We have been researching William Mosley, my husbands
great grandfather. We know he was born in Hawkins Co.

Tn in 1821. His father William Sr. we believe to be born
in N.C. They are reported on the 1830 census in Tn. as
being free color or we believe Melungeon. They both migrated
to Floyd Co. Ky and show up there on the 1840 census. I
don't know if this is your line or not but would like to
hear from you and exchange further information.

I don't know if your family is connected to our Mosleys or not. Samuel Mosley was in Clay Co. Ky.on the Tax record and on the 1830 census of Clay Co. he ,as well as his father was on the census. Later this part of Clay became Leslie Co. I think David Samuels father was born in Vr, but don't know where Samuel was born. It is possible that the family went to Tenn. and David moved to Clay Co. and later David came to live with Samuel and maybe other sons of David stayed in Tenn, and later came to Floyd Co. Ky. I don't know how to connect them tho. Keep in Touch and maybe we can connect them. Helen Mills

My great grandmother was Mary Ellen Mosley Payne. She married Joel G. Payne, born September 3, 1872, Swain County,NC, died December, 1964. He married Mary Ellen Mosley, born September 30, 1880, died April 13, 1944. Both are burried in the Law's Chapel Baptist Cemetary, Blount County, TN. Children; Adam, Riley, Pleas, Reuben, Taylor, and Hessie May (Burchfield). Joel Payne was remembered for the excellent chimneys he built in North Carolina. He helped build the Calderwood Dam. A beautiful picture of Mary Ellen Mosley can be found in a book titled, HOMESTEADS OF THE GREAT SMOKIES, a history of the Paynes and related families by Hazel Payne Jennings. I am so thankful for Hazel's hard work and dedication to saving our family heritage. Hazel lives in Walland, TN. and the book was published by The Davis Printing Company Maryville, TN. 1992.

Dear Helen, I read your message and Dorothy's on the Moseley families. My Moseley family comes from Prince William county, Virginia. I was told by my dad that we had Native American blood. I have been researching this heritage. I noticed these same names are also on the Melungeon board. My Moseley line starts with Robert Moseley Sr. died 1787. His son was Lt. Robert Moseley of the Revolutionary War. He married Sarah Peake. Their son Elijah Moseley married Mary Polly Barnes in 1810 in Ohio county, Kentucky. Mary Polly Barnes parents were Richard Barnes and Elizabeth Pigman. Richard Barnes father was Weaver Barnes. Elizabeth Pigman's father was Nathaniel Pigman. The Barnes,Pigman and Moseley families were from Maryland first I think and then went to Virginia. Robert SR. Moseley's first wife was Magdeleine Guerrant. She was from the French Huguenot families of Manakintown, Virginia. Do you have any information on these families? I appreciate any information. Thank you Ivolou Ward

If you have any information about Needham I could use it in my search and will certainly share the information I havehave. LLD
