George’s daughter, Elizabeth LOY (1769-1807) who married Nicholas MOSER (1762-1821) is our ancestor. John’s son Henry is the founder of the LOY Potters with Solomon being its most famous member. Solomon LOY would be John L. MOSER’s second cousin. John L MOSER (1800-1845) being Nicholas and Elizabeth MOSER’S son.
