  • Biographical / Historical

    Sarah H. Moss was the daughter of Rufus and Elizabeth Moss. Julia Pope Moss was her aunt. Rufus and Julia were the children of John D. Moss.

  • Scope and Contents

    The scrapbook contains attendance records, meetings minutes, program notes clippings, and devotionals. A letter with its envelope (from a John Moss to Julia and Sarah Moss) placed within the scrapbook has been separated. This John Moss is apparently a nephew to Julia; further research is necessary to clarify his connection, as the John Moss who fathered Julia and Rufus (Sarah's father) is not this John Moss's father.
