Mozelle grew up near Raines Crossroads. Josiah didnít believe in girls working out in the fields. Leafy and Mozelle worked in the house with Minnie. Making the beds was one important duty. They fought some as all siblings do. Sometimes Leafy would pin Mozelle to the wall and scratch her, no doubt for past sins.

Minnie took Mozelle and Leafy with her to the Mormon Church. They both joined and were active members.

Mozelle loved horses. When she was 10 years old Josiah bought her a horse. Mozelle spent many happy hours riding her horse about the neighborhood.

Mozelle had a very good singing voice. When a neighborhood choir was formed she was one of the first invited to join. The choir traveled to different churches singing.

Mozelle attended school in Kenly until she completed the seventh grade. She started going with Glenn Coy Campbell. Glenn came from a well-to-do farm family. There were unconventional. They believed in sleeping late and working late. It wasnítí unusual for them to rise at 9 or 10 and work in the fields until well after dark.

Josiah thought of them as lazy farmers. Certainly not a family he admired although they did seem to be successful.

Mozelle inherited the temperament of Josiah. She tended to be short tempered and not willing to put up with nonsense.

Glenn was the son of Edward F. Campbell and Rittie B. Sullivant. Edward and Rittie married on Dec. 19, 1909. Glenn was the grandson of William and Pernsey Campbell. Edward owned a several tenant farms.

Over the years Mozelle had a variety of jobs from working in a Talon zipper factory, to being a hostess, working in a diner, and in sales. As soon as Mozelle was thrust out in the public she realized there was a positive response when she took pride in her appearance. Mozelle was a lady who looked like a lady.
