Florence was born September 23, 1866, in Elgin, Illinois, the daughter of Charles S. Moseley and his first wife Mary Josephine Gragg Moseley. After her mother’s death in 1873, Frindy was sent to Massachusetts to live with her father’s family. In 1876, Charles married Julia Daniels and in 1882 the couple moved to Limona, Florida. Florence joined the family at their pioneer homestead and would spend the rest of her life there helping Julia run the household and raise the younger children. Julia referred to her as the “dearest girl in the world.”
In December of 1885, the original log cabin that had been the family’s home in Florida for four years burnt down in a brush fire. If not for Florence’s actions, it would have been a total loss. The flames “burned off her eyebrows and hair around her face” as she reentered the cabin to save her stepmother’s two red-leather bound books and numerous letters. This act of bravery preserved the history of the Moseley family and their Homestead that Julia had been meticulously recording for years. Those letters would later become the basis for the edited book “Come to My Sunland” Letters of Julia Daniels Moseley from the Florida Frontier, 1882-1886.
Following the deaths of her parents, Frindy became the head of the household in 1918, and was the first custodian of the Moseley Collection. She remained at the Nest until her death on November 26, 1954 at age 88. She is buried in the Limona Cemetery with her family.
