Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have done family research for over 30 years. I have 16,900+ names in my family tree database. Someone asked, "When will you be finished?" My answer, "The day I die." Then someone can post my memorial at Little River - Wilson Valley Cemetery.

Paternal Names: Tippit, Roberts, Brundrett, Collard, Cook, Cash, Stanford, Davis, and others.

Maternal Names: Henderson, Johnson, Marks, Pricer, Gallman, McGregor, Sanders, Thornton, Robertson, and more.

Wife's Family: Moseley, Crow, Grubbs, Adams, Veal, Mabry, Clinard, Baird, and more.

Cemeteries of Interest:
Little River - Wilson Valley, I have three sir-names that have five consecutive generations buried there. One of those sir-names has a 7th generation buried there. There will be the 6th generation buried there, but none of us have died yet.

Other Bell County Cemeteries have my kin buried there. Dyess Grove, Dyess Family, Holland, Bellwood, Hillcrest, Greathouse, North Belton, and others.

Milam County: Locklin, Walkers Creek, and others.

Houston Area: Woodlawn, Houston National, and others.

A great disappointment is the "Unmarked Grave". Too many times we have a strong idea were someone is buried, but how do we know for sure?

Re: Monti
You're very welcome, Joe, and thank you for the kind words. I had been checking for a marker whenever I went to Woodlawn since you had requested a photo quite a while back, so I was glad to see that new headstone, so I could get the photos for you. It's a beautiful headstone!

Thanks and best regards to you, too,

RE: Nettie Dunnam Moseley
Hi Joe!

This isn't conclusive, but if you visit Milam County at sometime in the future, you might have a look at the actual record and see if it is really written or signed as Netta.

L. D. Mosely, "Texas, Marriages, 1837-1973"
Name: L. D. Mosely
Spouse's Name: Netta Dunnam
Event Date: 18 Nov 1905
Event Place: Milam, Texas
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M75250-7
System Origin: Texas-EASy
GS Film number: 981391
Reference ID: Book 10 page 268

Do you know where L D died? Last I saw was when they were in the 1910 McCulloch Co., TX. Then Nettie was with her father in the 1920 census as a widow. What happened to their son, Willie?

RE: Sally Hay Zachry
Yes, Joe! The marriage of Sarah Hay "Sallie" Zachry and Alanson L Moseley is where the my Zachry and the Moseley lines connect! Sallie is a 1st Cousin, 5 Times Removed in my Zachry Family. Sallie is a granddaughter of my 5th Great Grandparents, John Rucker Zachry (1748-1813) and Sarah Taylor Hay (1750-aft 1827). Their daughter, Celia (1778-1848), is my 4th great grandmother by her marriage to Samuel Locklin (1770-1853).

The Find A Grave contributor that maintains Sallie and Alanson's memorials, J W Latimer (#47569689), has also done quite a lot of research on the Moseley family. If you've never corresponded with him - he is someone you might like to compare notes or ask questions of missing links, etc.

RE: Nettie Dunnam Moseley
Hi Joe!

I had never heard the name Wetta and so many times, the transcription is not correct. I studied the same census and looked at other W's entered on the page. I also looked for other M's, thinking her name might have been Metta. None of the W's and M's matched the beginning letter of her entry. I believe her name is Netta (Nettie) - not Wetta. Yes, they are twins. The birth date on Nettie's TX Death Certificate is shown as 1886, but is incorrect even though the informant was her father. They were both listed as age 16 on the 1900 census.

I would show her name as Netta and nickname "Nettie". It is up to you, of course!

Do you have any information on the mother? I understand from what I have been able to find on Ancestry family trees and from what death certificates I could find that she probably Sarah C Price.

Best Regards,

RE: Alma Moseley
HI Joe!

It would be great if you would add that information to her memorial.

I am pleased to transfer the Moseley's at the Locklin Cemetery to you for your wife's family. My Zachry family and the Moseley family are connected, as you know, but I have not been able to connect these Moseley burials to the Moseley's I have worked on .... at least not yet!

Have a great weekend!
