Mosley took several photographs of Mrs. Amelia Morris, born in 1848, surrounded by her family at her 110th birthday celebration. One picture was printed in “The Social Scene” section of the Philadelphia Tribune. An article titled Centenarian Celebrates stated, “Mrs. Amelia Morris, who celebrated her 110th birthday anniversary August 9, observed the occasion Sunday, August 10, with a gala family reunion at the home of her granddaughter.”
