Hash Family


James Henry Hash, wife Elmira (Ellie, Ella,Aunt Ellie) Mosier Hash, 
Joseph Thomas (Jodie) Mosier
Henry J Hash (aka James Henry Hash or J. Henry) is the son of James Hash, brother of Sarah Jane Hash Myers, daughter of John Mosier & Elizabeth Ratliff.
I don't believe Henry and Ellie had any children of their own; Joseph Thomas (Jodie) Mosier, s/o Samuel Carrington Mosier & Mary Catherine Cook Mosier.  Samuel Mosier was Elmira Hash's brother.

Elmira Ellie Mosier Hash was, I believe, the aunt of Jodie and Ida Mosier; that's why she and her husband took in the children when they were orphaned. 

Joseph T (Jodie) Mosier was Ida Elmira Mosier's brother.  Jodie and his sister Ida Elmira Mosier were raised by Henry and Ellie (Aunt Ellie) after both of their parents died.  Joseph T (Jodie) Mosier, age 10, and his sister Ida E Mosier, age 14, are listed as living with J Henry and Elmira Hash in LaClede Co. Missouri on the 1900 census, right before they moved to Grayson county, where they live during 1910 census.   Jodie Mosier then became the father of Sam Mosier, who married Florence Cook's sister Lottie Cook. 

 J. Henry Hash and Elmira S. Ella Mosier Hash were known as "Uncle Henry and Aunt Ellie".  They moved to Pottsboro from Missouri about 1900.  He was a farmer. His sister Sarah Jane Hash Myers would always send or bring James Henry Hash a can of tobacco and a pipe for Christmas, but he never used it. He died Thursday morning, 8:30 after a week long illness. He was buried at Georgetown Cemetery, north of Pottsboro Friday afternoon at 2:30 pm with the Short-Murray Funeral directors officiating.
After her husband's death, Ellie lived with her great-nephew Sam Mosier and wife Lottie Cook Mosier.  Sam is the son of Joseph Thomas "Jodie" Mosier, whom Elmira and Henry adopted after both his and his sister Ida Elmira's parents death (parents were Elmira's brother Samuel Carrington Mosier and Mary Catherine Cook Mosier) who died within a year of each other.

 Ellie died Monday night at 10:45 pm at Pottsboro from a stroke of paralysis which brought sudden death.  She was buried Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the Georgetown Cemetery with Church of Christ preacher Gardenhire officiating.

Sarah Jane Hash Myers (1860 - 1944) & brother Tom Hash standing in front of his house on "Hash Hill" near the corner of Locust Road and Georgetown road northwest of Pottsboro in late 1930s or early 1940s.  "Aunt Jane" as the whole community knew her as, came to live with "Uncle Tom" after her husband died in 1898 in Indiana, leaving her with several children.  Aunt Jane was loved by all the local young people because she was so much fun to be with; she would walk with them to church or to community dances and even act as chaporone on their dates.
