In Reply to: wendell ray mossman (ben),1900's, iowa by Patty Mossman of 294

I am a second cousin to Ben Mossman. My grandmother, Edna Jean Mossman Ridout was the sister of Arnie Mossman. Lou and Arnie were/are Ben's parents. They also had a son Dale (somewhere near Minneapolis), and a daughter but I can't remember her first name. Her married name was Green and she lived in Belmot Iowa. Ben and Nancy Mossman (his first wife) lived in Grundy Center, Iowa and were into showing ponies. I don't remember the class but the Wendall Ray , their son and Nancy, their daughter, were dressed up in old fashioned clothes and the cart was decorated. The last I knew Ben and his second wife lived in New Mexico or Arizona. Wendall Ray used to live in Minnesota and Nancy married a man from Ackley, Iowa. Lou and Arnie were geat folks. Arnie was crippled and loved to tease the kids that he could out run us in a foot race. Lou and my Grandmother were great friends and I remember them talking about the time their Model T broke down in the pasture and the bull chased them. Those two could laugh!! Hope this helps. I am looking for information on Arnie's and my Grandmother's background here in Virginia -- Grayson County. Any help?
