Please ignore my earlier post.
Since then I have found information that disproves what I posted earlier today.

Jacob and Priscilla Mosby's parents were Stephen and Alice Oneder Mosby. Stephen is the son of Jacob Mosby.

See below.

Jacob Mosby, of Cumberland Co., guardian of Jacob Mosby the younger an infant, only son and heir-at-law of Stephen Mosby late of said Co., deceased, deed to Poindexter Mosby of same Co. all that tract of land in Cumberland Co. whereon said Jacob Mosby in his life time and the time of his death dwelt containing by estimation 400 acres adj. Revd. Robt. McLaurine, Francis G. Steger, and Col. Thos. Tabb. Recites that "by decree of the general Court of this Colony bearing date at the Capitol the seventh day of May in the year of our Lord 1764 in a suit in Chancery there pendening in which Alexander Spiers, John Bowman & Company of the City of Glasgow merchants and partners were plaintiffs and Alice Oneder Mosby widow and Administratrix &c of the said Stephen Mosby deceased and the said Jacob Mosby the younger party to these presents his grandfather & guardian defendant it was among other things decreed and ordered that the said Jacob Mosby should sell" . . . the tract of land aforesaid.

Wit. Hezekiah Mosby, Poindexter Mosby. Dec. 14, 1764, Ibid, p. 550.
