Moseley family of Beaufort & Bute Co., NC
Posted by: Anita Kellum (ID *****6352) Date: July 31, 2012 at 02:01:01

I am confused about the Moseley's who were in Beaufort Co., NC in 1755 - William Sr. & Jr.; Thomas; and John.

I thought that the Moseley's of Bute Co., NC were descendants from the William Moseley of Occupacia Creek off the Rappahannock River in Essex Co., VA about 1705. Would they have traveled down the River to Beaufort Co., NC ???

Granville Co., NC Military 1754
Capt. Sugar Jones's Company --------140
James Mosely, Lieut.
38. William Richardson
66. John Brantly Junior
113. John Mosely

In the Granville (Bute) Co., Tax Digest of 1757 pg. 78 I see Moseley Sr. & Jr., so is it possible that the ones in Beaufort moved to Granville. Seems like a round-about move.

I think this is the family outline. Would like to chat with someone about the Moseley's.

Thanks,
Anita
