William MOSELEY Capt.

[moseley1.ged]

William, mariner was of age by 4 Jan 1692/3 (Pr. Anne Deed Bk 1:30-31):
mentioning that their land was part of 12 Oct 1641, 640 ac land patent in
Linhaven, Princess Anne Co. by their grandfather, John Gookin. It explains how
his daughter, Mary #701 married first their father Capt Wm Moseley, but now
their stepfather was Lt Col Anthony Lawson.  on 4 Mar 1695/6 his cousin Wm was
called "Wm Moseley Sr, son of Arthur" in Pr Anne DB 1:117, and likewise his
DB1:225 will Jul 1699 he calls himself "Wm Moseley Jr son of Capt Wm dec'd".
Pr. Anne Co DB 2: 79 Aug 1711 calls him "son and heir of Capt Wm Moseley decd".
In DB1: 225 will he names his children for the first time in this order:
first Mary, then Wm, then Richard, and finally Elizabeth. So I compiled them
in that order. In 1691 he gave Mary land in Norfolk Co VA DB 5: 144, (p.299
Blankenship book).
Va Patent book 8: 64 of 21 Apr 1690 says Wm Moseley Jr got patent of Richard
Poole's adj. Geo Poole etc by virtue of having married Poole's sole heiress.
SOBERING Essex Co. Moseleys: p.262 of Thos. B. Moseley Vol 2 says in 1678
Richard Poole was involved in document saying "427 acres which I lately
purchased from Capt. Wm Moseley who had moved from Lower Norfolk to Old
Rappahannock County."
 Children: The will says Mary was born to 1st wife Blandina, and it gives
mother's effects to Richard strongly hints he also from Blandina as 2nd wife
was alive and using her effects. Also D Bk 2: 184-6, Dec 1713 says Blandina
bore 2 sons and 1 dtr and states that Wm was older than Richard.
His widow Mary, (not their daughter Mary) married Adam Thorowgood. Pr. Anne

an asserted marriage of dtr Mary to Benj Moseley. Mary is not even named on p.

Blandina POOLE

[moseley1.ged]

Father: Richard (son_of_Henry?) POOLE b: ABT 1625 in ,,,of VA
Mother: Mary (Mrs._Workman) WARD b: ABT 1635 in ,,VA probably

)Now Virgina Beach)

Her father's actual will written 1674 in lower norfolk E: 167, but Blandina's provision rehashed much later in Princ. Anne D.Bk.1:225 of 1699, which also says Dtr Mary was to get both a big and a little trunk (maybe a chest) that were her Mother Blandina's. Blankenship's p.299  cites Princess Anne Deed Bk 02:185 states that Blandina #1264 had one daughter and two sons. Blandina daughter of Richard Poole from Princess Anne Deed Bk 01:225 and Princess Anne Deed Bk 02:025. She was long dead by DB 1:225 in 1699 because the youngest daughter, Elizabeth Moseley had already been born to the next
wife. However if we had a document stating she died "before 1694", we no longer can relocate such a document.

[Va] 1637-1710, (pub by Colonial Dames in State of Va, 1914) on LDS film 0547257. (original wills largely unreadable on the microfilm so this abstract used): will of Richd Poole leaves his land, after his wife's decease, to dtr Blandina Poole and her legal heirs.  Less obvious are the provisions for son George, dtr Sarah Corbett and her children Richard and Mary Corbett.
VA PATENT bk 1: 444 of 1637 by a Henry Pool in Lower new Norfolk Co.  Va Pat bk 3: 150 of 1652 renewed 5: 337(341) of 1662, both by Richard Poole.  Va Pat 8: 64 and 72 of 1690, and 8: 160, 178 of 1691 speak of Pooles adj Wm Mosely and p. 64 even says Wm Moseley Jr married sole heiress of Richard Poole.


