Florence "Florrie" Beck Moss 1862-1957

Florence Beck was a daughter of James Pinckney Beck. Pinckney was born around 1803 in Sampson County NC. His first wife was Sarah Cromartie, older sister of my maternal great grandmother Julia Clark Cromartie of Bladen County NC.

Florence was born in 1862, child of Pinckney's 2nd wife Elizabeth. Florence's obit published in the April 18, 1957 edition of Grenada County Weekly mentions her brother Dave Beck who was at one time Sheriff of Grenada County. Dave was actually Florence's half brother, born in August 1854, child of Sarah Cromartie Beck. David is listed as David W. Beack, occupation Circuit Clerk in 1900 Grenada County census.

According to, Florence and husband Walter are buried in Odd Fellows Cemetery. In the Moss plot photo at FindAGrave, there are 4 older looking grave markers.

Florence's son Jimmie DeMent Moss(1887-1975) and grandson James DeMent Moss, Jr.(1915-1984) are buried in Woodlawn Memorial Park Cemetery.

I am searching for burial locations of Pinckney and David. Pinckney died sometime after 1880 Grenada County census. David died sometime after 1910 Grenada County census.
