1896 :: Death of James E. Mosely, Sr.
Rockdale, Tex., July 29. -- James Edward Moseley, Sr., died yesterday morning at 2 o'clock at the residence of his son, J.E. Mosely, Jr., nine miles southwest from Rockdale, in the 83d year of his age. Mr. Mosely was an ex-confederate soldier. He was living in Mississippi when the war broke out, and served in the army of Tennessee. After the war was over he removed with his family to Texas and settled in the community where he died. About a month ago Mr. Mosely fell from the front gallery of a neighbor's house and hurt himself, from the effects of which he never recovered. He was under the care of a physician but twice in his life. Galveston Daily News, July 31, 1896
