC MOUSER, deceased, came to Marion County as early as 1834,and bought 240 acres of wild land near Scott Town; here he lived until 1841, when he moved upon a farm of eighty acres one and a half miles east of Marion. About eight years later, he sold the 240 acres near Scott Town
and bought of Gen. Rowe the Histler farm of 320 acres joining the eighty acres east of Marion. Here he erected a fine residence and other buildings and lived there until the spring of 1864, when he was killed by a train of cars, on what is now the N. Y., P. & O. Railroad. He left a widow and six children. His son. George Ambrose Mouser, enlisted in the spring of 1861 in the second military company raised in Marion County, to serve as a Federal soldier in the war of the rebellion, and died in October of the same year of typhoid fever, at Cumberland, Md. He was a talented young man, and considered a natural orator. He was popular in his regiment, and would no doubt have made a brilliant record had it not been for his untimely end. Another son, Homer S. , was also out in the 100- day service. Isaac Mouser was married to Ann Eliza Strawbridge, a daughter of Justus Strawbridge, who came from England when a boy and settled in what was Columbia County, near Harrisburg, Penn. Justus Strawbridge married Ann Maus, a daughter of a wealthy German family who traced their ancestry to the nobility of Germany. After Isaac Mouser's death, his widow moved to Shelbyville. 111. , where she died in March, 1875; her remains were brought back and buried in the Marion Cemetery. The children of Isaac Mouser and his wife, Ann Eliza (Strawbridge) Mouser, are as follows: J. A. Mouser, a practicing physician at La Rue, Marion County, Ohio; Homer S., a lawyer at Shelbyville. 111.; Abram C, a lawyer in Sullivan, 111. ; IsaacJ., a lawyer in Huron, Dakota. Of the daughters, Mary J. married Daniel Jacoby and resides in Abilene, Kan.; and Emily H. married Rev. George W. Burns, who now owns a farm near Bloomington, 111., and preaches in the vicinity. All the boys except Isaac J. are classical graduates of the Ohio Wesleyan University and Mary J. is a graduate of the Ohio Wesleyan
Female College of Delaware, Ohio.
