From me Warren “Tuck” Forsythe - genealogy172 (at) fairpoint.net
Yesterday we posted on internet, based on a decade of work, including DNA, by (details below) John E “Bo” Mosley and Janell Fleming and Karen Mosley
A tree of 56 of their grandchildren from the angle of Lucy wife of Jonathan Mosley, he born ca 1773 GA –posted athttp://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&d...
You have to click on people’s names there, to get what few documentary citations I included.
Small errors will continue to be found in a tree so quickly posted on the internet in 24 hours.
The following says ancestress Mrs Lucy Moseley born ca Jan 1785 GA had maiden name ISAM/ISHAMhttp://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&d...
While I find no confirmation for that maiden name at all, I used it for convenience/speculation
Sometimes if I assert such audacious speculations on the internet, then experts may respond, who otherwise
would never have taken the time to clue me in, as to what Lucy’s origin was?
Similarly I include reasonable, but unconfirmed speculation, that Jonathan Mosley’s mother Winnie/Winifred Myrick may be descended from
a branch of late 1600s Myrick family who migrated ca 1750 from Brunswick Co VA to NC in the Granville Co/Warren Co/Bute Co/Bertie Co area.