Richard MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

He was born bef 1693 because of his land deeds 1712-3,e.g. Prin Anne DB 2:
184-5. Norfolk Deed Bk 10:306 8 june 1714 from Blandina, executrix of Joseph
Moseley late of Norfolk Co. to mariner Richard Moseley of Princess Anne Co.:
land at Lamberts Point, which land apparently same as land Arthur2Wm1 owned
from Norfolk Deed Bk. 05:123 at that time Jan 1689/90 still in Lower Norfolk
Co Lambert Pat Land: Va pat 7:230 in 1682 by Lawson refers back to Col Thos
Lambert Ambiguously Princess Anne Co. Va court minute book 4: 35 mentions the
estate of Capt Richard Moseley in 1729, but then Pr. Anne Deed Bk 5:59
mentions a Richard Moseley alive in Mar 1735/6 who is this one or apparently
closeley related. See Norfolk Co.records for further details, as those are
last (Pr. Anne) Richard deeds. Except for apparently alive in Pr Anne D.Bk 4:
269 about Feb 1729/30.
 Princess Anne Deed Bk 04: 005, 7 Oct 1724 Richard #4170 deed to Thos Wiles:
land that Richard bought from Blandina #132 in above deed Norfolk Deed Bk
10:306, 3 Jun 1714, or in Pr. Anne DB 2: 212 of 7 Jun 1714. Blandina's husband
got it from #4043 Tully Emperour in a deed dated 1704 or 1710 (hard to read).
Blandina (Blake) Moseley was not mentioned in her father's 1726 will, she
might have been dead or possibly she was omitted because she already was a
large landowner, as the Blandina, witness, in Princess Anne Deed Bk. 05:059 of
1735/6 may be the same widow, from her association with Richard in that deed.
 Princess Anne Deed Bk 05: 165, 15 Mar 1735/6 - 5 Jan 1736/7 Wm. Hancock
will: wife Mary (pregnant) the executor, daughter Susannah, my cousin Arthur
Moseley, Richard, William + Blandinah Moseley, godson Henry? Griffin,
witnesses James Nimmo, Henry Holmes. Richard apparently a bachelor at this
date.
LDS microfilm #0001043 wrongly asserts Richard's will was in 1712. there was
a 1712 deed that sounded like a will, but was part of a provision in his dad's
will that he deed over land to his brother in return for his brother's land.
The above 1724 deed in Priness Anne makes it pretty clear this Richard is
alive.

Benjamin C. MOSELEY artilleryOfficer

[moseley1.ged]

Benjamin6wm5arthur4-3-2wm1 Moseley was frequently confused with Benjamin6--
arthur5-4-3-2Wm1 until articles by John Hale Stutesman in Virginia Genealogist
vol.29, p.243-251 1985 and his book on Watkins Family; Also VA genealogist vol
33 p.65-70 1989; Gen. Abstracts of Rev War Pension Files Abstracted by Virgil
D. White (Waynesboro, Tenn: Natl Hist Pub Co, 1992), page 2436.    Benjamin
served in the Revolution as a 1st. Lt., First Battalion of Artillery in VA
Cont. Line from 2 May 1779 to 4 Mar.1783. [His father William served as a
Major]. He received a grant of land in Ohio for his Rev. War service.  Ref:
U.S. Depart. of the Interior, Bureau of Pensions Widows' File, No. 5387;
[?Tyler's? or Wm&Mary?] Quarterly XX p. 207.
WM and Mary Qtrly 26: 276 says somewhat nonsensically "isaac   wm mosley, who
married logwood   matthew moseley..[and mary marg lucy as we have them]". SO we
did not add any kids, because it says more or less what we already had.
From "Abstracts of Rev. War Pension Files", Virgil White:
    Benjamin Moseley, Mary wife, W5387, BLW #2436-300, Continental Line
Virginia, soldier received 2666-2/3 acres of BL from the state of Virginia on

signed by a Peter Branch, soldier died 26 Jul 1799 in Buckingham County,
Virginia and his widow applied there 11 Feb 1839 aged 74, children shown were:
William Moseley; Mary who married Rolfe Eldridge;  Lucy who married Dr. James
Austin and died prior to 1849: Children: Lucy Ann Austin who married Austin
Morgan; Thomas A. Austin; Mary or Maria Agness Austin;  James Austin.
Margaret who married James Jones and died prior to 1849: Children: Ann Jones
who married John May; Amanda Jones; Lucy Jones; Virginia Jones; James Jones
William W. Jones; Margaret Jones;  Matthew Moseley who died without issue.
DAR #223008
Married 25 Dec 1783 Chesterfield County, VA to Mary Branch (1764-1848) Bond
3rd December. They settled on the Slate River near Buckingham Court House
where he died.  Benjamin Moseley is buried at Rolfeton in the family cemetery.
From "The Courthouse Burned..." by Pennington and Scott, page 33:
    "Rolfeton is important in the homes of Buckingham because of its
connection to the political life of the county.  It is not known when the
house was built but Lt. Benjamin Moseley was buried in the family cemetery in
1799.  His daughter, Mary, married Rolfe Eldridge, Jr. in 1808 and they made
this farm their home.  Mr. Eldridge, Jr. was Clerk of the Court from 1806
until 1858, a total of 52 years.
    The house was built on a hill but in times of flooding, water some times
surrounded the house.  In the middle of the low grounds there is a round
formation which natives called "The Indian Mound."  The yard was quite
beautiful and Mr. Eldridge led his riding horse up the stile and over the
fence to graze on the lawn.
    Rolfeton is of frame construction with two stories and a cellar. The
construction is sturdy with large windows.  The house has twelve closets which
was unusual for that time. The downstairs rooms have pine wainscoting and in
some places the planks measure twenty six inches in width.  All nails are shop
made.  The three chimneys are quite large.
    The Eldridge family owned Rolfeton for five generations but in 1948 it
was sold. Today it is owned by Carl M. Henshaw of Richmond, Virginia."


John MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

Married Rhoda Watkins (c 1768 -  ), 2nd cousin; she was the daughter of
Edward Watkins. DAR #223008. Moved to Tennessee and settled on the Duck River.
His mothers will of 1820: "My son John Moseley should have $600. In case that
he should be dead at the time of my death (the) sum shall be equally divided
between his two daughters Elizabeth and Lydia. (Powhatan Co. VA Will Book 6,
pp.369-370) In 1804, "John Moseley & Rhoda his wife" disposed of an
inheritance from her mother.
THAT 1820 WILL PROBATE was ANNOUNCED IN 20 FEB 1823 RICHMOND ENQUIRER;
 This John is confused with John son of his father's wm's brother John. so use
extreme care about identities! Some John Moseley married 7 Jan 1792 Nancy Folks
evidently Chesterfield Co. in Register of Marriages Bristol Parish recorded on
p. 313 of "Cumberland Parish.... history, Lunenburg Co by Landon C. Bell 1930;
 Benjamin Moseley R-36510 was frequently confused with Benjamin Moseley
R-35821 until the articles by John Hale Stutesman in Virginia Genealogist
vol.29 p.243-251, 1985 and his book on Watkins Family; Also VA Genealogist vol
33 p.65-70 1989.
LDS film #0001043 is disappointing here as it merely lists some kids of
a different Moseley of Charlotte Co. VA.


William L. MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

Married 13 Mar 1788 in Amelia County, VA to Rebecca Clarke Townes (1765-1846).
Automated Archives, Inc CD #4, Mar. Rec: VA, T520. He was an attorney who
practiced in Powhatan Co., VA.
LDS fhl salt lake microfilm #0001043 lists many more children and their spouses
and includes the caveat "possible son" with Edward C b. ca 1804/6 who surely
is brother of John T. and Wm A all 3 found on 1850 census Kemper Co MS
also there 1850 Robert Joel Moseley Jr, although he's apparently unrelated.


