Re: Mosely families in VA and NC
In Response To: Re: Princess Anne Co., VA Mosely & Keeling family ()
Also, the Mosely family was an early free colored family in VA, with descendants who migrated and settled in Southside VA and NC (per Paul Heinegg's book and website, Free African-American Families in VA, NC, SC, MD and DE (www.freeafricanamericans.com). He did extensive research in court records and has demonstrated that most free colored families in the colonial era in the Chesapeake Bay region were descended from white women, servant and free, and African or African-American men, slave, servant or free. His work is very detailed - a tremendous resource.
