Alfred D Mosby's property in Bedford Co Va
Posted by: pcroft (ID *****3402) Date: February 25, 2003 at 21:21:52
  of 1045

from Bedford Co Deed book 44 page 321

1869 A. D. Mosby grantee James F. Johnson Comr &c 244A on Wolf Creek adjacent to Abram Shelton, John C. Richardson and others.
Thomas Campbell sold to Jesse and Elvira Minter but they failed to make the payments. With Minter and Campbell's permission, the land is sold to Mosby for $4,500.
this is the lot that John S. Mosby later gave to Virginia Mosby (see my post below) which had belonged to "Alfred D. Mosby during his lifetime" and was known as Mount Joy. This must have been a substancial farm and house to sell for such a price right after the Civil War.
