Ellen (close up) MOSELEY

Moseley Cemetery
Cleveland County,

Wife of M A Moseley
Sept 3, 1830 - July 13, 1900

Ellen Black emigrated to Aiken, South Carolina, from Bristol, England. The Black family lived in Aiken near where Mr. Harbers operated a mercantile store. Eventually Ellen and Mr. Black were married. After the death of Mr. Black, Ellen married Mason Moseley. Mason, Ellen, and his two brothers, William and Wiley, came by wagon to Cleveland County. The difficult wagon trip took the Moseleys to Memphis where they took a boat down the Mississippi River to Gaines landing, now known as Yellow Bend due east of McGhee, Arknasas.
Although no buildings have survived, a lone magnolia tree signals the original front yard of the Cleveland County Moseley homesite. Both Ellen and her husband Mason suffered long illnesses and died within a day of each other.