Phebe MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]


Joseph MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

See his FATHER'S NOTES here, for why JOSEPH MIGHT have been BORN AFTER 1680.
--but basically HE NEVER (almost never?) APPEARS in DEEDS or WILLS in the
1600'S. 1712 will in Norfolk Co. Book 9:235 and 9:246 and lists wife, Blandina
and child Frances.  To preserve all possible evidence of who their mother
might have been, see Norfolk Co. Deed Bk 8: 26 where Joseph deeds to brother
Benjamine soon after settlement of their father's estate: land part of Dowing?
Plantation on Tanner Creek, witnesses Edward Denby, Mary Power and Sampson
Power.
#0001043 LDS microfilm says 1708 deed his plantation on Jacksons Creek,
Norfolk Co or Princess Anne co, to his brother Benjamin. SOURCES: Blankenship,
pages 297-317; Combs, pages 1-26; Walter.
He was probably named after the Joseph who arrived by 1637: Va Pat bk 1:511,
or pp. 234-235 of Early VA Immigrants 1623-1666 by George C. Greer: a Jos.
Moseley was transported to VA, 1637 by Daniel Gookins, New Norfolk Co [the
uncle of Wm1Wm2's wife]. Va Pat bk 2: 226 is another early unknown Joseph in
York Co 1650.


Blandina BLAKE

[moseley1.ged]

Daughter of Arthur Blake. The name Blandina Moseley appears in several
Princess Anne Co, VA deeds in early 1700's. Most probably refer to this
Blandina (Blake Moseley, widow of Joseph and most of those in Norfolk Co. She
ended up with substantial land, since she was the widow of the oldest son,
from her father-in-law, Arthur. Among these was "Lambert's Point (Ib. V,
fo.162)" which land apparently same as land Arthur2Wm1 owned from Norfolk Deed
Bk. 05:123 (at that time ca 1690 in Lower Norfolk Co.). A Norfolk Co. deed ca
1714 conveys that to a Richard Moseley, presumably #4170---as #4578 would
presumably have been too young or not born yet. [Although that is a  most
confusing conclusion, as #4170 also had a mother, a different Blandina, #1264
Blandina (Poole) Moseley]. The Blandina who appears in P.A.D.Bk 5:59 and 165
both times with a Richard, may also be #132 Blandina, but the Richard on p.59
is probably #4578. Blandina also conveys to mariner Richard Moseley of (Pr.
Anne Co.)  ca. 1714 land (Norfolk Deed Bk. 10:306) which originally sold to
Joseph from Tully Emperor (father-in-law of 3 different Moseley men), then ca.
1723 Richard sells it to a Thomas Wiles. Richard Moseley's name also appears
in Princess Anne Deed Bk 01:225 as a child in Wm1Wm2Wm3's will, 02:25 in 1709
same Richard rearranging inherited land with brother, 04:153 just as a witness
in 1727. Blandina was alive and not remarried on 19 Apr 1720 in Princess Anne
04:059 yet she was not mentioned in her father's 1 Feb 1726 will, Princess
Anne Will Bk 04:092 she might have been dead or possibly she was omitted
because she already was a large landowner, as the Blandina, witness, in
Princess Anne Deed Bk. 05:059 of 1735/6 may be the same widow, from her
association with the  Richard in that deed.
ALTERNATIVE COMPILATION: Iris Borg noted FRANCES MOSELEY's name IN Pr Anne Co
Va Deed Bk 4: 92 will of Arthur Blake probated 1726: Frances Moseley is
sandwiched in between Frances (Blake) Pairtree and her husband's name. Iris
suggests possibility that Frances Moseley might be her dtr by earlier marriage.


Frances MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

Only child listed in will. Death of Mrs. Frances Moseley from page 20 Creecy's
Loose Papers. This is slightly more likely to be #4531 Frances since this #140
Frances was last mentioned in Princess Anne Deed Bk 04:092 in 1726. However,
from slaves mentioned in 05:048 (only one Amy) and from slaves mentioned on
p.20 of Loose Papers book : 5 slaves all apparently very expensive ca 50
pounds (tobacco? rather than sterling). More likely #140 would have 5 slaves
since she was apparently the sole heir of the sole heir of an oldest son,
Arthur a large land owner.
ALTERNATIVE COMPILATION: Iris Borg noted FRANCES MOSELEY's name IN Pr Anne Co
Va Deed Bk 4: 92 will of Arthur Blake probated 1726: Frances Moseley is
sandwiched in between Frances (Blake) Pairtree and her husband's name. Iris
suggests possibility that Frances Moseley might be her dtr by earlier marriage.


