Did You Know?

The Bay of Islands region from Harrigan Cove to Ecum Secum was settled by "German Protestant" farmers who had relocated from Five Houses, Lunenburg (late 1800's Prussia) after discovering the land there was too rocky. The first settlers were brothers-in-law Heinrich Moser and Johan Urbanus Schmidt and their families. Today, the Moser River-Necum Teuch area is still home to Moser-Smith descendants of these original settlers. Photo above (by Diane Tibert) is of the First Settlers' Cemetery, Moser River with
inscription in German.
