Moss → George & Frank
Moss → George & Frank
George and Frank Moss, twin brothers from Burke's Garden, had delivered cattle to a buyer in Baltimore. A pickpocket saw Frank put the money in his inside coat pocket, trailed him through the station, lost him temporarily, thought he found him again in a crowded streetcar, but it was really George. After a try or two to lift his wallet in the usual way without success, the pickpocket started cutting his coat with a sharp knife, still without success of course. When he cut through to the skin, George realized what was happening and grabbed the man, hollered to Frank for help, and turned the man over to a policeman. The brothers went on to the photographer for this picture. And this is the reason George is holding his arm so as to cover a bad flaw in an expensive suit of clothes. Frank Moss, in his youth, was the working partner of Major T.J. Higginbotham of Liberty, in buying cattle in southwest Virginia, driving them on foot to Pennsylvania and Maryland, fording the Potomac River above Washington, and loading them on cattleboats at Annapolis for England. This is the origin of the term "export cattle" for all cattle weighing over 1200 pounds.

The wonderful sugar tree orchard in foreground was a probable result of 'an improvement,' i.e., crop, made by William Ingles ca. 1750-1755. History has shown that when the virgin trees were removed, the natural regrowth was sugar maple. The twenty years or so of Indian wars and Revolution would allow a good start.
