Descendants of James Mozley

10. DAVID3 MOZLEY (EDWARD2, JAMES1) was born Bet. 1770 - 1780 in VA, and died Abt. 1850 in Rabun Co., GA. He married ELIZABETH ANN OXFORD TERRELL Bet. 1797 - 1800 in Prob. SC, daughter of HENRY TERRELL and ANNE DABNEY. She was born 1772 in Bedford Co., VA, and died Bet. 1860 - 1870 in Marion Co., AL.

Notes for D
According to Melody Hauch, David spelled his name Mozley as did Henry Terrell Mozley to begin with. It is spelled Mozley and Mozeley in records. "In a microfilm copy of the original 1800 Pendleton Co., SC Census, his name is clearly spelled 'David Mozeley'." Melody states that the first record found of him was in 1792 in Franklin Co., GA Franklin is located next to Wilkes Co. David was found in the 1830 Rabun Co., GA Census. It is unknown whether David moved to Wilkes Co. with his father. The Terrells lived in Albemarle and later, Bedford Co., VA about the same time as the Mozleys. They moved from Bedford Co., VA to present-day Stokes Co., NC about 1784 and to Pendleton Co., SC around 1792. Melody goes on to state that the marriage of David Mozley and Elizabeth Terrell appears to have taken place between 1797 and 1800 because Henry's will written in 1797 refers to her as Elizabeth Terrell. There are many references to both Elizabeth and David Mozley and citations that read "David Mozley who intermarried with Elizabeth A. Terrell. There is a great deal of information available concerning David Mozley.

Mozeley, David SC PENDLETON DIST. pg. 36 1800

I male under 10 (born 1791-1800)
2 males 15-25 (born between 1775-1785)
1 male 26-44 (born between 1756-1774)
1 female 26-44 (born between 1756-1774)
They owned 7 slaves.

David would appear to have been born about 1770-1774, according to this census. Elizabeth is supposed to have been born in 1772, which is confirmed by this census.

1810 Census Pendleton Dist., SC:

David Mosely: 30010-10101-6

3 males under 10
1 male 26-44
1 female under 10
1 female 16-25
1 female 45 and over
They owned 6 slaves.

This may be my David Mozley. The documented ages of the children correspond with the ages indicated on this census. I don't know who the 45 and over female is.

D. Mosely:

3 males under 10
1 male 26-44
1 female under 10
1 female 26-44
They owned 2 slaves.

Or this could be my David Mozley. The ages are also correct for this one.

In 1820, there was three David Mosleys in SC, one in Greenville Dist., SC, living near a Thomas Mosley; one in Spartanburg Dist., SC who was 16-25; and one in Pendleton Dist., SC. There are records that indicate that my David Mozley was in Rabun Co., GA by at least 1820, if not there around 1813-1815.

1830 Census Index for Rabun Co., GA
Census Year: 1830 State: Georgia Co.: Rabun Page No: 229, Enumerated by: Moses G. Anderson:

David Mozley: The first space is smeared, I am not sure if there is anything there or not-this would be the space for male child under 5 years old. In the next spot is what appears to be a 1, but it is backwards from all the rest, so it may be a 1 or just a mark, not indicating anything. The next age to be clearly marked is the of 20 and under 20, of 30 and under 40, and of 50 and under 60. There is no female marked as being in the household.

1 male 20-30 (Henry Terrell Mozeley-born 1801)
1 male 30-40 (William?, born about 1800)
1 male 50-60 (David)

David would have been about 60 in 1830. His sons would have been about 20-30, so the male 20-29 could have been one son, and if William were born in 1799, then the son 30-39 could have been him. Where is Edwin G.? And where is Elizabeth???? David had one male slave who was 5-10, one female slave who was 24-36, and one free male colored person who was 24-36.

Notes for E
Information from Melodey Mozeley Hauch a desc. of David Edwin Mozley thru Henry Terrell Mozley: Elizabeth Terrell Mozeley went to live with dau. Elizabeth who married Lewis A. White in the 1850s and 1860s. Elizabeth and Lewis White lived in Marion Co., AL They are # 258, Dist. #14, Marion Co., AL 1850. Also living near by was George Washington Terrell and Parmelia R. This is probably "Milly" Mozeley, the dau. of James H., and neice to David Edwin Mozley. In I found info on Henry Terrell Mozeley and Elizabeth OXFORD Terrell. I have Elizabeth A. Terrell in my data base. Apparently, Elizabeth's full name was Elizabeth Ann Oxford Terrell.

1850 census of Marion Co., Al, page 145A, Elizabeth Mozeley, age 73, born VA, living in the household of A. L. White.

  Notes for EDWIN G. MOZLEY:
There is an Edward G. Mozeley who is the clerk of the court in Marion Co., AL about 1850. There was an Edwin G. Mosley in the 1830 C. of Marion Co., AL living near Archibald McDaniel Mozley. There is a land patent for an Edwin G. Moseley for land in Marion Co., AL February 01, 1843. I believe that the Edwin G. Mozley in the 1830 census of Marion Co., AL is this Edwin G. He is the only one that I have found that was born between 1800-1810.

From (Copywrited 10/21/2001): MILITARY RECORDS: VIRGINIA IN THE REVOLUTION AND WAR OF 1812, Virginia Soldiers of 1776, Vols. I, II, & III, Virginia Soldiers, Pg. 1268-1269:
