MOSELY, TX (UPTON COUNTY)

MOSELY, TEXAS (Upton County). Mosely existed as an Upton County post office from 1906 until 1908. The station was named for the Ed Mosely family and was located twenty-five miles northeast of the site of present Rankin. The small community appeared on a 1929 state map but not on more recent county maps. County maps of the 1980s showed the area northeast of Rankin to be a sparsely settled oil-producing region.
