Mosely existed as an Upton County post office from 1906 until 1908. The station was named for the Ed Mosely family and was located twenty-five miles northeast of the site of present Rankin. The small community appeared on a 1929 state map but not on more recent county maps. County maps of the 1980s showed the area northeast of Rankin to be a sparsely settled oil-producing region.
