John T. Mosley, b. VA, died Washington Co., AL
Posted by: Mona Herrin (ID *****0645) Date: February 25, 2011 at 03:31:08

I am trying to verify the ancestry of John T. Mosely/Moseley of Washington Co., AL. This is what I have so far:

Descendants of John T. Mosely


Generation No. 1

1. JOHN TURNER1 MOSELY was born Abt. 1791 in Virginia, and died Bet. January 04 - February 02, 1864 in St. Stephens, Washington Co., AL. He married (1) ELIZABETH LAFOY 1804 in Carnesville, Franklin Co., GA. He married (2) MARY "POLLY" HARWELL January 23, 1841 in Washington Co., AL. She was born Abt. 1800 in ?SC ?GA.

Notes for JOHN TURNER MOSELY:
DNA links this family to the Mozley family, but we don't know exactly who is the progenitor of this line.

According to census records and land records, John T. Moseley was born in Virginia between 1783 and 1791, probably moved to Georgia with his parents, and moved to Alabama by 1830, recording land under the names of John T. and his son, Milledge Mozley. These originial records can be seen at the following URL: http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/ and using the search function. This is the home page of Bureau of Land Management General Land Office Records.

There was a John T. Mosley listed in the 1810 and 1818 tax records for Franklin Co., GA. I believe that he was also there in 1820, but I have not found confermation of that. Research records found on Ancestry.com and Rootsweb name his first wife as Elizabeth Lafoy who he married in Franklin Co., GA in 1804. I have not found this marriage in the on-line records. There was a James Lafoy who recorded land in Washington Co., AL Sep 1,1845. Milledge O. Moseley was born in GA, reportedly in Milledgevile, Baldwin Co., GA.

John T. Mosely wrote and signed a will Jan. 4, 1864. He was deceased by Feb 2, 1864 and his will was recorded Mar 26, 1864. His wife Polly was living at that time. They both are reported to be buried in the Moseley Cemetery in Washington C., AL in unmarked graves.

Milledge is the only son named in John T, Mosely's will. John also named his wife Polly. Evidence supports there being other children and well as the son Robert who was in his household in the 1850 census.
