Biographical history

Mechanical Engineer, Draftsman, Patent Attorney
George Mosher was born in Newport Corner, Hants County, NS on August 13, 1842. He married Lucinda Weir in 1885 and had two children Ruth and Eugene.
He was a mechanical engineer, draftsman “all his life” and also a registered Patent Attorney. He often drew the inventions of his clients and then applied for patents both in the United States and Canada.

He built a new home in Truro in 1890 at 77 King Street which was Gothic Revival in style and he used the front facing tower as a draftsman’s shop.
He was a Presbyterian and is buried in the Robie Street Cemetery, Truro, NS.
