In Reply to: Elijah Moseley, V.D.M, of Putnam Co. by Jim Boyd of 798

Hosea Holcombe, A History of the Rise and Progress of the Baptists in Alabama, West Jefferson Co. Historical Soc. 1974, AL, pp. 132-134:

The Calabee battle was fought on the 27th of January,1814. There were 1500 whites and 500 friendly Indians. Elder E. Monty [sic] of Putnam Co., Georgia, who had volunteered in Capt. Adams' company of riflemen, was in this battle. The Indians brought on the attack in the night, 17 whites were killed, and 132 wounded. Of the Indians 40 were found dead, but the number of wounded could not be ascertained.
. . .
Here, through this, then wilderness country, the glorious gospel of the blessed God was promulgated again and again, in the army in 1814, by our sainted brother E. Mosely, who was the first man that sounded the gospel trumpet in Macon Co. During the war, he was wounded in the mouth by a ball from the enemy. His precious dust rests in the silent grave in Dallas Co. . . .

Elijah Mosley was a executor of the will of James Rutledge along with Rebecca, the wife of deceased, and Thomas Rutledge one of the sons. 
-1820 Putnam Co GA Census: Elijah Moseley

Of note, I have an Arseneth Seale b. 1810 in GA who married into my Lee Family of Lamar Co MS. Was she the daughter of this couple?
