Hi, I am trying to connect some unlinked Mosbys to family, ancestors and descendants.James M. Mosby is one of them.
James was born in either 1845 or 1848 and died 2 January 1911.He lived in Louisville (Jefferson County) Kentucky.There are Mosbys in nearby Shelby County; perhaps that is his family.His wife was probably Jane Nourse, daughter of Anne Peak.Jane was born 17 November 1855.
Children include Pierce Mosby b. 1896 Jane Mosby b. 1900 and possilby Mary, John R., Jim and Effie.Other names in the family Bible include: Amelia Brown Mosby (b. 25 September 1881), Johnnie Russell Butler Mosby (b. 17 April 1893), James Eddie Holloway Mosby (b. 14 October 1884), Mary Susan Robinson Mosby (b. 6 July 1887), Pierce Habron Mosby (b. 28 January 1896)
and grandchildren identified as: Lucy Metcaffe Mosby (b. 7 April 1906), Effie Frye Mosby (b. 11 March 1908), Amelia Hasting Scott (b. 13 January 1909), and John Albert Scott (b. 20 March 1910)
I would very much appreciate hearing from anyone who knows anything about this family.Thanks much.
