In Reply to: Re: Harrises in Whitesboro, Grayson Co., Tx. by Mona Herrin of 1676

I am in contact with a desc. of William Bethel Harris and Lillie Estell Mozley. Lillie is the daughter of Miles "Pike" Mozley and Mary Ann "Missouri" Smith. Miles is buried here in Birmingham with his brothers-Alexander Pinkston Mozley and Zachariah Taylor Mozley. Mary Ann Smith Mozley is buried in Dekalb Co., Al.

This is what I have:



Descendants of Miles Mozley


Generation No. 1

1. MILES6 MOZLEY (ISAIAH IRVIN5, SAMUEL G.4, EDWARD "EDWIN"3, EDWARD2, JAMES1) was born January 12, 1847 in Lithia Springs, Campbell Co., Ga., and died March 08, 1926 in Birmingham, Jefferson Co., Al.. He married MARY ANN SMITH Bef. 1868 in Prob. Ga.. She was born December 15, 1845 in Ga., and died February 03, 1916 in Dekalb Co., Al..

Notes for MILES MOZLEY:
Miles was a farmer. He was called Pike. Found in the 1900 Dekalb Co., Al. Cesus Index. His wife is listed as Misuria and Ernest T. and Annie B. live with them. Vol. 20. Ed 77, pg 5, line 59. Precinct 23, Crumleys. He obviously moved to Alabama after 1885.

1920 Census DeKalb Co., Al, Blue Pond Dist., ED 78, Pg 7B, HH# 130:
