Wikipedia entry. “Edward Moseley (born c. 1682 in England - died 11 July 1749), was the Surveyor General of North Carolina from about 1710 and the first colonial Treasurer of North Carolina starting in 1715. He was responsible (with William Byrd II) for surveying the boundary between North Carolina and Virginia in 1728. He was also Speaker of the North Carolina House of Burgesses (the lower house of the legislature) for several terms, as he was consistently re-elected by the people's party. He briefly acted as Governor of North Carolina while Gov. George Burrington was traveling out of the province.” (Submitted on April 16, 2010.)