William MOSELEY Capt.

[moseley1.ged]

William, mariner was of age by 4 Jan 1692/3 (Pr. Anne Deed Bk 1:30-31):
mentioning that their land was part of 12 Oct 1641, 640 ac land patent in
Linhaven, Princess Anne Co. by their grandfather, John Gookin. It explains how
his daughter, Mary #701 married first their father Capt Wm Moseley, but now
their stepfather was Lt Col Anthony Lawson.  on 4 Mar 1695/6 his cousin Wm was
called "Wm Moseley Sr, son of Arthur" in Pr Anne DB 1:117, and likewise his
DB1:225 will Jul 1699 he calls himself "Wm Moseley Jr son of Capt Wm dec'd".
Pr. Anne Co DB 2: 79 Aug 1711 calls him "son and heir of Capt Wm Moseley decd".
In DB1: 225 will he names his children for the first time in this order:
first Mary, then Wm, then Richard, and finally Elizabeth. So I compiled them
in that order. In 1691 he gave Mary land in Norfolk Co VA DB 5: 144, (p.299
Blankenship book).
Va Patent book 8: 64 of 21 Apr 1690 says Wm Moseley Jr got patent of Richard
Poole's adj. Geo Poole etc by virtue of having married Poole's sole heiress.

 Children: The will says Mary was born to 1st wife Blandina, and it gives
mother's effects to Richard strongly hints he also from Blandina as 2nd wife

Mary SAYER

[moseley1.ged]

Princess Anne DB 1: 254 in 1700 by her father, Francis Sayer, related Mary not
only to her late husband, Wm Moseley but also to her second husband Thorowgood
(no first name given). See p.618 Adventurers Of Purse And Person by  Dorman.
Pr Anne Co Va Deed Bk 2: 165 confirms her 3rd marr Jun 1712, but was earlier
Deed The "Margaret Sayer" in the important Moseley deed Princess Anne Deed Bk
04:541 is not a daughter, but rather a daughter-in-law, of that Francis Sayer,
i.e. Margaret #6456, (daughter of Anthony Lawson & Mary [Gookin] Moseley), who
had by 1722 married Francis's son Charles Sayer.
Norfolk Co. Va. Deed Bk 6: 246  Jun 15 1702: "Maj Adam Thorogood having
married Mary Moseley, exec. of Capt Wm Moseley decd".
Princess Anne Deed Bk 01:249 inventory of William #702 will, shows widow had
remarried by May 1700. Princess Anne Deed Bk 01:254 July 1700 Francis Sayer
gives to #1310 Mary Throwgood his "well beloved daughter", the then wife of
Capt. Wm Moseley, etc. Princess Anne Deed Bk 03:159:  Her son-in-law,
Benjamin's will names his wife, Elizabeth's uncles, Richard and Charles Sayers.
  Page 257 and 262 of Moseley Vol 2 looks to me like #1310's mother was
Frances Sayer's 1st wife Martha; although those pages say the mother was his
2nd wife Frances Mason b.1661 (daughter of Lemuel Mason and Anne Sewell) widow
of George Newton.
Pr Anne Co Deed Bk 3: 260 appears to says that Adam Thorogood didn't die until
1719, rather than the 1709 date I had, that would make Kingman marr after that.
See also Princess Anne Co Va court minute book 3: 175 July 1723.

mistaken identity mixup with Mary #1310 who did in fact marry that Thorowgood.

