Nicholas Mosher was born in 1766 at Avondale, Newport, Nova Scotia. He was the tenth child of James and Lydia. Nicholas married Polly Greeno (born in 1769 in Falmouth, N.S.), daughter of Daniel, grantee at Falmouth, Nova Scotia. The Nicholas Mosher farm was located on the east of Newport Township line and the Township of Douglas, north by Kennetcook River, with a river running through the land emptying into the Kennetcook.
Nicholas built the first vessel in the area, about a quarter mile from the mouth of the Little River; the vessel carried plaster to Philadelphia, the master being Captain Barzillai Mosher, son of his brother Barzillai. In December 1796 Nicholas Mosher, builder, had completed building two bridges, one over the Cogmagun River and the other over the Kennetcook River. The inspectors for the two bridges were Benjamin DeWolf, Nathaniel Thomas and James B. Francklin who were appointed by the Lt-Governor. On inspection the builder, Nicholas Mosher, was asked to install some timbers in the abutments to the Cogmagun Bridge "when the season will permit". The inspectors found the Kennetcook Bridge "well and substantially built and finished in a good and workmanlike manner". The bridges were under the direction and management of Joshua Sanford, John Smith and John Chambers. Governor Wentworth issued a warrant to Nicholas Mosher on 14 Dec 1796 for 200 pounds for building the two bridges.
Nicholas died in 1832 in Mosherville, Nova Scotia. Polly died on 19 March 1827.
