    Notes 
    • Rev. Moss founded Hopewell Baptist Church in Blacksburg, South Carolina.

      Van Moss had 3 sets of twins; 2 sets by Mary Isabella Martin and 1 set by Mrs. Sallie Ray Morrison. Mary's first set (an unnamed boy and girl) died the next month. Margaret (2nd set) lived 3 weeks, but Nannie lived 16 1/2 yrs. The unnamed twin sons of Sallie died on the date of their birth. According to Joe Hart's records, Sallie had 2 infants born in 1893 and 1897.

      A William Moss, age 7, and a James R. Moss, age 6, are listed in the 1850 U.S. Census for North Carolina as residing in the household of Winney Moss of Cleveland County.

      Van is buried beside his first wife, Mary, in Canaan United Methodist Church Cemetery, Smyrna, York County, South Carolina, USA.

      Van served with the CSA during the Civil War. While thus far I haven't been able to determine with absolute certainty his unit, there is a William V. Moss listed as a Private in the roster of Company F, 17th South Carolina Infantry (confirmed by Jerry Millwood, Jr.).
