John Mobley (1840) son of Ichabod Mobley (1806)
Posted by: barbara craddock pike Date: January 15, 2002 at 13:48:25
  of 317

Through corresponding with Carl Mobley, and from info found so far, I have that:

John Mobberley (1657) & Ann Unknown
Edward Mobberley (1696) & Anne Unknown
Benjamin Moberley (1728) & Mary Price Hill
John M. Moberley (1758) & Nancy Jenkins
Ichabod Moberley (1806) & Patsey Oldham
John Mobley (1840) and Mary C. Unknown

Now, it's listed that Ichabod died in Talladega Co., AL in 1880. I have found him on the 1880 census in Talladega, listed as I. Mobley

I am pretty certain that I have found this John Mobley family in 1870 Pike Co., AL

1870 Pike Co., Alabama
John Mobley 29 M W Missouri Farmer
Mary C 27 F W Georgia Keeping House
William 8 M W Alabama
John 5 M W Alabama
Ichabod 2 M W Alabama
Caroline 14 F BLACK Georgia

The fact that the 3 children had the same names (even though John & Mary answered different birth places, I believe that MO and GA are correct, and the AL answers in 1880 are wrong), and that John had named a son Ichabod, leads me to believe that this is the right family.

This is what I've accumulated on the descendants of Ichabod Moberly:

Now, to my MAJOR question. Is there ANYONE with any further info on the family of this John Mobley, son of Ichabod.

I am trying to determine if the daughter listed in the 1880 census, as 8 year old Arrine, is my husband's great grandmother, Martha Irene (but she went by Irene) Mobley, b. 1871, who is reported to be the daughter of a John MObley. Now, some of her death records indicate that it was believed she was born in FL, BUT, she was 93 years old when she died, so it's quite likely that whoever gave that info was wrong. She died in Anniston, Calhoun Co., AL., in 1964, and had been married to Bart "Boss" Pike.

I have found an Ichabod Mobley in 1860 Madison Co., KY, which is probably him (any input?)

443/439 Ichabod Mobley 55 (but might say 35)M KY
Winnifred E. Mobley 17 F
Mary E. Mobley 1 F

Other Mobley families living nearby are:
Martha Mobley 68 VA (living alone)
James mobley 58 KY (wife Margaret 62 KY, and a Wm. Todd with family in household)
Joseph Mobley 32 KY (wife Margaret L. & children)

I suspect these are related, because I have found (online) that John M. Moberley & Nancy Jenkins Moberley (Ichabod's parents) died in Madison Co., KY, and that Ichabod was born there.

If there is ANYONE with any info, PLEASE contact me!
