a| Title from accession record..
a| Edward (Ned) Mosby was an American seaman on a whaling ship, who jumped ship in the Torres Islands probably in the 1890s and made his way to York Island where he settled, fathering a considerable family whose descendents are still the leading figures on the Island. At one time, he helped the French missionary priests from Thursday Island to the mountainous Kuni region of Yule Island. More background to this story may be found in accounts about Henri Verjus, the first French missionaries to go to New Guinea. -- Accession record.
