Judith Mozely

Judith 28, travels on the last ship out of New York with Peggy 18, who is either daughter or sister since they are also together in the Birchtown muster and they ran at the same time. These two are part the runaways from Edward Hack Moseley that also included Tilla Mosely aged 16, who may be another daughter, and James Walker. We presume they ran in 1777.
