J. R. Mosby, a prominent citizen and successful merchant of Wellsville, was born at Jackson, Ky., Oct. 5, 1873, the son of Thomas J. and Marie (Wombell) Mosby. Thomas J. Mosby, deceased, was born in Westmoreland County, Va. He spent his entire life in the show business and for many years was connected with the Barnum & Bailey circus. He served as a colonel in the Civil War. Mr. Mosby met anaccidentaldeath in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1899, and is buried there. He was a Democrat, a member of the Baptist Church and a 33rd degree Mason. His wife, who was a native of New York City, died in California, Aug. 7, 1893. She was thefirstnative born American woman to train wild animals and until her death was interested in the circus business with her husband. Mr. and Mrs. Mosby were the parents of the following children: Thomas J., deceased; Frank F., lives in BuenosAires, S.A.; George A., who was lost in the wilds of Africa in 1903; Jeff was killed during the Spanish-American War while serving as a first lieutenant of the 18th Cavalry; J. R., the subject of this sketch; Emma, twin sister of J. R., thewidow of HaroldSimmons, lives in Manchester, Eng.; Rev. William, a minister of the Baptist Church, lives in Washington; Marie, married L. C. Stevens, a ranch owner, Argentine, South America; Samuel, deceased; Charles, an importer, lives inChina; A. G., lives inSouth America; and Robert, deceased. J. R. Mosby spent his boyhood in Kentucky, attended military school there and enlisted in the army. He served throughout the Boer War as a captain of Battery B, First Transvaal Artillery. After his return from Africa he went to New Orleanswherehe organized a fillibustering expedition against Colombia. After landing at Colon, Panama, he marched to Panama City with 85 men and raised the first flag of rebellion that gave the United States the Panama strip. He then took part intherebellions of Nicaraugua and Honduras, returning to the United States, where in partnership with his brother he organized the Mosby Brothers Greater Shows.

I have spent a lot of time chasing Jack thru records and books – even paid a research person in South Africa. I have a large pile of circumstantial evidence to support the family stories which strongly match several written accounts of hislife.The big but is – I have not found the first document that identifies him prior to July of 1910 when he walked into the marine recruiting station in Butte Montana. There are many news articles across the nation about him from early 1911 tolate1912 and I have things like his seaman’s papers from 1917. The wonderful mystery I’m pursuing is who he was prior to that July. Here is a piece of an email [I wrote] to Mr Taylor: A little history of my quest: I just retired this past year and have been helping my elderly mother go through her papers. I discovered this wonderful character mostly by notes of his life from what his wife and daughter could remember manyyearsafter hearing the stories. Jack is much the mystery to my mother - she was 16 when he died - and she deeply admired him. I set out to compile and document the stories and just keep finding more and more enigmas. I have chewed my way back toJulyof 1910 with very high confidence of who/what/where, but reasonable evidence of any of his stories from prior to this date continues to elude me. Even his birth given name (and therefore his father's name) is in some doubt to me. An example: Jack's seaman's papers from 1917 list Thomas L Cate, banker of Chattanooga Tennessee as his next of kin (uncle) to be notified should Jack die. By my grandmother's notes, Sarah E Cate of Niota Tn was his grandmother. I live about5miles (just coincidence) of where these two people where born and raised in the early 1800's. Jack's stories reflect in-depth knowledge of this family, but, there are no Mosbys or ties to Mosbys in their genealogy. Add in that TL Cate hadbeendead 5 years when Jack filled out these papers and swore to their veracity.... Geoff

TREATE, Lower California, May 2. -- "Jack" Mosby lies badly wounded in the camp of the rebels here, two other members of his band are slightly wounded, and two Mexican Federal soldiers are dead as the results of an unexpected meetingofskirmishing parties ten miles southwest of Treate last night. Mosby was in advance of his men and was shot from ambush. He fell from his horse, but continued to direct his men. The two parties, comprising about fifty men, came upon one another unexpectedly and began firing at close range. The skirmish caused a change in the plans of the rebels for an advance on Tijuana, Lower California.
