b. circa 1810, d. between 1837 and 1840

4th great-grandaunt of Joseph Michael Flint
     It is certain that a daughter of John Stonecypher married Anderson Mosely and had children by him. This is proven by the estate records of John Stonecypher. That the name of that daughter was Lucy is less certain. I have yet to find a nineteenth century source that mentions her by name. Underwood in The Stonecipher Tree gives her the name of Lucy and cites a newspaper article 1890 which stated she was the youngest daughter but does not mention her name.2 Lucy? Stonecypher was born circa 1810.1 She was the daughter of John Stonecypher and Nancy Curtis.1

Lucy? Stonecypher married Anderson Moseley, son of Samuel Moseley and Susannah Bledsoe, circa 1830.1

Lucy? Stonecypher died between 1837 and 1840. She was alive in 1837 when she gave birth to her sone John. John Mosely was her son otherwise he would not have been an heir to his grandfather's estate. in the Anderson Mosely's household on the 1840 census there were no women of child bearing age, so she died by then.3,1
