In 1750, they migrated with the Daniel Boone family to the Yadkin River valley in North Carolina after stopping for awhile in the Shenandoah Valley.  Johann with his wife and eight children from Berks County, PA to North Carolina settling on land along Stinking Quarter Creek in Orange County (now Alamance County). The Moser family was part of the mass migration of German and Scots-Irish farmers who traveled south along the Great Wagon Road after 1735 as the supply of land grew short in Pennsylvania and other northern colonies. lookbackward.com

Tradition says that when Gov. Tryon took the oath of allegiance of those who participated in the battle of Alamance, Mr. [Frederick] Moser was of that number. His sons were not old enough to be in the battle, consequently the oath was not administered to them. When War broke out, the boys sided with the patriots, but the old man kept his oath. Someone reported to the authorities that he was aiding and abetting the American cause. Soldiers were sent to arrest him. When he saw them, he ran into his house and escaped on the back side into a thicket. The soldiers not knowing this, when they could not find him, fired the house to be sure of this death. After they left, he came from his hiding place and said that politically he was dead, and he assisted the American cause ever after.
