Mrs. Benjamin Moseley, Indian Captive, 1812 Georgia
Posted by: Charles Lewis (ID *****9915) Date: January 20, 2006 at 20:40:28
  of 2293

I was recently re-reading the "Reminiscences of Thomas S. Woodward" which was published in 1859. Woodward is the one who identifies Robert of the Indians as the brother of Rev. Elijah Moseley. In part 6, he speaks about a battle on Milly's Creek in 2/1814 where they took the wife of Benjamin Moseley back from the Creek Indians. From my records, the captive would most probably have been Polly Parnell Moseley.
Does anyone have any further information on when, where, or any other particulars about this abduction? Of note, I am also researching the 11/6/1813 massacre and abduction at Hard Labor Creek, Rutledge GA.