Mary SAYER

[moseley1.ged]

Princess Anne DB 1: 254 in 1700 by her father, Francis Sayer, related Mary not
only to her late husband, Wm Moseley but also to her second husband Thorowgood
(no first name given). See p.618 Adventurers Of Purse And Person by  Dorman.
Pr Anne Co Va Deed Bk 2: 165 confirms her 3rd marr Jun 1712, but was earlier
Deed The "Margaret Sayer" in the important Moseley deed Princess Anne Deed Bk
04:541 is not a daughter, but rather a daughter-in-law, of that Francis Sayer,
i.e. Margaret #6456, (daughter of Anthony Lawson & Mary [Gookin] Moseley), who
had by 1722 married Francis's son Charles Sayer.
Norfolk Co. Va. Deed Bk 6: 246  Jun 15 1702: "Maj Adam Thorogood having
married Mary Moseley, exec. of Capt Wm Moseley decd".
Princess Anne Deed Bk 01:249 inventory of William #702 will, shows widow had
remarried by May 1700. Princess Anne Deed Bk 01:254 July 1700 Francis Sayer
gives to #1310 Mary Throwgood his "well beloved daughter", the then wife of
Capt. Wm Moseley, etc. Princess Anne Deed Bk 03:159:  Her son-in-law,
Benjamin's will names his wife, Elizabeth's uncles, Richard and Charles Sayers.
  Page 257 and 262 of Moseley Vol 2 looks to me like #1310's mother was
Frances Sayer's 1st wife Martha; although those pages say the mother was his
2nd wife Frances Mason b.1661 (daughter of Lemuel Mason and Anne Sewell) widow
of George Newton.
Pr Anne Co Deed Bk 3: 260 appears to says that Adam Thorogood didn't die until
1719, rather than the 1709 date I had, that would make Kingman marr after that.

LDS film #0001043 confuses
this john with another contemporary john moseley in some respects.


Arthur MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

We are troubled that his apparent father John Moseley died in 1802 reportedly
without mentioning Arthur of Bedford Co. in John's will. However, our evidence
still points to John as father, because of Williamson name in both families.
Also we recall John's probate as mentioning having so much Bedford Co. VA estat
that a special court provision was set up to probate that part of the estate.
********************
THIS ARTHUR (and especially his children) MAY IN LARGE PART BE AN IDENTITY
CONFUSTION WITH ARTHUR, THE SON OF BROTHER BENJAMIN MOSELEY BORN ABT 1758
Pending further identification of the correct ancestry,THE CHILDREN LISTED
here ARE DUPLICATE   entries WITH those listed for THE OTHER ARTHUR;
********************
Arthur and Pamelia, had a son Arthur, Jr., who died in infancy.
Bedford County Will Book 3C pages 101 and 106.
Arthur lived near the first county-seat of Bedford County, called Arthur I, is
frequently mentioned in the records of the County Court. He was a "Viewer of
Roads." He served on the Grand Jury; was Commissioner of the Peace. In 1779 he
was appointed a Second Lieutenant in the Revolutionary Army. He furnished
provisions for the Army. Appointed a Surveyor of Roads in 1780; ordered to
take the list of taxable property and tithes in Capt. Joseph Poindexter's
Militia Company in 1782. He was Sheriff of Bedford County, dying in office in
1803.
*****************
!SOURCES: LDS FHL film #0001043 says this Arthur founded the Bedford co VA line.
Moseley Genealogy (Book) by George Carrington Moseley, the book was
originally in the Institute of American Genealogy in Chicago but I don't know
where Mary Lou Scribner xeroxed it; Notice the CLAIMED descent near John
Moseley of Chesterfield Co b. ca 1721 also that John later married Elizabeth
Williamson; although the son, Arthur Moseley of that marriage is thought to be
a different Arthur from the Bedford Co one, George C Moseley author of book is
surely incorrect about Arthur being brother of above John b.1721 or so, and
maybe not the son, but son of an earlier marriage before Elizabeth Williamson
is as good as I can do at first.
  I MERGED THE TWO CONFLICTING SONS I HAD NAMED ARTHUR:
maybe this came from John Stutesman's files that there were an Arthur and a
Richard surviving after 1820;
That would not fit together well at all with the Bedford Co, VA, Bennett
Williamson Moseley information but I merge them together because it is
suggested strongly by the  Moseley descendancy without source information Feb
1996, Joseph Evans, 5103 Williams Fk Tr #109, Boulder, CO 80301-3417.

