On the murder conviction, there was a death bed confession by another man. I was helping my grand mother take care if Eula when the sheriff came to tell granny of the man's confession. Of course Eula was bad with dementia and died that same year. Her husband as well as Jim both were executed.. this is a really said story..

Michael, this is pretty much everything I know about your great-grandfather's baseball career. If I come up with anything else, I will post it here. If you think anything in the letters you mentioned would be of interest, I'd love to hear about it. What a marvelous thing to find! Good luck with your research.

I enjoyed reading this about my great grandfather. I know very little about it. I've only heard rumors and fanciful stories about him playing baseball from older ones in the family. I did know my great grandmother Bertie.We all called her mama Bert. I am 57 years old. I am the first great grandchild of James Hubert Moss. And my mother was the first grandchild by his son Franklin. Thank you for the story. I have been doing some personal research myself even locating some letters possessed by the family that he wrote the year before he was executed. I do consider these as personal property of the family..But I would like to know more about him playing ball.
