George Moss worked for C. T. Herring Lumber Company in Elmer, Oklahoma until it closed around 1915. He was then hired as manager of the White Deer Lumber Company in White Deer, Texas.

Lela described the move to White Deer in a speech she made at the age of 84.

"We came by train which arrived at the depot after dark. The sky was overcast, the aftermath of much previous rain. We were trudging along, carrying suitcases, bundles and personal belongings, our feet laboriously heavy with black, gluey mud for there were no sidewalks except an occasional few feet of plank.

"I asked Mr. Moss, 'Well, where is the town?'

" 'We are right in the middle of it now,' was his answer."
