You can view the headstones of Archie and Hannah online. They are at the Riverside Cemetery in Gouverneur. I don't see a Paul or Hugh listed so they may have moved. Archie d. 1938 and Hannah in 1964. The cemetery index and *many* other useful resources are at the county site under usgenweb. Start at www.usgenweb.org, click on 'state's pages' then follow the links to NY state then St. Lawrence county.
You may find more info at the social security death index at rootsweb.com. There are six Paul Moshers listed for NY including one for St. Lawrence county (1901-1968), last residence Norfolk who may be yours (how old was yours in 1930?). I didn't search for Hugh but if he lived beyond 1961, is currrently deceased and qualified for social security then he may show up. Search all states if you don't find him in NY state. Start at www.rootsweb.org, scroll down a bit and look to the left for 'social security death index'. If you find a name of interest, you can click 'order records' which leads to subsequent pages explaining what the cost might be.
If you establish a date of death (ex. from the ssdi) you can research newspapers on microfilm for an obituary. Go to your nearest public library and ask for the 'newspaper of record' for the town where a person died and ask about interlibrary loan of papers on microfilm.

Hope this helps -
