Thomas was the son of John Griffith Mosley and Hettie Jane White, and husband of Nancy Elizabeth Viola Partain.
His first song, For Me, was published in Regal Singers in 1889. He taught his first singing normal in Marshall County, Alabama, in 1896.
For some time he conducted singing normals annually at Sand Mountain, Alabama. His singing schools drew students from all over the southeast United States, including Jesse Baxter, Vernie Fossett, John L. Shrader, Eugene Horton Whitt and Troy Daniel.
He worked for the A. J. Showalter publishing house for 30 years as an associate editor, director, and after Anthony Showalter’s death in 1924, editor-in-chief of the Music Department.
