My grandfather is Samuel James Mosby, born in Covesville, Va (Nelson County) in 1872. He is one of seven siblings. Parents are Sam or Samuel and Charlotte Mosby. They had a farm. I am looking for information concerning the children and their descendants. Also, it is alleged that my grandfather died in a house fire in 1930 or 1931, but I am unable to find any information on this. I would like to locate his gravesite and the gravesite of my great-grandparents. My great grandfather, Sam Mosby, was born about 1846 in Va,and his brothers are Simon, Wilson and Robert Mosby. I have met the descendants of some of these brothers; however, none of my grandfathers siblings. I am looking for information and/or the names of the parents of the brothers. This may not be possible to locate. I am not sure if the brothers were born slaves, unable to determine this information. Finally, I am trying to locate my grandfather's first wife, name unknown. Again, it should be noted that these individuals are of African ancestry. Thank you for any assistance. As a postcript, it is possible that they were born on the plantation owned by John S. Mosby's family. In his bio, it is indicated that his father did own slaves.
