In Reply to: John Mosby Henrico Co. VA by K. Haefner of 1045

Here is what I have on your John Mosby Sr. - he was born 1687 or 1689 in Henrico County, VA, died in 1718. Married Martha Womack Nov 22 1708 in Henrico County, VA. (Her father was Abraham Womack, and she had another husband James Hambleton).

{John Sr.'s parents were Edward Mosby & Sarah Woodson. Their parents were Richard Mosby, & Robert Woodson & Elizabeth Ferris. And their parents were Edward (Edd) Mosby, John Woodson Sr., Sarah Winston, and Richard Ferris.}

John & Martha's children were: John Mosby Jr., Judith Mosby, Martha Mosby, Lucianna Mosby & Edward Mosby. Child unborn at death of father - not sure which one...

John Mosby Jr.s wife is Lucy Allen. And I find the following as their children: William (who married Rebecca Williamson in 1784), Mary Mosby, Elizabeth Mosby, Lucy Mosby, Hezekiah Mosby (who married Elizabeth Winston June 1794), Ann (Nancy) Mosby (who married Woodson Parsons september 1786), Martha Mosby, Robert Mosby, Samuel Mosby (who married Mary Anderson in 1794), Benjamon Mosby Sr. (who married Elizabeth Bacon)[he died in 1771], and Joseph Mosby Sr. born 1757 died 1832 Revolutionary War veteran.

When I do a print out on descendents of John Mosby Jr. I get the 12 children listed above plus their children - Their surnames are : Sheppard, James, Parker, Mullenburgh, Reid, Taylor,Ambrose, McCain, Valentine, Naylor, Crenshaw & Keeter. plus others.

Does this match anoything you have?
