Buckingham County: Tucker School

For many years, Julia A. (Tapscott) Moseley was the school teacher at Tucker School in northeastern Buckingham County. Above is the class picture taken circa 1890. Can a Slate River Rambling reader identify any of the students?

In 1877, Julia married M.L. A. “Matt” Moseley. They lived on the farm once owned by Randolph Jefferson’s son, Robert “Lewis” Jefferson, and later by his son, Elbridge G. Jefferson. The Moseleys had no children of their own and raised Julia’s nieces, Annie (Tapscott) Winfrey and Julia (Tapscott) Baber.
