My father-in-law passed away last year, and we are left with no information, no pictures, no family stories...nothing. In posting here, I'm hoping to find a distant cousin or local history buff who can shed some light on this branch of the Mosley family tree.
I'm seeking information on the family if John Wesley Mosley (1871-1949) & Sallie Johnson Veal (1874-1943). Vital records show several of their children were born in Wills Point & many are buried in Woodside Cemetery. Census records show the family living in Atoka, OK in 1910 & Van Zandt Co. in 1920, with vital records showing at least 4 of the children being born in Van Zandt prior to 1910.
We have been able to trace my husband's family back to this union, however, we've been unable to identify John Wesley's, mother, any siblings, or to confirm his father. His death certificate states he is a Jr., but many family trees I've encountered name his father as John William Mosley (1839-1919) and Hannah Hernigan [or Jernigan] (1843-1897). The records I've been able to track down, though, don't support this.
Although breaking down my brick wall & identifying John's immediate family is always tops on the list, we're interested in ANYTHING at all on this family.
Below is the information I've been able to confirm:
