From the 1883 History of Marion County:

J. A MOUSER, M. D., was born in Salt Rock Township, Marion County, Ohio, December 13, 1835, and is the son of Isaac and Ann Eliza /Strawbridge) Mouser. • The Doctor was reared to the life of a farmer. At the age of twenty, he commenced teachiug school, and in March, 1856, be- came a student at the Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware, Ohio, where he graduated in the classical course, June 26, 1862. He soon afterward commenced the study of medicine, with Dr. R. L. Swenev, of Marion, with whom he remained two years. He attended medical lectures at the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati two winters, graduating March 2, 1865, and was examined and accepted as Acting Assistant Surgeon of the United States Army, and sent to the post hospital at Camp Butler, Illinois. He was married, March 1, 1864, to Sarah E. Delong, a daughter of Dr. H. P. and Ann S. (Holmes) Delong. From this marriage there were eight children—May Delong, Ambrose Henry, Grant Earl, George, Maud, Lloyd, Howard and Roy Homer. At the close of the war, Dr. Mouser came to La Rue July 31, 1865, and commenced the practice of his profession in partnership with Dr. Delong, which continued until 1869; since then he has practiced alone. In politics, the Doctor was a Republican until 1872; since that time he has acted with the Prohibition party. He has ever been an earnest advocate of temperance, and has taken an active part toward the suppression of the traffic in intoxicating liquors within the vicinity of La Rue. The Doctor has served the citizens of La Rue Village as Councilman two terms, and as member of the Board of Education about ten years, of which he is now the President. He is a member of the F. & A. M., I. O. O. F. and the P. O. S. of A., and also a member of the Ohio State Medical Society, and one of the founders of the present Marion County Medical Society. He is very pleasantly situated in La Rue, but has recently made purchases of property at Abilene, Texas, with which place he was so favorably impressed that he has some idea of moving there with his family.
