    The birth of Maggie in Missouri indicates that Hettie and Robert movedto Missouri for a short time then back to Oklahoma.  Likely Robertdied in Oklahoma.  Sebastian County is across the border in Arkansas.There was a lot of movement of Terrry family members across the borderbetween LeFlore County, Oklahoma, and Sebastian and neighboringcounties in Arkansas.

    In 1930, the Moseley children Maggie and Woodrow were enumerated underthe surname Trotter of their stepfather.
