Moseley Family Genealogy Forum
In association with your advisory about Alabama pioneers, of related interest may be my 380-page book completed in 2008 about the 'Mozley' family of northwestern AL. Archibald McDaniel ('A.M.') Mozley & wife Sarah arrived in Marion County from Tennessee during the early 1820s. They settled shortly west of present-day Guin townsite, in which vicinity the family thereafter resided continuously through the Civil War years. While a number of familymembers remained at least well into the 1900s within Marion & derivative Lamar Counties, others began drifting westward as early as the latter 1870s, thereafter settling in pre-Oklahoma Indian Territory. Descendant Frank Mozley became the family trailblazer to Indian Territory where he married in 1888 to 1/32nd Choctaw Laura Henderson, & thereafter participated in the Dawes Indian land redistribution process. In addition to the Mozleys, other northwestern AL pioneer families detailedly addressed include those of 'Harris' & 'Miller'. My good corresponding friend Mona Herrin contributed substantial detail about ancestry of 'A.M.' Mozley, dating back into early 1700s VA. For anyone wishing to learn more, please post a GenForum followup, or e-mail me, directly. Many thanks, Bob Mayse