Moseley-- unfortunately that does not fit in easily with a bunch of children
of Thomas Moseley son of Arthur, who were born right after 1760;
compare the other Thomas Moseley R-43767, son of Thomas; ? Jane Stonar
marriage 4 dec 1780 in Amelia Co. ?: (there are no such names anywhere in

is remembered in his grandmother's will where he receives "one negro boy named

Born near Henrico-Goochland county line. Rose, "Turpin Notebook," cites
Edward's parentage, as verified by Deed Book 5: 139, Goochland Co., and Will
Book 2: 59, Albemarle Co., where Martha Moseley's mother and brother name some
of Martha's children. Edward's birthplace is presumed from his father's will;

investigations and research of this Charlotte branch of the Moseley family and
his use of genealogical methodology has solved the controversy of  Edward
Moseley and his family. Edward was not born in 1718, but rather approx 1730.

will he named eleven children. They are not identified as to whether their
mother was Ann (Bedford) Moseley or Sarah Williams (Hutcherson) Moseley.  It

it definitely is the source of the assertion that Edward's first wife was
Billie Elliot, Ricky says Meacham does make incorrect assertions but that
there were Elliots in Charlotte Co at that time, and some families were nearby.
Ricky apparently looked at the 1820 census for son William in Charlotte Co.
Ricky apparently traced  all the children in KY and TN to at least 1850 and to
death for William, and Robert. Ricky says these "Moseleys left Charlotte Co

Elizabeth MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

Born probably in Cornwall Parish, Lunenburg County VA. Probably NOT 4 Jan 1759!
Will Book 3 (1805-1813); 96, Charlotte Co. (legal suit), 159-62, 259; Order
Book 19: 144, 156, 159, Charlotte Co.; 1810 U.S. Census, Charlotte Co.,
p.1023,    shows female aged forty-five or older.
No marriage record found in Charlotte County. She may have been called Betsy
and may have died near Red Oak, but document calling her Betsy is questionable.
 For documentation see Warren L. Forsythe, "Resolving Conflict between
Records: A Spurious Moseley Bible,"; "The Bouldin Family" by John William
Bouldin; Richard Bouldin had 7 children in 1782 census, increasing the chance
that he   had been married previously;
1810 US census FHL microcopy 0181428, p. 1023: 10001 - 12311; LDS FHC
microfilm 1035535, item 2; No marriage in Mecklenburg Co. records; Charlotte
Co. Will Book 3 (1805-1814): 96: Richard Bouldin sues about the    provisions
of Edward Moseley will!;  Will Book 3 (1811): 159-162, 259;  Order Book 19
(1813): 144, 156, 159; Tyler's Quarterly V (July 1923):
 From the above Court Order Books for Charlotte Co, Clarene Russell of Memphis
says Richard may have had 3 categories of children: (1) older children who
already got their distribution and may not have been listed in will---(2)
first   children named in will as the "older children", and (3) the younger
children named in will.  We may misunderstand and there were maybe not those 3
separate   categories of his children.  Also the appearance of separate
categories leads   some people to speculate that Richard may have been married
before his wife   Elizabeth (Moseley).

Tully MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

#LDS film 0001043 makes me unsure of which Tully married Eliz Hunter 1820
we are sure he was not son of malachi, but this closest on family tree that
we can compile the uncertain tully rleationship for now.


Elizabeth HUNTER

[moseley1.ged]

Princess Anne Will Bk 04:082, 13 Nov 1828 - 1 Dec 1828 Eliza W. Moseley will
(probably #3033) mentions only Hunter cousins, etc. only other Moseley
mentioned is security by Dennis Moseley, possibly #1818. In a general way the
Hunter cousins are probably related to #4562 Frances (Moseley) Hunter family,
but specific identity Hunters doesn't seem possible.
